it’s tuesday and i am again participating in the “top ten tuesday”, which is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. this weeks topic is:
Top Ten Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends (Which characters do you have crushes on?)
heck yeah! i have been waiting for this topic to arrive like for forever! now i can finally say the word love all the time and i can gush and dream about my favorite male characters that i want to be with. i am soooooo excited. and no, i don’t apologize for saying “i love him” a lot. just accept that! 😀
this list only focuses on male characters, but i will definitely be doing a list with my crushes on female characters, because i have a lot of those too! 🙂
“top ten male book characters i have a crush on” (which means full on love for me)
1.) levi from “fangirl” by rainbow rowell
there is one big reason, why i love levi so much. unfortunately i can’t share that one yet. 😛 but basically, i love that guy. i love his development in this book. i love how he interacts with cath, how he loves her, how he supports her and is there for her. i know, that he does some pretty stupid things too, but i forgive him, because well, he’s just amazing. ❤
2.) mark watney from “the martian” by andy weir
oh mark. my love for you is endless. 😀 i love this man! he is funny, he is super smart. he is brilliant and he doesn’t loose hope. yes, he has his bad moments, but i think he manages them so well, that i really envy him. i think i would have never been able to react like he did, if i would have been in that situation. mark, you are my hero and i will always love you for the feelings you gave me while reading this book.
3.) kaz brekker from “six of crows” by leigh bardugo
if you didn’t know by now, that i am madly in love with kaz brekker, then where have you been all this time? i think i have mentioned this a couple of times now, haven’t i? 😀 this guy! he is like the worst of the worst, bu it like me some bad boy and he is the badest! i don’t know, i am always drawn to the bad boys and i totally know, that he’s the worst choice ever! but he has a place in my heart and this character will always be one of my favorites. i want him haha 😀
4.) finnick odair from “catching fire” by suzanne collins
yes, i am specifically chosing “catching fire” here, because we don’t ever want to talk about “mockingjay”. never! finnick. my dear finnick. oh my god, i remember when his character got introduced. i knew exactly, that i will love this guy and i was right. he became my favorite thing about this whole series and that’s a big thing to say, i know! i just love this character so much. and sam claflin in the movies is just the biggest bonus ever here. 😀
5.) kell from the “shades of magic” series by v.e. schwab
i fell in love with kell right from the start. i don’t even know why, but i knew straight from the beginning that he will be my favorite character in this series. and i was right. until the end, he was my favorite and i loved him. i loved the development he made, i loved his love for rhy, what he sacrifized. i loved how determined he was. i loved how lost he was. i could understand his decisions. this is such a cool character and i will always keep him in my heart. ❤
6.) mateo from “they both die at the end” by adam silvera
mateo! ❤ i love him so much. he is such a great character and i could connect so much to him. to his anxiety, to his fears and just everything he did. it was so relatable and i got a big crush on him, because to me, he was perfect. i loved how he developed throughout this book. what he did with his life, how he changed things around. it made me love him even more.
7.) dorian & chaol from “throne of glass” by sarah j. maas
yes you read right. i can’t choose. it’s not possible at all. i love both these guys after reading the first book. i don’t know what is going to happen in the other books, but after “throne of glass” i love both the same. dorian got me, when he confessed honestly to celaena. chaol got me from the start. it really is not easy to choose, because you can see their true feelings and i love how they interact with celaena. i wouldn’t want to be in her shoes, because i can’t choose either. i have a crush on both of them.
8.) joshua templeman from “the hating game” by sally thorne
josh had to be on this list, because he is AWESOME! i mean, you get the idea that he is a complete asshole, because he behaves like that. and you know that i love my bad boys. that’s why i was immediately drawn to josh. but as the book continues you get to see his other sides and oh boy, do i love them. i want that guy in my life please. also, since this is a love story, can someone please give me that love story in real life? heck yeah!
9.) james alexander malcolm mackenzie fraser from “outlander” by diana gabaldon
how could you not love someone with that name? 😀 i love jamie. jamie is like the best guy ever. he is tough and strong and the things he survived are completely crazy. his love for claire is beautiful and you really can see, that when he loves, he loves completely. he would do everything for the people he loves and that’s the thing i love most about him! ❤
10.) tric from “nevernight” by jay kristoff
oh tric. how could i fall in love with you so badly? i knew that he would become on of my favorite characters while reading this book and again, i was right. i love this guy. i love his relationship with mia, i love how strong he is and his skills are also amazing! 🙂
that’s it guys. that’s my list of my top ten male book character crushes. i love all of those guys. and there are many more but let’s not get carried away! 😀 as i said, i will be doing such a list for my crushes on female characters as well. so wait for that! 🙂
what about you? can you understand my love for these characters? is there someone you love too? or do you say: “that girl is crazy!” 😀
