— Characters you swooned over when you were younger. This was a topic from our suggestion board 🙂
hello lovely bookoholics ❤ how are you all doing today? this topic could be a little hard for me, since i didn’t read that much when i was younger. but let’s see where this journey back into the past will lead us to 😀
1.) pretty much everybody from susan elizabeth phillips’ books
i was in a very big susan elizabeth phillips phase when i was younger. what can i say, i love romance. i am a romantic. so her books were awesome to me. basically every male character stole my heart and i loved them all. but gabriel bonner from “dream a little dream” was always my favorite. if you love romance books, then give her books a try, you won’t regret it. lean back, shut off your brain and just enjoy an awesome romance book! 😀
2.) edward cullen from “twilight” by stephenie meyer
yes, i admit it. i was always team edward. always. i fell in love with him back then and i am not even ashamed of it. because so many other girls did too 😀
3.) mark darcy from “bridget jones’s diary” by helen fielding
oh how i was in love with mark darcy back then! i enjoyed the books and i loved the movies. until today. they are just fun. i laughed. and colin firth is one of my favorite actors so of course i was in love with mark darcy. 😀
4.) legolas from “the lord of the rings” by j.r.r. tolkien
well this one is the only fault of orlando bloom. i had a huge crush on orlando bloom and somehow my mind decided, that he is my favorite character. 😀 today i can say, that sam is definitely my favorite character from “the lord of the rings”. but back then it was all legolas. ❤
5.) augustus waters from “the fault in our stars” by john green
when i first started reading “the fault in our stars” by john green, i immediately fell in love with augustus waters. it wasn’t slowly and then all at once. it was all at once 😀 so you can imagine what happened to me throughout the books. i was a mess. but he was my favorite for a very, very long time.
wow, going back into the past is weird! 😀 it’s so funny to realize how you develop throughout the years. i am not ashamed of my choices. that’s what i felt back then. tell me the characters you had a huge crush on back then! 🙂
