top 5 wednesday: nostalgic character crushes

top 5 wednesday is a weekly challenge where you can pick your top 5 for the topic of the week. you can find more information about it on goodreads.


this weeks topic is:
Nostalgic Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends
— 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! 🙂

  2. This is such a fab list! I completely agree with Legolas, me and my older sister were absolutely in love with Orlando Bloom when we were younger so we both had massive crushes on Legolas! By now Sam is my favourite character too, and in terms of crushes I am Aragorn (and Faramir…and Eomer 😉 ) all the way but Legolas will always have a special place in my heart! Also, yes for Augustus Waters, I cried so much! 🙂

  4. I still love Twilight! I haven’t read it in ages but I don’t think I’ll ever dislike the story. And I also fell in love with Augustus Waters all at once 😂 I was really in love with Four from the Divergent series. More so in the first book than the other two. I felt like when his real name was revealed his personality kind of changed and broke my heart.
