Top Ten Bookish Crushes


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is our Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character, which is a giant mouthful, so I’ve condensed it down to my Top Ten Bookish Crushes. These are all characters who have made me swoon while reading about them, and the list was not difficult to put together at all. I probably could have come up with ten more!

NOTE: Click on the character names to go to the Goodreads page for the book series.

darklingYep, he’s evil and every other bad adjective you can come up with. I can’t help but swoon anyway!

duvalA flawed hero who loves his family more than anything? Yes, please!

jamesI’ve only read the first book, but anyone who can snark like James is worthy of being swooned over.

faramirHe’s strong, capable, and has enough common sense to leave that One Ring alone!

sonnyStrong, stubborn, and a giver of very hot and swoon-worthy kisses!

coleFull of smart aleck comebacks, with a bad boy persona to boot!

percyWay too young for me, but I love his snark, courage and humor, as well as his love for Annabeth.

kaiStrong, intelligent, and just trying to do what’s right for his people. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a sense of humor, and can see past outward appearances!

kaninI have a thing for those strong, silent types. The thirst for blood, not so much, but he can’t help what he is.

willThinking of Will just breaks my heart. But I love his strength and courage, and his ability to do what needs to be done.

So there are my ten bookish crushes! What are yours? Please link me!

  1. I considered Percy for the same reasons you did, but he’s way too young for me. Faramir was a close runner-up for me, but I went for Aragorn. Here’s my list!

    Ah, you’re the second person to have Faramir on their list, and I feel like I forgot him. Will fix before my TTT goes up! I have Kai on my list as well-LOVE him. Poor guy sure does have a heck of a burden on his shoulders though.

  3. oh you put the Darkling!!!! He’s totally attractive and alluring but evil haha and yes I’m a Kai fan too :)

  5. Ooooh… The Darkling. I have to admit I was smitten with him too. He got me fooled. Oh how cruel! LOL. Gotta love Gavriel, Kanin, Cole and Sonny! ^_^

    Great list!

  6. Fun list! I really need to read Shadow and Bone. :) I’m excited to read about this Darkling. :) I almost included Kai, but I just wasn’t sure. I totally agree with you, though. :)
