Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

Gah!! This topic was so much fun! I loooooove me some book boyfriends and I looooove The Broke and the Bookish for thinking up this topic! However it was very near impossible only being able to list 10...in fact, it was quite cruel to try and narrow it down but I digress. Love to re-live the swoon of fictional characters because let's be honest...Boys: They're Better in Books <3 

1. Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices--A sarcastic and snarky smart-ass who loves books?! Um, what?! I want one! Love the Will. His one-liners are to swoon for. I binge read the entire Infernal Devices series last week and I am just so catastrophically in love with Will Herondale it borders on insane.  Love love love.

2. Alex Sheathes from Delirum--Words cannot convey my love for Alex. He taught Lena how to love and to be free and to fight and be strong and so much more! If that isn't reason enough I could fangirl for another hour on how much I love him. I know ya'll have mixed feelings with Requiem but after re-reading Delirium and Pandemonium a few months back I just fell in love with his character all over again. 

3. Adam from If I Stay--Seriously?! Seriously. He is perfect. So devoted. So adoring. So in love. I want him in my real life. He plays guitar...and is in a band...and you KNOW he has tattoos somewhere on his person...please hold while I wipe up my drool. 

4. Matthew de Clairmont from A Discovery of Witches--Swoon Alert Ladies and Gents!!! Ugh, a big, strong, sexy vampire who will do WHATEVER it takes to protect Diana. Sign me up, I'll cast some spells. Whatever you want Matthew. Oh and did I mention that he is French? And a warrior? And so cursed with his humanity and emotions he loathes what he is. Oh he is so deliciously emotionally messed up you just want to crawl into his arms and tell him it will be okay.

5. Leon from Birthmarked--Ugggh, Leon breaks my heart I just love him so much!! Breaks it. Smashes it. He is so strong and selfless and is just a man. He, like Matthew, does whatever he needs to in order to protect Gaia and keep her safe and love her. I have never in my life felt such emotional angst and intensity than while reading these books. The intensity, the passion, these books have it all. My heart felt Leon... *sigh*

6. Adam from Shatter Me--This guy is legit. So protective that he would risk life and limb for those he loves. He sacrifices so much for those around him and his scenes with his brother?!?! I die a little each time. I would run away with him any day of the week. 

7. Warner from Unravel Me-- Yep, went there. Sorry not sorry. I swoon hard for Warner. I am not usually into the bad boy...well I have a few other exceptions but Warner is my main rebel without a cause. He is so much more than what meets the surface. He is tortured and damaged and has been hurt for so long. I really feel like he has a deep and lovely soul underneath all that scar tissue. Oh and I want him to Chapter 62 me...all day...every day.

8. Hector from Crown of Embers--Oh my word, is it hot in here? This man...this man is just amazing. Fierce and protective and I fell in love with this book so much more because of him. I liked The Girl of Fire and Thorns but I LOVED Crown of Embers mostly because of Hector and the relationship Elisa builds with him. This book had me turning the pages as fast as I could in order to get as much Hector page time as possible. I want him as my captain of the guard...for reals. 

9. Four from Divergent-- Strong and silent and inherently distrustful of humans...a man after my own heart :) And he can wield a gun as well as numerous other weapons? And fix my computer? Hello man of the 21st century. Sexy. This character is dead sexy. 

10. Dallas O'Kane from Beyond Control--This guy is dark and slightly emotionally damaged...but hot damn is a sexy mother effer. He wears the pants in the relationship. He knows what he wants. He knows how to treat women. For real. Rugged and strong and head of a gang who rules the sector. Sign. Me. Up. For. The. Cuffs. And. Collar.

Honorable Mentions
Cole from Everneath, Christian from Unearthly, Harry from Harry Potter, Chaol from Throne of Glass, Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Prince Dorian from Throne of Glass, Jace from The Mortal Instruments, Josh from The Sea of Tranquility, Alessandro from Arcadia Awakens, Ash from Iron Fey, Wolf from Scarlet, Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars, and Lincoln from Attachments.


  1. I just purchased Divergent tonight, so I'm quite intrigued to discover first-hand why you chose someone from the book for this list!

    1. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

      Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

      In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

      Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

      It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

      ===> If he’s shutting you out, here’s what’s missing... <=====

      And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession...

      He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

      And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

      Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:

      ===> (The most powerful emotion for men) - (Men fall in love with women who do THIS): <=====

  2. This list makes me so happy because I also fangirl over book boyfriends, and I have both Delirium and If I Stay sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read. This has effectively increased my excitement over starting them soon!!!

    I think I love your HMs more than the actual list lol. Cole, Akiva (swoon), Augustus Waters...love them. But I admittedly haven't read many of the books featuring the guys that actually made the list. :p

    My Top Ten Tuesday


  3. Hahaha over the chapter 62 line! I thought about putting Warner on here because I love him but I don't think I would really crush on him if I was in that world? I don't know. I like his sense of style a lot though. I LOVE that Lincoln is in your honourable mentions, I love him!

  4. hahahhaa... love the honorable mentions.... all 13 of them.

    your list.... is amazeballs with the exception of warner, but we already discussed this in our texting conversation that started at 12am on the dot. haha edward for warner. deal. still though--- warner?? at least edward didn't ... okay, i'll stop. a deal is a deal. :P

    I need to get on Girl of Fire and Thorns - I've been told they are my kind of books!

  5. oh so many of my favorite boys! But Will is definitely one of my all time favorites. I've got Clockwork Princess to start but I don't want to say goodbye Will yet so I keep putting it off

    Marissa @ Rae Gun Ramblings

  6. Will and Four are both just SWOON :)

  7. Great list! You have a lot of my faves on your honorable mentions. I have been seeing a lot about Warner. Going to have to read Unravel Me to see how he changed so many people's opinion about him! Here are my picks.

  8. Yes to Alex in Delirium! I love him! I'm staring at Requiem right now, too afraid to see what happens. I'm such a wimp. And I really need to read Divergent. I'm getting so curious about the boys I keep hearing about! Great list!

    Top Ten Book Boyfriends

  13. Like I did a billion times before, I'm going to try to ignore the Warner on your list. Who is that guy? I don't know. He doesn't sound like my cup of tea though ;) But THE REST OF YOUR LIST IS JUST... oh wait. I have to stop swooning and actually type a coherent comment. I love most of them. A lot. And your honorable mentions teehee. (I'll even forgive you for Christian because a) I haven't gotten to know him better since I've only read Unearthly and b) he is hot). And did I mention WILL HERONDALE already made my list this week? Why didn't you guys tell me about him sooner?! (Okay you did.) He is just....

    Most. Coherent. Comment. Ever.


  14. Great list! I have Four, Leon, and Hector on my list as well. I love those three so much.

    I haven't read the other books, but they're on my TBR list so hopefully I will soon understand everyone's love for those boys too.

    Eva @ All Books Considered

  16. I'm so happy to see Adam from If I Stay and Four turning up on so many lists. And apparently I have to read Shatter Me since I've seen that Adam everywhere, too! Great list!

  17. I haven't read a few of these, but the boys sound super duper hot! The ones I have read, though, I 100% agree with you on! Hector... oh my heart goes pitter pat from him! Great list!

  18. Ah I totally agree about Will! He just makes me swoon! I do Like Hector but I preferred Humberto from the first book!

  19. YES!! I finally found another Warner fan! lol ;) Awesome list!

  21. Glad to see you're Team Dorian too! :) Will is on my list too, and I can't believe I forgot about Matthew from the Discovery of Witches series! Great list!

    Here's my list - TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  22. Well, we disagree on about EVERY character hahaha. Like in every book where there's a love triangle, I like the other one. I'm totally team Julian instead of Alex, and I like Adam way more than Warner (though I like Kenji the best). Oh, and Jack from Everneath. At least we know we won't be fighting about book boys! Hah.

  23. I'm now reading The fault in our stars: AUGUSTUS (L)


  24. Oooh, I'm about to start Crown of Embers and now I CAN'T wait!!! I secretly wanted something to happen with Hector in the first book. Will and Ash both made my list, but I thought about Adam from Shatter Me, as well as Chaol from Throne of Glass. Though, I did go with Jack from Everneath. :)
