Top Ten Tuesday #13
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Head on over to their blog for all sorts of goodness!
This week's Top Ten: Freebie! I chose to do Top Ten Fictional Crushes, because, YUM. And because I can talk about my bookish crushes FOREVER. 1. Lord Greco, from the River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren: I know that I've NEVER mentioned Lord Greco. Never. You should know that he is mine, and I will fight for him. Figuratively, of course. 2. Jules, from the Die for Me series by Amy Plum: I adore Jules. He's funny, he's chivalrous, he's a sort of rake (which kind of contradicts the whole chivalry bit, but it works, trust me), and completely awesome. 3. Boromir from Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: I know, he's a bad guy. But he's really NOT a bad guy. I like to think of it now like Ron with the locket Horcrux: Ron is not a bad person, but the Horcrux brought out a side of him that he was usually able to keep buried deeply. Same with Boromir. I think of him as a flawed hero. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. 4. Matthew de Claremont from A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness: Oh hello heavenly man and mercy me. This is what vampires SHOULD be like. He is one absolutely stunning, amazing, delicious, fabulous man/vampire. Mmm mmm mmm... 5. Eomer, also from LOTR: I may have a serious thing for the men in this series. 6. Lucius from Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey: Luscious is so endearingly archaic and I love it. He's ready and willing to fight for his lady's honor. I can't think of a guy (outside my family) who would do that for me. Maybe I'm surrounded by douchebags or something. Just proof that I need Lucius in my life. 7. Kishan from the Tiger series by Colleen Houck: I adore Kishan. I adore him more than Ren, whom I didn't like that much at all. Kishan is everything I ever hoped for in a guy: caring, kind, willing to do what's right for the relationship, incredibly attractive, willing to fight for me, and the list goes on and on. 8. Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: He's so nerdy in such an adorable way. I thought he'd be completely perfect as a boyfriend. 9. Prince Caspian from Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis: I like royalty. They almost seem better at being gentlemen. Maybe because they're raised that way, I dunno. But PC was a sweet gentleman and I loved him. 10. Kyp Durron from the Jedi Academy series by Kevin J. Anderson: Kyp has always been my book boyfriend...he's the bad boy that I love and adore. Mm, mm, mmm. I like everything about him. (I'm adding one more because I just finished a book and this guy NEEDS to be on every single crush list EVER. Except don't forget that I get him in the end, okay?) 11. Captain Nicoli Marek from Degrees of Wrong by Anna Scarlett: I realize that I'm being a tease by adding him, because the book isn't out yet. But trust me when I say that Nicoli is probably the most delicious of the offerings out there. Yu-um! Also, he's mine. :D Ya know, I really think that fictional characters make better boyfriends than real people, at least in my experience. I'll take one of them over my real choices any day.
