Top Ten Characters I Would Crush on if I Were a Fictional Character
I'm not quite sure why I have to be fictional character to crush on these guys since I crush on them anyway but I'll play along. Here are my top ten favorite boys I've encountered in literature so far in no particular order!

1) Four from Divergent series by Veronica Roth- Ever since I met the strong and silent Tobias, I couldn't help but fall madly in love. Though there is a lot to love about him, I really fell when he treated Tris like an equal. In the world he lives in that values strength, she could have easily be passed over because of her size but he saw the strength in her and for me, that's pretty much magic.

2) Noah Shaw from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin- Holy cow! I didn't stand a chance with Noah. I was as unprepared as Mara was. I'd actually read about Shaw's character before hand and was completely prepared to hate his guts because he is so not my type. He smokes and is full of himself and yuck. But then we got to know him with Mara and he was so charming and sincere underneath all of his rebellion. Now he's just my British, crazy-reckless, caring and kind book boyfriend and I don't ever want to be without him.

3) Edward Cullen from Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer- I know what you're thinking but block out all the hype and everything you've heard and think back to the moment when you read the first book. When there was nothing but you and Bella and Edward in that sullen, rainy town of Forks. I'm talking about that Edward. The one that was personal to you before all of the hype. I'm woman enough to admit that I fell in love reading those books and that that is the experience I hold on to.

4) Finnick from The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins-I really loved Peeta too but I wanted to just pick one and my favorite is Finnick. I think it's because he was never a potential match for Katniss but rather her friend. His story is so sweet and sad and I love that there is more to Finnick than first meets the eye.

5) Adam from Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi- There is something about how gruff Adam was in the beginning mixed with how sweet he ended up being that made him impossible to ignore. I love his soldier exterior and how devoted he was to Juliette and his little brother.

6) Perry from Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi- Perry holds the same allure for me as Four. He's quiet which means he observes the world on a deeper level than most people. Plus, half the chapters in his perspective really helped to soften his character.

7) Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood series by Kendare Blake- Yeah, I describe Cas as a mix of Sam and Dean from Supernatural. Of course he's going to be on my list. I love that not only did Cas seem like a real boy but I loved his tough as nails exterior. Though he didn't want to make friends, once he had them he would do anything to keep them safe.

8) Jay from The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting- Jay started out as the best friend. I love storied where best friend fall in love (believable) and to me, this is the best example of that kind of story. Jay was kind and popular and he loved Violet which is adorable. Plus I love that even though Violet can do something that is a little off and he is normal, he still completely accepts her.

9) Ren from Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer- Can we say yummy? Ren is hot in a way that very few characters can be plus he is able to overcome a lot of his negatives. I think in a lot of stories, it is easy to pass off the main character's intended because she didn't pick him. That's what Ren is. Yet he is also interesting and challenges her and is sexy and sweet. Love him!

10) Mr. Darcy from Price and Prejudice by Jane Austen- Of course he is going to make my list. Darcy is the original hottie in my opinion and his and Elizabeth's relationship defines heat. I absolutely love Darcy because he is kind without expecting thanks and socially awkward.

Which boys made your list?


  1. I've really been loving this week's TTT - such a fun topic! And I love Finnick too. But you know, I'm a total Warner girl with Tahereh's books. You really need to read "Destroy Me" and UNRAVEL ME!!

  2. FINNICK, yes. And Four too. Although I don't love who got cast as Four in the movie, but maybe they'll change him up enough for me to end up liking him. Great list, Amber!

  3. Gah I forgot all about Jay! And I love Noah Shaw too! Great list!

    My TTT

  4. I love Jay and Noah as well but I'm on some different teams then you in other series. I really must say I love Warner so much more from the Shatter Me series. In Unravel Me he impressed me so much more than Adam and I could never go back to Adam now that I've fallen for Warner. I also was always a Shay girl instead of a Ren girl. I felt like Ren was the guy she would have been forced to love whereas Shay was the guy she got to pick out for herself. If I had the choice, every day of the week I would pick the guy that I personally picked instead of the guy someone else was urging me to marry.

    Great list though! I have to say I agree with the Edward thing, when I first read the series he impressed me too. With my re-read of the series last year I fell for Jake more though. :)

  5. Yum, yum, YUM for all of these guys! I've read all of them, and I have to admit they're pretty swoon-worthy! Some of these guys didn't make the cut in my top ten list, but they were definitely all in the running!

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday post! Happy reading!

  6. so many good ones! Four! Perry! YES! And Edward will ALWAYS have my heart!

  7. I also LOVE Ren, Four and Mr. Darcy (he´s mine).
