Top 10 Book Boyfriends in 2011

top ten week of 2011
 
It’s the third official day of the Top 10 of 2011 week and we’re moving on from book covers to fictional lovers (who we wish were real). 

[For more information about this event, please check out my post with all the details here.] 

Now while I don’t strictly read romance novels, I do love me a good love story! Many of the books that I’ve read (and loved) this year have featured at least one swoon-worthy man. Some of these characters are thugs, some secret softies, but at their cores, they are all basically good guys. And now, to get to the good stuff….

My Top 10 Book Boyfriends in 2011 are (in no particular order):

√ Akiva Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (my review)

A stone-heartened angel with eyes like fire, this steamy guy gets my blood pumping! Dangerous, mysterious, eternally complex, and not to mention, gorgeous, I would certainly do a double-take if I passed Akiva on the street

 √ Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth (my review)

I love Four because he’s strong in all the right ways, but also soft when he needs to be. I know there is competition out there for this hunk of a man, but I’m willing to jump off of moving trains and box in the ring for this stand-up man! 

√ Win from All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin

This son of the new assistant D.A. is perfect for me because of his patience and foresight. I like his charming wit and his devotion to Anya. I know that some people didn’t “buy” Win or his character, but he can call me anytime. I’ll be waiting....

√ Adam from Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Although he’s hopelessly devoted to Mia, punk-rocker Adam does it for me every time. From his yearning for her to live (from book one) to his determination to find her (in book two) make this guy an admirable, and worthy, book boyfriend. 

√ Alex from Delirium by Lauren Oliver (my review)

I love me a rebel and Alex certainly fits that bill. He’s sturdy enough to make me feel safe, but also mysterious enough to keep me intrigued. Also, in my heart of hearts, I believe that he’s alive and waiting for me, I mean Lena. 

√ Truman from The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff

Yes, it’s true. Like Daphne, I’m drawn to the run-down and battered boys who are crying out for help. This blue-eyed boy puts on a tough façade, but he’s really a sweetheart who’s just dying for a good hug. 

√ Eric from Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

Ever the bad boy, this Viking vampire can suck my blood any day. Although he misbehaves in this book, I cannot resist loving this man! Not to mention that one look at Alexander Skarsgård makes my knees go weak!

√ Ky from Crossed by Allie Condie

How could I not love a boy who’s incredibly astute and memorizes poetry? This sensitive and intriguing boy would keep both my heart and my soul warm at night. Now if I could only find him….

√ Vincent from Die for Me by Amy Plum

Hot French guy who doesn’t die. ‘Nuff said, right?

√ Sebastian from Tighter by Adele Griffin

Sure, he looks like a typical movie star, with dazzling white teeth and a smile that melts steel, but there’s more to this local boy than meets the eye. Sensitive,  charming, and a tab bit debonair, Sebastian is one classy guy and a great potential book boyfriend.

  1. I totally agree with your assessment of Four. I thought he was PERF. And it’s soooo nice to see Sebastian getting the love he deserves. So few people know about him!

  2. Love your list. I am struggling with mine right now trying to get it written..Im such a fickle girl, that narrowing it down to 10 is so hard LOL…

    I’ve only read divergent but I have several others on my TBR pile. This year I loved Four as well, I read quite a few male perspective books, but I wouldn’t really pick them as boyfriends. I guess I’m going to settle with St. Claire from Anna and the French Kiss and Michael from Become. Such good boys.

    I agree with you about Four and Adam (though I haven’t read Where She Went yet). The other books–I need to read! Thanks for the goodreads friendship. Great blog you have!

    I see DoSaB is a favorite of yours? *high5* Laini Taylor’s writing is beautiful! I love Four too, for guy from a YA book, he sure is a man<3 & like you said, he can be sweet when he wants but not to sweet. I love Adam too! He's not perfect and he's not perfectly imperfect either… he's human. A real guy & I love him!
