Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about my book boyfriends. I decided to do the Book Boyfriend Tag because if I just talked about my book boyfriends in general, we’d probably be here all day, to be honest. But, who cares? Let’s talk about the cute boys!
Most Romantic Boyfriend

Darrow. I mean, would I necessarily call him romantic? Probably not. But, he’s a total romantic in my mind, so it counts. Plus, he’ll probably give amazing pep talks and speeches when I need encouragement and/or I’m low on self-esteem. Have you read the Red Rising series? #inspirationgoals
Dark and Moody Bad Boy with a Good Side

Warner. A.K.A. The only good thing to come from the Shatter Me trilogy. Of course, pretty much everyone was wary of Warner when he first popped up in Shatter Me, but the more you get to learn about his character, the more you just fall in love with him. He’s probably one of the few bad boys in fiction that I don’t roll my eyes at.

Percy Jackson. You’re probably thinking, “How is Percy paranormal?” He’s a demigod. That’s totally not human, so, again, counting it. I mean, do I really need to explain why Percy Jackson is the best book boyfriend ever? He’s funny and kind and look at how he treats Annabeth! Give me sweethearts over bad boys any day.
Boyfriend You Want to Tame

Kaz Brekker, of course. I mean, I’m not going to try to stop him from going on heists and being a criminal because that’s what makes him awesome, but, you know, he could take me on a date once in a while. Just saying.
Boy You Friend-Zoned

Noah Shaw. I don’t have time for wimpy bad boys who sleep with every girl in the high school, and then spout Edward Cullen-like sentences because “I’m not like other girls.” Barf.
Your Soul Mate

Rowan Whitethorn. He’s my top book boyfriend of all time, and even though I love him with Aelin and they’re the most perfect couple ever, he’s meant for me and me only. Sorry, Aelin.
Boyfriend You Want to Elope With

Jem! I know so many people prefer Will over Jem, but, unpopular opinion: I don’t like Will that much. Again, I always go for the sweethearts, and the violin is actually one of my favorite instruments to hear (I blame Lindsey Stirling). And look at the way he treats Tessa. He’s so perfect.
Boyfriend You’d Venture Anywhere With

Rhysand. Look at what happened when Feyre went with him instead of marrying Tamlin. She got to visit the freaking Night Court. To the Night Court I go!
Boyfriend You’d Want to Be Stranded on a Desert Island With

Thorne. He’s absolutely hilarious, plus, he and Cress already survived the Sahara, and that was when he was rendered blind. He’ll find us a way out (and, hopefully, he’ll realize I’m the one for him, not Cress, and he’ll fall in love with me and we’ll get married).
Most Badass Boyfriend

Nik. Um, who wouldn’t want a drug-dealing criminal to go around kicking everyone’s ass?Okay, he’s actually more of a sweetheart, and he was traumatized after he had to shoot a living human being, but, you know, I’d still totally want him on my side to protect me.
And that’s just a sneak peek of some of my book boyfriends! Too bad they don’t really exist and boys in real life always seem to just disappoint.
Also, I feel like I’m on a blogging and reading high right now! I’ve finally gotten back into reading, I’m back to writing reviews again (and I hate writing reviews, so this is a miracle), and I’m on break, so that means I can finish my posts for April (yes, I’m that far ahead)! #killingit
What are some of your book boyfriends? Do we share the same ones (if we do, I called dibs first)?
