It’s time again for the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews.
Today’s topic is: Book Boyfriends (or Girlfriends)
Honestly, this is a tough one for me because, there are several times I’ll read a book and fall in love with the hero, but once I’ve moved on he’s gone from my memory. Not many survived that memory loss issue, and it’s likely they only did because they’re in a series so had more time to impress me. Here’s the very limited number I came up with:
Roarke from the In Death series.
Wondering how many lists he’ll make today. I mean, he’s hot, he’s smart, he’s a little bit bad, he’s wealthy and most importantly he’s just a really nice, caring dude. He ticks every one of the boxes!
Taran in The Prydain Chronicles
My first book boyfriend. I was pre-teen when I read this series and was mad about him. I wanted to be Eilonwy in the worst way… this series spawned my first fan fic because I had to write myself into the story 😉
F’lar in The Dragonriders of Pern series
Along the same lines as Roarke, I crushed on F’lar because he was smart, interesting, and above all else, morally strong. He was willing to do whatever it took to do the right thing. He was never really described as stunningly handsome, etc., but that’s largely because these were fantasy novels and not romance novels.
There were a few other book heroes I thought were the cat’s meow, and interestingly, they were all in fantasy series. I honestly can’t remember many romance novel heroes and I wonder what that says about both me, and about the romance genre…. hmmm…..
Who do you have a book crush on?
