Book Boy Crushes

Today, I'm talking about CRUSHES! Instead of real-life guys I've crushed on or even movie star crushes, I wanted to talk about fictional crushes!

I've always crushed on guys in books. When I was a kid, I looooved Tom Sawyer. (And it didn't help when Jonathon Taylor Thomas played Tom in the Disney movie version!) Tom was H-O-T because he had awesome adventures like rafting and fishing, played pranks on Aunt Polly and was BFFs with another hot guy--Huck. But Tom crushed on that pesky Becky... Yeah, I wanted her to disappear.

Then, I went through an "I Heart Edward Cullen" phase. OMG. Is there a hotter YA character than Edward? (Silence, Team Jacob.) ;) My Edward love died a little during Breaking Dawn, but when the Twilight movies hits screens, I'm sure it'll come back in full force.

Now, my book boy crush is...Luke from Maggie Stiefvater's Lament. Luke is charming, mysterious, insanely attractive and...magical. *sighs*

So, who's your fictional guy crush? Spill!

I had a book-boy crush on Phineas from A SEPARATE PEACE. Sadly, he died.

Oh Jessica - what a great question!!! My biggest book crushes were on Georgette Heyer's heroes - they still make me go a bit light-headed!!!

Oh, I'm the biggest sucker for literary crushes. And the funny thing is most of them are the most awesome guys you have never heard of. Some of my absolute favorites.

-Percy Blakeney - The Scarlet Pimpernel
-Cyrano de Bergerac - Cyrano de Bergerac
-Marak - The Hollow Kingdom (this one is really funny because he is a goblin king, but I absolutely love him)

Phineas is a great choice, Lauren! I second that. I'm firmly Team Jacob, though, Jess--sorry! (Although I've only read two books.) And my own choice would probably be Owen from Sarah Dessen's JUST LISTEN. Such an understanding guy, and he's into music too.

Oh, and Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre!
