Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic:
Top Ten Tuesday REWIND — go back and do a topic you missed over the years or recently or a topic you really want to revisit
So, I’ve gone through their handy spreadsheet, and I’ve chosen “Top Ten Characters I Would Crush on if I Were also a Fictional Character.” Because you know me, I’m all about the ships.
Nikolai Lantsov from The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
Suave, charming, handsome, and intelligent, Nikolai is literally my DREAM GUY. Not only that, he’s a freaking prince. I love him so freaking much, and, to be honest, *spoiler* I was kind of irritated when Alina didn’t want anything to do with him romantically.
Does that make me a bad person?
Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians (and Heroes of Olympus) series by Rick Riordan
I love Percy Jackson so freaking much, and he deserves everything in the world because he’s been through so much shit. I just want to give him a huge hug. Also, Percy, no matter what, always preserves his sense of humor, and I love a guy with a good sense of humor.
Khalid al Rashid from The Wrath and the Dawn duology by Renée Ahdieh
Khalid is, despite being ruthless when he has to be, is incredibly kind and thoughtful to the people that he cares about most. Also, he has a soft spot for children, which is so freaking cute.
Scorpius Malfoy from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by John Tiffany, Jack Thorne, and J.K. Rowling
I had a lot of issues with The Cursed Child, but it was still mildly enjoyable. One of the best things about the play was Scorpius. He’s adorable, kind, and loyal to a fault.
Rowan Whitethorn from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
Like honestly, do I even need to tell you why I love Rowan? First of all, he’s incredibly sexy. Also, he’s a fierce fighter and incredibly loyal to those that he loves. Idk man, he’s just really amazing.
Maven Calore from the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard
Okay, so like I know Maven has his problems. He’s fucking terrible. But, somehow, I love him? I really really really liked who Maven was pre-Glass Sword. Also, I have a theory about Maven that, perhaps, he may not be as bad as he seems.
*I promise that I’m not excusing Maven’s shitty ass behavior*
Levi Stewart from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
LEVI IS SO CUTE. Like one of the best parts of Fangirl was Levi. He’s the kind of person I’m attracted to IRL. A little nerdy, tall, and really cute.
Nico di Angelo from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians (and Heroes of Olympus) series by Rick Riordan
I know that Nico wouldn’t fancy me seeing as he’s, well, not attracted to my gender. But I would totally crush on him. He’s really intelligent and enjoys really dark humor, which I love.
Fred Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
He’s funny, witty, and heroic. What’s not to love?
Gat Patil from We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Gat’s love of reading is one of the hottest things to be honest. Whenever he would speak in the novel, he would say such profound and eloquent things. He would just be the kind of guy that I could talk to hours on end.
Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
No list discussing book crushes is complete without the ultimate book boyfriend, Mr. Darcy. He’s extremely intelligent, sweepingly romantic, and incredibly kind.
He’s also hella rich. I’m pretty sure that he’s the first man that made me swoon.
