Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
I can’t tell you how excited I was when I saw what the topic was for this week. I just knew it was going to be so much fun to create a list of all of the fictional characters I have had crushes on, and also to see who makes some other peoples lists. Although, one thing I didn’t realise until I started writing this post was that I suck at explaining why I like these characters so much, so I apologise for the slightly repetitive and not great explanations!
Some of my favourite characters are on this list, so I’m really excited to share them all!
Gansey was definitely the first person who came to mind when I saw this topic, which may or may not have been a little bit influenced by the fact that I was reading The Raven King whilst first drafting this post. But nonetheless, Gansey is still very deserving of a spot on this list, as he is just so caring for all of his friends, and just generally one of my all time favourite characters.
Another one inspired by a recent read of mine, although I was not a hugest fan of Levi at the start of the book, by the end I was so in love with his character. I love how he never tries to push Cath and accepts her so completely for who she is, but also how he isn’t perfect, and he makes mistakes, but is then able to recognise, apologise and learn from them.
I did not go into this book expecting to come out of it with a new fictional crush, but then Tony came along and that all changed. He was just always so supportive of Eilis, and was always so optimistic and such a caring person that I just adored so much.
Okay, so I think I might have a thing for the boys Maggie Stiefvater writes?
I just couldn’t help falling in love with Sean’s character whilst reading this book, and found him to be such an interesting character who was a very quiet but caring person. He was just such a good, complex character who I adored reading about.
As someone who definitely preferred Peter in the first book of this series, when we got introduced to this amazing character in PS I Still Love You, I couldn’t help but root for him instead. He was just so cute and funny, and I just adored every scene which he cropped up in.
Quite an old one here, but one that I still adore so much, and is definitely still one of my fictional crushes. I just remember him being so sweet and caring, and adoring the relationship between him and Lola, and so just had to put him on this list.
One of my new favourite characters from one of my new favourite books, honestly I just loved how complex his character and how such a hard exterior masked someone who really cared and loved those closest to him.
Finally, I have only currently read the first two books in this series, but I am already so in love with Chaol’s character. I just adored this quiet, quite secretive character who was so kind and caring to those he cares about.
Who are some of your favourite bookish boyfriends or girlfriends?
