Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Crushes

Today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is a freebie and we have decided on Top Fictional Crushes.  I considered making a  list alternating between Joe Fontaine and Augustus Waters since Goosie Mama has jumped on the Fontaine bandwagon. Those eye lashes! But here are some other favorites we don't discuss as frequently at YAF & WS:

1. Numair from the Immortals series by Tamora Pierce. How the twins learned that manly chest hair = great-- Crazy Camper and Grad Student.*
2. Eric Northman from the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris--Crazy Camper and Grad Student.
3. Tod in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent (more GS's love of Tod here!)
4. Graves from the Strange Angels series by Lili St. Crow. From classmate to werewolf to friend to save-your-life-no-questions-asked-friend to love. (Ignoring the end of book 5: angry side-eye from Grad Student to St. Crow).
5. Eldric from Chime by Franny Billingsley. (see here for why you should be swooning over Eldric)--Grad Student. 
6. Kaleb from the Hourglass series by Myra McEntire. YAAAA for those tattoos and (slightly cocky) frat boy style--Grad Student.
7. Four from the Divergent series by Veronica Roth is Goosie Mama's number one pick. When I asked about fictional crushes she said: "Tobias, duh..."
8. Bram from Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel. "big time"crush--Goosie Mama (her review)
9 & 10: George vs Jonathan from Tamora Pierce's Alanna Quartet (the purple eyed Lioness, she had excellent choice in men) while my young self would have loved Jonathan, George won in the end. And I can't lie, one of my best friends from college also read these books and while on a road trip this weekend, we referenced her new relationship to our mutual best friend as a George vs. Jonathan debate, where again, the George character won-- Crazy Camper.
CC:  I bet you wish this was your
phone- Alana Quartet! - GS

Apparently the internet thinks Max Irons should be Eldric. I agree. And Ian Somerhalder does the best drunk-handsome-heart of gold guy on TV. Who cares if he is  too old to be Kaleb?! I am casting him. Its my TTT. 

Crazy Camper says: GS, remember that time you came down to visit and do research and instead we watched every episode of Vampire Diaries we could? and then spent $50 dollars to buy the rest of the season on iTunes? I blame Ian.

*Crazy Camper and I are twins. Have we mentioned this? TRUE FACT. Although Goosie-Mama tried to Talented-Mr.-Ripley CC's spot in the fam over Memorial Day Weekend.


  1. Kaleb is one of my most favorite fictional boys ever! LOVE him!

  2. Tobias is definitely one of my fictional crushes too

    1. See, I'm not the only one - bad names be darned!

  3. Ohhhh, I have to agree completely with both Four and Augustus Waters (even if he wasn't technically on the list!).

    I'd also add the Weasley twins, Adrian from Vampire Academy/Bloodlines Po from Graceling and Adam from If I Stay. I loved all of them so much that it's hard to pick a favorite!

    I did the "Top Ten Books The Broke My Heart A Little". You can see that list here: http://bibliothec.wordpress.com/2012/06/05/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-tuesday-rewind-ten-books-that-broke-my-heart-a-little/

    1. WEASLEY TWINS! Crazy Camper and I could have had a double wedding (if they were real). SIGH.

  4. I love Four!!! And I agree with Sarah about Adam- Love him!! Gotta love us some fictional bfs!

    Here is my Top Ten!

  5. Oh, Tobias... there is room for no one else! LOL Great list. :)

  6. um...i think the only one I know is Four (and I totally concur) and Eric Northman (but from TV), but Ian should be cast in EVERYTHING. and you guys totally had me rolling, even though I did not understand most of the in-jokes. :) ~dixie

  7. I haven't read most of those except for Divergent but I really like the pics of hot guys! Great answers this week :)

    Crystal @ Elegantly Bound Books

  8. Crazy Camper, It was like we were drunk on Ian's handsomeness. Plus side, you paid for it, not me!! Also I truly love that your road trip involved a discussion of George.

  9. I completely agree with Four. I need to read those other books!

  10. We chose this prompt too! I love your four pick! He was a close contender for us... And our favorite Rogue made my sister's honorable mention.

  11. When you have twins, what's one more?! Triplet style :)

  12. I did fictional crushes this week as well! I can't believe I forgot about Tobias when making my list... I love all your choices!
