I’m really sorry for not having posted in a long time. My schedule has been insane, and I just haven’t had any spare time.
But I resigned from my job, so now I’ll have more available blogging time! Hooray!
So Wednesday was Valentine’s Day, my least favorite holiday. It’s just so superficial and shallow, and blown up by the media to immense proportions. Besides, it’s fairly useless in my eyes. If you’re single, all it does is depress you, if you’re in a relationship, you shouldn’t need a specific day to tell them you love them! And as for getting asked out on Valentine’s, then your ‘special day’ isn’t special at all! I’ve never liked it, and as I get older, it seems more and more useless.
That being said, another reason Valentine’s is rather lackluster for me is my love of fictional boys. I mean, compared to book characters, every boy I’ve met seems slightly dull. (No offense to my very dear guy friends, you boys are the exception!) So today, I’ve compiled a list of all the boys I’d gladly snatch from their fictional world and keep hidden in a closet somewhere, so you can pull your mind off the over-glorified holiday of chocolate, red, and pink, and place it where it will undoubtedly be more happy.

Series or book: Legend series by Marie Lu
Legend is a new favorite series of mine, and quite a lot of the reason is because of Day. I normally like sassy, sometimes flirty characters, even if I can’t stand boys being flirty outside of a book, and Day fits that description one hundred percent. He’s a wanted convict at the age of fifteen, and just plain amazing. And as the series goes on… *sobs*
Series or book: Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Jest is my favorite character in Heartless. He’s Court Jester for the King of Hearts, and a Rook from the land of Chess. His character is so amazing, and he’s not bad looking, either. Plus, he can turn into a raven, which is pretty cool if I do say so myself.
Series or book: The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
I just finished the first HG book, and I’m already in love with Peeta. And once I knew he was played by Josh Hutcherson, well, that sealed the deal for me. Who can resist the boy with the bread, right?
All The Lunar Chronicles Boys
Series or book: The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
Yes, I may be a bit of a sucker for Marissa Meyer characters. But what can I say? Kai, Thorne, Wolf, and Jacin are so well developed and frankly gorgeous guys that you can’t help but fall for them.
Series or book: Keeper Of The Lost Cities series
This is a given, right? Can’t have a list of book baes without Keefe! At first he comes across as kind of perfect, but as the series goes on he gets so conflicted and emotionally raw and is just amazing. 😍 He’s snarky as all get out, too, and a huge ladies’ man.
Series or book: The Maze Runner series
I’ve only read the first book of this series also, but I absolutely love Newt. And, he’s played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster! I haven’t finished it yet, so if you spoil it…
It will not be good for your health.
Series or book: The Heroes of Olympus series and Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan
And of course, we can’t forget Leo!! As a smol ten-year-old, Leo was one of my first bookish crushes. And once again, he fits the sassy-and-flirty-yet-emotionally-damaged category which I’m so inexplicably drawn to.
Series or book: The Giver by Lowis Lowry
And lastly but definitely not leastly is Jonas! I love The Giver, and Jonas is so sweet! He’s a lot older in the movie, which bugs me a little, but overall, he’s a great character.
And there you have it!
Are there any book boys you would add to my list? Any you would remove? Let me know in the comments!
