Top Ten Tuesday #102

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends

I don't often feel so strongly about characters, but there are a few that have worked their way into my heart. Often completely irrationally.
  • Professor Lyall from The Parasol Protectorate (series) by Gail Carriger
    I don't think I know anyone who has read the Parasol Protectorate series and left without a fictional crush. To be honest, I almost listed Maccon and Lefoux too.
  • Akkarin from The Black Magician Trilogy (series) by Trudi Canavan
    From brooding handsome evil guy to brooding handsome goodish guy with questionable morals. I don't care, he's irresistible.
  • Minerva from Pirates by Celia Rees
    Can you be infatuated by a fictional character? I swear I have been since I first read her over fifteen years ago.
  • Nina from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
    This book pretty much turned my brain to mush, and Nina is probably partly to blame for that. As is Kaz. And Inej. But someone had to win.
  • Hideo from Warcross by Marie Lu
    I think it's too soon for me to post exactly why, but this man is super charismatic and mysterious. And I forgive him (ish).
  • Hadley from Fashionista (series) by Sarra Manning
    So Hadley would probably be squeaking "Ewww!" if she knew, but she's so freaking adorable. I love her, and her story is my second favourite in the series.
  • Kit from The Double Life of Mistress Kit Kavanagh by Marina Fiorato
    Kit is pretty incredible. Not only is she fiercely loyal, but she is brave and hard-working and can really push herself.
  • Maxwell from DCI Ryan Mysteries (series)by LJ Ross
    Excuse me, have you read any of the DCI Ryan series? *swoon* He's devastatingly handsome and smart and sexy and accomplished and *swoon*
  • Samir from International School (series) by Chanel Cleeton
    Not going to lie, I was reading these books for Samir. He's a player and totally not my type, but just like Maggie, I kept coming back for more.
  • Lucas from Lucas by Kevin Brooks
    A moment of silence please, for what can never be. Heart-broken. Oh, Lucas.

Do you have a fictional crush?


  1. I finally need to read the Magician trilogy by Trudy Canavan! It's been on my list forever. Great list :)
