Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2011

Today is day three of Top Ten Week, hosted by Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic and Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and co-hosted by Rachel from Fiktshun and Jaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books. While trying to come up with list of the most swoon-worthy guys I read about this year, I realized how picky I am about my book boys. This was much harder for me than I thought. Here are my picks:

1. Prince Ash
The Iron Knight, by Julie Kagawa
Yep, Ash is my number one. I read all four books in the Iron Fey series this year and while Ash seems so cold in the first two books, we really get to know him in the last book. I love how selfless he is and so willing to sacrifice everything to be with Megan. 

 2. Four
Divergent, by Veronica Roth
Easy to see why Tris was crushing on her hot trainer. Four is the perfect combination of quiet strength, power and vulnerability.

3. All three Delos boys (Lucas, Hector and Jason)
Starcrossed, by Josephine Angelini
Angelini put not one, but three hot demigods in her debut novel. I’m very happy that she did.

4. Daniel Kalbi
The Lost Saint, by Bree Despain 
At the very heart of this werewolf novel is a prodigal son-like story of redemption. I love Daniel and how hard he works to fight against the monster within and especially how he treats Grace.

5. Leon Grey
Prized, by Caragh O'Brien
Leon is handsome with a dark and brooding personality, which I don’t always like. However, he sacrifices so much for Gaia, I can’t help but love him!

6. Beckett Rush
There You’ll Find Me, by Jenny B. Jones
While his swoon-worthy character is clearly modeled after a Robert Pattison-like actor, Beckett is everything we wish and hope Robert Pattison is like in real life: loving, kind, patient, funny and completely down to earth.

 7. Luca Forelli
Waterfall and Cascade, Lisa T. Bergren
Luca may not have been the main character’s love interest but I loved him nonetheless. He is handsome, funny and determined to win Lia’s heart.

8. Rodolfo Greco
Cascade, by Lisa T. Bergren
Greco starts off as the hot bad boy but there is much more to him than meets the eye.

9. Logan Quinn
Kiss of Frost, by Jennifer Estep
I really like Logan and how protective he is of Gwen. Now I need him to face his past, stop his whorish ways and start a relationship with Gwen. Think you can handle that, hmmm Logan?

 10. Tucker Avery
Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand
I’m not one for cowboys but I will make an exception for Tucker. The romance between him and Clara is so incredibly sweet, it’s what I loved most about the book.

Who were your book boyfriends for 2011?

But what about Ren?

Great picks :)

Coranne, I loved Ren in Nightshade but since I have not read Wolfsbane yet, I didn't include him. I'm 100 percent team Ren!

KM said...

I agree with pretty much your entire list (the ones from books I've read, anyway). I *almost* put Hector on my list but decided Varen was better. haha And I loved that you included Rodolfo! You'll really love TORRENT if you like him :)

Truly Bookish said...

KM, since Varen was #1 on my list last year, can't say I blame you...

Eunice said...

Prince Ash, Four, Delos boys, Becket Rush, Tucker (though I'm team Christian, but still)? Wow! This is an awesome list. Love them all! :DD

Nice picks! Although really, I stopped concentrating when you mentioned "Tucker Avery..."
