As always, this weekly book blog meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s TTT is “Characters Who ________”. Given how broad this topic is, I’m sure there’s going to be all kinds of fun lists out there today. I decided, since I have yet to write a post about this, to go with men that I consider swoon-worthy. I’m not a big fan of the “book boyfriend” title, but there are definitely characters that have made me weak in the knees while reading their books!
Daemon from The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. Oh. My. Goodness. For a long time I was convinced I was going to name a future child of mine Daemon, because I hardcore girl-crushed on him when I first read these books. In fact, I actually didn’t enjoy as much the follow-up books that came after the initial trilogy, mainly because they had less and less of Daemon in them.
Christian Grey from the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James. Oh come on, you know he made you swoon too. And, as a huge fan of the TV show Once Upon A Time, I am ECSTATIC that Jamie Dornan is going to be playing Christian Grey in the up coming movie. Hubba-hubba!
Noah Calhoun from The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. This is probably my all-time favorite love story, both in book and in movie. Who wouldn’t swoon over a guy dedicating his life to the girl he loves?
Four from the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. There’s something about this tortured man who feels so passionately about Tris that just sucks you in. And all the feels at the end of Allegiant? Ahhhh!
Peeta from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Not only is Peeta fighting for his life, but he’s also fighting for Katniss’ life AND her love. The whole time I just wanted to scream at Katniss to FORGET GALE ALREADY.
James Stark from the House of Night series by P.C. Cast. He’s so darn cocky and confident, yet does everything possible to protect Zoey. He’s always there for her, going above and beyond his warrior duties.
Edward/Jacob from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyers. I might get lynched for this, but how could I NOT put them on this list? While reading the books, I was Edward All. The. Way. I just wanted Jacob to leave Bella alone already. And then… I saw the movies. I am totally team Jacob in the movies. It might have something to do with just how darn HOT Taylor Lautner is, but I also saw a different side of Jacob in the movies as compared to how I saw him in the books.
Wrath from The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward, specifically Dark Lover. I’ve only read the very first book of the BDB series, so I’m probably a little bias at the moment. But every scene of him and Beth just made me swoon like crazy. I love that he’s got such a huge weakness in the way of being almost blind, and yet he’s STILL such a strong and confident man.
Morpheus from the Splintered trilogy by A.G. Howard. Oh gosh. The tension between him and Alyssa is great, and ironically I love the way he uses persuasion to get Alyssa to see things his way. I can’t wait for the concluding book, Ensnared, to come out next year.
What characters have made you swoon?
