Best of 2012: Best Book Boyfriends

Best Book Boyfriends of 2012

It should come to no surprise that Adrian is at the top of my book boyfriends list of 2012. After all, he did win the YA Sisterhood's Summer Crush Tournament. Adrian has done so much growing as a character since the Vampire Academy series and I can't wait to see what happens between him and Sydney during The Indigo Spell.

It is kind of hard to call Gansey a book boyfriend. He was more of a main character then a love interest but I guess that made me like him even more! I loved how passionate he was about the ley lines and the depth of his character. Plus, he has that whole east coast old money prepster thing going for him (HOT). Whenever I think of Gansey I always have to listen to the song "Tea Partay", this is how I envision all old money guys ^.~

Four will never be Tobias to me. He was always be Four. And while him and Tris did have their ups and downs in Insurgent I still totally swooned over him! He is definitely one of my favorite leading men. Can't wait to find out who is cast to played him in the upcoming Divergent movie.

4. The Unspoken Boys- Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
Yes, all of the boys in Unspoken get to share a spot. I love Jared but we have a sort of love/outrage relationship right now. And I did generally like Ash, but at times he could be a little bit too sweet. *Sigh* But then there is Rusty who isn't even a main love interest be he totally stole my heart (Falling asleep in random places, teaching Kami self defense *adorable*)! I especially like him in the short story The Summer Before I Met You, I'm hoping there is even more of him in book 2.

I know I was supposed to totally swoon over Mal and don't get me wrong the relationship he and Alina had was definitely sweet in a boy next door kind of way but The Darkling stole my heart from the very first page he was in. I have a soft spot for crazy guys that are kind of evil so it is no wonder the Darkling made my book boyfriends of 2012 list!

6 Kaidan Rowe-Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Honestly, I had kind of a love/hate relationship with Kaidan. He was of course a total hottie but at the same time I didn't like the way he treated Anna, and I felt like his back and forth was giving me whiplash. It wasn't until I read the chapters from Kaidan's POV that Wendy Higgins posted on her website that I really came to like Kaidan.

I think the thing I liked most about Noah was his commitment to his younger brothers. His relationship with Echo was adorable but it was really the depth of his character and the love he had for his family that made me like him.

8 Lucas-Easy by Tammara Webber 
Easy is a New Adult novel but I decided to put him on the list anyway. Lucas was the quintessential hot Teachers Assistant and I loved the relationship he had with Jacqueline. Plus Lucas was a total bad boy complete with motorcycle and tattoos, definitely swoon worthy.

I actually just recently read The Scourge for a blog tour and usually I am not a fan of Zombie novels so color me surprised when I absolutely loved The Scourge and totally fell for Peree. He was just such a great love interest and his dedication to Fennel just made him all the more likable   (Just imagine the guy below is blonde)

I went into The Selection fully expecting not to like Maxon but I guess his worldly naivety grew on me because by the end I was rooting for him and was hoping America would just get over Aspen already and give Maxon a chance. 
Honorable Mention:

Morpheus would be at the top of my list this year but Splintered does not release until January 2013 so he is ineligible. Morpheus was the perfect combination of sexy, mysterious, and boy from a next door world. I just loved everything about him! If you haven't already make sure to add Splintered to your TBR list and get your copy on January 1st!


  1. YAY! Adrian is the top of my list too! Of course! Ooohhhh and so is Lucas. I love that pic! I should have used that one but I used a different one! Love Four! I see either Mal or the Darkling a lot too!
