Top 10 of 2013: Book Boyfriends

Ladies and gentleman after much consideration and google image searching of hot guys. I present to you, the much anticipated, Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2013!

You said it, Abby Lee Miller, but these guys made the cut!

1. River West- Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Oh River! I never trusted you but you were still oh so swoony! He has that rich, east coast prepster thing going for him. I just can't resist that as evidenced by Gansey on last years list. At least I know my type rich, dark, and slightly crazy.
Death- Endless Knight by Kresley Cole
I love me a doomed ship and this looks like one of those. Death and Evie have this epic shared history, and he is so lonely. I just want it to work out for him. For my fancast I picked Freddie Stroma best know ,probably, for playing McClaggen in Harry Potter. "I wouldn't mind getting on a first name basis with him, if you know what I mean". 10 Points for Gryffindor if you recognized that quote.
 3 Ink - Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
Despite a borderline cliche entrance I knew I was going to love Ink! He has that distant, not quite brooding, air about him and I just couldn't get enough of it! I need the sequel now.
4 Adrian Ivashkov - The Indigo Spell & The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
I hadn't seen Douglas Booth fan cast as Adrian Ivashkov before, but I can totally see it! He's got that effortless hot thing going on. Also I'm digging the 5 'o clock shadow *swoons*

I also wanted to congratulate Adrian on being the only book boyfriend to make it on the list 2 years in a row! Lets take a moment to celebrate that.

5 Warner - Unravel Me by Tahreh Mafi
All of the Chapter 62 hype was accurate and the man that made it all possible was Warner! There was no way we wouldn't be on this years list!
6 Jackson Tate - Rush by Eve Silver
I was hesitant about reading Rush because it had aliens. I should not have been concerned! It was an all round awesome read. And Jackson Tate made it all the better. He was secretive, a bad boy, brooding... meaning he was exactly my type!
7 Isaiah - Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
I think the guy on the book cover is perfect for Isaiah; but whoever that CW hottie on the right is...yum! He is also a great cast! He's pulling off the shaved head and tattoo's without coming off as scary.
8 Ethan Landry- The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston
Ethan is a Louisiana farm boy. I have learned living in SD that farm boys never look like this guy! But a girl can dream! Out of everyone on my list Ethan was genuinely the best boyfriend out of the lot! Supportive, kind, and willing to do anything to help Meg.
9 Naji - The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke 
Naji is an assassin so the entire time I was reading I pictured him like this. lol. Not exactly swoony but I love the way he treats Ananna! And his character development made him a great male lead.
10 Chris Henderson - That One Summer by CJ Duggan
 I just love the Onslow boys I wish I could scoop them up and put them all on the list. After That One Summer though, Chris is my favorite! As CJ put it male model Adam Cowie is wickedly handsome and beautifully broody. The perfect Chris Henderson!

Honorable Mention
The Darkling - Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Okay, I know I said Adrian was the only book boyfriend to make it on the list two years in a row; but I would be remiss if The Darkling wasn't on here somewhere! Afterall, I did represent him in the Summer Crush Tournament! After Siege and Storm my feels are all muddled but he is still definitely one of my favorites and after the spoiler Leigh gave us (look below) I have high hopes he will make a comeback in Ruin and Rising! Plus, I do love a doomed ship!

A Darkling/Alina snippet from Ruin and Rising courtesy of Leigh for the holidays!
“Why waste my anger on you when the fault is mine? I should have anticipated another betrayal from you, one more mad grasp at some kind of childish ideal. But I seem to be a victim of my own wishes where you are concerned.” His expression hardened. “What have you come here for, Alina?”
I answered him honestly. “I wanted to see you.”
I caught the briefest glimpse of surprise before his face shuttered again. “There are two thrones on that dais. You could see me any time you liked.”


  1. Ok, you definitely like the bad boys. :) Adrian...I agree with you about him, although I didn't like him in VA, but absolutely love him in Bloodlines. Death...really? That ending...gah! Is that really going to happen? What??? And does he really love her or only because she's the only one he can touch? Just a little suspicious about him. Warner...again, I have to say, I'm Team Adam, but I have heard bad things about the new novella and I think I'm on the losing team. Naji...loved him! And also loved Ethan, now he's a good guy. Great list! ~Pam

  2. Adrian would be in my list too :) I don't know the other characters though.

    I also like the Darkling compare with Mal. I guess that's the reason why I haven't read the second book yet.

  3. Okay, apart from LB's first book I have yet to read ANY of these yet even though 90% are on my wishlist. Boy do I need to make some MAJOR changes in 2014!! Awesome list honey. :-)

  4. Oo, like the eye candy! Awesome list!

  5. Endless Knight is on my to-read list for 2014. I've heard such good things about it and it's also been making the rounds of everyone's top 10 lists so I'm sold!


    Let's see... Jackson Tate and Death, YES :D I have Jackson on my list, and I very much like Death (though he is not on my list). RIVER WEST IS ON MY LIST THOUGH AND OMG YESSS YUMMY RIVER! I rather love Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and not just because of River... *ahem*

    Happy holidays!

    Check out my Top Ten post!

  7. Isaiah, Warner and Adrian are my top favorites too! I need to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea :)

  8. Woah, you chose such awesome pictures o.O I can totally see Adrian and Death in those actors! And I thought about including River... but there were also some things about him that didn't go over well with me. But I wanted him anyway. Which was the point of him being written that way. And I also considered Indelible... but it's been a bit long and my memory was murky. I was fascinated by him though!
    I've got the Pirate's Wish but haven't read it yet - I'm very curious to meet Naji now, though! I love assassins.
    I still don't see the Warner thing though. I despised him in Shatter Me, kind of felt sorry for him in Destroy Me (no excuse though) and I still haven't read Unravel Me. Maybe that will explain it for me.
    Great post, in any case :) Thanks for stopping by my Top 2013 cover post a few days ago!

  9. Oh yeah, the pics are hot!! LOVE THEM ALL :) :) And I think I should start the Bardugo serie!!! AWESOME list ;) ;)

  10. Adrian has made my list three years in a row now! I think maybe Jem and Tod have too I can't remember. Love that you included Chris! I think Sean is my favorite Onslow boy but it is such a hard choice! Warner and Isaiah almost made my list. I don't think I read Warner's book technically in 2013 so I just left him off.

  11. I want to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea so bad and now I need it now! I know what I'll be spending my money on with a trip to the bookstore ASAP! OMG the guys for River, Ink, Adrian, and the Darkling are just so fine. I love me some Adrian and Warner as well.XD Great post!
