Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2011

Organised by A Life Bound By Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Fiktshun and Two Chicks on Books, Top 10 of 2011 is an event to connect bloggers from all over to share their Top 10 lists. Make sure to visit one of their sign up posts.

The assignment for today is to list your top 10 book boyfriends of this year. I will have to resort to listing the awesome guys that I’ve read about this year, and not those who are published this year. I just haven’t read enough 2011 published books to compile a list of those.

1. Jack from Everneath by Brodi Ashton: He will not only knock your socks off, but he also is a really nice guy. I won’t spoil anything for you, but the things he does for his loved ones… You can’t help but love him.

2. Peeta from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: I’ve been team Peeta since day one. I hated Katniss when she just couldn’t see that Peeta was the right one for her. If she doesn’t want him, I’ll take him!

3. Barrons from Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning: I’m not sure if I want Barrons to be my boyfriend… Some creepy unseelie fae may turn up at your doorstep at inconvenient times. But at least he is hot.

4. Zsadist from Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward: He is the ultimate tortured hero. Well, maybe because he was literally tortured, but that aside. Emotionally damaged as he is, he still has a soft side. And when it shows, it will make your knees turn into jelly.

5. Lord Maccon from Soulless by Gail Carriger: Unmannered as he may be, he is still one awesome werewolf. Pack alpha by night and investigator by day, he is definitely one interesting wolf.

6. Nathaniel from The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell: A mysterious artist with magical powers. What more can you wish for in a bookish boyfriend?

7. Colt from Invasion by Jon S. Lewis: Loyal to his friends and intelligent. And he can kick alien butt. And he goes to a secret school where Bigfoot is a teacher. He deserves to be on the list.

8. Fitz from Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb: Sort of an anti-hero, poor Fitz has to go through the hardest of hardship. Everything goes wrong in his life. I just want to hug him for a looooong time.

9. Sherlock Holmes from The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz: Aww, can I just have him? Pretty please? He can tell what I’ve done in the past days, what I’m thinking about and what I’m going to do next by just looking at me. How cool is that.

10. Finn from Incarceron by Catherine Fisher: Brave but not heroic, I wouldn’t mind saving Finn from a prison at all.
