Top Ten Tuesday: Book Boyfriends


So it’s Top Ten Tuesday again! Yay! This week’s theme as laid out by The Broke and the Bookish is:

Top Ten Characters Who X (you fill in the blank — examples: piss me off, are the popular kids, are bookish, would be my bff, that stole my heart, etc. etc.)

I decided to choose top ten characters who were totally my book boyfriend.

I’d just like to say before I start this list that I am probably seriously screwed up if these are the characters I’d choose to be my boyfriend. But you know what? This is a judgment free zone. So no judging, okay? J I’d also just like to say I’m not really a Mr. Darcy type of girl.

1. Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower (he’s messed up, too, so we’d be one really messed up couple)


Logan Lerman is my perfect Charlie.

2. Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars (I think everyone will agree on this one)

3. John Rebus from the Inspector Rebus series by Ian Rankin (I’m so screwed up)

4. Fred or George Weasley (I mean, constant laughs)

Just adorable!

Just adorable!

5. Will from Divergent (he’s witty and sweet and brave)

6. Don Tillman from The Rosie Project (imagine dating Sheldon Cooper. I have problems)

7. Finnick from The Hunger Games series (He is gorgeous, strong, sweet. What else do you want?)

I mean, HELLO!

I mean, HELLO!

8. Sherlock Holmes (Of course I’d be interested in someone who’d have absolutely none in me)

9. Wes from The Truth About Forever (No words, guys)

I couldn’t think of a full list, so I asked one of my friends, Noelle Avenmarg, for her book boyfriend. She said:

10. Calvin O’Keefe from the Wrinkle in Time series. (Probably my first book crush).


Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things I’d like to Own

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers post a list of ten books under a theme laid out on The Broke and the Bookish blog. You can find the list HERE.


This week’s theme was the top ten bookish things that you’d like to own. Here are my ten items:


1. This edition of Fahrenheit 451 is freaking awesome. It’s not actually for sale, but you can check out more about it in this Buzzfeed article


  1. Nerd Bookends. I mean, enough said. Love these. Available on Etsy by Knob Creek Metal Arts


  1. The entire text of Peter Pan on a really cool poster? Yes, please! Available from Spineless Classics


  1. Book Junkie pillow. Available on Etsy by Life Crafts Whatever


  1. Books, Doctor Who, and coffee? Pretty much all you need in life. Available on Etsy by The Muggly Duckling


  1. A candle that smells like old books. I want to buy this just to see if actually works. Who wouldn’t want their house to smell like that?. Available on Etsy by Frostbeard


  1. This is one of my favorite lines in literature EVER. Available on Etsy by beanforest


  1. Ampersands are my favorite piece of punctuation. To me, they represent, among other things, my love of language and words. Available on Etsy by Cupcakes and Mace (they are currently on vacation)


  1. Another bookish tattoo. I currently have four: a Peter Pan one, an Alice in Wonderland one, a Harry Potter one, and a Hunger Games one. See picture. I want another one. It’ll probably be inspired by The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or The Great Gatsby, or The Humans. I don’t know. I have a lot of ideas. The picture above is my Peter Pan tattoo: I drew it, and it represents the directions to Neverland (second star to the right).


10. An indoor hammock. I’m allergic to pretty much everything outside, so an outdoor hammock is probably out of the question. This one looks amazing. Picture found HERE.
