Top Ten Tuesday: Book Crushes

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It's a freebie week!  Two years ago, I made a list fictional crushes and I've read many more books since then.  I thought I'd give you an update of my fictional crushes.

1. Henry (Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein) - He is someone I would totally crush on in person.  He's incredibly nice and loves his sister more than anything.  He's got glasses and a wicked genuine smile.

2.  Jamie (Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein) - We don't see much of him in the book, but every time we do, he's doing something selfless.  He's going to war, he's taking care of a group of boys, he's helping Maddie.  There is so much to love about his character and his perseverance.

3. Dutchy (Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline) - I fell for him the moment he decided to make a pact with Vivian about finding each other no matter what.  They were young then, but his fierce loyalty and his musical ability put me over the edge.

4. Tommy (Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro) - Despite all his faults and tendencies, Tommy is a sweet boy.  I have a hard time not crushing on him at least a little bit.

5. Day (Legend by Marie Lu) - He tries to be nonchalant, but when he really cares about something/someone he'll do anything to take care of them.  His large heart and badass heir make him irresistible.

6. Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling) - He's still on the list.  I'm rereading the series right now and he's so so adorable in the earlier books.


  1. Neville is incredibly adorable! :-) Love your list this week! My TTT

  2. I just borrowed Code Name Verity from the library and I can't wait to fall in love with it. Neville is adorable, I just want to give him a hug whenever something goes wrong! :) Great list!
