My Top Literary Crushes

I love my husband dearly but...as a follow up to Tuesday's post, I'd thought I'd share my literary crushes. Here goes: (This is in backwards order.)
10. Tamine from WINGS. There isn't much I can say about him---yet. I'm taking a big leap of faith on this one. There's just something about him and I have a feeling in Aprilynne's books to come, he's going to start topping many lists.
9. Daniel from THE DARK DIVINE. He's got the whole childhood crush/bad boy thing going on. Very appealing.
8. Patch from HUSH, HUSH. He's dark, mysterious, and another hot bad-boy. That moment in the kitchen with him was h-o-t.
7. Po from GRACELING.
6. Cabel from WAKE.
5. Alex Fuentes from PERFECT CHEMISTRY. The ultimate handsome, cocky, bad boy type. A modern day Danny Zuko. He'd give up anything for Brittany in the end--and does.
4. Peeta from HUNGER GAMES. Loyal, sweetheart, and I love how he has always loved Katnis. He does everything with her mind. Gale can't even compare.
3. Eric Northman from Sookie Stackhouse Books. This handsome Viking isn't even Young Adult. But he had to be included! Tough, handsome, and the perfect match for Sookie.
2. Edward from TWILIGHT. What can I say? I am a twilight fan (as you know). I am team Edward. He is the ultimate mix of bad boy/vampire/protector.
1. Jace from MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Series. If you don't know who Jace is...you're missing out. Everything single moment I spent reading about him and Clare in the City of Bones books was like book-crack. I couldn't get enough. He's hot headed and arrogant with this dark past. But underneath he's kind and loves Clare. Every time they share a kiss, my heart beats faster. The rest of the story was alright--kinda long but Jace make it very worthwhile.
That's my list. Who are your favorites?

You have all of mine on there! I think Jace is my favorite, and Edward, and Daniel. . .


But you forgot Nick from Need!!

Summer said...

I love Eric! I really liked Jace too, except that somewhere in the beginning of the first book, he's described as "small," so it got stuck in my head that he looked like a little kid. It drove me nuts, but I couldn't get that mental image out, even during those uber-hot scenes with Clary.

Sarah said...

Crystal--Yeah Nick would probably make number

Summer--I don't remember that little detail. Perhaps its a good thing I missed it.

Jace...*drools* While reading the series I always pictured Garrett Hedlund as him.

Sarah said...

Great list - I have a lot of these books on my TBR pile so can't say if they'll all make my top 10 or not but Patch, Alex, Eric & Edward would all be in there somewhere :o) I'll have to give it some thought & make my list

Alex (Tales of a Teenage Book Lover) said...

Great list!

Kristin Rae said...

Sigh... I'm team Gale.. and Jacob..

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I'm with you on Patch, Cabel, Alex (big time sigh), Edward, and Jace. I have a soft spot for Gale. Other than Wings, I haven't read the others yet.

Great post! Very thought provoking. Or at least dream provoking. :)

Go Jace! Boy, I love him. ( :

My top literary crush is Mr. Knightly from Emma. You need to see the new version of that movie. He truly is "a superior man".

Years of non-fiction reading has really damaged my literary stud-o-meter. Most of the ones I'd think of hail from classic tales. It's really amusing how some of the characters in your top ten sound like men I've dated. I wonder if I made it up that loss on the other end. :)

Book Crazy Jenn said...

OMG there's soo many great one's Matthew from Seers of Light right now would be my TOP of the TOP - but then there's Daniel from Fallen LOVE him and of course your top guy Jace is totally adorable too...oh and Weston from The Pace has to be on my list - LOL TOO many awesome guys - I love your list some of these books I have not read yet, must make it to them soon!

Palindrome said...

I wasn't a big Eric fan until the shows and then I was like, Bill who? But I do love the way Bill says Sookie, he makes me not mind the Southern accent so much.

My top literary crush is Jaime Fraser from the Outlander series...the...PERFECT...MAN!

Stevie said...

*questions your judgement for a moment*

Jace and Peeta I can see. I love Jace as well and, though I'm more on Team Gale, Peeta is cute as well.

But Edward? Seriously?

(For the record I'm not on Team Jacob)

Sarah said...

Stevie--haha. I am team Edward. What can I say?

Maria the Bookworm said...

You have almost all my favourites in there. However, Eric Northman I know nothing about since I haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse Series yet. Anyway, Valek from the Study Series by Maria V. Snyder should be on the list as well :D

Swimmer said...

Sarah said...
