I’m so excited that Melissa at i swim for oceans likes discussion posts because sometimes I get chatty and have things to say. What’s up, Melissa?? Let’s Talk. 

This week’s question:
Who are your top literary crushes and why?

Somehow I manage to crush on someone in just about every book I read.
I’m a big girl and I can admit this.
While there are a lot of my book crushes floating around out there,
Here are a few of my favorites:

Prince Ash from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa

If you know anything about me at all, you know I’m hopelessly in love with Prince Ash. I realize hopelessly in love may be a little beyond “literary crush” but I can live with it if you can. He sort of had me at hello, but by the time I got about halfway through book three of the Iron Fey series, he owned my heart…in a fictional faery sort of way.

Sam from Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Sam is a musician. I love music. It basically seems like a match made in Heaven. Except that once again, Sam isn’t real. Sigh sigh sigh. I mean, the guy plays instruments and is basically the city of Heart’s version of a rock star. Yes, please! (Every single time I think of the term “book crush” – Sam is the first to pop into my mind.)

Lucas from Easy by Tammara Webber

Lucas is the guy that looks like a bad boy but isn’t. He’s a nice guy with a tortured past. I love nearly everything about him in this book and had a book crush on him very early on. It only grew in huge ways as I read this book. Where are all of the real-life people like this guy? Hmmm?

Matt from Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park

You guys, I cannot resist the slightly nerdy guy. I cannot. Matt is that guy! He’s so sweet with his nerdy t-shirts and his geeky homework and being all smart all the time. And then some of the stuff that he does that is so WOW. I can’t even.


Who are some of YOUR literary crushes?
Come on, confess!
You know you have one!

  1. I am in total and complete agreement about Sam – the boy's swoonworthy. I'm dying to read Asunder so I can find out more about it!

    I love Four from the Divergent series as well 🙂

    • Everyone loves Sarah Dessen but that one Dessen book that I read during my contemporary month (Just Listen) just tore me up. (Because I thought it was easy-breezy and it had tons of meat to it.) I've had a lot of people tell me This Lullaby is a good one. I'll have to check that one out – I don't think that is one of the ones I own…

  2. Well it seems to me you've got just about everything covered: Irresistible boys, musicians, the bad-boy with a sweet heart, and the slightly nerdy guy. Mix those all together and you have my future husband (who is hopefully real and not fictional!)
