Book Girls Don’t Cry: Meet Our Book Boyfriends!

Posted by

Book Girls Don’t Cry is a feature where we will discuss/vent/advise on a bookish topic. This feature is co-hosted with the lovely Amy at Book Loving Mom.

Sorry, They’re Ours!

Since today is valentine’s day, we decided to go a bit lovey dovey and tell the world who our book boyfriends were, just so, you know, no one else can have em. Muahaha. So we decided to limit ourselves to 5 each so this was HARD and we both have plenty of book boys who would have easily made this list!

  • LEVI from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Levi is the kind of person who is so just… alive! He likes to talk to people and he’s everyone’s friend with a smile on his face at all times. How can you note adore this fella?
  • ISAIAH from Crash Into You by Karie McGarry: Although I love pretty much all the boys in this series, Isaiah is mine! Like I said in my review “He’s got a badass look but the kindest heart and most gentle soul.”
  • SAM HENRY from Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally: This is another series full of awesome book boyfriend candidates, but Sam Henry I just completely love he’s hilarious and any boy that can make me laugh like that has my heart!
  • BARRONS from the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning: There’s a reason I picked the last book cover to show – Barrons starts out arrogant, though fascinating, at first but by the end of this series I was all his! Plus, if you knew some of what he can do…

  • ADAM WILDE from If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman This guy had my heart in this book and then I really fell head over heels for him in the follow-up novel, Where She Went. If anyone reading this post has not yet met Adam you are doing yourself a disservice.
  • COREY LIVINGSTON from What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton I loved how this guy was so caring and understanding and yet he wasn’t afraid to man-up when the situation called for it. There is just something about a man who takes charge that just gets me everytime!

  • BODEEEEEEEEEEE from Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens (this is how I say his name in my head but it actually has a lot less E’s and is just Bodee.)  This guy was the tortured soul and the way that he understood the MC in Faking Normal made me love him so much.  He helped her get through so much while fighting some terrible demons of his own.
  • LUCAS from Easy by Tammara Webber For him I am going to use a quote and that is all you will need to get you hot on this here Valentine’s Day:

      We rolled again and I was under him, his hands tracing and circling, followed by his mouth. Then he unbuttoned my jeans and touched the zipper and everything crashed around me.
     I tore my mouth from his. “Wait.”
     “Stop?” he panted, watching me.
     I bit my lip and nodded.
     “Stop everything, or just go no further?”
     “Just…just no further,” I whispered.
     “Done.” He gathered me into his arms and kissed me, one hand tangled in my hair and the other caressing down my back, our hearts pulsing out a cadence that the musician in me translated into a concert of lust.

    LEVI!!! <3 He gave me the major swoons with his awkwardness in Fangirl. I love book boys like him, who aren't bad boys and are genuinely nice.
    Isaiah too! He has such a hard surface but on the inside he has the gentlest soul as you mentioned. I still have to meet Camden although I've heard fabulous things about him. And yeah, he's a total hottie. 😉
    Great list, Giselle! 🙂

    "If anyone reading this post has not yet met Adam you are doing yourself a disservice."
    *hides from Jenni* Just so you know, I did buy the books a couple of weeks ago and I'm planning on reading them over the summer. 🙂
    YES, YES, YES to Bodeeeeeeeee! I met him last week and he has to be one of my top boyfriends. He's just so sweet and understanding.
    And of course, Lucas! That scene right there is when I fell in love with him.

    Lovely lists, ladies and Happy Valentine's Day!

    Wowwwww I literally have no idea. I love a lot of the guys from your lists above and other male characters in general but either I’m just drawing a blank or I never actually want those guys for me, just for the characters.

    Off the top of my head, Marcus Flutie (Jessica Darling series). I adored him when I was in high school. Jase Garrett from My Life Next Door. I literally had no idea this would be such a hard question for me. Haha You learn things about yourself every day.

    I feel so bad because I actually haven’t read any of these books, even though I’ve heard fabulous things about them. I’m making it a point to try and read Easy, Faking Normal, and Sins & Needles soon because the reviews for those books have been nothing but positive. Out of the ones that I have read (Fangirl and Catching Jordan), I totally love Sam Henry! Thanks for sharing, and Happy Valentine’s Day, girlies! <33

    Definitely agree with Bodee from Faking Normal. He was such a refreshing love interest! If I had to pick a male from YA literature to be my real-life boyfriend, he’d be one of my top choices. As for me though, even though he’s dead, I’d love Fred Weasley </3 </3 </3 He's just the perfect kind of guy for me 🙁 Funny, witty, and uses his strengths to get by in life.

    Happy Valentines!!

    I approve Sam Henry ALL THE WAY, Giselle! And yes, I have Barrons and Levi waiting on my shelf and asdfghjk I CAN’T WAIT!!!! Also, Isaiah? He is bad-a, but his kind heart is what got to me in PtL already and I need to crack the spine of his book asap 🙂 As for Jenni’s books. OH, GOSH! LUCAS. Le sigh. That scene you pit there, idk why, but it always gets to me and that’s what a guy should always do. He is just freaking amazeballs. The conclusion to Adam’s story was beautiful and I wish there was something more from that world. That’s my only regret lol. Can’t wait to meet BODEEEEEEEEEEE 😀 haha.

    OMG I love Sam Henry!!!!!!! I loved Catching Jordan because of him and he is certainly one of my top book boyfriends. I could never forget V from BDB, Alex from Perfect Chemistry, Logan from Mythos Academy, Nathan from Wild Card, Warner from Shatter Me, and so many more. Geez I have a lot of book boyfriends!
