My Bookish Boyfriends

With Valentines day just around the corner, I'd like to draw attention to my many book boyfriends. Yes you heard me, Book Boyfriends. Mine. All mine.

***Disclaimer: Because there are some of you that will take this the wrong way.
      Yes I am fully aware that these men do not exist and that I can't actually have a book boyfriend. 
      This is all in good fun. Something to lighten the mood on "Singles awareness day" aka Valentines 
      Day. In no way am I waiting for these characters to become real and sweep me away. Again
      This is all in fun. Feel free to reply with your own bookish boyfriends. ****

For convenience, I have categorized the men by genre, if you haven't already fallen in love with them the same as I have, you should pick up the book and embrace the inevitable.


Awe Patch, where do I begin with you? Probably with the fact that you are a freaking fallen angel, and I mean that in the most literal sense. If you haven't read Hush Hush yet, I highly recommend it. Patch is fiery, stubborn, protective, and a little broken. I don't know what it is about broken characters, but I just want to hug them and show them that some people in the world care. I love his name to, it was unique but absolutely perfect for my patchy boyfriend. 

Ideal Date: Totally stealing a scene! I'd love to go to an amusement park with Patch.

Will Herondale:
How can you have a book boyfriend list and not include Will? Yes I am aware of the competition for him, but I don't care! Will is the perfect boyfriend, he loves literature, he's funny and quirky, endearing even though he tries not to be. Will is also a bit of a broken character, but I can totally fix that! I mean seriously. I've got you Will, don't worry. Even when he is trying to be a jerk, he is still sweet. Its a loving hate, like a family hate. I love how important his family is to him! He's great boyfriend material for a family.

Ideal Date: A scavanger hunt through different book stores in the city. Yep, I just made up that date but now that I think about it, it sounds really fun!

Jem Carstairs:
Do I even need to explain? Jem is kind, sweet, loving, passionate, compassionate, a gentleman from the very beginning. He's the biggest optimist I have ever know. Through everything, he is positive and upbeat. He loves his friends and would do anything for them, despite their flaws. *cough cough, talking about you Will* Anyway, throughout the whole Infernal Devices Series, I just loved him more and more and I no shame, totally have a crush on Jem.

Ideal Date: I honestly think it would be so much fun to see an opera or a musical with Jem.

As one of the first book boyfriends I ever had, I couldn't not include Fang. Maximum Ride was the series that got me into reading, and Fang....He's dark and broody, protective and stoic. Fang is the definition of Tall, Dark, Mysterious, and Handsome. I love Fang. He handles responsibility so well and is a kick ass fighter. I like to talk, so maybe the quiet Fang is a perfect match for me, I'll always have a listener. Unlike Max, I can damsel really well and Fang is the perfect night in normal clothed armor.

Ideal Date: Skydiving. Obviously I won't have a parachute, I have all my faith in Fang.


Will Cooper:
If you've read Slammed you totally know what I'm talking about when I say Will and I are dating. Out of all my book boyfriends, Will is my favorite. Not going to lie. Will is responsible, romantic, funny, creative, hot, perfect, into literature. There are so many things about Will that I love and adore. Yeah, Lake was kinda his lobster, but I would jump at the chance to be with Will in real life. He is fantastic with kids and he is completely stable, he has no broken pieces like so many other characters. 

Ideal Date: Slam Poetry. Duh. I want a slam about me. Forget your Lake, go for Carissa!

Simon Parker:
I don't know how to describe my relationship with Simon other than steamy and hot. I love Simon Parker so much! He's beyond attractive and.... HE'S A PHOTOGRAPHER, like me! Go read Wallbanger and you'll understand why Simon is my book boyfriend. 

Ideal Date: I think Simon and I would have a lot of fun going some place exotic and taking pictures. 2 Photographers, would could go wrong?!

Ignoring the ending all together, cause I'm conflicted about it, I'm Dating Ben from before the Fourth November 9th. Ben doesn't exist to me after the Fourth one. First through Third Ben, is freaking hilarious! He is goofy and funny while being sweet and cute. Humor in a relationship is a much, and Ben has it all, he crazy hair, the love of literature. First through Third  Ben just makes me smile and a little giddy. My life is better with First through Third  Ben. We broke up after the Third November 9th.

Ideal Date: I feel like going to a museum with Ben would be hilarious. I'm sure he would have all kinds of silly comments.

Though I do love Lola and Cricket together, I love this guy. He is so awkward and adorable that I can't help but love him. His outfits are posh and a little ridiculous, but its endearing. He's beyond creative and I have no doubt he'll be cooking up some great ideas for us to do in the future/use in the future. I also love how supportive Cricket is when it comes to family and friends and helping them achieve their dreams. He's also totally chill. He isn't high strung or too intense, he is very laid back and go with the flow.

Ideal Date: Cricket and I are totally going to go sledding. It's going to be a lot of fun!

The Bad Boys:

This is my favorite book, how can I not mention my Noah? Now Noah doesn't make the greatest decisions, he is a little bit frazzled. He does smoke and drink, which I'm not really into. But the way he cares and loves for family and friends is so endearing. I love that about him. His love burns in a fiery passion and it's a little intense, though he is respectful. He works hard for what he wants and he doesn't give up. I feel determination is an important characteristic in someone. I love Noah, so much.

Ideal Date: I can't chose one. I kinda just want to steal some of my favorite scenes.... Which I won't spoil for you.

Much like Simon Parker, my relationship with Hayden is hard to explain. I LOVE Hayden. He is hot, tattooed, pierced. Which I was never attracted to before Hayden, but now I am all for tatts and piercing. Hayden is a very broken character one that is haunted by his past and it often gets in the way of his real life. Buuttt.... all that aside. I love him. He's obsessed with cupcakes, I love baking cupcakes, I feel like it is a match made in heaven. Plus Hayden is just super super hot and sexy! Love Hayden!

Ideal Date: Hayden isn't a movie date kind of guy. I like it would be really fun to do one of those "Escape the Room" mystery game thing together.

Reed Royal:
I just finished Paper Princess, and am hesitant to add Reed into my bookish boyfriends, especially after the ending. But I have high hopes that Broken Prince, will be promising in making me love Reed even more. Reed is hot, muscular, dark, brooding, a little rude. But he's protective and can be sweet. His opinion is very important to those in the Royal's world. He's kind of a jerk, but I think I like that about him. He is stubborn and extremely broken, but that's okay. We can work through his rubble together.

Ideal Date: Where does one even go on a date with Reed Royal? I think boating would be a fun date if it was just the two of us.

Ridge from Maybe Someday

Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss
