Giving Thanks…to those Book Boyfriends Who Make Us Swoon

thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends/followers! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family eating lots of turkey (or whatever). Be thankful for everything in your life ❀

I am thankful for you. For sticking with me since day one. πŸ™‚

  Now today and I am going to give thanks to those wonderful book boyfriends who make me swoon ❀

10 Benton James Kessler

November 9 is still one of my favorites and when I think of an amazing book boyfriend, I think of Ben too. He was so sweet and who doesn’t love a guy aspiring to be a novelist? Plus, he’s such an adorable dork.

9. Sevro au Barca

sevroRed Rising | This guy isΒ hilarious! Not only is he the best best friend, but he would be the greatest boyfriend and that’s why I choose him as one of mine πŸ˜‰ Seriously, I dare you to read the Red Rising trilogy and dare you not to laugh at this goofball.

8. Julian Blackthorn

julianThe Dark Artifices | Jules, ah Jules. He has so much on his plate and just needs some good loving. Of course it would be ideal if it were from Emma, but I wouldn’t mind volunteering for the job πŸ˜‰

 

 

 

 

 

7. Magiano

The Young Elites | Now I was definitely in love with Enzo from the beginning, but once Magiano stepped into our lives I was done for. He is swift, funny, a thief, luxurious, and just downright swoon-worthy. I shipped him and Adelina so hard!

6. Niklas Malikov

Illuminae Files | This is a new addition since I readΒ Gemina. Oh jeez, Nik made me swoon. I love his flirting and his loyalty. Can I have him please?

I am in desperate need of some fanart of this beautiful guy!

5. Khalid Ibn al-rashid

The Wrath and the Dawn | Again, where is the fanart?! I want to see this beautiful soul in picture form! But agh, I continue to want ot reread this book just so I can get another dose of Khalid. He is so broken. He has some great development. Trust me. You’ll swoon too I promise.

4. Dorian Havilliard

dorianhThrone of Glass | How many of you are surprised by this? I am pretty sure you can predict which ones are going to come up next too. But anyway! Dorian is a precious cupcake. Protect him at all costs!!!

He has some great character development too. I love watching him get a grip on his powers and really come into his own. The only thing I am not too fond of is his ridiculous pairing with Manon. I hate this and he deserves more. Not just some random pairing that came out of left field. Blah.

Oh well. I will still swoon ❀

3. William Herondale

willhThe Infernal Devices | Hello William ❀ Oh man oh man. We all swoon over Will, don’t we?

I definitely can’t help but love this beautiful tortured soul.

Plus, black hair, blue eyes? My weakness.

 

 

 

 

2. James Alexander Malcolm Fraser

I am just going to leave this here….

10 Books I Am Most Thankful For This Year

top10tues

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday is Thanksgiving related and a freebie. So I thought it was a perfect time to showcase some of the my most loved books that I am thankful for this year. I am keeping it within books that i read this year. Because if I use all books, I am going to become repetitive and I am sure most of you can predict what books I’d use!

TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Please check out their page for future topics.

morehappyΒ Β IEWUΒ morningstar

Okay first up are 3 books that had me sobbing.Β More Happy than Not is such an emotional, dark book. I didn’t expect to be punched in the gut with this book, but it was fabulous. Adam Silvera is the author to look out for. His storytelling was captivating. As forΒ It Ends with Us,Β oh my god guys heart ripped out and shredded to pieces. This book was too much agony. I couldn’t stop crying and I couldn’t get it out of my mind for at least two weeks. Morning Star was a great finale. Sobbing because it was over and beautifully written. Praise Pierce Brown ❀

thissavagesongΒ Β A Darker Shade final for IreneΒ Β hp7-hallows-duddle

Yes, the lovely Victoria Scwab gets featured twice because that’s how much I love her writing and her word building. ADSOM was my first read and I can’t wait to read more because she has some of the most wonderful characters! They are all my babies! Protect them at all costs! Yes, I can also include Harry Potter because I finally read it after all this time. It definitely lives up to the hype.

Gilmore Girls

gilmore-girls-reunion-netflix

Gilmore Girls has been one of my favorite shows since it started airing way back when. I feel like I grew with Rory and Lorelai. I don’t even know how many times I have watched this whole show. At least 6 or 7 times. I literally cannot wait until Netflix releases the new episodes. I think I cried a few times when I see new set photos! I AM SO EXCITED!

oUTLANDER

outlanders1

I mean…obviously. You guys already know my obsession with Outlander ❀

Arrow

I love all the DC shows on the CW, but Arrow especially. Arrow and Oliver Queen are bae ❀

I wasn’t a fan of the last season too much, but I can’t wait for new episodes.

The Flash

Oh Barry Allen ❀ this show is so addiciting, right? If you aren’t watching this show you need to asap. While you’re at it, watch Arrow too πŸ™‚

Orphan Black
