Top Ten Tuesday Rewind - Top Ten Fictional Crushes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, a state that you don't have to worry about being deprived of more books as long as you're near a library. ;) This week's Top Ten is:

Top Ten Rewind - Top Ten Fictional Crushes

1. Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - Sensitive, sweet, although sometimes furry, this wolfish poet is quite a catch.

2. Bigby Wolf from Fables by Bill Willingham - I think of Bigby as a different form of Wolverine while also being a bit more sensitive.

3. Valek from Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - He's a spy and a warrior, how much more awesome can you get?  Oh, he also carves beautiful statues. :)

4. Tolmac from The Princess's Dragon by Susan Trombley - If you ever needed someone to depend on, you know you could depend on Tolmac.

5. Gabriel from Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Clause - Tough guy with a sensitive side, he made me swoon.

6. George from The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce - Move over Robin Hood, here's the real king of thieves.

7. Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - He was my classic literature hero, and you cannot help crushing on a man who is able to redeem himself.

8. Cyrano from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmund Rostand - Romantic, eloquent with a unique profile.  Once you get past the nose, he's quite the man. 

9. Joaquim from The Nymph King by Gena Showalter - I think it was his tough-guy attitude that got to me.

10. Janco from Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - Janco is a guy that could always make you laugh, and I adore guys with a sense of humor.  Plus, you could always spar with him if you're miffed.


  1. I looooved Rafe from Blood and Chocolate, even if he was a jerk no matter which way you looked at him. Good list!

  2. I love that you included Janco on this list! He's such a great character.

  3. I love that you picked Sydney Carton! Great picks :)

  4. I love Valek, although I prefer his character in Poison Study.

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  5. Great list. I really like Sam from Shiver too.

  6. Cyrano is such a famous character I should get to finally reading the book.

  7. I chose this Top Ten for the week too.

  8. Great reads, nice picks!

    Come by and see mine and my giveaways!

  9. I like Sam too - such an all round lovely guy and very nice to see that in YA where the trend seems to run to a lot of mysterious and arrogant male love interests!

  10. But, I ask, could I actually get past the nose? Mmmm.

    Nice list!

    Here's my post for Top Ten Tuesday, a list of the books that most intimidate me.

    And I'll be part of the Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop Giveaway that begins tomorrow. I hope you will stop by my blog and enter my giveaways to try to win some great prizes.

  11. lol My first book crush ever was F'lar from Dragonflight... he's so intelligent and in charge, and, even though I can't actually see them, he has the most beautiful amber eyes. ;b

  12. I love your number 6! Did you know that in her first draft of the books that Tamora Pierce had Alanna marrying Jonathan? I would have not liked those books half as much if that was the ending as I love George!


Thank you for visiting. :) I do appreciate any and all comments received and try to reply as soon as I can. Happy reading!
