Top 10 Tuesdays (5)

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which features a variety of bookish top ten lists!


This week's Top 10 theme is: Top Ten Tuesday Freebie! So this week we get to pick our theme.  Since last week was about the ladies, I decided to balance things out and go with Top 10 Crush-Worthy Boys of All Time.

1. Edward Cullen - The Twilight Saga.  Edward was my very first fictional obsession as an adult and I have never, ever gotten over him.  Vampires are sexy.  Tortured souls are sexy.  Protective 'mate-for-life' men are sexy.  Edward Cullen is SEXY.  Robert Pattinson definitely helped along my crush...especially reading the books while picturing HIM as Edward...with those golden eyes... *sigh*. Uhm...yeah... he can stalk me any day!

2. Jericho Barrons -The Fever Series. I'll admit that while I was attracted to him physically right away (talk dark and bad is SO my type) I didn't fall for him entirely...at first.  He could be such a dick douche.  But his raw animal magnetism got to me eventually.  I dreamed of him as I was reading the series and I even re-read some of the hotter parts of Dreamfever & Shadowfever a few times over...

3. Akiva - Daughter of Smoke & Bone.  A guy as devoted as Akiva is sexy, period.  The trials he endured and the effect it all had on him only heightens his appeal.  Add dark hair and intense eyes that are also amber O.O ... and we have a winner in my book any day! Yum.

4. Ky Markham -The Matched Trilogy.  Ky is so the type of guy I'd fall for by his psychical appearance alone. (dark hair...I'm so predictable.)   But what really got me was hs way with words, his attentiveness and his quiet pride.  Plus he has a nice touch of destiny about him that he's not sure he can fulfill....*blinks* where was I?

5.  Peeta Mellark - The Hunger Games Trilogy.  I'll admit at first Ihad a hard time choosing what team I was on; both Peeta & Gale are awesome boys.  By halfway in though I realized I'd chosen Peeta and never went back.  Peeta is just so devoted and funny and so freakin' sweet!  He's adorable and I won't deny it- Team Peeta!

6. Harry Potter - The Harry Potter Series.  What kind of a book lover would I be if I didn't mention Harry Potter.  I prefer the book version because you get to go inside his thoughts & feelings but I do love Daniel Radcliffe's portrayal as well.  Harry brave, selfless and strong; he's is my ultimate hero, and how can you not have a character like that?  ♥

7. Jace Wayland - The Mortal Instruments Series.  While I had my ups and downs with the series as a whole, and even though I didn't crush on him right away; Jace Wayland belongs on this list.  The moment he and Clary kissed, that was it.  Oh my does dreaming about kissing Jace get me hot and bothered!  Especially when you picture Jace as Alex Pettyfer. Yeah.

8. Aragorn - The Lord of the Rings. So. freaking. sexy.  In the books as well as in the movies, I fell for Aragorn, hard.  He's another classic hero figure who's devoted and brave to the very core.

9. Jared Howe - The Host.  It has recently come to my attention that I am in the minority here, most fans of The Host appear to be team Ian O'Shea.  I guess I kind of like jerks sometimes (who doesn't like a bad boy?) because for me, it was always Jared.  He's a rebellious and intense I'm a sucker for intensity.   Ian was pretty awesome too though, that's what made The Host so good!

10. Four/Tobias- The Divergent Series.  I'd never leave out Four, he's just too appealing to forget!  What I wouldn't give for a nice one on one training session...ahem!  Anyways...you guys know ;)

Special Mentions: I almost added Jacob Jankowski (Water for Elephants) but since it included Robert Pattinson again, I figured it was kind of cheating ;)  Zuko was another finalist but since he's from a cartoon series (Avatar: The Last Airbender) he got left out.   And since I just started reading the Covenant Series, I didn't think it was fair to add Aiden just yet...gotta save some for another TTT!

 What Top Ten did you do this week?  Link me up below so I can go check yours out and don't forget to let me know if you're a new follower!

  1. Love your list! I haven't read all the books on your list, but I definitely agree with Edward and Aragorn! I didn't really have a crush on Harry, he was more like a best friend to me.

  4. Fantastic list! Edward was my first fictional obsession as an adult, too. Though my affection has moved on to guys like Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices, Edward will always have a special place in my heart. :)

    1. Yay a fellow Team Edward Member :D haha and I know what you mean, one of my close friends always preferred Ron to Harry. I do love Ron as well, but there's just something about Mr Potter ♥ And I can totally relate seeing both sides where Peeta & Gale are concerned!

  13. Thanks for commenting on my post =)
    I was glad that Katniss ended up with Peeta, but only for one reason. Gale still had his family, but Peeta had no-one but Katniss in the end.
