Top Ten Tuesday: Book Boyfriends


Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends. I couldn’t resist this topic! If you’d like to check out my reviews, the link text will direct you there.

Harry Potter

Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
When I was younger, I actually kind of liked Draco Malfoy’s character. Don’t judge me! Also, Remus Lupin for some reason.

The Kingmaker's Daughter

Richard III from The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory
My favourite Plantagenet! 🙂 I reckon this is partly because I have a crush on Aneurin Barnard who portrayed him in The White Queen miniseries.

Who's That Girl

Elliot Owen from Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane
Elliot is a good-looking, sweet and funny actor. He’s got a lot of layers.

One of Us is Lying

Nate Macauley from One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Right now, I’m reading One of Us is Lying and I really like Nate’s character. He reminds me of John Bender from The Breakfast Club. I know he’s got a reputation as a bad boy, but there’s something about him.


Jalal al-Khoury from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I actually prefer Jalal to Khalid as I think his character is more interesting and charming.

a game of thrones

Jon Snow from A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Jon Snow is a very likeable character, plus he’s brave and loyal.


Lord Carlston from The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
It’s safe to say I have a penchant for the mysterious Lord Carlston.


Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Rhett is passionate and swoon-worthy.


Edward Fairfax Rochester from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Mr Rochester is the Byronic hero. He’s tall, dark and enigmatic.


Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Mr Darcy has so many female admirers! His character is deliciously aloof at first and I think he’s the ultimate book boyfriend.

Thanks for reading this list. Who are your book boyfriends? Do they feature on this list? Please let me know in the comments. Until next time, readers!

    1. Yes! I must admit, it probably has something to do with the good-looking actor who played him in the films! 😉 Mr Knightley and Captain Wentworth are great choices!
