Tuesdays are for Top Ten Tuesday which I started joining last week, and for this week’s topic ~

Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character.

Ah, this topic will make me sound like a mushy high-schooler, so please pardon the fan-girling. The list is in no particular order:

1. Todd Wilkins of the infamous Sweet Valley series. I think Todd is my first ever bookish crush. πŸ™‚

2. Archie Andrews of Archie comics. How couldn’t I? I practically grew up with this popular comic book.

3. Ned Nickerson of the Nancy Drew series. While I was in elementary, I daydreamed I was Nancy Drew, so itΒ  follows that her boyfriend was also my boyfriend. Heh. πŸ˜›

4. Zachary Benedict of Judith Mcnaught’s Perfect. I was never really a fan of romance books ( I still am), but when a friend lent me her copy of this book, the story stayed with me for a long time.

5. Gale Hawthorne of The Hunger Games. I love tough lo0king, ruggedly handsome boys, err, men.

6. Ezra of Anne Tyler’s Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant. Ezra is silent and brooding, and his sentimentality just tugs my heartstrings each time.

7.Travis Cornell of Dean Koontz’z Watchers. Again, silent and brooding, Travis also possesses strength of character. It also follows that Watchers is one of my most favorite novels and Dean Koontz is one of my most favorite authors.

8. Augustus Waters of John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars. Oh, but what he said at the end of the book totally got me.

9. Dexter of Sarah Dessen’s This Lullaby. Read this a couple of months back, and as I’ve said in my review, Dexter may not be boyfriend material but his clumsiness and childish ways are just so endearing.

10. LincolnΒ of Rainbow Rowell’s Attachments. Ohhh, the feels. Lincoln is an adorable geek, so quiet and unassuming. Always reminds me of my husband, Gian.Β β™₯


Making this list was a bit hard considering that I don’t read romance or love stories, but I enjoyed recalling my childhood bookish crushes. Until next week! Happy Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  1. I couldn’t help but laugh at the thought of Ned. It’s funny because I play those Nancy Drew computer games every once in a while and you can just call Ned on her cell phone and talk to him. Really takes the whole imaginary dating to the next level πŸ˜›

  2. I love Augustus, too. That book totally deserves all the awards/praise it gets. πŸ™‚ And I need to read another Sarah Dessen soon because all her boys are showing up on the lists today.

  3. You are the second other person I’ve seen with Dex on their list! This makes me happy. I loooved how he was so convinced that he and Remy (I think that was the girl’s name?) are meant to be together. They are because they are super cute and I love him and I wish I could be Remy. πŸ˜€

    My Top Ten! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Gabbi! πŸ™‚

      Dexter is so funny and romantic at the same time, and I loved how he was so persistent with Remy.

      Thanks for dropping by! πŸ™‚

  4. Hello, Lynai! I know only 2 guys in your list — Gale and Archie.

    I didn’t know that you were a Koontz fan! I see several of his books in bargain bins, but I didn’t pay any attention to these books. I will try to buy 1!

    1. I was a Koontz fan since college, but lately though I laid low reading his books. Nakakaumay din minsan. πŸ˜€ My all-time favorites are Watchers (about a genius dog) and Lightning (about time travel). You might try to check either of these, or The Taking, which is a common favorite among Koontz fans too. πŸ™‚

  5. Aw, I miss Archie Comics. Love that freckle faced, carrot top too. And I see Dexter wormed his way into your list. And while you’re on Team Gale, I am, on the other hand, Team Peeta. πŸ™‚ Curious about Rainbow Rowell now.

    1. Dexter is just laughingly adorable, no? I’ve always been Team Gale, most especially after I saw the movie. Hee.

      Oh yes, do please read Attachments, and meet my ultimate bookish crush, hihihi. It’s such a feel-good, mushy, all-the-feels novel. <3
