Tell Me Something Tuesday!


Hi, everybody!

I usually don't participate in that many memes, but I decided to join in on Tell Me Something Tuesday this week, hosted by Cambria Hebert, the awesome author of Masquerade. It's just a cool meme to help bloggers get to know each other by answering a question. And who doesn't want to get to know other bloggers? :)

This week's question is:

Who are your book boyfriends? 

Oh gosh. You don't ask a bookish girl that question without expecting some really long answer that no one wants to read! x)

I actually have a shelf on Goodreads labeled Boys I Wish Were Real (to help manage how many times I fall head over heels for fictional boys), but if I had to go with a few to share...

  • Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare : He's Exhibit A when I say that snarky boys are always favourites next to super-sweet boys and bad boys! ;)
  • Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare : Because you can't have one of Cassie's boys without mentioning the other!
  • Archer Cross from the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins : Exhibit B for proving that snarkiness in boys is always a selling trait! :)
  • Alex Wakeman from Hunting Lila : Looooooooove him so much!! ♥ If I had an older brother who had an awesome best friend, I'd pray his name is Alex and that he rides a motorcyle.
  • Tod Hudson from the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent : I've been faithfully Team Tod since the very first book, and I don't think Rachel Vincent can do anything to change that! He's what makes reaping death less morbid than it is! ;) 
  • Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins : A book boyfriend list isn't complete without this French/English/American boy with a British accent! I'm sure that St. Clair is everyone's dream boy.
  • Ash from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa : In my dream world, I'm Meghan and Ash is my winter prince. Enough said.
  • Adrian Ivashkov from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead : Don't hit me... but I've always been Team Adrian over Team Dimitri (and no, it has nothing to do with the fact that I have to research whether or not he has an extra "i" in Dimitri's name every time I spell it)! x)
  • Aiden St. Delphi from the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout : If you haven't read a JLA book yet, then I need to brainwash you into doing so because she always writes the most amazing book boyfriends!
  • Alex & Julian from Delirium & Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver : Even though I was faithfully all Alex in Delirium, I have to admit that Julian stole my heart in book two for pure sweetness and innocence! 
  • Jack from Everneath by Brodi Ashton : If you're looking for a sweet, amazing, and totally  heartbreaking boy, this is HIM. I have a major love for this boy because of how he acts throughout the book and what he does in the end!
  • Tucker Avery from Unearthly by Cynthia Hand : I was pretty sure I wanted to marry him in this first book. Who doesn't love a sweet, sexy, and wholeheartedly good cowboy?
  • Christian Prescott from Hallowed by Cynthia Hand : I decided to divorce Tucker to elope with Christian after reading Hallowed. Trust me, it wasn't exactly a planned decision. x)
  • Ezekiel Cross from The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa : They don't make boys like Zeke anymore. :')

NOTE: This isn't even half of my list. x)

Who are YOUR book boyfriends? Are you as easily swept off your feet by fictional boys as I am (and disappointed by real ones LOL)? Do we have any in common? :)

Have an amazing Tuesday, you guys!



  1. This is an awesome list Mimi, I actually also have a shelf on my gr called literary crushes. Alex, Etienne and Tucker would totally get my vote too, some of my other favourites include; Gale from Heist Society, Barrons from the Fever series and Adam from Where She Went, I think I will go and check your list out now :)

  2. Ahhhh *faints* HOLY FREAKING CRAP, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR LIST!!!! Ohmygoodness, Mimi, you're a total MIND-READER!!
    JACEEE! Gosh, he's like, THE SEXIST GUY ALIVE.
    ALEXXX! Seriously. HOTNESS. (hahaaa, I'm like totally thinking of Brodie's "Predict the title" post - and there were all these insanely awesome titles featuring Alex - e.g EYEFUCKING ALEX)
    ARCHER! Oh man. I fell for him in Hex Hall, but haven't gotten round to reading the next two books :S
    AIDENN! Wow. HOTNESS.INCARNATE. I'm reading Half-Blood at the moment, and gosh, he's HOT.
    ADRIAN! haha, after reading your line on Adrian/Dimitri, I totally forgot how to spell "Adrian" :S
    ALEXXX! OMG. I haven't read Pandemonium yet, but I think I'll be falling for Julian as well! BUT NOOOOO! MY ALEX<333
    JACKKK! *sobs* His actions broke my heart </3 NOOOOO! I NEED EVERBOUND NOW!!!
    EZEKIEL! EEEEEEEEEEEE! He's my newest.wait. 2ND NEWEST obsession! (newest being AIDEN!)

    Haha, I'm sooo sorry for the insanely long comment, but yeahh...I'm procrastinating right now..and just thought I'd share my thoughts on the guys you mentioned :D

  3. Oh, how sweet, Mimi! I have no idea how to show how much I LOVE your list! <3 I'm giggling like crazy right now LOL! x) I adore your list, there are so many boys I wish were real from your list here!! Book boyfriend is one of my favorite topic, and I can go on and on how much I love fictional guys! xD

    Don't worry, Mimi, I'm team Adrian all the way too! Adrian <3 How I wish he were real! x) Adrian is one of the first fictional characters I truly fall in love with! <3 If they make Vampire Academy into a movie, I think Chace Crawford would be the best for Adrian! He's just got the bad boy vibe and so-gorgeous look! <3 Which actor do you think would be the perfect Adrian, Mimi? :)

    I can comment on each guy you put in this list, but then it would be an essay when I finish LOL! Your book boyfriend list is perfect, Mimi! ♥ I hope you have a lovely Tuesday! :)

  4. BAHAHAHAHAHA MIMI. If I had a penny for every time you made me smile, I would be a bajillionaire!! <33333333 I can safely say that every single boy on your list is also on mine -- some of which I will share, and some that I won't. :P But it was your commentary that made me burst out laughing! That bit about Dimitri was genius (because I'm totally Team Adrian too!) and I remember you fangirling about the first book since the beginning! The first thing you said when you finished MSTT was, "I really like that Tod guy! I hope he's in future books." To which I had to laugh because boy is he ever in future books (x

    As readers, we all have multiple muses so I TOTALLY understand your extensive list, Mimi! (You should see mine!) All it means is that you have a HUGE heart! :P <33

  5. Ooh fab. list! Tucker!! JACE!!! haha. I'm a book boyfriend slut!

  6. Oh my goodness! You divorced Tucker for Christiam too?! I never thought I would see the day when I had to divorce Tucker and believe me it was HARD but oh my..... you know exactly what I mean don't you? :-)

    Love that you have a shelf on GR for the boys you fall head over heals with. LOL. Every girl needs one of those. ;-)

    Your choices are fabulous. I haven't met all of these hunka hunka burning loves but your stamp of approval tells me all I need to know! I can't wait to read Everneath!

    Thanks so much for joining in Tell Me Something Tuesday this week! Your answers are awesome! :-)

  7. I see so many great choices and ones I completely agree with I don't even know where to start LOL!

    Awesome choices!!

  8. lol you have a really great list; many I can agree with :P

  9. I thought I was married to Will, Christian and Etienne! The papers lied to me!!! If only polygamy was legal with fictional characters *sigh* =)))

  10. The one that I 100% agree with is Jack from Everneath-I love that boy! Otherwise your list reminds me of all the other great YA books I need to read so that I can swoon over some cuties. I almost picked up the first Soul Screamer book this weekend but restrained myself when I remembered how many review books I need to get through first.

  11. I love you Mimi and let me tell you why. First, you're adorable. Second, your list is ridiculously long and that just makes me happy because it's almost as long as my book boyfriend list. Plus, we have similar taste in book boyfriends though I may employ every dirty trick in the book to lure Jace away from you and toward me. I mean no offense, but you can't have him. Stay away woman!!! ;-)

  12. Lol have your mom and dad seen this list? I know some of those guys and they are indeed good picks.

  13. Oh Mimi - I absolutely LOVE all your book boyfriends! And your reasons are so true! I have to admit I still need to finish both Hex Hall and Delirium, but the boys sound pretty awesome so I'm totally making sure to make those to be read asap. This week my book boyfriend is Blue Valentine from Kill Me Softly, he's one of those snarky bad boys that I can't get enough of. I'll be sharing him this Thursday!

    Thank you for sharing the boys Mimi - have a great week! <3<3<3

  14. Oh I really love the ones you've chosen. I need to read some though because I didn't know them. Amazing choice mimi!

  15. Very nice list Mimi, Almost everybody on yours is on mine:
    Etienne St. Clair ♥♥♥
    Tucker Avery ♥♥
    Jace Wayland ♥♥
    BUT you missed Four from Divergent!!

    Bookmarks & Bookshelves

  16. Book Boyfriends!!! My favorite topic of all time!!! I think you know how long my list is, and it grows with every book I read. Seriously.

    And I love your list, though there are a few I haven't read yet, and I must soon so I can steal them away from you!!! LOL

  17. Very awesome book boyfriends. We agree on so many! I love St. Clair, too (though he's another one who didn't make my list). I have yet to meet some of these guys, but now I definitely want to. ;)

  18. Hi Mimi! So glad you joined in this week. Love your list, now you can see it isn't that easy to answer the questions, but lots of fun. I loved your list, I know almost all of them. Oh I so agree about Adrian, that scene in Bloodlines when he is distracting the guy at the tatoo shop amd he wants to get thr ninja pirate skull with flames...so funny!

  19. Woww Mimi your list is endless xD And they're ALL awesome! You make me want to read The Immortal Rules and Everneath!!! And I'm Team Adrian all the way as well <3 I LOVE Etienne St. Clair! Love love! He definitely raises the bar, haha. Cricket made my list though, instead of Etienne, cuz at the moment Cricket seems a bit more adorable and real! Awesome list, Mimi :D

  20. LOL.. wow, you have a lot. The only one on your list that I'm familiar with firsthand, is Jack from Everneath. Agreed though, he is pretty swoon worthy.

  21. Mimi you are amazing!! I love your list!! And the comments about why choosing the boys even more!! I love you sweety! :) ;) You're the best! <3 <3

  22. Yes TEAM ADRIAN! I always spell Dimitry wrong too lol But I would never divorce Tucker! I hate Christian. He is arrogant just like Tucker said! But I love Tod! And Ezekiel! But I love Jem not Will. Will drives me crazy.

  23. By the end of the third MI book Jace did win me over! The jury is still out for me on Will though there is something about him that makes me WANT to love him. I have to read CP soon.

    I'll be meeting Etienne soon and I can't wait! Your book boyfriends sound amazing and a I see you have a really eclectic selection!

  24. Oh my gosh, why did I have to read your post when I was in class? (rethorical question; who could resist a post about book boyfriends? <3) I was totally smiling like a fool through all of it! Indeed, what an amazing post.

    Now that you've brought this out, I was about to create a new shelf on GR about perfect book boyfriends, too! I wanted SO BADLY to add Po from Graceling to the list. And now you made me remember all the others I had to add!

    In my case I liked Cricket more than Etienne, but it doesn't matter since they're both made of boyfriend material! Oh, and don't let me get started on Ash. Gosh, how I adore those series. In my case I was rooting for Dimitri (you have o check how to spell it? how curious! lol) but Adrian... Adrian... Can't. Resist. I really can't wait to read The Golden Lily. I can't ever get enough of him! Aaaah, Tucker! I loved him, too. And you say you divorced and eloped with Christian in Hallowed? Ugh, need to read it as soon as possible. In the first book I was all for Tucker, though, but can't wait to see if I like Christian as much as you did in the second.

    BUT you forgot Adam from Shatter Me! He's, like, on the top of my list. Sorry but her place is indisputable.

    Today I started new semester (exam on the first hour, not that great of a day) but with this super awesome post you made my day! So, thank you Mimi ♥

    PS: I'm going to see that list of yours you mentioned RIGHT NOW.

  25. Hehe, I love this list so much, Mimi! YES to Archer Cross, so perfectly snarky and caring! Etienne St. Clair is so dreamy and I liked how real he seemed. High five for Adrian! I vastly prefer him over Dimitri and it may or may not also have to do with the fact Dimitri has a ponytail. In a chat, Jennifer Armentrout said guys like Adrian don't exist in the real world because he's so nice and caring and basically perfect. Sigh. :( If only! I also love that you love Julian too, I want EVERYONE to love him. This brought a huge smile to my face! ♥

  26. I am in love with nearly every character on your list Mimi! I'm glad we seem to fall for the same boys. ;) It makes me so happy to see Will and Jace right at the top. You must have thought of them first, right? I love them both and love that you love them too! :D Aiden, Archer, and the two Alex's are other favourites of mine. It seems like 'A' names are the way to go lol! Awesome list. ;)

  27. Here we go! I'm going to write something for each of those boys like I did in Shirley's Tell Me Something Tuesday! ;)

    Jace: Oh Jace, how can you not love this awesome guy?

    Will: EEEEEPPP!! YES! TEAM WILL FOREVER. No matter what happened in CP, I hope Will will end up with Tessa in the last book!!!!!

    Archer: AAAA! I have to know this Archer Cross. I haven't read any of the books from Hex Hall series but if Mimi loves it, then Celine has to read it!

    Alex: OH YESSSSSSS!!!! Who wouldn't want a brother like him? I CAN'T WAIT FOR LOSING LILA. I expect TONS of Alex there!

    Tod: AAAAAA!!! Why haven't I read the Soul Screamers series? I HAVE TO BUY THE FIRST BOOK ASAP. I want to see this TOD Mimi loves! ;)

    Etienne St. Clair: MY ALLTIME FAVOURITE BOOK CRUSH. Like you said, a list of book boyfriends will never be complete without this HYBRID. XP ♥

    Ash: YES YES YES!! This gorgeous fae prince, LOVE HIM. ♥

    Adrian: AAA, I haven't read Bloodlines because I'm keeping it closer to the release date of The Golden Lily but Adrian in the VA series = AWESOME.

    Aiden: Another awesome series I HAVEN'T READ. I so want to know who this Aiden is!!!! I have to read The Covenant series SOON!

    Alex & Julian: NO!! Haha, well I was very intrigued with Julian and kinda fell for him but I will always be Team Alex. I will faithfully support him until the trilogy ends! ♥

    Jack: YES! I love Jack. But also I love Cole as much as I love Jack. So when I read Everneath, I was pretty sure I love Cole more than Jack but the ending made me love Jack too. So I am TEAM JACK COLE! (Hey, that actually sounds like a single person's name! ;)

    Tucker: OMG YES! I was Team Tucker all the way when reading Unearthly. ♥


    Christian: Like you Mimi, I changed to Team Christian after reading Hallowed. It wasn't planned at all too! :P I thought I was still going to be Team Tucker but Christian completely stole my heart by the end of Hallowed. ♥

    Ezekiel: I WANT TO READ THE IMMORTAL RULES NOW! AAAA, this guy sounds AWESOME and anything by Julie Kagawa is bound to be AMAZING!

    Thank you for reading my mini-essay, Mimi! ;) ♥ PERFECT LIST!

  28. Let me just tell you Mimi, you and I have very VERY similar taste in book boys! Jace Wayland is probably my favorite too, but OHEMGEE, Jack Caputo in Everneath!!! I bawled my eyes out several times over how amazing that boy was. He was caring and sweet and everything a girl could ever want! Such an amazing list! Loving your choices!

    Darlene @ Leather Bound and Lovely

  29. Oh my gosh. I love your list, haha! I've never been a fan of Jace and Will—I'm a Jem girl!—but I love Adrian Ivashkov. I loved him in Vampire Academy and probably will in Bloodlines, too. Is he given much more attention in Bloodlines? What makes it different?

    While I've only finished The Iron King so far, as I haven't been able to find TID yet, I also like Ash... but I can't say whether I like him more than Puck. The characters seem one-dimensional at this point! Fingers crossed I'll understand them more soon!

    As for me... Oh my gosh, I should think about this! Off the top of my head, though, I'd say Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices, Adrian Ivashkov from Vampire Academy, Max Vandenburg from The Book Thief, and Nathaniel from The Bartimaeus Trilogy. I really need to think about this more...

    Thanks for sharing, and I hope you had a great Tuesday!

  30. Adrian and Etienne?

    Mimi: I will have you know that I will fight for them :D

    Fun meme. I have so many book boyfriends. It's not even funny.

    I also spot Will Herondale from TID. Love him, too.

    My top ones are Rhode Lewin from Infinite Days and Adrian Ivashkov since Frostbite and I adored him in Bloodlines. Then Jem comes in at a 3rd right now, haha. <3

  31. Wow, what an awesome list! Adrian, Will, Jace, Ash, Etienne, ... Dying here, hahaha XD I love most of these characters, as well <3


  32. love this post! Think I'll hop over to goodreads and make my own book boyfriend list:)

  33. Oh my gosh!!! Jace Wayland, Will Herondale, Alex Wakeman, Tod Hudson, Etienne St. Clair, Tucker Avery! <3 <3 <3

    We have many in common! (I haven't read the rest of the books yet)

    Love this post! <3

  34. Mimi, I love this list like you don't even believe. Alex? Umm GIVE TO ME. (I love Julian too but...I'm a die-hard first love fan. haha!) And what you said about Ash was hilarious! And your second marriage with Christian - yeah, I definitely laughed out loud. Poor Tucker. ;P AND.... JACK CAPUTO!!!!!!!!! OMG I am already pining to re-read "Everneath" because I'm such a sucker for Jack. aaaaaaahhh SIGH. :)

    Thanks for making my evening so full of laughs!! :D

  35. Oh my goodness, I swear this is going to start a war. I swear Celine's going to be taking down names and address and coming round with death threats for anyone who gets too close to St. Clair :D

    EEK! SERIOUSLY EPIC LIST... can you imagine if you got to spend the day with lal those boys? :D

  36. *thud*
    *is dead from hotness overload*
    *spirit plans on suing Mimi in the form of hot book boys for causing death*

    ADRIAN. ADRIAN. ADRIAN. I always shipped Dimitri/Rose, but Adrian? MIIIIIIINE. I do want him with Sydney, though! Oh gosh, and yes yes yes to ETIENNE, Alex x2, Tucker and Jack!

    PLUS: The Merrick boys & Hunter, NOAH SHAW, Daemon Black, Four... crap, I swear I'm missing someone. But holy hotness.... YA boys... too much sexy... post.... is.... WIN.

  37. *is totally, 100% with Brodie on this one*


    Jace: YESSSSSS. He was one of the first YA boys I fell for and even though I kind of sigh when he wins those YA Crush tournaments every single time... I love him :) So sarcastic and hilarious and gorgeous and complicated... Jaaaaace <3

    Will: HEY HEY HEY. Why WILL when you can have JEM?!?! D: I mean, I love Will... but JEM! <3 *is distracted for 4798234732894 hours by Jem's name*

    Archer, Alex, Todd: O.O but... but... I haven't read about them yet! COME TO MEEEEE, BOOKS!

    St. Clair: I heart this boy so hard <3 <3 <3 Not ONLY does he have a sexy accent but he is so... dreamy.

    Ash: BACK OFF, LADY ;) Brodie and Lisa's quiz during the Feb. event said he was mine so... sorry about that. (Unless you got him too in which case... nevermindwecanshare)

    Adrian: Um... why would I hit you? :O ME TOO, ALWAYS <3 I mean, I think Dimitri is way better suited for Rose but personally? ADRIAN ALL THE WAY. I can't believe I haven't read Bloodlines yet!

    Aiden, Julian, Jack: *whistles innocently* Sooooooon!

    Alex: I LOVE THIS BOY TO THE MOON AND BACK. He's like sunshine :)

    Tucker: I fell so hard for Tucker and it really surprised me! He was so charming and just the sweetest, most genuine guy though <3

    HOW DARE YOU LEAVE POOR TUCKER? (has not yet read Hallowed) Guess I'll just have to take him ALL FOR MYSELF.

    Zeke: Ahhhh! I haven't even met him yet D: I swear, I'm reading TMI at GLACIAL PACE. Work, begone! I need to swoon more this week :(



  38. What a clever idea, making a list on goodreads! I always fall "in love" with boys in the books, but I manage to forget them every time..

    I just read Kill me softly - Sarah Cross and although the main character annoyed the crap out of me, I really liked Blue!

    I think I'm going to snatch your idea :D I'm going to make my own Goodreads list for it.

  39. I will fight you for Alex, Mimi. I will. I wouldn't normally fight with a friend over a boy, but it's ALEX. :D Or we can share. We can make some sort of custody agreement, I'm totally up for that.
    Adrian you can keep, lol. I'm a Dimitri girl through and through. :)

  40. Thanks for finally talking about > "Tell Me Something Tuesday!" < Liked it!
