Valentine’s Day + Book Boyfriends


Overall, our book boyfriends tend to fall into one of two categories: the perfectly mannered, adorable goody-two shoes or the standoffish bad boy with the dark past.

Interestingly, we have a tendency to be extremely critical of the representations of our book boyfriends in their movie or television series adaptations.  We begin to create a mental image of the character’s appearance while reading and find it challenging to replace this picture with that of an actor who shares little to no similarities with my own depiction.  We find it especially off-putting if the actor is significantly older or younger than the description of the character that he is portraying from the book.

Here are a few of our favorite book boyfriends, in no particular order:

I am a senior in high school and an avid reader/reviewer, horseback rider, and graphic designer.  Since a young age, I have fostered a love of reading, beginning with my forays into the Nancy Drew series.  I’ve branched out significantly in my reading tastes since then, and my favorite genres include young adult, romance, mystery, and thriller.  I’m constantly trying to expand my horizons, however, so I do dabble in other genres.  While I’m not reading, I volunteer at a hippotherapy center and a veterinary clinic, practice agility with my dogs, play piano, and sketch.
