Book boyfriends/girlfriends TAG!

Hi fellow bookworm! 

Today I've decided to tag YOU! Yes, you - the one who's just reading this thing and is wondering what's it all about. Well, I'm challenging you to pick your favorite three book boyfriends/girlfriends. 


As I'm the one who started the tag, I'll pick my three favorite boyfriends in no particular order:


3. Holden Caulfield



I think I'll never forget Holden, I really did fell in love with him and it was just so wonderful reading his thoughts. I know that The Catcher in the Rye is one of the classics, but it didn't feel like it. J.D. Salinger's novel was definitely ahead of its time. You can read more about Holden, as he is very accurately described here.


I think, even, if I ever die, and they stick me in a cemetery, and I have a tombstone and all, it'll say 'Holden Caulfield' on it, and then what year I was born and what year I died, and then right under that it'll say 'Fuck you.' I'm positive, in fact.”


2. Jaime Lannister, The Kingslayer



I am so afraid that George Martin will kill him off that it is almost embarrassing to admit. I love him, he is a strong character and he is fearless like a lion. Jaime lives up to his fathers expectations by being everything that Lannisters are proud of and I get that in some ways he might be a baddie, but everything Jaime does is out of love. He is a lion in love with the wrong lioness. That's not his fault, right?


There are no men like me. There's only me.”


1. Robbie Turner



So, I don't know if you remember Robbie Turner, but I've talked about him once. He is oh so charming in Atonement, a very sad book - at least from my point of view. 


In my dreams I kiss your cunt, your sweet wet cunt. In my thoughts I make love to you all day long.”


There you go, I picked my three all time favorites, even though my book boyfriends are starting to pile up by now. Sutter Keely was definitely up for the running, Shaun Mason, Lochan Whitely and many other great characters. I decided on these three because their story is somehow unique. If they would be real, I'd definitely have more than just a crush. 

So, SHARING IS CARING. Tag anyone you want, also make sure you like this post or give me a heads up that you're doing this so I can like it and follow you!
