Today’s Top Five Wednesday is all about one of my favorite bookish feelings—swooning over book characters. The topic comes with a bit of a flash to the past, as I’ll be talking about characters I swooned over when I was younger. A girl is never too young for book boyfriends!
Gayle Hawthorne from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins– #teamgaleforever
Brian McBrian from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares– Brian stole both mine and Tibby’s hearts. If you’re looking for a series about friendship and full of feels pick up The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants ASAP!
Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows by J.K.Rowling– Let’s be honest, this is a nostalgic book boyfriend that will forever continue to exist.
Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green– I read The Fault in Our Stars back in the seventh or eighth grade— I consider myself a book hipster for reading this one BEFORE any film adaptation news came out- and Augustus Waters stole my heart form the get-go. I’m able to relive my relationship with him every time I watch TFIOS, which is actually one of my favorite book to movie adaptations!
Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins– Okay, so if I can’t have Gale, I’ll gladly take Finnick please!
