Book Crushes : Dreams vs. Reality

Trash Tuesday (8).png

I have too many book boyfriends. I love them and I have no apologies for any of them. But realistically, I know i’m never ending up with the guy I dream about. I’m getting the one “more compatible with my personality” BLAH BLAH BLAH.

So here are the boyfriends I want vs who I would really end up with. Let me know who your book crushes are in the comments!

Enjoy my crazy!

The Mortal Instruments

Who I crush on: Jace Herondale of course! He is gorgeous and sarcastic and an altogether badass.

Who I would actually end up with: Simon Lewis. I would 100% make out with my nerdy best friend and lead them on. Not saying it’s a nice thing to do, but I know who I was as a 16 year old.

The Raven Boys

Who I crush on: Ronan Lynch. When I read this series I had the worst bad-boy crush on Ronan. I mean he is getting his own series for a reason people!

Who I would actually end up with: Richard Gansey III. Honestly, I have called my husband President Cellphone since that first book. They are twins minus the whole “hunting dead kings” thing.

Throne of Glass

Who I crush on: Rowan Whitehorn duhh. (And Manon too). Let’s be honest, i’m not finding some beautiful fae prince to be my consort. Some things are not in the cards. Also, not a fan of cleaning up after birds.

Who I would actually end up with: Chaol Westfall. As much as I hate it, I have to say that Chaol is probably the most likely option from this crew. Everyone else is extremely extra and while I can’t stand Chaol, I’m no Celaena so things would have gone a little differently.

Harry Potter

Who I crush on: Victor Krum. No I don’t know why, but I loved Victor way too much in Goblet of Fire. Honestly, I was rooting for him and Hermione because sometimes the book loving girl just wants a guy who tells her that she is pretty! And he was a sweet gentleman when others treated her like crap.

Who I would actually end up with: Harry Potter. 100% I would end up with Harry 10 years later when he was ready for his second wife because Ginny finally realized that Harry didn’t do a whole lot on his own and isn’t actually very funny.

Folk of the Air

Who I crush on: King Roiben. He was my very first YA fantasy crush and he will remain so forever. I just love him in Modern Fairy Tales and lived for the scene where he ate chinese in a tent with Kaye. My goal for QON is King Roiben takes ALL of the thrones.

Who I would actually end up with: Locke. I was dumb when I was young and have definitely dated some Lockes in my day. The joy of getting older is that you can easily identify a fuckboy and generally they are really fun to ridicule and turn down.

Six of Crows

I had this on the list before finishing Crooked Kingdom. I no longer can answer this because my heart is still in shatters. THEY ARE ALL TOO GOOD.

  1. Book crushes vs. reality? You really went there! * high five * I can´t think of any book crushes but I do know that I´m always attracted to book assholes ( even the worst ) but for some reason, I just know I´ll end up with the deadly silent ones. This happens every damn time. I can´t seem to stick with a fictional asshole for long enough. Lol. Oh! Wait! I have one example. Cassian from ACOTAR. That constant eye contact, those many unspoken words- Guuurl! I´d be attracted to Rhys but I´d kick Cassian out of bed…. to continue on the floor.

  2. I love this post so much.

    YES. RONAN. I know he and I would never get together in real life, but a GIRL CAN DREAM.

    Also…I love Chaol. (I also didn’t get past the first book in the series.) Emo bois are kind of my jam. At least compared to Dorian (blech.)
