Top 10: Book Crushes!

If there’s one thing I love about reading a good book it’s the inevitable crush that can come along with the characters. I feel like we’ve all been there, obsessing over a fictional character and almost willing them into existence πŸ˜‚ My teenage years were as full of fictional boyfriends as they were celebrity crushes and I’m still not immune!

Here are a few of my top book crushes – not necessarily in any particular order – and the ones that I just can’t shake! Who would make your top 10 list?


Nate Macauley from One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus

Who doesn’t love a bad boy? Especially when he has a heart of gold and a soft spot for nerds 😍

Luis Santos from One of Us is Next by Karen McManus

Stereotypical hot jock who has a talent for cooking and a real soft side. Ideal. Plus that one scene with Maeve in CafΓ© Contigo 😍😍 – if you know, you know!

Mitch Hertzog from Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot

Picture this: a successful lawyer, with his shit together who will do anything (even calling out his brother) to make things right with you. Where can I find one??

Travis Parker from The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

With Southern charm in spades and a wit to match, I’d bother him for the rest of my life!

Denver Beck from the Demon Trappers series by Jana Oliver

Brave, capable and courageous – who wouldn’t want their very own demon trapper?

Dimitri Belikov from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

We’ve all had a crush on a teacher, right? When he’s training you in hand to hand combat and has a protective streak a mile wide, who would blame you?

Patch from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

A fall angel lands right at your feet with an easy smile and buckets of charm, falling for the mysterious new boy is totally normal!

Ethan Sullivan from the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill

He’s bossy, he’s clever and he’s impossible to ignore, Ethan is everything you’d want in your new vampire authority.

Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski

The point at which book crushes and celebrity crushes collide! I’m not sure whether it’s his grumpy nature or incredible monster-fighting skills (or the fact that I will forever picture him as Henry Cavill) but I’m sold!

Morozko from the Winternight trilogy by Katherine Arden

Unpredictable, otherworldly and with a soft spot for you and no one else. Demon or not, he had to make the list!


Do we have any of the same bookish crushes? Or is there someone I’ve missed? Which characters would you have chosen? I’d love to know! 

You can always find me over on Instagram and Twitter if you’re looking for a book chat! 😊

  1. When I was a pre-teen I was obsessed with the Sweet Valley High books – as in trawled the local classified ads for people selling them, stalked car boot sales and charity shops obsessed – and whilst the all American goody two shoes, Todd Wilkins, left me cold, I loved Bruce Patman, the rich bad boy. It was a habit I curse looking back at my first boyfriends πŸ˜‚
