Why I Love Wednesdays... Book Boyfriends

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Book Boyfriend

Why I Love...Peeta and Damon

Once upon a time, I was asked this question as part of another meme and I remember saying... hmmm... I don't really have a book boyfriend.  I just don't connect to characters like that.  Well I have since fallen.  Hard.  I am here today to proclaim my love for Peeta of The Hunger Games series and Damon of The Vampire Diaries (though I have not read one book...sue me).  These lovely guys aren't the first by any means.  I always had a soft spot for Jacob of the Twilight series but Peeta and Damon are special for a few specific reasons.

Peeta makes me say "ahhh" and I remember the things that he says from the top of my head.  Peeta's quotes just stick with me.  With the Hunger Games movie right around the corner, I am constantly reminded of his total sweet personality.  Peeta is such a sweetheart (though I'm not sure if I'm sold on the casting for his role).

As for Damon... he makes me say... well nothing.  I just look at him.  I'm talking about Damon from the TV show and not the book because I have no idea what Damon from the book is like but, you know, I do what I want.  So I have to admit that I'm in love with Damon's eyebrows.  They just totally do it for me.  I don't have anything sophisticated or half-way intelligent to say about this dude.  Just !!!  That is all.

Which Book Boyfriends do you love? Feel free to create your own post and post the link in the comments.  Don't want to create an entire post?  Tell me your favorites in the comments.  Thanks for stopping by for another week of Why I Love Wednesdays!!


If you want to play along, feel free to grab the image (there is a button on the right sidebar now) and add your post in the comments. Here goes.

No Linky this week.  As we have had a decline in participants, it has been pretty easy to find each other's posts.  We'll bring the linky back another week, shall we?


P.S.  I'm traveling for competition this week and I'm also on spring break. This means that I am not around at all!  I'm trying to pop in and out but it isn't really working.  I'll be back to look at all your lovely posts at the end of week.

  1. Book Boyfriends are a fantastic reason to love Wednesdays :)

    Peeta and Damon---what an interesting combo pick. They are polor opposites but if you are going to have two, they need to be different LOL

  3. Do you know I still haven't read TVD! Iso need to get on that because everyone raves about Damon. And I do love me some Peeta...he was also the highlight of the series for me. I can't wait to see THG. I'm not too sure about the actor playing him, but I hope he does his character justice.

    1. I haven't read TVD (guilty look) but I've seen the show :)

  4. DAMONNNNN. I am a sucker for that name, but mostly, for his character. I've only read the first two books, but I loved him in them...but I ADORE him on the show. For me, it's Ian's eyes. He is able to say SO SO much just with a look. Oh and his smirk. Ian does tormented bad-boy-with-a-heart better than anyone I've ever, ever seen. *swoons*

  5. I agree with not being sold about the casting of Peeta in the movie...hmmmm. Also, good picks for this topic! Though I must admit that I, too, have never read TVD or watched the show, Damon is sexy :) Here's my post:

    1. I know! Since Peeta is one of my favorites--probably more than Katniss--I will be sorely disappointed if he doesn't live up to my expectations.

  7. I'm torn between Peeta and Gale. But then I haven't read Mockinjay.

    1. Nooooo! Gale shouldn't even be a thought. So clearly I'm biased. I don't think Mockingjay sold one or the other for me though. I've always been a Peeta fan from book 1.

  8. Book Boyfriends! My favorite topic ever!!! Oh, my list is way too long. The more books I read the more I ensure that I get to have a new book boyfriend every week. :)

    I'm totally Team Peeta, though I think Gale is a cool dude. :)

    Have a safe and fun Spring Break.
