It’s Valentine’s Day today where I live. I feel the romance in the air. What better way to celebrate romantic relationships by talking about (book) boyfriends?
As a fangirl, I get emotionally attached to characters that don’t exist in real life. I’d like to think I don’t have a lot of book boyfriends, but realistically, the list is endless. Book boyfriends shouldn’t be mistaken for OTPs (one true pairings), but they could be part of one.

I also made a post about my favorite OTPs, and you can click here to check it out.

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
Dorian is super caring to all his friends. He seems like the type of person who’s super supportive and also knows how to have a good time.
The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan
I really value a person with a good sense of humor. Leo Valdez is definitely one of them. Ever since I read the Heroes of Olympus series, I’ve had a slight crush on him. He’s what keeps the demigod squad together. He’s hardworking, but never caves under pressure.
Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo
He’s not a Heartrender, but he’s certainly a heartBREKKER! AHAHAHA ok I’ll stop.
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
He’s the type of boyfriend that makes weird remarks but never fails to make you laugh or have a good time. When you’re having a bad day, without a doubt he will make you smile. Too bad he’s already taken.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Levi would definitely be someone I would love to have as a boyfriend. He’s super sweet, loyal, and funny. (I guess by now you can tell I like funny people to make up for the lack of funny jokes I can make. All I can make is cringe-worthy puns.) He’s the one you would want to cuddle up with during the winter and just watch a movie together.
The Wrath & The Dawn series by Renee Ahdieh
Sure, Khalid has some angst. Heck, the first book was pretty angst-y if you ask me. However, there’s something mysterious about him that intrigues me. It’s kind of like one of those situations where you see a sharp, shiny object. You know you shouldn’t touch it, but you can’t help yourself because it’s so beautiful.
Until next time….
