I don’t know about you, but I’ve never fallen for someone the way I have with fictional characters. Is that concerning and peculiar? Yeah, maybe so. Am I actually concerned? Nah.
I have no shame whatsoever. I’ve fallen in love. Deeply, deeply in love. Unfortunately, these boys don’t exist. And so today I am sharing with you all my top 5 fictional boyfriends, also known as the reasons I cry myself to sleep every night.
1. Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
Ah, first love. I remember the day I fell in love with Percy Jackson. It was a glorious day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and my 10 year old self had just finished the first chapter of The Lightning Thief. You could say he had me at
hello the first chapter. Fast forward and I am still rereading the series every single year which never fails to make me feel like I’m on top of the world.
2. Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)
Older, quiet, serious, dark, and kickass? Well, helloooooo there, handsome. I’ve actually been meaning to reread the series since I don’t remember much, but what I do remember is that he gave me a condition of severe swooning (his accent and long hair didn’t help my case).
3. Ian O’Shea (The Host)
The Host is one of my top favorite YA books, so it is no surprise a character made it on today’s list. I love you, Ian. For those of you who’ve read the book, you all understand Ian’s unconditional love for Wanda. Sure, he tried to kill her at first, but we’ve moved past that. He was just wow.
4. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)
I don’t understand why people prefer Gale over Peeta so much. Sure, in abilities, Peeta lacked many things Gale naturally had, but Peeta made up for it with his good-natured, warm heart. He was far too good for Katniss, honestly.
5. Rhysand (A Court of Thorns and Roses)
Alas, most recent addition to my fictional crushes: Rhysand! I won’t deny that he committed some horrible acts throughout the course of the first book, but he was deliciously wicked. I can’t wait to read more of him.
Who are YOUR top 5 fictional crushes? Tell me below!
