Follow Friday

Hey guys! Man, it feels like it's been ages. I haven't been very up-to-date with my memes since school started, but I had a few free minutes so I thought I'd jump back in this week.

Who is your to-die-for book crush? What do you think they look like?

Hmmm. This is a tough one, seeing as every guy in every single series seems to be perfect in one way or another (or all of them). Seriously, it's crazy how high some books set the bar for males. Can I get some awkward, bumbling klutzes please? Please? Just so I can look graceful in comparison? *puppy dog pout*.

Anyway, spiel over. My to-die-for book crush is probably Derek from the Darkest Powers series, and I can feel you guys judging me, but I refuse to reconsider. He's one of the most real male characters I've ever read, and I love the fact that he is both physically and emotionally far from perfect.

And here's a picture of Nicholas Braun because he's the closest thing to my mental picture:

You're very welcome. Happy Friday!

  2. OOoh I loooved Derek too! Nice pic choice! I hate trying to find cover models or actors to represent my fave guys, none of the pics do my characters justice! So I took the easy route and picked a cover model I already liked!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  3. WHO WOULD JUDGE YOU? Derek is amazing! (Did you read Armstrong's Adult novels? One hero in particular reminded me of Derek.. A lot!)

  4. HEY I KNOW HIM! He was on 10 Things I Hate About You, right? I also don't prefer guys that are perfect, but the books I read don't really give me a choice. I do like emotional struggles though.

  5. Haha, I know what you mean. Some of those boys/men are way to perfect!

  6. That's the 2nd mention for Derek I've seen! =) He was my favorite in that series too. I'm a new GFC follower.

  7. Cute, though too young for me, lol. :P I understand what you say about some guys being too perfect though. The guy I picked is riddled with scars physically and is an overbearing man that thinks women are to be protected, even from themselves. Of course, he does exist in the 18th century, LOL!

  8. Hi, from a new follower!

    I feel so old, because he is waaaay too young for me! :D

  9. Yeah, it's sooo hard to pick just one.
    I like flawed heroes, so Derek sounds great to me :)

  11. wasn't much of a Derek fan myself when I read those books, he creeped me out a bit, but still felt sympathy for him.

    Here is mine, got a few of them
