My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader. It was created to give us all a chance to gush and swoon over those amazing boys we fall for in our books. If you’d like to participate then click the link and grab the image.
I am swooney over Alex from Delirium! As I said before Alex puts me in the mind of Peter Pan. Playful and fun, and really easy-going. But he has so much passion for his old world and for life in general. He’s patient and kind, and extraordinarily selfless and brave.
- Invalid and Infiltrator
Kind and Patient
Security Guard at the Lab
Nineteen years old
Eyes of warm amber
Lena describes him like this:
A boy with caramel-colored skin and hair that’s a golden-brown color, like autumn leaves getting ready to fall. ~pg 58.
I notice the way a piece of hair curls around his scar, like a frame; I notice his large brown hands and the whiteness of his teeth and the perfect symmetry of his face.~pg 64.
But Alex doesn’t question me or laugh. He keeps watching me steadily. For a moment he seems on the verge of saying something. But then he just holds out his hand to me across the space, across the dark.
“Would you like to?” he says. His voice is hardly audible above the wind–so low it’s barely a whisper.
“Would I like to what?” My heart is roaring, rushing in my ears, and though there are still several inches between his hand and mine, there’s a zipping, humming energy that connects us, and from the heat flooding my body you would think we were pressed together, palm to palm, face to face.
“Dance,” he says, at the same time closing those last few inches and finding my hand pulling me closer, and at that second the song hits a high note and I confuse the two impressions, of his hand and the soaring, the lifting of the music.
We dance.~pg 145.
