List Week: My Book Boyfriends, the Catch Up
Thursday July 5, 2012 at 12:00 am |


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.

This week I will list all the recent book guys who made my pulse quicken and my heart race.  I hate that I haven’t been able to participate and I do live for my book crushes.  So this post should catch me up on all the men I’ve fallen for.


Tom Imura from Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

“There are moments that define a person’s whole life. Moments in which everything they are and everything they may possibly become balance on a single decision. Life and death, hope and despair, victory and failure teeter precariously on the decision made at that moment. These are moments ungoverned by happenstance, untroubled by luck. These are the moments in which a person earns the right to live, or not.”

I LOVED Tom.  He was so understanding and compassionate.  He was brilliant at his profession, but unlike other Bounty Hunters, did not revel in killing zombies.  Tom helped the surviving families of the zombies by seeking out their undead loved ones and ending their misery, and bringing closure to the families.  He has a beautiful way of looking at the world, and he was something else with his blades.  I have got to have more of Tom!

Prince Po from Graceling by Kristin Cashore

“I know you don’t want this, Katsa. But I can’t help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I’m afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you’ll… oh, I don’t know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me,” he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. “I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.”

How AWESOME was Prince Po!?  Strong and beautiful and unbelievably kind!  Katsa is not a fragile girl, but he manages to pull out the vulnerability in her, and make her realize and discover things about herself she never did before.  Prince Po brought out the BEST in Katsa.  My heart broke for him in the end, but I think that they’re story was beautiful and ended realistically for the type of people they were.”

Prince Kai from Cinder by Marrisa Meyer

Since I listened to this one I have no quotes, but I did love Prince Kai.  He was intelligent and sensitive, and quite determined for someone so young.  I love that he was so dedicated and loyal to his father and his people.  His quest for a cure and a solution to the threat of the Lunar Queen made me want to root for him.  I’ll be interested to see how his journey continues in the next installment.

  1. Oh, I love that picture of Prince Kai! I still need to read that book.

    And I loved Po! He was so sweet, and so proud.

      Yes when I listened to it all I could think was that Rain from Ninja Assasin would be perfect for Prince Kai. And Po was the bees knees! Just really a beautiful person.

  2. I also love the picture for Prince Kai. He is one of my favorite male protagonist of all the 2012 debuts. Wasn’t the audiobook great !! Can’t wait for Scarlett !!!

  3. YAY!!!!! Prince Kai is so awesome!!!! Great choice 🙂


  4. You and your princes LOL — I just love them too, princely chivalry and all! x) And I especially love both of those princes! Po was so amazing and sweet and perfect and lovable. I hated what happened to him in the end, but loved how he dealt with it. It made me love him more. And Kai just rocked my socks off! <3

    I love all your picks for your book boyfriends, Jade! And since I love two of the three, I think that's a sign that I really need to meet the third one, right? We have such similar tastes in epic guys! 😉 <3

    • Jade Jade says:

      Aren’t the Princes the MOST!? Some can be real asses, but I’m happy that Kai and Po do not fall into that category. And I think you’d LOVE Tom Imura!

  5. O nice picks. I like the sound of Tom.

  6. I need to read Cinder. The book is here just collecting dust. Love that picture.

    • Jade says:

      Cinder was a great listen Alysia. I think that you would really get into it. And I like that the ending was kind of open ended for things to come.

  7. I’ve not read GRACELING, but I love your choices of Tom and Kai (and their fabulous pics)!
