Tag Tuesday: Top 10 (Bookish) Fictional Crushes!

Today’s topic may or may not reveal certain truths about me that I’m not ready to face. Luckily for me and my pride, today we’re only talking about my fictional crushes from books! Any further than that and this post becomes a whole new monster entirely. Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Will Herondale and Jem Carstairs

Let’s just get the ults out of the way first. Yes, I am well-known William Herondale trash and I also love Jem Carstairs with my whole heart and soul. Y’all are lucky I haven’t read The Last Hours yet or else I have a sneaking suspicion a certain James character would have snuck his way onto the list as well.

Selwyn Kane

This year has been the year of Selwyn Kane and I’m not even that ashamed. I mean, he’s snarky and rude but always so very sweet and vulnerable underneath his arrogant facade. I don’t want to jump to conclusions but I’d probably marry him.

Nikolai Lantsov and Kaz Brekker

…okay. Nikolai is absolutely hilarious and no one can deny that! I can’t help it! But Kaz. Yes, I mean, he’s greedy and a murderer and quite scary. He’s also protective and loyal and he just needs love okay asdfghjkl.

Percy Jackson

Obviously, I wouldn’t tear him apart from Annabeth. But Percy was honestly my first bookish crush. He’s sweet, loyal, hilarious, blah blah blah. He’s Percy Jackson. There are no explanations needed.

Richard Gansey III

Gosh, this is so incredibly embarrassing. What kind of person falls in love with Richard Gansey III? Besides me. And Blue. Hey, maybe that’s why I got Blue in that personality quiz I took that one time. I love him and his passion.

Maxon Schreave

Read Maxon’s quotes and weep, you cowards. His main personality trait was being romantic and I mean what else do you need when you melt hearts faster than a hot car melts chocolate.

Captain Carswell Thorne

ALL I WANT TO DO IS REREAD THE LUNAR CHRONICLES NOW. Gosh dang. Captain Carswell Thorne is the bookish Flynn Ryder and that’s all you need to know.


Jacks is…a sort of spoilery character but just uh don’t judge me. It’s not my fault he’s basically royalty in the heart department.

That’s it! Thank goodness we didn’t go farther than books or else that’d be a big rip for me and my typing abilities. Tell me what one of your fictional crushes are!

  1. I do love a good book crush!! I will also consider this post a reminder to read the infernal devices and legendborn. Both are on my shelf so I have no excuse really. Nikolai really is the basic book boyfriend that you kinda fall in love with immediately. 🤣
