Top Ten Tuesday – 2/9/2016



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme of lists hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I decided to show my favorite book boyfriends some love with all of their swoony-ness. So, I give you my “Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Quotes from My Favorite Book Boyfriends.” A mouthful of a title, but let’s just roll with it.

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Quotes from My Favorite Book Boyfriends


1)  Dimitri Belikov from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

“No,” Dimitri interrupted gently. He moved his face toward mine, our foreheads nearly touching. “It won’t happen to you. You’re too strong. You’ll fight it, just like you did this time.”

“I only did because you were here.” He wrapped his arms around me, and I buried my face in his chest. “I can’t do it by myself,” I whispered.

“You can,” he said. There was a tremulous note in his voice. “You’re strong—you’re so, so strong. It’s why I love you.”

2) Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

“I thought perhaps that when you told me you did not love me that my own feelings would fall away and atrophy, but they have not. They have grown every day. I love you now more desperately, this moment, than I have ever loved you before, and in an hour I will love you more than that.”

3) Rowan from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

“I spent centuries wandering the world, from empires to kingdoms to wastelands, never settling, never stopping—not for one moment. I was always looking toward the horizon, always wondering what waited across the next ocean, over the next mountain. But I think … I think that whole time, all those centuries, I was just looking for you.”

4) Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

5) Dean Holder from Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

“But I’m not falling in love with her piece by piece anymore. I’m in love with the whole girl. Every single piece of her.”

6) Roth from The Dark Elements by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“I, Astaroth, Crown Prince of Hell, am in love with you, Layla Shaw. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. A hudred decades from now, I will still be in love with you, and it will be as fierce today as it will be a decade later.”

7) Warner from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

“I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head. I want to be that kind of friend,” he says. “The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body, Juliette-“

8) Miles Archer from Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

“Whoever coined the phrase, I love you to death obviously never experienced the kind of love Tate and I share. If that were the case, the phrase would be I love you to life. Because that’s exactly what Tate did. She loved me back to life.”

9) Noah Shaw from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

“I love you. Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever. If I were to live a thousand years, I would belong to you for all of them. If I were to live a thousand lives, I would want to make you mine in each one.”

10) Isaiah Walker from Crash Into You by Katie McGarry

“The way she curls in my arms makes me feel like I’m the hero. I like being her hero. I like the way her eyes shine at me, the way her body melts when I touch her, her soft lips on mine. I love her warmth and every curve. I love her.”

I could’ve added at least 10 more quotes from 10 more book bf’s but I’ll stop here. Do you have any favorite swoon-worthy quotes? I would love to know!
