Book Characters I’ve Fallen in Love With

February 14th, 2010 by

They don't look too happy, but they're in love.  Trust me.

They don't look too happy, but they're in love. Trust me.

Karen and I will reveal our book character crushes on Tuesday’s romance-themed podcast, but I’ll go ahead and make a lovesick fool of myself right on Valentines’ Day. When I see these names in print, my heart goes a little a-flutter:

Gabriel, from Sixth Grade Secrets by Louis Sachar: Gabriel has a crush on Laura Sibbie. And even though he’d never admit it, his secret crush starts a war of secret clubs in the entire sixth grade class.

Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series: I have a soft spot for the goofy, awkward guys, and Ron is definitely goofy and awkward. And even though he puts his foot in his mouth quite a few times (those birds Hermione sent attacking were well-deserved), I just want to pinch his freckled cheek.

Almanzo Wilder from the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder: As you can tell by Laura’s last name, it worked out for them. 🙂

Mr. Darcy from the classic Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Even a dorky first name like “Fitzwilliam” doesn’t stop the ladies from swooning at the sight of this smoldering, brooding gentleman.

So those are my literary crushes. Leave a comment if you’re willing to reveal yours!

P.S. You’ll notice that Edward Cullen is intentionally not on this list. I’ll just leave it at that.

      Haha i also say thanks for not mentioning Edward Cullen, and i have a soft spot for Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I guess the reason i find him so lovable is thet i find myself to be like Annabeth Chase. But as far as book crushes go, your not the only one who gets them! 😉

    Well first of all I agree with you Katie but also I have another soft spot for Jason in Lost Hero too. Edward Cullen does not deserve To be mentioned either.
