*clears throat* BOOK BOYFRIENDS.
Probably my favorite post in Two Chicks On Books, Fiktshun, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and Tales of a Ravenous Reader‘s annual TOP 10 OF 2015 week-long meme. B/c book boy-crazy, I am. I only wish I wasn’t limited to books from 2015 (b/c BARRONS). Oh well. Options, I haz ’em.
|10. Waking Hearts by Elizabeth Hunter
I can’t say I’ve shifted (HA!) my preference from werewolves to werebears, but Ollie gives them all (except Clayton Danvers) some stiff competition. ~My Review
|09. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
He has a name, but you don’t find out what it is until you’re well in the book, so I’m not telling. *shrugs* Doesn’t really matter, b/c HAWT. Broody and taciturn, just like I like them. ~My Review
|08. Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews
YES. I’m serious. I also like sympathetic (maybe not) villains. ~My Review
|07. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
He’s hot. And broody. And hot. And damaged. I’m not sure Celaena deserves him, but he’s definitely my favorite. ~My Review
|06. Alice by Christina Henry
If you haven’t already noticed (*snickers*), I have a thing for . . . scary dudes. Lots of different varieties, but all of them, when stripped to their foundations, are guys you probably wouldn’t want to take home to mom. Not that that would stop you from having your way with them, but, yeah, mom would not be thrilled. Hatcher is more straight forward than most, but in-your-face or more subtle, it matters not. I love ’em. ~My Review
|05. Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs
Bran Cornick. That is all.
|04. Forsaken By Kelley Armstrong
Clay has only recently been bumped from the #1 spot (which he held for years), but I think that has more to do with lack of proximity. If we were still getting yearly full installments of Otherworld, he’d probably still be the werewolf of my heart. His loyalty and badassery slays me every time.
|03. Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews
As much as I hate seeing what he’s been forced to become, I’m also attracted to it. *shrugs* ~My Review
|02. Tower of Thorns by Juliet Marillier
There’s no explaining this one. You have to experience it for yourself. ~My Review
|01. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo”
Kaz ripped a dude’s eye out of his head b/c Dude wouldn’t give him the information he needed. And it was crazy hot. #sorrynotsorry ~My Review
Who are your book boyfriends?
Kaz is also in my list because KAAAAAAAAAAAAZ!! How could he not!!!

I have not read any of the Otherworld books this year, so I couldn’t put Clay on my list. I really need to get caught up. I love that series so much. I just finished Sweep in Peace this morning, so I didn’t have George on my list, but could’ve. I should’ve put Charles on mine and I completely missed him. *pouts*

Don’t know any of your boyfriends. 🙂
OOO. Some great choices. I could go for Ollie or BRAN CORMACK!!! George would make sense too. I have to say I am crushing on Leo (Faith Hunter) so I get your scary guys are attractive, even villains sometimes. I cringe when I think of it but it’s happening. Anne
Wow, I never saw that. Roland from the Kate Daniels series. I need to check out Elizabeth Hunter. That looks good and I do enjoy werebears. Ah I do love Bran Cornick. George Drayton, it’s sad to see what has become of him and the other’s.
Very nice picks. Interesting and fun.

Roarke by JD Robb, en Jean-Claude by Laurell K. Hamilton.
Yes for Kaz and Dragon! My top two this year! I liked that Kaz was evil too haha! And Dragon was grumpy, but they were both great!

KAZ! Fantastic choice – I have him on my list as well! And I definitely need to meet this Dragon guy from Uprooted. SOON. 😀 Lovely choices. 🙂

ROWAN <3 Heck yes. Fabulous taste in men, if I do say so myself 😉
OMG swoon love your book boyfriends! Yassssss Dragon!!!! They’re all such great picks though! Thanks so much for taking part in the Top 10 of 2015! Looking forward to seeing the last of your Top 10’s tomorrow 😀
Jaime @ Two Chicks On Books
So many awesome picks! I love Bran as well. I’m so excited to eventually read Uprooted! I think I’m going to have to get that one after the Holidays.

I like Roland too 😉

GRIM! I actually just read and reviewed Tower of Thorns and Grim stole the show. He’s such a frigging sweetheart, man. But as much as I’d love him as a book bf, his heart seems to be with a certain wise woman. 😉 I was also a big fan of, uh, the dragon from Uprooted. There were some pretty steamy moments in there for a YA novel!

I’m noticing a trend here….and I like it.
Yeessss to Bran!! And Clay! Roland??? Um, I’m not caught up (recently read #6) but… I’ve not met any of the others but you know I’m gonna! 😉
