Blogoversary Day 3: Favorite Male Characters

Welcome to Day 3 of my blogvesary celebration! To celebrate, I've come up with a list some of my favorite male characters (in no particular order). Again, I have the giveaway below, so be sure to check it out! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hector from The Crown of Embers
Hopefully this won't be too big of a spoiler, but I LOVE Hector. I'd wear an I <3 Hector shirt any day of the week. I didn't think that I've ever met a character with such a perfect mix of stoicism, passion, and loyalty. He's like the perfect guy. 

Peeta from The Hunger Games
Who doesn't love Peeta? I mean, sure, I liked Gale, but Peeta stole my heart. He's kind in a way few guys are. He's a gentleman in every sense of the word, with a smile and sense of ease that could melt any girl's heart. 

Chaol from Throne of Glass
Perhaps a little more "rough around the edges", but what can I say? I like captain-of-the-guard characters. They're strong and mysterious. So yeah, I love Chaol, his tough exterior, fierce loyalty, and quiet admiration for Celaena. 

Tucker from Unearthly

Cowboy. What else do I have to say? I didn't like Tucker at first, but once his defenses were down, I fell for him. Hard. Too bad he only has eyes for Clara. ;) 

Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss

Something about foreign names and foreign accents (especially a British accent) makes me swoon. I know I'm not the only one who adores Etienne, faults and all. I appreciate the fact that he isn't perfect, though, and I appreciate the fact that he faces his shortcomings (no pun intended). 
Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door
Cricket isn't swoon-worthy in the typical sense. I never got a sense that he was that "hot", but somehow, his personality shined through. He's sensitive and quirky, with a good sense of humor. I like that in a guy, and I liked how REAL he felt. He's definitely "the boy next door" kind of guy, and I love him for that.

Four from Divergent
Four is incredibly brooding and mysterious. He's the type of guy that I'd probably admire from a distance, but wouldn't make the first move. Admiring Four from a distance is just fine by me. 
Daniel from Something Strange and Deadly 
Sure, Daniel is a little cranky, a little frustrating, and a little moody. But I like him. He's intelligent, loyal, and even a little mysterious. I feel hard for him while reading Something Strange and Deadly.

Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars
What can I say about Gus? He's just perfect. Funny, intelligent, wise, and so brave. The Fault in Our Stars was just as much his story was it was Hazel's. I cried and I laughed with Augustus, through all his ups and downs. 

Kenji from Shatter Me/Unravel Me 
Kenji is far from perfect. He's obnoxious, conceited, and has a tendency to rub some people the wrong way. But underneath that fun-loving, humorous exterior is a guy who is able to prioritize. He's strong, dedicated, and isn't afraid to be honest. He's able to put Juliette in her place, when she kept moping about Adam. I admire him so much for that.

  1. I totally agree with your men! I love, like, pretty much all of them. HECTORRRRRR!!!

  2. So many of the guys on this list are perfect! Etienne, Cricket, Four, Peeta?! Who wouldn't fall hard for these guys?!?! Two other of my favorites are Kartik in the Gemma Doyle books and Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices trilogy :)
    I haven't read any of the other books on this list, but I think I will now that I know there are some top notch boys in them. :p
