Who are your literature heart throbs?

Summer Break Reading Challenge Activity #6:

If I could live in a book which one would it be? I'm going to make that decision by the men I've fallen in love with between the pages of the books. Here are my literature heart throbs.

My first love is Rudy Steiner from THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak. He made me laugh, cry and rejoice that I was alive. Plus he was Liesel's best friend (a best friend any girl would want) and supporter. I wish more men were like him.

My second love is Paris from TROY by Adele Geras. Alas, the good-looking Greek who helped start the Trojan war. I love Greek history and mythology and Paris is one of my favorites.

My third love is Percy Jackson from THE LIGHTNING THIEF by Rick Riordan. I love his youthful, innocent way of saving the world. Plus I love that he is a demi-god who is powerful but yet struggles to read and frequently gets expelled from school. He is a boy every mother could love!

Lastly, I feel the need to announce that I prefer Jacob over Edward from the TWILIGHT series. I am definitely a sucker for the underdog. Plus Jacob just seems a lot more fun than Edward. I want a man who can lead me to adventure and not constantly coddle me to keep me safe.

There you have it, my secret loves, hidden between the pages of a book.


  1. Ah, Rudy. I chose Papa from The Book Thief in mine. But, Rudy is so tragically adorable. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Rudy is adorable. Excellent choice!

  3. Paris is a really good choice!

  4. Ha! I love that you love Percy Jackson. His books are pretty fantastic.
