Day 4: Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2014

Day 4 of 5

Welcome to Day Four of the 'Top of 2014' event hosted by Two Chicks on BooksFiktshunMagical Urban Fantasy Reads and Tales of a Ravenous Reader.

Today's topic is...

Best Book Boyfriends of 2014 

Rule #1  - Book BF must be from a book released in 2014. 

Rule #2 - Book BF must be from a book I've read in 2014.

Well this sucks because most of my book boyfriends are from earlier books! The rule is that the book boyfriend “must be from a book released in 2014 and from a book I have read in 2014.” (although it would be virtually impossible for me not to have read a book in 2014 if it was released in 2014. Unless I stole the manuscript from the author’s home sometime in 2013, before it was published, or time travelled to the future, read the book and returned to write this post...)

I digress, my point is that I think I found a loophole for this post. If I read a book released in 2014 that is part of a series, then I could potentially use one of the older book guys, right? Less waffling, Zed...

Here are my ten favourites in no particular order, and a few honorable mentions I couldn't resist!

1. Captain Thorne 
~ Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
Thorne is hilarious, I loved him in Scarlet, and he’s even funnier in Cress. He’s on my list purely because he made me laugh oh so much.

2.   Tobias Eaton aka Four 
~ Veronica Roth
(Thank you for releasing Allegiant this year otherwise I do not know how I would have snuck him on my list!)

3, 4 & 5. The Academy Boys 
~ C.L.Stone’s Ghostbird series. 
This series is about nine boys falling in love with one girl. Sounds kinda weird and almost incestuous considering that they refer to their group of boys as a family, but it’s anything but. A funny, lifting series, all the boys are amazing but since I need to pick a few to be the boyfriends I will go with:
Gabriel, Owen Blackbourne and Dr Green (that’s 3 of my 10 done!)

6.   Jace ...lost count of surnames
~ The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. 
City of Heavenly Fire was released in 2014, so he makes the cut! Yay! Although Jace annoyed me a hell of a lot in some of the books, he’s still pretty awesome :P

7.   Brian Oliver 
~ (aka Cinder) from Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram
I like his chemistry with Ella when he is Cinder, and how they fall in love without meeting. A leeetle ancient romance in this techy world doesn’t go amiss.
8.   BELLAMY!!! *sigh*
If I need to tell you who Bellamy is, you should bow your head in shame for not watching the 100, or reading the books by Kass Morgan.
In the books, he is sweeter than in the tv show but personally I prefer the tough attitude on the show. Bellamy and Clarke are so cute for each other, and the show hasn’t explored their potential feelings yet, but now that Finn is out of the picture (sorry guys, belated spoiler alert) perhaps we’ll see more of Bellamy-Clarke. Hopefully, he’ll wash his face now and again though.

9.   Akiva 
~ Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
Come on, he’s facing the wrath of the angels to help the girl he loves, what more could a girl want?

10.   Mason 
~ Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
Mason appears like the bad guy, being the kidnapper and all, but as the story progresses, his inner charm comes out, or it might be the signs of Stockholm syndrome!

Since I can’t actually add these book boyfriends to my official list, I felt the need to give them an honorary mention. Unfortunately, they are all pre-2014, which is why I wasn’t able to add them above:

·         Damon Salvatore from the Vampire Diaries series by L.J. Smith
·         Adrian from Richelle Mead’s series
·         Prince Ash from Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series


  1. Great list! I love Thorne, and I loved Four in Divergent!

    1. Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing more of Thorne in the next Marissa Meyer book. It's a shame we won't see any more of Four though.

  2. Jace!!!! How could I forget about him!? I loved Jace (and Simon) in CoHF.
    Thorne and Four are awesome, too!
    Great list!

  3. I loved Four in Divergent <3 I haven't read the rest of the books you've featured but they look pretty good :)

  4. Akiva and Mason! <3 Love them! Excellent list, Zed!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy holidays :)

  5. I just love Akiva! I still need to read Dreams of Gods & Monsters but I've been putting it off because I don't want the series to end D= Great list!

    Emily @ Falling For YA

    1. It's a horrible feeling when a series ends, isn't it? Hopefully, Laini Taylor will bring more awesome books to us soon.

  6. I love Bellamy! I'm really hoping he gets with Clarke on the show. The actor that plays Four is so hot! I have only read Divergent but need to finish the series.
