Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

Let’s dish about our literary crushes!

These are some amazing male characters!


1. The Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

When I think of a swoon-worthy male character, the first one who comes to mind is Dexter. I could also list several other male characters in Sarah Dessen’s books, but I decided to pick my favorite. This book will make you swoon!

2. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Whether you are Team Jeremiah or Team Conrad, this book is certainly swoon-worthy. I adore these two boys, and my students enjoyed fighting over these boys.

3. Just One Day by Gayle Forman

Willem. He is smart and sexy. And he takes Allyson on the adventure of her life in a new country. We love Willem.

4. Fire by Kristin Cashore

After I read this book, I wanted to name my son Brigan. It was too bad it sounded terrible with my last name (Ginsberg). He is an incredible male character who I admire.

5. In This Moment by Wendy Glenn

I read this book on Not only will this book make you swoon, but it will make you ponder life. I definitely recommend it.


1. Graceling and Fire by Kristin Cashore

Po and Brigan from these novels are probably two of my favorite love interests in any book. They are such amazing men who compliment there extremely strong female protagonists.

2. Divergent series by Veronica Roth

Tobias (Four) from the Divergent series grew on me–I liked him even more in Insurgent (a little less at the beginning of Allegiant) and then so much by the end of Allegiant. He is a good man.

3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This one may have made my list because I just read Fangirl, but I loved the boyfriend that Levi was to Cath in Fangirl. Also, I love that he was flawed physically yet exactly what Cath needed.

4. Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes

Z is one of those bad boys who you know has a deeper story. Throughout the book you get to know him more and what you learn makes him even badder and even more intriguing.

5. The Fault in our Stars by John Green

What Gus does in this book for Hazel makes him my favorite male character in any book ever.

Which books have made your heart flutter?

  1. Wow, some terrific guys here. I haven’t read many of these you’ve shared, but I agree that Gus is one of the best! Recently, I think I would add the boy, growing into such a lovely young man, from far, far away, Jeremy.
