Summer Break Reading Challenge Activity #6

The assignment for the Summer Break Reading Challenge today is to answer the ever important question: Who are your literature heart throbs?

Marcus Flutie
A major character in Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling Series (Sloppy First, Second Helpings etc.) he is equal parts bad boy and soulful writer. In the FAQ on her website McCafferty said he is "the fantasy I hoped the real life guys would turn out to be–but didn’t. So in a way, I’m living through Jessica, just like you are." Yeah I have a big fat literary crush on him.

Alex Cross
A crime-fighting detective and super dad who loves his grandmother and still mourns the death of his wife. Yeah James Patterson nailed this man. I prefer not to picture Alex Cross as Morgan Freeman who played him in Along Came a Spider. I prefer the image in my head.

Damon Salvatore
What can I say, I am not immune to the vampires, I just prefer mine a little more badass than Edward. Damon from the Vampire Diaries is definitely my favorite vampire and Ian Somerhalder only made me love him more.

Of course I also love Harry Potter and I am firmly on team Jacob but I thought a lot of people would pick them so I tried to think a little outside the box. Apparently I like my fictional men a little on the brooding side. Who are your fictional crushes?

I've never read any of these characters, but I'm with you on the badass thing--Edward just doesn't do it for me!

Ohmylord, I have really embarassing fictional crushes. Ron Weasley for instance. Inexplicable!
I just recently stumbled on your blog and I'm glad I did! You do good work!
