Steal My Heart On Valentine's Day

In honour of Valentine's Day today, I thought I would share my top 5 book crushes with you. These boys are super swoon-worthy and are totally after my own heart.

Owen - Just Listen
Owen is a dark and mysterious outsider with a crazy obsession with music. He is so sweet and honest. He believes in honesty above anything else, except music. I love his "placeholder" way of thinking and I want him to make me mixed CDs so I can listen to them all day long.

"silence is so freaking loud"

Adam - If I Stay + Where She Went

Adam is just so wounded. Heartbroken. Lost. Sad. I just want to wrap my arms around him and never let go. And oh how I fall for musicians! I want to wander the streets of NYC, discovering quirky little places together and for him to write me songs.

"You don't share me. You own me"

Jake - Saving June
Jake is annoying, sweet, opinionated, considerate, music obsessed and totally swoon-worthy. He may present the bad-boy image but he’s not all that he seems and I totally wish he would make ME a mixed CD.

“Everything on the radio is crap...It's fast food for your ears. It doesn't make you think. It isn't even about anything - not anything real. Don't you think music should say something?”

Cricket - Lola and the Boy Next Door
Quiet, Nerdy. Quirky. Oh so sweet and in love with the girl next door. *sigh*

“And if I'm the stars, Cricket Bell is entire galaxies.”

Dave - A Little Wanting Song
Dave is caring and loyal and he gets so nervous when he likes someone. He's so sweet but scared of being rejected. Little does he need to worry; he will never get rejected. If there are boys like Dave in country Australia, it doesn't matter that I'm a city girl, sign me up!

“People keep calling it an accident. That snake bit me on purpose. I've named it Sneaky. Sneaky had it all planned. I saw its face.”

Who are your favourite YA book boys?
