- Atticus Finch: Before I delve into Atticus Finch, I am talking about the version of him in To Kill a Mockingbird, NOT the older, racist Atticus of Go Set a Watchman. Atticus was handsome, smart, charismatic, and most importantly, a compassionate person. He believed in justice for all regardless of race. He even stood up for a black man living in Mississippi in the early 1930s! I mean, as a staunch supporter of social justice, this man had me crushin' since I was a teenager!
- Henry DeTamble: Something about Henry from A Time Traveler's Wife made me really intrigued and by the end of the book, I was really jealous of Clare. I mean, imagine meeting your husband as a child and having him show up in different times of your life when you need him most! He can be a bit unreliable at times, but that's mostly because he has a disease that makes him time travel so you kind of have to cut him some slack there. And he time travels to his daughter's future in the times after he dies to make sure she gets to know him and so that she isn't lonely! I think he's sweet and well-meaning despite his flaws.
- Spider: Ahh the son of Anansi the Spider from Anansi Boys. He appears to be a stark contrast to Charlie Nancy who is sort of a duffer. While I relate more to Charlie on some level (I'm really awkward too), I really love how you can tell Spider enjoys life and sees each day as a brilliant new gift. It's kind of how I want to live my life too! Also, who wouldn't want a half-god as a boyfriend?
- Tristran Thorn: The shopboy who becomes a King in Neil Gaiman's Stardust had to get a mention because who doesn't want a handsome self-made prince who goes on an adventure for the woman he loves? That kind of dedication deserves a chance at love. Tristran Thorn FTW!
