…And here is where my inner love for every fiction male-hero comes out.
Peeta, Percy, Ron, Jacob, Gale, Jace, Augutus, Darcy, Daniel, Sherlock and Noah…you’re up.
1. Boys in books are drop-dead gorgeous
Let’s be serious now. Which book have you read when the main male character isn’t already in-built and equipped with every single feature your ‘perfect guy’ possesses? I mean, come on. I don’t mean to be shallow, but who isn’t a sucker for a cute boy? Don’t tell me you wouldn’t fall for him. DON’T YOU LIE TO ME.
2. Boys in books are hella romantic
Let’s face it. Boys in books know just what to say, when to say it and how. They know and love who you are, flaws and all, and still want you forever. They don’t lie, cheat or hurt you. And their sappy cheesy sarcastic romance is the thing real boys should be made of (but aren’t).
3. Boys in books don’t change…unless it’s for you
Another thing that we fall in love with is that the boy in the book may not be perfect. He may be selfish, arrogant or downright rude, but he is always ready to change for the girl. What hopeless romantic doesn’t want that? Which teenage girl doesn’t want a bad boy who’s good only for her?
4. Boys in books are always there for you
They’re always there, whatever, wherever, whenever. Even when real boys aren’t. They’re there when you need a break from real life.
5. There are no messy heartbreaks
Boys in books are incapable of breaking up with you or breaking your heart. Unless of course they die. Then, yes, you’re allowed to ball like a a baby for days.
6. They look at you the way every girl wants to be looked at
Need I say more?
7. You don’t need to dress up for them
Forget about the hours you spend on hair and makeup before you see a guy. Guys in books don’t care. You don’t need to impress them. They love you anyway.
8. There’s always a happy-ever-after
And in books, forever actually means forever. When a book ends, you know those two are going to be together forever, no matter what. The author doesn’t need to say it. You just know.
So, in the fervent hopes that I haven’t made you single for life, I just want to remind you, that in the name of all boys in books…
Deliya x 🙂
