Book List

February 14, 2017

Under normal circumstances, I would never share my book boyfriends. They may be fictional, but I would still prefer to keep them to myself, you know, just in case we ever come up with the science (or magic) to bring fictional characters to life. So what is it that has me risking my potential future happiness by giving you my sacred list? Well, it all started with a little “conversation” (see: the argument) between me and my Riveted pals. It’s basically been war of the book boyfriends since this all started, so I’m going to leave it to you guys. Check out my book boyfriends along with my reasons why they’re the best! Then let us all know what you think!

We’ll be sharing a book boyfriend list every day this week, so be sure to take to the comments to let us know who got it right!
