My Bookish Confessions is a new feature here at Such A Novel Idea. I started this weekly feature to reveal some of my secret quirks when it comes to all things books.
My Bookish Confession (8)
I’m in a relationship with a boy who doesn’t exist.
So, I have a confession… I’m in a relationship with a fictional character.
Here is just a short list of my most memorable relationships:
- Oliver hazard- Perry, Jack Force, and Kingsley Martin from the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz
- Jasper Hale, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black from the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
- Stark from the House of Night Series by P.C. and Kristin Cast
- Adam Wilde from If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Foreman
- Daniel Grigori and Cam Briel from the Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
- Augustus Walters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
- Christian Ozera, Dimitri Belikov, and Adrian Ivashkov from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
- Tobias Easton from the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
- …and my most recent relationship and currently in… Jace Wayland and Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
The thing about fictional boyfriends is that you can leave and return to them whenever you want because you know they will always be there waiting for your return. They never say anything negative or are mean to you and they care for you beyond imagination (well, within your imagination). They also can’t say anything back, so while you may be screaming at them for something that they did to upset you, they will sit quietly and take it all in.
But here is the thing: I love bad boys. Nine times out of ten, I am going to fall for the bad boy and will swoon in total adoration over him. However, I also fall for the bad boy who just happens to be the good guy (case in point: Jace Wayland and Adrian Ivashkov to name a few). They have all the aspects of the “bad boy” that instantly draw me to them, yet they are Good, so really there isn’t much to disapprove of. The thing that draws me to these characters are their personality because the majority of them are snarky and sarcastic and hilarious and clever with their word play as well as being rather intelligent.
I know that it isn’t really plausible and maybe it isn’t healthy, but I do adore my fictional boyfriends and the best part is that I can go back and visit them whenever I want without any awkwardness between the two of us. My FBs are there to comfort me when I am at my lowest or there to keep me company when I don’t feel like going out (which is never. I much rather curl up with my FB than go out). It never fails, I know that I can count on my fictional boyfriends more than I can count on the real one.
Plus, fictional boyfriends are just more fun!
Now your turn… Who are your fictional boyfriends?
So, that’s my eccentric quirk for the week. What’s YOUR bookish confession?
