Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday. This is a meme started in November of 2013 and is still going strong! If you’re interested in being a part of it please see the group on Goodreads.
This week’s topic is Nostalgic Book Boyfriends
In other words, book boyfriends I had when I was a kid.
Christopher Robin – Winnie the Pooh
He was my first book boyfriend. Maybe it was the accent. Maybe it was the crowd he hung out with. I mean Pooh and I were already good friends, so it only made sense for me to be into his bestie. MFEO Christopher. You complete me!
Sherlock Holmes – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
This would be a bad boyfriend IRL. I mean could you pick a worse guy to be with? Apparently not. Sherlock has been my bad book boyfriend for more years than I could count. We’ve been seeing each other since I was a teenager, but this relationship is going nowhere. I just can’t quit him.
Alec Ramsey – The Black Stallion
I have to come clean here. My 10 year old self really wasn’t as much into Alec Ramsey as I was into the Black Stallion. I was horse crazy. I read ALL the books and I didn’t so much like Alec as I wanted to be Alec.
Dickon Sowerby – The Secret Garden
What’s better than an English accent? A northern English accent. Plus the kid is good with plants and animals. He’s a sweet boy and oh he’s just adorable. No shame here. Dickon is wonderful.
Han Solo – Star Wars
I don’t really need to explain this one do I? The heart wants what it wants.
Well that was quick and fun. I’m going to leave you with a clip from the Broadway Production of The Secret Garden Musical, mostly because Dickon is in it, and it’s lovely. Enjoy!
