My Book Boyfriend #20

Wednesday, June 15, 2011


My Book Boyfriend is hosted by the awesome blogger Missie at The Unread Reader.   What is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out Missie blog The Unread Reader.

Four from Divergent

He has a sparse upper lip and a fuller lower lip.  His eyes are so deep-set that his eyelashes touch the skin under his eyebrows, and they are dark blue, a dreaming sleeping waiting colour.


Four would have to be one of my favourite book boyfriends.  He is not the most gentle or sweetest guy but he is smart, fair, trustworthy and brave.  Oh and not to mention a bit of a dare devil.

He sinks to the floor and pulls me down with him, so he is sitting with his back against the wall and I'm facing him, my legs trailing to the side of the dusty floor.  The wind pushes strands of my hair loose and tosses them over my face.  He presses his palms to my face, his index fingers sliding behind my ears, and pulls my mouth to his.

"Peter would probably throw a party if I stopped breathing.'
'Well,' he says, 'I would only go if there was cake." 




"What do you want?" Then his face tightens  "Me?"
Slowly I nod.
He nods too, and takes my hand in his gently.  He guides my palms to his stomach.  His eyes lowered, he pushes my hands up, over his neck.  My palms tingle with the feel of his skin, smooth, warm.  My face is hot, but I shiver anyway. 

"I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though." 

Anybody else fall in love with Four at first read like I did?

Thanks to Missie again for hosting this awesome meme.

I still have not read Divergent. I think I may need to move it up in my TBR pile!

I think it's safe to say I'm pretty in love with him already:) I like that he has a sense of humor too, that's always a super attractive quality. Must read this book now! I've hear it's amazing, and I want more Four!

Small Review said...

Oooh, I'm bumping Divergent up the TBR!

Smash Attack! said...

Holy cow. I definitely fell in love with Four, big time. I'm thinking of doing Four next week. I am enjoying your pick for him!

bibliophile brouhaha said...

Oh damn. . . that's hotness right there. I have this waiting at the library for me, and uh, I think I need it. As in right now.

Sad to think that he might be a dirty frat boy if he was in our world, don't you think?

Missie said...

How do you do it? I'm convinced that you have a private stash of pictures just for all you book boyfriends! I love that tub shot. Perfect for Four. Can't wait to read the book myself to find out why they call him that.

Two Readers Reviews said...

Heck yes I fell in love with him! Four is definitely one of my top favorite book boyfriends EVER! Great post! :)

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

FOUR! I completely forgot you were posting this today!!! ahhhh! Of course I fell in love with him! I wanted to reread this as soon as I was done with it!

Question: Did you happen to mark in your book about the tattoos on Four's back? Lmk if you did because I would love for you to check something for me! :)

Dear Lord. I need to reread this ASAP. I forgot how hot those scenes were! *sigh* I love FOUR!!!! And you picked a great model. ;)

Jessi said...

Find me someone who read Divergent and didn't fall in love with Four! *swoon* I must find time to read this book again to spend some more time with him!

Alexa said...

Oh swoon, swoon ~ you do make my Wednesdays with these gorgeous quotes, fabulous pics and yummy guys. LOVED Four, btw did you guess his real name or were you surprised? I kind of want her to keep calling him Four :)

Alexa said...

Great post & yes, I fell in love with Four. What an AMAZING book! Loved, loved, loved it! :)

Audrey (holes In My brain) said...

BLOG REVAMP!!! I love it, it's clean and very pretty! =D
and Oh em geee... FOUR! I love that boy SO MUCH. SO SO MUCH. Also loved the way the romance was developed in that book, fab pick :)

Jenny N. said...

First I want to say that I love your new design. I'm probably one of the few who haven't read Divergent yet but I have heard of how awesome Four is.

Alex (A Girl, Books, OtherThings) said...

Oh! he sounds kind of cheeky, but I like that you say he's fair and trustworthy, I dig that in a guy!

Misha said...

Woa! Gorgeous guy :) I must read Divergent soon.
Btw, I think I am in love with your new design.

andrea said...

I LOVED Divergent. And I also fell in love with Four. My favorite parts would be when Tris thought that he was being mean to her by always telling her what she could do better, or right. To be more brave ;-) That really stood out to me because it was his way of saying that he truly cared for her. He wanted her to try harder so that she could survive in his world.

If you haven't read Divergent by Veronica Roth, I highly recommend it! You won't be disappointed!

Savannah said...

OMG! Four ! Love this guy! I loved reading Divergent! Such an awesome book!

A Canadian Girl said...

I love your new blog design.

Aw, that last quote always brings a smile to my face. I'm so glad you decided to choose Four. Lol, for once I know the book boyfriend.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I have been wanting this book for so long now. And here is another reason to want it more!!! Oh I need this book!

Rummanah Aasi said...

I have this book in my library tote bag. I just never got a chance to take a break and read it. I must correct that ASAP! Lovely pics and I can't wait to meet Four. :)

Wendy Darling said...

Nic, the photos you find just kill me! *fanning myself* Still have yet to read Divergent, but I must say, your book boyfriend sounds pretty cute!

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

I haven't read Divergent yet, but I'm in LUST. Great pick, Nic! :)

Sas (Tea Mouse) said...

I haven't read Divergent yet, but from those quotes, I think I'm in love with him already!

Great pose Nic!

Sas (Tea Mouse) said...

Ooops, *post

Jan von Harz said...

Due to an internet outage yesterday I missed this post and am certainly glad I checked it out. I love the photo of Four in the tub (where do you get these pics?) Four is gorgeous and subtle in his hotness and one many things I love about Divergent!

Azza said...

You pick THE perfect real life people for the characters. My jaw cant help but drop everytime I see your My Book Boyfriend posts.

Nomes said...

nic

i wish i had been imagining that boy as four the whole time i was reading it. hotness. and those looks are really intense. love it.

i think four and i got of to a bad start or something :/ i am going to read #2 and see if i can't use this book boyfriend post to stir something up a little :) LOVE the quote you included here

The Readventurer said...

You have major skills, Nic. When I was putting together your birthday-wall-o'-hot-guys, I knew to just look through all your book boyfriend posts. I have no idea which one is my favorite, and I also have no clue how you find all these hot guys that I've never heard of!

You should do a posting on how it is that you are aware of all these hot guys that are totally off my radar.

That is all.

omg, Four is so swoon-worthy! I like his toughness and honesty. :)

Jammie said...

I just bought Divergent like 2 days ago, for 6 dollars! I was so excited. I had been wanting to read it for ages. I started it last night and am already more than half way through. I love Four already :D Great post.

Katie said...
