Hosted by Fiktshun, A Life Bound by Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Two Chicks on Books and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads the next five days are all about celebrating 2012 and looking forward to 2013. I had a blast doing this event last year and I'm so excited it's back again!
My take on this is probably a little different from the norm - I'm not one to gush about boys in books, so instead this is my list of the Top Ten Guys from 2012 that I want on my side in an apocalypse.
Jimmy from Blood Fugue by Joseph D'Lacey
Characterisation is something that is often lacking in horror books, but Jimmy was a great main character, and if there's freaky-arse vampires around, I want him on my team.
Bryan & Pookie from Nocturnal by Scott Sigler
Apart from their amazing monster-slaying skills, their banter is a must-have!
Vincent from Until I Die by Amy Plum
I know I said this was just about guys I want on my side in an apocalypse, but Vincent would also be a good distraction, especially with a bit of a French accent - oh lala!
Cian from Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater
Dude is one hot vampire! And as long as he didn't kill me, I think he'd be pretty useful!
Zeke from The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Ah such a good guy. OK, again this is one I just want because he'd be a good distraction.
Marcus from Partials by Dan Wells
Although he's not a stand out tough character, I liked his quiet strength.
Gene from The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
The guy can pretend for his whole life that he's a vampire and hide all the things that make him human, he's tough!
Cas from Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
Ghost hunter extraordinaire with an awesomely sarcastic sense of humour!
Benny from Rot & Ruin / Benny Imura series by Jonathan Maberry
Despite a rocky beginning with Benny, I grew to like him quite a lot, and he has a very strong sense of right and wrong. Plus he's quite funny - entertainment is a must in an apocalypse! (Yes I cheated a little with this one because I've only read the first book, but I was running out of choices!)
Who were your favourite book guys of 2012?
