Top Ten of 2012 - Top Ten Book Boyfriends

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?


  1. ZEKE Love him! He was a close call for me. Really love Vincent and Cas too!
    My Top 10

  2. I love Cas too and I just ordered The Immortal Rules and The Hunt. I'm looking forward to them even more now :)

    My Top Ten is here if you'd like a look :)

  3. Great picks! Looking forward to "meeting" Gene in The Hunt!

  4. GAH that Blood Fugue cover, ick I can't take it! The only one I know on this list is Cas and he would definitely be fun to have around at the end of the world as we know it! Great spin on the list!

  5. Sebastian from The Angel Creek series is one of my faves. Warner from Shatter me is also high on my list.

  6. Great List you have some great boys on here! I like your idea of boys of the apocalypse. I think I would rather have Jackal on my side then Zeke if the end of the world hit though lol!

    My Book Boyfriends of 2012

  7. OMG, why, why, WHY did I read this, when there are already SO MANY BOOKS on my to-be-read stack????? GAAAAAAAH! :-)
    Some Dark Romantic

  8. Great list! And yeah, Benny is pretty great, and he becomes even more great, although I still need to read the latest book, although I actually have a thing about his brother Tom, he's such an amazing character, he's actually one of my alltime fav characters!

  9. Ooooh, I like your take on this subject MUCH better than the BF version, because after all, a swoony BF isn't going to do you much good when zombies/vampires/other misc. monsters are hunting down your a**. This is a very well-rounded list, so I'm planning to stick with you in the pending apocalypse because you clearly know how to pick em!

  10. Haha, I like the idea of picking a reliable guy to have! I've only read Immortal Rules and Anna so I don't know the rest. But Cas and Zeke are pretty kick-ass! I'd want them on my team too.
