We LOVE Wednesday- Literary Crush Style

The ladies over at YAHighway are taking a break from Road Trip Wednesday this week to offer some fabulous prizes! They are celebrating their one year blogiversary! Make sure to visit them!

So, I thought I'd throw my own question out there. Feel free to answer it on your blog or in the comments! If you post it on your blog, let me know and I'll link you in my post.

Who is your literary crush?

Can be fictional character, Author, Poet...anyone! (Or several if you're like me and can't choose just one.)

I could never choose just one, so here are the people I love and why (in no particular order):

  1. Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games, need I say more?
  2. JK Rowling- Yeah, Harry Potter, again- need I say more?
  3. David- From Aprilynne Pike's Wings and Spells- He is the sweetest, most adorable fictional boyfriend, like, ever.
  4. Peeta- Because he'll go to any end to save you should you ever wind up in, oh ya know -- a situation where everyone is out to kill you.
  5. Juliette Marillier- Have you read her Sevenwaters books? Run-now-read. (The first is the best, but the others are great as well.) The way she writes is just...amazing...I really don't know how else to put it. Her books wrap you in a spell and don't let go. Ever.
  6. Po- From Graceling- He's another really great good-guy love interest who would do anything to save you if you ever found yourself say -- being chased by a psycho king bent on controlling you with his words.

What about you?

Awesome post!!

I love, love, LOVE Juliette Marillier. My author-crush is probably Libba Bray... My autho-idol is Ursula K. Le Guin.

As for my character-crush, that's probably George from A ROOM WITH A VIEW... or maybe Jon Snow from the SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series... or maybe Captain Wentworth from PERSUASION... Too many handsome men to choose from!

J.K. Rowling, for sure. She's the reason I started writing.

Fictional crushes: I love Howl from HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE and Mairelon from MAIRELON THE MAGICIAN. Both of them are very similar where it counts -- both like to exasperate their love interest. I'm not quite sure what that says about me.
