Since I’m bisexual, I’m going to be talking about book boyfriends and book girlfriends today.
Allie Nelson from Nicholas Sparks’ The Notebook.
I didn’t like Noah (the male love interest) at all in this story because of how unwilling he was to respect Allie’s boundaries when they first met, but I thought she was a sweet and lovely person. She deserved a partner who listened to her the first time she spoke her mind.
Westley from William Goldman’s The Princess Bride.
Westley was so earnest and kind. I loved him from the very first time he appeared in this plot.
Henry and Clare from Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Travellers Wife.
I would have dated either of these characters in a heartbeat if they were real people! Clare’s artistic occupation would have given us a lot to talk about on dates. Henry seemed like the sort of person who would have tons of interesting stories on date night…assuming he didn’t zap back to a different timeline in the middle of it.

Good list. I like that you included Allie, even though I wasn’t a fan of her. I liked how you described her. Maybe I need to reread the book. I wasn’t fond of Noah, either. Lol. But that’s because of the reasons you mentioned.
I’m glad we agree there! And thanks.
Great answers…. I am not the biggest Sparks’ fan. He makes me cry and I don’t usually like crying. So, I avoid him…unless I want to cry… lol.
Thanks for stopping by!
You’re quite welcome.
LOVED Westley … what a good guy. RE: The Time Traveller’s Wife, I had the hardest time with that book. Confused the snot out of me, which is ironic because my current fave show on Hulu is the TV series Twelve Monkeys which is time travel at its most confusing and interesting and I’m SO FREAKING HOOKED. LOL…
Oh, that’s too funny! I found Twelve Monkeys so confusing I stopped watching it.
Aw, Westley! I love everything about him, definitely the best kind of hero.
Totally agreed there.
Love Westley! Great choice 😊
Thank you very much.
I could have a crush on Buttercup. Robin Wright too. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2019/12/writer-friends.html
Yep Westley! Best kind of hero. Thanks for sharing. Here’s mine. https://www.tenastetler.com/blog-challenge-book-boyfriend-or-girlfriend/
Totally agreed there. And thanks for sharing the link to your post.
Oh, fun choices! I didn’t really do one this week, partly because I don’t normally think of book characters that way, but mostly because I’m kind of overwhelmed.
That makes a lot of sense. I almost didn’t participate either as I don’t normally think about book characters that way either.
I hope we’ll see you again next week!
Westley! He was too good for Buttercup. But Robin Wright was incredible in Wonder Woman and Blade Runner so all if forgiven.
Didn’t read The Notebook or Time Traveller’s Wife, but I can agree with you in regards to Westley. He had to be a strong character to handle the weight of all of Buttercup’s expectations 🙂
I did like The Time Traveler’s Wife. I’m not sure I could have lived with Henry popping off all the time though.
I hear you there. That would have made it hard to plan anything.
