My Literary Crushes - Guest Post by Alexa Hirsch



Sweet readers: Following is a guest post from Alexa, who is all kinds of amazing. You'll see.
Hello fellow readers!

While the lovely Leigh Ann takes a slight maternity leave I’m going to be doing a bit of guest blogging. I am one of Leigh Ann’s students at The Ohio State University and an extremely ridiculously voracious reader. Now being a “teenage girl” I obviously tend to have multiple crushes on a ridiculous amount of people, so I won’t go into all of them, but there are a choice few I’m going to share with you.








Peeta: I understand that every other sane person on this planet has this exact same crush, but besides Leigh Ann, I love him the most. I have never felt so much toward one fictional character, and it wasn’t about his looks!Whenever I think about Peeta I seriously swoon. His personality and just the things he says…. sigh, I’m head over heels. 


"Real or not real," you ask? Definitely real.







Elias: Oh Elias, those of you who follow this blog regularly, or randomly know that Leigh Ann wrote an incredible book called ONE with Elias in it. Elias is probably one of my all time dream guys; I just freak out thinking about him. His amazing music skills, his unbelievable fleck filled eyes and just him….. Woah I’m losing it here, but basically if you haven’t read ONE, you’ll get the pleasure soon enough I hope because Elias is worth reading about over and over again.







Jace: Now some people may not be as familiar with this but Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series honestly has one of the sexiest characters EVER. Jace Herondale, the mysterious moody shadow hunter is the epitome of yummy in these tales that go through self-discovery and some badass training scenes.









David: Gina, one of Leigh Ann’s incredible CP’s wrote the heart-wrenching Last Year’s Mistake, which included the Best Friend that everyone is rooting for you to be with because he is honestly perfect. At this point in my gushing I really just want to say that David is perfect in every way no matter what, and you should just love him for that.





Miles: Okay one of Leigh Ann’s other FABULOUS CP’s, Chessie, wrote Alexithymia and I honestly cannot tell you how much I loved this book. There are more than a million reasons, but one of the best ones is Miles, the sarcastic, yet amazing man candy. Miles is the world’s best guy and he deserves the world, and I basically feel like he’s in love with me…err Alex….anyways this book is a NECESSARY read.








Isn't she the GREATEST??? Leave Alexa your love and adoration in the comments, please, and guarantee she'll do more awesome guest posts!!!

    Okay. I see now. Alexa, you crack me up. (I think Miles would be pleasantly confused by being called "man candy".)

    (Also...Jace Herondale? Tiny spoiler there... >.<)

    1. Hahaha well I picture him that way, mostly because I freaking am in love with him, also was that a spoiler? SORRY I haven't read it in so long that I kind of forget what is spoiler and what isn't I APOLOGIZE!!!

    2. Haha it's totally fine, I guessed that twist as soon as the Inquisitor showed up in the second book. >.<

      (Also, I think this rewrite is making me love Miles more than I did before, which I didn't think was possible...)

  2. OHHHHH ALEXA!!! You called my David perfect. I so love you!

    And "man candy" will be in high rotation in my vocabulary from now on.

    Peeeetaaaaa!!! I can still tear up thinking about how he burned the loaves of bread knowing he'd get his ass beat just so Katniss could have something to eat. NOW THAT IS A MAN!

  3. I loooove Jace (and the entire The Mortal Instruments series). Definitely one of my literary crushes. Also Jem and Will from Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices series (check out that series, Alexa, if you haven't already!)

  4. Peeta and Jace, yes! Elias, David, and Miles sound awesome! Ohhh, literary crushes<33 I'm basically in love with Cole from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. He's such a broken, messed up jerk and yet...*swoon*

    1. I still haven't checked out The Wolves of Mercy Falls, I'll put it on my list! Thanks for reading! And if you can check out those other books once they get huge publishing deals :D So worth the wait

  5. Oh yeah. Miles is my current crush. I started Alex last night and dreamt about the boy ALL night. I'm also partial to Elias *fans self*.

    I think my other book-crush is Colin, from the book Torn. He's kind of upstanding and good, but still mysterious ;) And of course I imagine he's pretty hot too!

  6. You will LOVE Alex, and Elias is just indescribably epic. I've never heard of Torn, I'll have to look for that! Thanks for reading!

  7. Peeta takes the cake.

    Though it's not quite YA, I also crushed on Aragorn from LOTR as a teen. A bad-ass with a soul!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes Aragorn is so awesome!!!! He just basically kicks ass at everything

  9. I think you're right about the 'every other sane person' thing. :) How could you not have a crush on someone so sweet and devoted? (I was so worried about who would get cast for this, because I loved Peeta! Fortunately, they did a good job. ;) He's adorable.)

    1. I know, I was worried initially too, but I was really glad that he was able to do Peeta justice :) Thanks for reading!
