Book Boyfriend: Emmett Cullen

We decided that Thursday needed a little pizazz and stumbled on this meme while hanging out at one of our favorite blogs, A Book and a Cupcake. So we took ourselves over to The Unread Reader to see what it was all about and join the fun. The Unread Reader features this meme on Wednesdays, but we figured moving our participation to Thursday wouldn't hurt anything. We'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you participate in this so we can check out your book boyfriends as well. 

Since this is our first one I had to go back to the man who caught me eye when I first returned to reading the YA genre. For those of you who know me well - you probably already knew he was going to be first.

My book boyfriend of the week is Emmett Cullen.
My ideal Emmett is Kellan Lutz or Daniel Cudmore.

Books he's In:

New Moon
Breaking Dawn
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
Written by: Stephenie Meyer


* 6'5", the tallest Cullen
* Very Handsome
* Dimples
* Slightly Curly Dark Brown Hair
* Golden Topaz Eyes OR Coal Black Eyes - depending on his appetite

* Pearly White Teeth
* Built Like a Tree - broad and stout
* "The big dark haired guy" ~ Jessica Stanley

Some Emmett Facts:

* Born Emmett Dale McCarthy in Gatlinburg, TN in 1915
* Mauled by a black bear in 1935
* One of the youngest vampires in the Olympic Coven
* Awesome sense of humor

Quotes about Emmett:

"With the dark curls... the dimples that showed even while he was grimacing in pain... the strange innocence that seemed so out of place on a grown man's face" ~ Rosalie

"Grizzly is Emmett's favorite." ~ Edward

"If you've ever seen a bear attack on television, you should be able to visualize Emmett hunting." ~ Edward

"Emmett hits the hardest, but Edward runs the fastest." ~ Esme

Why he's my book boyfriend:

I love that Emmett is such a fun, lovable, loyal character. He would do anything for those he loves and he wants to protect everyone all the time. I also love the sarcastic jock types; they have always been my weakness. I wish that there had been more of Emmett in the books and the movies. Also, I love that Emmett has roots in the South like me. 

Who would be my perfect Emmett?

I will be honest - I always pictured Daniel Cudmore when I was reading the books. When the cast was announced I thought Kellan Lutz was too small to be able to pull it off, but after seeing the movies I don't think Emmett could ever be anyone but him for me now.


  1. Ah, Emmett, he is just the cutest grizzly ever! I love his sense of humor and loyalty. And I really missed his curls in the movie version of him, though Kellen is super Hawt!

    Thanks for offering Daniel Cudmore as an alternative. Yummy!

    Glad to see you joining in on MBB, no matter the day. :D

  2. Aw, Emmett! Sometimes you forget about him 'cause he's in the ackround, but he's a great character. And I like Kellan Lutz as him, I think he fits Emmett. Nice pick for this week. :)

  3. Sigh, I love this meme.... Great choice! Daniel would have looked great as Emmett too!
    Truly Bookish

  4. Very nice pick, Andrea. I am not surprised at all. :-)

  5. Great choice! I love Emmett!

  6. Emmett was definitely my favorite Cullen.

  7. Oh my goodness, I'm shocked! I'm absolutely shocked that you chose Emmett! ;)

    Great first choice. Emmett is definitely my second favorite Cullen.

  8. @Missie - Thanks for putting together such a fun meme. We are so excited to be a part of it.

    I am so glad everyone who stopped by also enjoyed the meme and Emmett. Just remember - he is my book boyfriend so you can't have him! Well, at least not this week. :)

  9. I loved Emmett in the Twilight books, he was always good for a laugh. And he's not too hard on the eyes in the movies either, great choice!

  10. I hate Twilight x_x' But when I read the books, Emmett was my favorite XD

  11. Love Emmett! Loved the way he teased Bella. You knew he was good people... er... vampire. ;) Love those arms. :)

  12. @-petit: I can totally respect not liking Twilight. I loved the books and then felt like the movies ruined them. My interest in them has waned and I have moved on. However, I know a ton of people who just didn't like them at all. I am glad to hear you liked Emmett though. :)

    @Melissa - I also loved Emmett's teasing ways and his arms. :)

  13. Great pick! Emmett is one of the more loveable and fun characters in twilight :)
