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.
My Book Boyfriend is Ethan Wate
from The Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Why Ethan Wate is "My" Book Boyfriend:
I wouldn't say Ethan Wate would be my type at all. He is the quintessential good guy. I'm more of the type to love his nemisis, John Breed, the rogue bad boy, but there is something about Ethan that is so good and optimistic that I can't resist. I love this character and the latest installment in the Caster Chronicles, Beautiful Chaos. I think the reason I picked him was solely based on the fact that this would be the guy I would pick for my daughter. He is the kind of guy if you lived in the south in a good southern family, that you'd bring home to momma. I'm secretly hoping my daughter will and that he will bring some of Amma's famous fried chicken and pecan pies with him.
Some of my favorite Quotes:
“I was lost before I found her in my dreams, and she found me that day in the rain. I knew it seemed like I was always the one trying to save Lena, but the truth was she had saved me, and I wasn't ready for her to stop now.”
“She looked up at me, and the whole world disappeared. Like there was just us, like there would always be just us, and we didn't need magic for that. It was sort of happy and sad, all at the same time. I couldn't be around her without feeling things, without feeling everything.”
“Even though I couldn't remember all of it, the part I remembered was always the same.The girl was falling.I was falling.I had to hold on, but I couldn't.If I let go, something terrible would happen to her.But that's the thing.I couldn't let go.I couldn't lose her.It was like I was in love with her, even though I didn't know her.Kind of like love before first sight.Which seemed crazy because she was just a girl in a dream.I didn't know what she looked like.I had been having the dream for months, but in all that time I had never seen her face, or I couldn't remember it.All i knew was that I had the same sick feeling every time I lost her.She slipped through my fingers, and my stomach dropped right out of me-the way you feel when you're on a roller coaster and the car takes a big drop.I couldn't help it.I always thought about her.I kept coming back to that same dream, even though I couldn't exlain it.I was falling in love with a girl who didn't exist, and I was slowly losing my mind.”
