My Book Boyfriend #1

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader. It is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out the My Book Boyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

So, I have finally decided to start reading Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead and because of that my first book boyfriend is:

Dimitri Belikov from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead


Status:  Dimitri is a dhampir of Russian origin. Taking the expected carrer path as a guardian Dimitri graduated and became a guardian to a Zeklos Lord. However, one day, whilst Dimitri was not on duty his Moroi was killied and Dimitri was left without a charge. He was then hired by the Academy and was part of the team that brought Rose and Lissa back to the Academy. He is Rose Hathaway's mentor and love interest.

Age: 24 

Height: 6´7´

Eyes: Brown

Hair: Light Brown 

More info: Dimitri is quiet and guarded, yet he strives over crontrol. He keeps mostly to himself. Dimitri enjoys reading old western novels and listening to 1980's music.

"He was older than us, maybe mid-twenties, and as tall as I'd figured, probably six-six or six-seven. And under different circumstances - say when he wasn't holding up our desperate escape - I would have thought he was hot. Shoulder-length brown hair, tied back in a short ponytail. Dark brown eyes. A long brown coar- a duster, I thought it was called."

"If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you."

"Did you see that dress?"
"I saw the dress."
"Did you like it? He didn't answer. I took that as a yes. "Am I going to endanger my reputation if I wear it to the dance?"
When he spoke, I could barely hear him.
"You'll endanger the school." I smiled and fell asleep.

"Wait until next time," he warned. "I'll do things that'll make you lose control within seconds."

Actor Ben Barnes

So, what do you think of Dimitri? Who is your Dimitri?


  1. I have not read the VA series but Ben Barnes is an excellent pick for any book boyfriend....

  10. I've been thinking for sometime who I'd pick for my Dimitri and I keep coming up with a blank. I think that is something I'm going to have to research extensively. However, if it's any consolation, I want to lick Ben Barnes and Dimitri, so this post is a total WIN! I love the VA series.


  11. I've always been stuck between picturing Dimitri as a Russian actor named Anton Markarskiy and Henry Cavill! But Ben Barnes is a great choice too! Especially the haircut! I loooove Dimitri! Great choice! :D I love that he loves 80's music!
