My Book Boyfriend

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.

This week my book boyfriend is:

Étienne St Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


Status: Étienne is an American boy, with an English accent and French name. He's extremely cute and a little insecure. He's Anna's friend and love interest.

Age: 17


Eyes: Brown

Hair: Dark Brown

More info: Étienne loves History, wears a funny hat, loves his mother and is sweet and funny.

"The first thing I notice is his hair - it's the firs thing I notice about everyone. It's dark brown and messy and somehow both long and short at the same time. I think of the Beatles, since I've just seen them in Meredith's room. It's artist hair. Musician hair. I-pretend-I-don't-care-but-I-really-do-hair. Beautiful hair"

"His eyes lock on mine. "Anna, I promise I will never leave you."
My heart pounds in response. And Étienne knows it, because he takes my hand and holds it against his chest, to show me how hard his heart is pounding too."

"I don't care what he thinks. Only what you think." He holds me tighter. "Like if you think I need to stop biting my nails."
"You've worn your pinkied to nubs." I say cherfully."

"He takes my hands into his. Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. "Anna?" Our foreheads touch. 
"Will you please tell me you love me? I'm dying here."

Actor Adam Brody

I think Adam Brody would make a good Étienne.
What about you? Who's your Étienne?

I'm planning a new feature on this blog called Team Smackdown. If you have a team, for instance Team Edward, Team Dimitri, etc come participare HERE. I need your help!
