February: Month of Love and Book Boyfriends - Day One: Augustus Walters

It’s February (already) so it’s time for a monthly feature!

Do you know the weekly feature that was hosted by TheUnread Reader titled My Book Boyfriend? I love that feature!
Well, since February is the month of love I decided it would be fun to make a post everyday featuring one of my favorite book boyfriends and I want your opinion on those boys!

This means I have 28 posts about dream-worthy characters ready! I still really want to know who your favorite book boyfriends are and why you like them so much.
When the month ends I’ll be hosting a giveaway featuring a few of the guys. I promise it will be a good one. :)

Now without further ado, he’s my first book boyfriend of the month:

Physical Description

"Long and leanly muscular, he dwarfed the molded plastic elementary school chair he was sitting in. Mahogany hair, straight and short. He looked my age, maybe a year older, and he sat with his tailbone against the edge of the chair, his posture aggressively poor, one hand half in a pocket of dark jeans."


“May I see you again?" he asked. There was an endearing nervousness in his voice.
I smiled. "Sure."
"Tomorrow?" he asked.
"Patience, grasshopper," I counseled. "You don't want to seem overeager.
"Right, that's why I said tomorrow," he said. "I want to see you again tonight. But I'm willing to wait all night and much of tomorrow." I rolled my eyes. "I'm serious," he said.
"You don't even know me," I said. I grabbed the book from the center console. "How about I call you when I finish this?"
"But you don't even have my phone number," he said.
"I strongly suspect you wrote it in this book."
He broke out into that goofy smile. "And you say we don't know each other.”


“Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”



“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.
"Augustus," I said.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”


“I can only hope,” Julie said, turning back to Gus, “they grow into the kind of thoughtful, intelligent young men you’ve become.”
I resisted the urge to audibly gag. “He’s not that smart,” I said to Julie.
“She’s right. It’s just that most really good-looking people are stupid, so I exceed expectations.”
“Right, it’s primarily his hotness,” I said.
“It can be sort of blinding,” he said.
“It actually did blind our friend Isaac,” I said.
“Terrible tragedy, that. But can I help my own deadly beauty?”
“You cannot.”
“It is my burden, this beautiful face.”
“Not to mention your body.”
"Seriously, don’t even get me started on my hot bod. You don’t want to see me naked, Dave. Seeing me naked actually took Hazel Grace’s breath away,” he said, nodding toward the oxygen tank.


“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”

Why He's a Great Book Boyfriend:

Augustus is funny, sweet and romantic. In the beginning of the book he is recovering from osteosarcoma and his positive attitude and will to live life to the fullest is inspiring.
The way he loves and threats Hazel Grace makes him even more wonderful.

Isn't Augustus just wonderful? 
If you too think Augustus is a wonderful character and book boyfriend let me know why!
