My Book Boyfriend: Adam Wilde

My Book Boyfriend is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader, all about fictional boys who make us swoon. If you've been reading my blog at all this week, it'll come as no surprise that I'm currently obsessing over Adam Wilde from If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman.

About Adam
  • He's a hopelessy romantic, grand-gesture, do-anything-for-love kind of guy. He invests everything in love - so when he loses it, he's utterly crushed.
  • He's obsessed with music, and is a guitar-playing, singing, song-writing rock god.
  • He's a gentleman at heart, even if his depression leads him to act in a different way at times.
  • His eyes are flecked with green, brown and grey, and he has a lopsided smile. He's thin but built, and has some subtle tattoos.
  • To me, Adam looks like Darren Criss.
Swoon-worthy Quotes

"Please Mia," he implores. "Don't make me write a song."

"Whenever I remember it, I just picture our tent, a little ship glowing in the night, the sounds of Mia’s and my whispers escaping like musical notes, floating out on a moonlit sea."

"I suddenly want to hear her bones rattle. I want to feel the softness of her flesh give, to hear her gasp as my hip bone jams into her. I want to yank her head back until her neck is exposed. I want to rip my hands through her hair until her breath is labored. I want to make her cry and then lick up the tears. And then I want to take my mouth to hers, to devour her alive, to transmit all the things she can’t understand."

"You don’t share me. You own me."

"'Your place is right here,'" I whispered, laying down and hugging her close.

"Hate me. Devastate me. Annihilate me. Re-create me. Re-create me. Won't you, won't you won't you re-create me."

"I can't wrap my mind around the notion of you not getting old, having kids, going to Juilliard, getting to play that cello in front of a huge audience, so that they can get chills the way I do every time I see you pick up your bow, every time I see you smile at me."

  5. eeeeeeeep! So, I still haven't read these books. They wait patiently for me on my shelf. However, I'm way excited to picture Darren as Adam. :)

  6. Wait till you read the book! There's so much more to swoon over! I just devoured them both over two nights - they're pretty great. Not only is Adam amazing, but so is Mia and all the other characters. People have been telling me to read them for ages so I'm going to turn around and do the same - go read them now! ;)
