My book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by the unread reader (:

This week my book boyfriend is....Astley from the Need series by Carrie Jones. I adore this series and cannot wait for book 4 to come out sometime in 2012. There is a love triangle in this series...and let me just say I may rip my head off if it doesn't end with Zara and Astley!

As for Astley I really couldn't find an actor that fit him just right, the guy I finally decided was the closest, but still has flaws is Alexander Ludwig. Alexander I'm not 100% sold on..but in this pic he comes pretty close to fulfilling my Astley standards (:

Astley is gorgeous, sweet, loving, and just, well pretty damn close to perfect.

Now for some awesome Astley Quotes

"I promise you. You will survive this. Feel my hand. It is yours now, my queen. I promise you. I am yours." 

"I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here. I want you to love me for me. I want you to kiss me first and not because you need me to help you, but because you need to kiss me."

"Maybe,” he says slowly, as if each word is an effort, “she took advantage of me."

I totally agree! I'm 100% sold on Astley and I will be VERY sad if Zara doesn't end up with him. :( <---that's exactly what I'll look like.

Haley @ YA-Aholic said...

ughhh we can all hope! (: Astley is perfect for Zara, but I guess time will tell who she ends up with. (crosses fingers for Astley)

Astley.... *swoon*
Astley does end up with Zara and I am so freaking happy!
I think Alexander Ludwig sort of seems like Astley so good pick :D
