Top Ten Tuesday - Ten fictional crushes

This is a weekly meme from The Broke and the Bookish.

This time it is about ten fictional crushes - well, it was hard to find 10 crushes so I searched really deep in my past.. ;")

Please note that these are pure "Schwärmerei" - nothing carnal in it. ;")

So here they are - in no particular order:

  1. Dr. Seward from DRACULA (Bram Stoker)

  2. Mr. Bingley from PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (Jane Austen)

  3. Colonel Brandon from SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (Jane Austen)

  4. Smike from NICHOLAS NICKLEBY (Charles Dickens) - I was about to name my cat after him - but it turned out that Lucy was a better name for her.. :")

  5. William Dobbin from VANITY FAIR (William Makepeace Thackeray) - another nearly catname - now the cat is known as Mina.. :") here you can see both of them.

  6. Jem from TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD (Harper Lee) - maybe you ought to know that I was a little girl when I first read this book.. ;")

  7. CINDERELLA (Perrault/ Brothers Grimm etc. )

  8. John Thornton from NORTH AND SOUTH (Elizabeth Gaskell)

  9. Bert from MARY POPPINS (P.L. Travers)

  10. PETER PAN (J.M. Barrie)

And: yes, I have a heart for minor characters. ;")

How about you??

P.S. Here's the one I've forfotten, but who REALLY belongs to this list: SHERLOCK HOLMES!!! (shame on me for forgetting him!)


  1. Oh! Bert from Mary Poppins! Great choice. And Jem is good too.

  2. I've been on and off again reading Dracula and Dr. Stewart is also one of my favorite characters! Great list!

  3. I love Peter so much, he was my first fictional crush ever.

  4. I love John Thorton too! I think my top fiction crush would be Sherlock Holmes, from the orginal stores of course :D

  5. Oh man, I forgot about Bert from Mary Poppins! Every week I want to go back to my list and amend after I read others' posts. Good list.

  6. This is a great list! And I do like minor characters....Bingley is a gem, but probably too nice for me--but perfect for Jane...

  7. Yes, Bert from Mary Poppins!

    Here's mine:
