Imaginary Love

Alright, character crushes. We've all heard about them and a lot of us have had them. There's just something about certain fictional characters that we just can't resist. Let's go through some popular ones:

Jacob vs. Edward - Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Of course this is the first of any imaginary love list. I mean people created teams for them for goodness sake. For myself, I'd choose Jacob. Come on. He's at least halfway normal. But for Bella I'd choose Edward for reasons that are obvious in the last book.

Peeta vs. Gale - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Now this is a tough one. On one hand you have Peeta who grew close to Katniss by being the chosen boy in their pair, but on the other is Gale who grew up with her and is already like family. Ugh. I can't even make a choice. I don't know what I would do.

Brenda vs. Teresa - The Maze Runner by James Dashner

In the second book, The Scorch Trials, we are introduced to someone who could be a new love interest for Thomas, Brenda. So again we have the old friend and the new one. From where they're at in the book now I'd say that Thomas should go out with Brenda but it wouldn't work out then he'd be conveniently single when he runs into Teresa again years later. Classic romance movie scenario.

Regardless of what choices they make, I wish these imaginary characters the best. Here's to finding many new imaginary loves. Check out these books if you haven't already. Happy (early) Valentines Day! :)

Ps.- Check out the people over at The Treehouse Gang. They posted a story of mine today! Let them know what you think about it then check out their other posts too. :)


  1. Team Jacob all the way! I once took an anthropology course on monsters. We had a debate for fun in class about whether werewolves or vampires were better. Most people liked vampires, but we all know that werewolves are the best. Haha, I'm not really a monster book fan, but it was a fun debate.

    Nice story! I liked the ending a lot.

  2. Lol! That's awesome. I would've loved to hear that. In my opinion werewolves win every time, but not in a fight. Pretty sure that vampires got them there. Irony, we're watching Dracula right now. Lol.

    And thank you!

  3. I had a hard time with Hunger Games - I liked Peeta and Gale, and did not like that it became all about choosing between them. I wish she could have just told both of them they were her friends and that would have been that.

  4. It's kinda hard for it to not be about that though, isn't it? She pretends she's together with one when they're out and sneaks off with the other when she's home. I think I would've liked to have seen it play out a little differently too.
