10 Book Characters Who Are Sexy As Hell In Their Movie & TV Adaptations

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is bookish boyfriends/girlfriends -- i.e. characters we have crushes on. I have an abysmal memory for that sort of thing in books, so I decided to focus on book adaptations instead. These are all book-to-movie or book-to-TV-show adaptations with some very attractive protagonists. These guys are smart and decent (for the most part) and oh-so-sexy.

It's impossible to put them in any kind of order of preference, so they're alphabetical by movie/show. (P.S. I apparently have a thing for Brits and Bostonians and floppy-haired men!)

Jon Snow, "Game of Thrones"
Jon is quite obviously easy on the eyes, but he's also a damn good person. He's intelligent, brave and kind.

Sidney Chambers, "Grantchester"
Sidney is a somewhat flawed but utterly lovable 1950s English vicar who solves crimes and, mmm, does he look good doing it!

Finnick Odair, "Hunger Games: Catching Fire"
Finnick comes off cocky but he's a softie underneath. He's devoted, clever and self-sacrificing.

Mark Watney, "The Martian"
Mark is so very intelligent -- and funny!

Jamie Fraser, "Outlander"
Oh-em-gee, Jamie. He's passionate, smart and as loyal as they come.

Ross Poldark, "Poldark"
Oh, Ross. He's a man who sticks to his word and stands up for what he believes in. He makes mistakes from time to time, but god damn, does he look good doing it.

Fitzwilliam Darcy, "Pride and Prejudice"
 I mean, isn't Mr. Darcy the quintessential book boyfriend!? And of course we have to go with the Colin Firth version.

Sherlock Holmes, "Sherlock"
Let's be honest, Sherlock Holmes would not be a good boyfriend. He's a self-centered, egotistical, impossible jerk. But there's something so sexy about a confident, brilliant man. And if I had to choose one of the many Sherlocks to be my book boyfriend, I'd have to go with the Benedict Cumberbatch version!

Doug MacRay, "The Town" (book title: "Prince of Thieves")
Gotta include a couple of bad boys! Doug is a Boston bank robber trying to turn his life around.

Eric Northman, "True Blood"
Bad boy #2: everyone's favorite vampire/Viking god (with a secret soft side).


  1. I always liked Eric better than Vampire Bill and I think the casting for True Blood was awesome. Jon Snow is VERY easy on the eyes!

  2. Love love love your list! I only have Mr. Darcy on mine, but I have a lot of love for Finnick, Jamie, and Ross (even if he's infuriating sometimes)

  3. Some very attractive men here!

  4. Good choices. I don't watch a lot of TV but... maybe I should!

  5. Awesome list!! I just love Finnick myself!

  6. I didn't do one this week because I also have a terrible memory for that kind of thing. I love your take on the topic! (And totally agree re: Mr. Darcy.)
