25 Days of Book Boyfriends Tour: Levi from Fangirl (+ Giveaway!)
Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros and Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives hosted the 25 Days of Book Boyfriends tour last year, and I wanted to sign up. But I was a shy little baby blogger, so I didn't. I'm so delighted to be on the tour this year, though, because I do love talking about book boys. ;)
I thought long and hard about book boys that I adore and had a difficult time picking just one. I finally decided on a boy who I could read about forever, who always makes me smile: Levi from Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, one of my all-time favorite books. I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite Levi quotes and my Levi fancasting. Also, stay tuned for a little giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Lemme just start by telling y'all about Levi, for those of you who aren't familiar with the novel. Levi's tall and adorable and supports Cath in her endeavors. He is always the optimist, always has a smile on his face, and he just says the sweetest things. I love that, even though he's not a reader, he fell in love with Cath's fanfiction and the Simon Snow series because Cath read them to him. And I love that he just lets himself love Cath and that he's so earnest and open about his feelings. Man, Levi is wonderful.
Here are some of my favorite things Levi says:
He always seems to know the right thing to say. He's so swoon-worthy and sweet, and I just want to give him a hug.
And now, on to the fancasting. Since I read the book early last year, I've been thinking about actors who I could see as Levi. It would have to be someone tall, someone lanky yet still muscular, someone with young, almost boyish features and a bright, warm, happy-making smile; I emerged from my Arrow binge session thinking that Grant Gustin would be PERFECT as Levi.
LOOK AT THIS CUTIE.
His smile makes me want to smile right back at him. I can totally see him as Levi, and if a Fangirl movie were to come into existence, I hope he's considered.
Levi is a character that makes me smile whenever I read about him. He's everything I could ever want in a book boyfriend.
What about you? Are you a fellow Levi enthusiast, or does another boy come to mind when I say "book boyfriend"? Let me know! I'd love to hear about him. And don't forget to check out the other spots on the tour if you want to read about more cute fictional guys!
