Miscellaneous Monday - 5 Favorite Male Characters

Happy Labor Day everyone! What better way to start your day than with a post on male characters (#drool)?! I love when I can read a book and fall in love with the male character. Yes, it's great to love the female lead as well, but so many books are filled with strong female leads. I love getting inside the man's brain and reading from his point of view and understanding his thoughts. Plus I'm a sucker for a good romance. So, here are a list of my 5 male favorite male characters in no particular order.
Alex Cross - played by Tyler Perry 

1. Alex Cross from a ton of James Patterson books

Ok so no where near a romance - Alex Cross is a homicide detective in a lot of books by James Patterson (easily my favorite author). I fell in love with Alex Cross at least 7 years ago, and I still love reading about him to this day. He's strong, loves his family more than anything and puts others way above himself.

2. Finn Roberts from Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christian Lauren

I love Finn! He is carrying his family on his back, trying to do what's best for them. In the meantime, you see him transform and fall for this woman with a larger than life personality. I loved being able to read from his point of view and understand the whole story more - his story, his feelings, what is going on in his life, why he makes the decisions that he does. I fell for Finn and I'm not even sorry about it.

Jamie Fraser - played by Sam Heughan
3. Jamie Fraser from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon


I cannot say enough about Jamie. He makes me laugh. He understands Claire, who for all intensive purposes is headstrong, sassy and just a strong woman. He doesn't judge, and takes his role as her husband very seriously. He is caring and loving. And I found myself wanting to keep reading to know more about Jamie. Plus, he's Scottish - how can you go wrong with that.


4. Will Traynor from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Will hit me in all the feels. Loving this character was a gentle reminder that a person's personality is far superior to how they look. I loved the way he treats Lou - sweet and he gave her as much as she gave him. I can't go too far into detail about why I love will without giving away the book. My heart swelled with joy and hurt with pain throughout the course of this book, and all because of Will.

5. Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Augustus Waters - played by Ansel Elgort

Augustus Waters is a one of a kind human that hits you right in the feels. Despite his cancer diagnosis, he gives everything he can to Hazel and proves (to everyone) that life can still be great regardless of what you're going through. My favorite John Green character, and one that whole-heartedly deserves to make this list.
