My book boyfriend is a weekly meme in which you post about one of your favorite boys from a book you love. This was thought of and hosted by The Unread Reader
This weeks boyfriend is Alexander from the Bronze Horseman! This series does not get enough attention in the blogging world. It needs more love!
*is American but moved to Russia when he was young
*Is a soldier in Russia during WWII
*travels all the way across Russia to be with the girl he loves
*Tall, muscular, brown hair
Who I picture him looking like:
Henry Cavill! He is the perfect Alexander!
"Tatiana: "Why did we spend two days fighting when we could have been doing this?"
Alexander: "That wasn't fighting, Tatiasha. That was foreplay."
"I'm going to die with Alexander's hand on my face, Tatiana thought. That is not a bad way to die. I cannot move. I can't get up. Just can't. She closed her eyes and felt herself drifting. Through the haze in front of her she heard Alexander's voice. "Tatiana, I love you. Do you hear me? I love you like I've never loved anyone in my whole life. Now, get up. For me, Tatia. For me, please get up and go take care of your sister. Go on. And I'll take care of you."
"Tatiana said. "Go on with Dasha. She is right for you. She is a woman and I'm-" "Blind!", Alexander exclaimed. Tatiana stood, desolately failing in the battle of her heart. "Oh, Alexander. What do you want from me..."
"Everything", he whispered fiercely."
"A bus came. The soldier turned away from her and walked toward it. Tatiana watched him. Even his walk was from another world; the step was too sure, the stride too long, yet somehow it all seemed right, looked right, felt right. It was like stumbling on a book you thought you had lost. Ah, yes, there it is."
