My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Missie over at The Unread Reader. Each week you post about a boy from a book that you love. Write what he's like, who'd you like to play him in a movie, quotes of his from the book, whatever you like.
This week I'm picking Cade from The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder. He's adorable and I easily thought of someone I'd like to play him if this is ever turned into a movie.
*Drives a VW bug (old school ones. Awesome)
*Listens to Fall Out Boy (this was the real seller for me. My all time favorite band.)
*Wears skinny jeans and black knit beanies
* has black hair long enough to stick out of said beanie
*Is "cute" skinny. Aka looks good in skinny jeans
*plays the guitar and sings
*Sweetest guy ever.
Who'd I'd like to play him.
I babysit and the kids and my favorite show to watch is Big Time Rush. This means I listen to their cd all the time and have seen them in concert. Even got to hi-five one of the band members. So in other words, I see their faces all the time. When I read The Day Before and read about Cade, I immediately pictured him looking like Kendall Schmidt. Just give him black hair and wha-la, you got Cade.
And because this is a MBB post, it needs a shirtless picture
I don't want to say too many quotes, because 1) the book is written in verse and quotes are a little harder to understand that way and 2) because I don't want to give away spoilers. So here is the song that he sings to Amber that he also wrote:
sun on skin.
take it in.
It's this feeling I get
that I can't seem to find
except when I let
all the worries unwind
when you're there by my side.
When you won't let me hide.
Let's go for a ride.
Hand in hand,
All we need
we'll find right here."
Here is my little side note. If you've never read a Lisa Schroeder book, you're missing out. Buy them, get them from the library, borrow from a friend, I don't care how you get them, you just need to. They are quick, emotional books that are phenomenal.
