My book boyfriend-- Augustus

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme that happens every Wednesday and is hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader.

I read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green last week and fell head over heals in love with Augustus Waters. Boy is he swoon worthy.

About Augustus Waters:
*Is 17 years old
*"Long and leanly muscular,...Mahogany hair, straight and short."
*Incredibly blue eyes
*Likes to live by using metaphors (this will make sense if you read the book)
*Very funny
*All around awesome in every single way.

Who I picture him looking like:
I pictured him looking like a mahogany haired version of Chord Overstreet (aka, trouty mouth from Glee.)

And this is when I'd like to give a big shout out to all those Gleek fangirls who have filled Google full of screen cap pictures of Chord shirtless, or the shower scene in that one episode, and what not. I spent a long time on google drooling, so thanks.

Augustus Quotes:

"May I see you again?" he asked. There was an endearing nervousness in his voice.
I smiled. "Sure."
"Tomorrow?" he asked.
"Patience, grasshopper," I counseled. "You don't want to seem overeager."
"Right, that's why I said tomorrow," he said. "I want to see you again tonight. But I'm willing to wait all night and much of tomorrow." I rolled my eyes. "I'm serious," he said.

"I nodded. I liked Augustus Waters. I really, really, really liked him. I liked the way his story ended with someone else. I liked his voice. I liked that he took existentially fraught free throws. I liked that he was a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin."

"She's right. It's just that most really good-looking people are stupid, so I exceed expectations."
"Right, it's primarily his hotness," I said.
"It can be sort of blinding," he said.
"it actually did blind our friend Isaac," I said.
"Terrible tragedy, that. But can I help my own deadly beauty?"
"You cannot."
"It is my burden, this beautiful face."
"Not to mention your body."
"Seriously, don't even get me started on my hot bod. You don't want to see me naked, Dave. Seeing me naked actually took Hazel Grace's breath away," he said, nodding toward the oxygen tank.

I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.

*sigh* oh Augustus, how I love that boy. I tried really hard to not give away spoilers in this post. Really, really, really hard, because this book is so damn good everyone needs to read it.


  1. OMG! SAM! I love him.

    I know that feeling about not wanting to give too much away, but then not being able to help it because the story and swoony parts are just so damn good!!!

    Augustus seems to have an awesome sense of humor, that always attracts me to a guy. Can't wait to read The Fault of Stars. I've been looking forward to it for a while.

    Thanks for the pictures, too. I'll probably me borrowing them soon. ;)

  2. ASDFGHJKL SAM!! I love him in his golden undies ;)
    And those quotes! Love em. Must have this book now.
    Going to purchase a copy when I go book shopping next XD

  3. I love Sam! The show hasn't been the same without him! I just got this book last week...I can't wait to read it and meet Augustus. Wonderful quotes and beautiful pictures!


  4. That first quote is so cute. Who wouldn't fall for a guy like that (unless he was scary and super stalkerish, but I don't think Augustus sounds like that at all).

    Great choice of Sam!!! He's one of my favorite characters. I'm so glad they brought him back!

  12. He's cute & now I need to get a copy of that book!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
