My Book Boyfriend(5): Romeo
My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie @ The Unread Reader, in which we swoon over boys in books!
Here is how My Book Boyfriend works:
On Wednesdays, make a post about a fictional boy that totally made you swoon! In your post, make sure you include your book boyfriend’s stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that had you at hello. Credit the book and please include page numbers when you can.
So my book boyfriend this week is Romeo from Romeo Redeemed by Stacie Jay. To those who are not familiar with this book,Romeo Redeemed is the sequel to Stacie Jay's Juliet Immortal.In this series,Stacie Jay portrays a world where Shakespeare's famous love story Romeo and Juliet is a lie.I know,sounds good,right!But don't get too excited.Romeo Redeemed is going to be out in October but I was able to get my hands on an ARC thanks to Netgalley.Well,now enough with the rambling.Let's get on to Romeo.Now why am I so obsessed with him?Here's your answer:
And to be honest,I'm not usually into mushy covers but the colours in this one just draws you in.Plus Romeo looks totally hot! ;) Now the girl kissing him?That's another story.All I care for now is that she's got her hands all over my Romeo!!!And it's practically killing me!!! :'(
Here's a paragraph from the book which had me swooning:
"Which is why I have to appropriate rather than buy this bottle.The shortsighted laws restricting teenage drinking have forced me into this," I say."It's the Man you should be angry with,Ariel.I am innocent."
She lifts a wry brow. "Innocent isn't a word I'd use."
"What word would you use?Wait-"I hold up a hand between us. "Don't answer that.Not until you've had a glass of wine and think I'm pretty again."
You still have more than a month until Romeo Redeemed comes out.So meanwhile, try out Juliet Immortal.I promise that it won't disappoint. :)
