My Book Boyfriend (#20): Alex Sheaths

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread ReaderWhat is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well it is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out the My Book Boyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

So this week I wanted to introduce (if you don't know him already), Alex Sheaths of Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Status: Is an 'uncured' from The Wilds. Listens to Lena when she speaks, likes to read forbidden poetry. And is an amazing kisser...
Age: 19
Hair: Golden Brown
Eyes: Amber
Love Interest: Lena Haloway
Description: His hair is golden brown, like leaves in autumn just as they're turning, and he has bright amber eyes.

"Why do you care?" I say, barely a whisper.
"I told you" he whispers back. I can feel his breath just tickling skin space behind my ear, making the hair prick up on my neck. "I like you."
"You don't know me" I say quickly.
"I want to though"

"You want to hear a different one?" He doesn't wait for me to answer before beginning to recite, "'How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.'"
There's that word again: love. My heart stops when he says it, then stutters into a frantic rhythm.
"I love thee to the deph and breadth and height my soul can reach..."
I know he's only speaking someone else's words, but they seem to come from him anyway. His eyes are dancing with light; in each of them I see a bright point of candlelight reflected.
He takes a step forward and kisses my forehead softly. "I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need...'"
"Alex-" I start to say, but the word gets tangled in my throat.
He kisses each cheekbone- a delicious, skimming kiss, barely grazing my skin. "I love thee freely..."
"Alex," I say, a little louder. My heart is beating so fast I'm afraid it will burst from my ribs."

"Alex?" "Yeah?" "Tell me that poem again." My voice doesn't sound like my own; my words seem to come from a distance. "Which one?" Alex whispers. "The one you know by heart." Drifting; I'm drifting. "I know a lot of them by heart." "Any one, then." He takes a deep breath and begins: "'I carry your heart with me. I carry it in my heart. I am never without it...'"

"The moonlight just touches his shoulder blades so they glow slightly, like wing tips, like pictures of angels I've seen in textbooks. He's thin but muscular too: When he moves I can make out the lines of his arms and chest, so strangely, incredibly, beautifully different from a girl's, a body that makes me think of running and being outside, of warmth and sweating."

Alright well, there you go. Alex is a total s*x pot lol. I love him. Lauren Oliver created one of those boys that makes your heart go all a flutter and you don't stop thinking about him. Actor Shiloh Fernandez is my Alex this week, he's just perfect, and such a s*x pot in his own right.

If you'd like a piece of Alex you can catch him in Delirium by Lauren Oliver. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks, it's been a while but I'm back lol!

I'm so curious about this book, it's at the top of my TBR list. Do you know, I really disliked Shiloh at first but he's growing on me. Those pics are HOT!

Lisa said...

Oh Alex...he is the reason all girls should stay 'uncured.'

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Jess! You came back just to kill me, didn't you?! GAH! I totally fell in love with Shiloh in Red Riding Hood so thank you for all those yummy pictures of him.

Definitely have to agree with Lisa here. Alex is a great reason to be uncured. ;)

Missie-That's where I fell in love with him lol. Yes, I came back to kill you with these Shiloh pictures.

Lisa-Agreed, Alex is the only reason to stay 'uncured'
