My Book Boyfriend (#16): Finnick Odair

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.

Here's a cheeky fellow, who I fell in love with in Catching Fire....Finnick Odair

Finnick's Stats: 

Status: Finnick was the male victor from District 4, he is known for being the victor of the 64th Hunger Games 
Age: 24
Resides: District 4
Love Interest: Annie Cresta his female counter part from District 4
Description: Extremely handsome. Tall, Muscular, and athletic looking with golden skin, bronze coloured hair and 'sea-green' eyes.

"Finnick?" I say, "Maybe some pants?"
He looks down at his legs as if noticing his outfit for the first time. Then he whips off his hospital gown leaving him in just his underwear. "Why? Do you find this" -- he strikes a ridiculously provocative pose -- "distracting?" 

"Want a sugar cube?"

"Poor Finnick. Is this the first time in your life you haven't looked pretty?” I say.
“It must be. The sensation's completely new. How have you managed it all these years?” he asks.
“Just avoid mirrors. You'll forget about it,” I say.
“Not if I keep looking at you,” he says." 

Aha! There you have it! Taylor Kitsch is MY Finnick, and that's who I'd like Lionsgate to cast for Catching Fire! He may not have 'sea-green' eyes, but he's handsome, has the body and is just nomish! Hope you like him too!

So if you want to get yourself a bit of Finnick, you can find him The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I hope you enjoyed this weeks...I know I did.

I love your pick for Mr. Odair. Very steamy. Finnick gets the best comedic lines in that series. My fangirl giggles were many when he was in play.

Good quotes too! I <3 the line about Odair and his undewear.
Marissa @ And many to read before I sleep

I love Finnick too. My heart completely broke in Mockingjay. He's incredible and quickly became one of my favorite characters.
