Why I love him: He's just sooo sweet! And head-over-heels in love with Grace, which is adorable, but not in a mushy-make-me-wanna-barf-Bella-and-Edward way (disclaimer: I very much enjoyed the Twilight saga, I just thought the romance aspect was over-the-top).
Picture: I was browsing Google to find a YA actor who fits my mental image of Sam, and for some reason Cody Linley comes the closest. However, he has blond hair, so the picture you see up there is a photo that I edited (poorly, I might add haha, but all I have is the Mac version of MS Paint... I could've done a better job if I had photoshop) Here's the original picture. Do you have a different actor in mind that you think would be a good Sam? Post in the comments - I'd be really interested to see your pick.
I (Grace) wrote stay madly in love.
He wrote stay human.
"Because I'll always be madly in love", he said.
(page 24 of Linger)
"I thought about telling her what I was thinking, like You're beautiful and You're my angel, but the thing with Grace was that words like that meant more to me than to her. They were throwaway phrases to her, things that made her smile for a second but were just... gone after that, too corny to be real. To Grace, these were the things that mattered: my hands on her cheeks, my lips on her mouth. The fleeting touches that meant I loved her."(from Linger)
Note: I promise next time MBB won't be from a YA book ;)"Peeling off my skinLeaving just my eyes behindYou see inside my headStill know that you are mine"(from Shiver)
So, who are you swooning over this week?
