Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie!


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.    

This week's topic is:
December 25: Top Ten Tuesday Freebie (so that those too busy celebrating won't miss a topic)
These are in no particular order.

I was able to schedule mine to post last week, so I thought up a really great topic. My topic for today is:

Top Ten YA Boys I want to get under the Mistletoe tonight!

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)If I Stay (If I Stay #1)Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)
Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry, #3)Shade (Shade, #1)Time Between Us
Deity (Covenant, #3)The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)Anna and the French Kiss
Something Like Normal

1. Noah  from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry  
“If you’re scared, tell me. If you need to cry and scream, then do it. And you sure as hell don’t walk away from us because you think it would be better for me. Here’s the reality, Echo: I want to be by your side. If you want to go to the mall stark naked so you can show the world your scars, then let me hold your hand. If you want to see your mom, then tell me that too. I may not always understand, but damn, baby, I’ll try.” 
― Katie McGarryPushing the Limits

2. Adam from If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman.
“Please Mia," he implores. "Don't make me write a song.” 
― Gayle FormanIf I Stay

3. Alex Fuentes Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
“You once said you loved me. Do you still?"
My sister is watching this exchange between us. She smiles warmly at me, giving me the strength to tell him the truth. "I never stopped loving you. Even when I tried desperately to forget you. I couldn't.” 
― Simone ElkelesPerfect Chemistry

4. Luis Fuentes  from Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles
“We deserve each other, Luis … and I need you just as much as you need me. Hold me.”
He steps closer, but hesitates. 
“If I do, mi chava, I can’t promise I’ll be able to let you go.” 
― Simone ElkelesChain Reaction

5. Zach from Shade, Shift, and Shine by Jeri Smith Ready. 
“Instead I crawled next to him, snuggling close. "Zach, wake up."
"Can't. Sleeping."
I pressed my mouth to his in a full, deep kiss.
"Second thought, not sleeping.” 
― Jeri Smith-ReadyShine

6.  Bennett. From The Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
“I don’t stay anywhere. I visit. I observe. I leave. I don’t ever stay.”I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with this information. Tell him to leave? Tell him to stay? But I don’t have time to consider any other alternatives, because he scoots in closer and brings his hands to my face, and I fall back into the bookcase as he kisses me with this intensity—like he wants to be here, and if he kisses me just long enough, deeply enough, none of what he just said will actually be true.” 
― Tamara Ireland StoneTime Between Us

7.  Aiden. From Half-Blood, Pure, and Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout
(Honestly, how many of you all knew that he would be on here? lol) 
“I can’t keep pretending that I don’t want this – that I don’t want you. I can’t. Not after what happened to you. It thought… I thought I’d lost you, Alex, forever. And I would’ve lost everything. You are my everything.” 
― Jennifer L. ArmentroutDeity

8. Noah Shaw. From The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and the Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
“You can't hurt me the way you think you can. But even if you could? I would rather die with the taste of you on my tongue than live and never touch you again. I'm in love with you, Mara. I love you. No matter what you do.” 
― Michelle HodkinThe Evolution of Mara Dyer

9.  Etienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
“I trail my fingers across his cheek. He stays perfectly still for me. “Please stop apologizing, Étienne.”
“Say my name again,” he whispers.
I close my eyes and lean forward. “Étienne.”
He takes my hands into his.Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. “Anna?”
Our foreheads touch. “Yes?”
“Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.”
And then we’re laughing. And then I’m in his arms, and we’re kissing, at first quickly—to make up for lost time—and then slowly, because we have all
the time in the world. And his lips are soft and honey sweet, and the careful, passionate way he moves them against my own says that he savors the way I
taste, too.
And in between kisses, I tell him I love him.
Again and again and again.” 
― Stephanie PerkinsAnna and the French Kiss

10. Travis from Something Like Normal by Trish Doller.
“Yeah, well, I don't really want to kick you when you're down, but mostly for some crazy reason"- her face tilts up and she gives me this shy little grin-"I think you might be worth it.” 
― Trish DollerSomething Like Normal

*RUNNER UPS!*

Shade (Shade, #1)
1. Logan from Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
“He leaned in. “Kiss me, one last time.” I called up a distant memory of his lips against mine. But this time, I kept my eyes open.
When he pulled back, Logan passed his hand over my hair. “Don’t forget me, okay?” 
― Jeri Smith-ReadyShade

The Fault in Our Stars
2. Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“I'm in love with you," he said quietly."Augustus," I said.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "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 that 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.” 
― John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, #2)
3. Carlos  from Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles. 
“Tonight was... well, it was perfect for me too. You've turned my world upside down. I've fallen in love with you, chica, and it scares the fuckin' shit outta me. I've been shakin' all night, because I knew it.I've tried to deny it, to make you think I wanted you as a fake girlfriend, but that was a lie.” 
― Simone ElkelesRules of Attraction

Welp, those are the boys I want to get under the mistletoe! (Judging by the quotes, can you blame me?!)
What boys (or girls) do you want to take underneath it?!
