Swoony Boy of the Month is our new feature where we spotlight a favorite swoony boy from the books we have read.
For this month swoony boy we are gushing about, Benton James Kessler in November 9 by Colleen Hoover. Ben won us over with his sweet book talk and his selflessness.
“She’s startled by my words. I think she expected me to let her go without a fight, but she’s not the kind of girl you choose your battles for. She’s the kind of girl you fight to the death for.”
“But for the first time, I don’t feel like the English language has developed enough letters in the alphabet to adequately express the words I want to say to you.”
“Because when you love someone, you owe it to them to help them be the best version of themselves that they can be. And as much as it crushes me to admit this, the best version of you doesn’t include me.”~Colleen Hoover, November 9
“And I’m in love with her. Like, really in love with her. Crippling, debilitating, paralyzing love. So please accept my sincerest apologies, because she’s coming home with me tonight. I hope. I pray.”
“All I care about is you. Being with you every day. Seeing you every day. I’m not finished falling in love with you yet.”
“A body is simply a package for the true gifts inside. And you are full of gifts. Selflessness, kindness, compassion. All the things that matter. Youth and beauty fade. Human decency doesn't.”~Colleen Hoover, November 9
“Sometimes at night, I’ll rewrite conversations I had during the day, but I’ll change them up to reflect everything I wish I could have said in the moment. So I just want you to know that tonight when I write this conversation down on paper, I’ll say something really heroic and it’ll make you feel really good about your life.”
*Swoons* Ben is such a sweetheart! What do you think? Tell us about your favorite Swoony Boy.
