My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by The Unread Reader.
Because I finally saw The Hunger Games (Awesome movie by the way!) yesterday, my book boyfriend of this week is:
~ Peeta Mellark ~
Peeta is the 16 year old male tribute from District 12. He's the son of the baker and naturally he has talent for baking but also for decorating the cakes. He also paints.
He described as being "medium height with a stocky build" and has "ashy blond hair that falls in waves over his forehead" with blue eyes.
He's also very loving, kind and self secrificing.
“We were five. You had a plaid dress and your hair...it was in two braids instead of one. My father pointed you out while we were waiting to line up. He said, 'See that little girl? I wanted to marry her mother, but she ran off with a coal miner.' And I said, 'A coal miner? Why did she want a coal miner if she could've had you?' And he said, 'Because when he sings...even the birds stop to listen.' So that day, in music assembly, the teacher asked who knew the valley song. Your hand shot right up in the air. She put you up on a stool and had you sing it for us. And I swear, ever bird outside the windows fell silent. And right when your song ended, I knew -just like your mother- I was a goner.”
