To celebrate Valentine's Day, some of our Teen Board members wrote blog posts to celebrate all things book crushes, romance novels and awesome fictional dates. Below, Asia H. reveals a few of her favorite YA heartthrobs.


Whether it be on a classmate, co-worker or celebrity. In my case, most of my crushes have been fictional teenagers from various young-adult novels. I’ve even gone as far as to create a Pinterest board dedicated to my literary heart-throbs.

The first on my list is Uriah Pedrad from the Divergent trilogy. Uriah is such a hard worker, ranking second under Tris in the final initiation. His goofball attitude is warm and friendly. This shows when he shoots a muffin off of Marlene’s head and eats it, afterwards. Uriah is also very loyal to his friends. When Tori tells Uriah that Tris is a traitor, he still acts friendly with her and brings Tris gauze for her wound.

Minho from THE MAZE RUNNER serves as my second book crush. Minho is a take action guy with a quick temper. One quality he has that I find different is his sarcasm and wittiness. Of all the books I’ve read, Minho is definitely the most sharp-tongued. Although he doesn’t always seem like it, Minho cares about his friends and is very loyal towards them. Friendship is a very important value to me so this draws him to my attention.
