My Book Boyfriend: Finnick Odair

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader.

I was introduced to Finnick Odair in Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins;and I forgot all about those other guys.  Katniss you fool!  If you don't want him I'll take him.  But at last, he's in love with Annie; I'm taken; and let's not forget he's but a fictional character.  But I can always dream right?!?!  This is why I adore him, complete with my commentary as I read the heart stopping lines:
Finnick Odair is portrayed by Tyler Hoechlin

Try not to droll too much.  "My" book boyfriend, remember?  Go get your own!(lol)

“Want a sugar cube?” he says, offering his hand, which is piled high.  “They’re supposed to be for the horses, but who cares?  They’ve got years to eat sugar, whereas you and I….well, if wee see something sweet, we better grab it quick.”

 Why yes, I'll take some sugar.  Thank-you! *Wink*

Tall, athletic, with golden skin and bronze-colored hair and those incredible eyes.
He may have to dye his hair, but those eyes.  He doesn't have to change a thing about those eyes. *SWOON*

He’s been on boats his whole life.  The trident was a natural, extension of his arm.

He’s draped in a golden net that’s strategically knotted at his groin so that he can’t technically be called naked, but he’s about as close as you can get.

*Giggling uncontrollably*  God bless his stylist!

He wets his lips ever so slightly with his tongue.

He has to be able to pull this technique off jusssst right.  LLCool J has the perfect sexy lip lick.  If Finnick can do it like that- the way it's playing in my head......HOT DAMN! Yessir take me now!  (Sorry the country comes out when I'm

He tips his head in so his lips are almost in contact with mine.  “What about you, girl on fire?  Do you have any secrets worth my time?”

Finnick Odair, you stole the show in my eyes.  I don't care what they say about you being a playboy.  I hope to see more of you in book 3, Mockingjay.

So did any book men give you heart palpitations lately?

Oops!  Sorry I posted early. LOL. I couldn't wait.


  1. OMIGAWE!! FINNICK. Love love LOVE him. Hunger Games movie hasn't even been released and I can hardly wait to see who they pick to play Finnick. Tyler Hoechlin has a very mysterious look to him, I didn't picture him as Finnick but I guess he would work ;)

  2. Finnick! He is so much fun. He cracked me up. I love all The Hunger Games guys! I also especially love who you picked for him. That guy is such a hottie.

  3. Finnick is awesome! I fell in love with him in Catching Fire and continued that love into Mockingjay. You picked a great guy for him...I personally can't wait to see who they cast for the movie version. Great choice!


  4. Finnick!!!!!!!! I love him. I love how much he adores Annie. He was such a complex character because on the surface you just see the superficial side of him, but when you get to know him on a deeper level, he's so different.

    So you haven't read Mockingjay yet? If not, it's gonna break your heart. *hugs*

  5. Hahahaha, yes, he did kind of steal the show, didn't he - I think with the proper dye, your Finnick wins out. And I am sorry, but you'll to share :)

  6. I just finished today. Thanks Missie. I really needed that hug! I feel like just as soon as I fell in love with him, he was taken away. WWWWHHHHHHHYYYY?

  7. I know! I was devastated!!! It was so unfair. :(

  8. Oh Katrina I so loved Finnick! I cried so hard when he died. I actually couldn't belive it. Not really. I got myself re-read the 2 pages again and even then I couldn't belive it. I guess I still don't :/

  9. Woo,woo, whoo! Tell me about it. I think I'm about to start crying again. I just stood there staring at the book saying, "you didn't have to do that." My husband gave me a hug to calm me down; and this time he didn't poke fun at me for getting over emotional about my books. (Suzanne Collins! Me and you 3 0'clock!) I'm just praying they rewrite that part in the movie.

  11. Awe Finnick! I love him so much, I was a complete wreck when he died, I felt his death was just so pointless, there was no need for it. Like you, just as I fell in love with him, he gets taken away. I love the guy you've used, he's perfect!


  12. Finnick Odair (in his underware! -- I wish, and couldn't resist)!
