My Book Boyfriend: Elder

Today my book boyfriend is Elder from Across The Universe by Beth Revis.

Name: Elder *Now he will probably be Eldest in the next book*

Age: 17 ish

Hair: Dark

Height: Not specific but slender bod.

First appearance: Acroos The Universe

He lives in a spaceship and about to be the captain, how cool is that!!

Elder smiles at me, a sort of half-smile that looks like a smirk.
“You talk funny,” he says, which is ironic since his words sound like “ya tal-funnae” to me.
“Ha! You’re the one with the weird accent!”
“Wee-urd axe-scent,” he mocks. I stick my tongue out at him, but I’m laughing, too.

And then—I’m not sure how it happens—but she takes a step closer and I take a step closer, and then we’re both just entirely too close.
And there is nothing between us but rain.
Then there is nothing between us at all.
My lips melt into hers. A drop of rainwater slips around the edge of my mouth, and then her lips part, and so do mine. The raindrop falls on my tongue, and then it’s lost on hers.

Elder was played by Francisco Lachowski.

MBB is hosted every week on Wednesday by Missie at the The Unread Reader.

  3. And there is nothing between us but rain.

    OMG! That last scene is going to be the death of me! I got a double dose of Elder love today. I think this is a sign that I need to read the book asap!
