It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!
Today’s topic is a FREEBIE! This concept has been sitting in my drafts for a while, and I’ve added to it along the way. I’m talking here about bespectacled book boyfriends! I know this is a superficial way to categorize a hero, but it’s just so darn fun to recognize glasses as a little everyday accessory that add a bit of intelligence to any face (I say this as I wear them myself 😉 ). So, welcome to my new fan club.
The Bespectacled Book Boyfriends Club
Tom Finchley from A Modest Independence by Mimi Matthews
Titus from Jane By the Book by Pepper Basham
Nate from Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green
Peter from When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin
Will from Love at First by Kate Clayborn
Zivon from A Portrait of Loyalty by Roseanna M. White
Simon from The Mozart Code by Rachel McMillan AND Oliver Thorne in Rose in Three Quarter Time by Rachel McMillan (shoutout to Hamish from her Van Buren and DeLuca mysteries!)
From my TBR
I have been told these are wonderful heroes, who also happen to be bespectacled
Quin from The Lady in Residence by Allison Pittman
Ray from The Kindred Spirits Supper Club by Amy E. Reichert
Amos from Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer
Have you “met” any of these book boyfriends? Do you have any bespectacled characters I need to add to my list? What did you feature for this week’s TTT?

I’ve read quite a few of these and had forgotten some of the heroes were bespectacled! What a fun choice for this week. And these books feature some great men regardless of whether or not they wear glasses.
Aw, as someone who wears glasses, I appreciate this post! Also, I have Love At First at home, I need to read it.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.. Thank you!
Haha, I haven’t heard of any of these! Glasses are a huge turn on for me, so I love this.

Love this, so much fun! I loved Titus!! I am showcasing series that I want to complete on my blog today: https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/04/top-ten-tuesday-book-series-i-would.html
What a fun theme for a list. I love it! My husband got Lasik a number of years ago, but he was, once upon a time, very much bespectacled 🙂 I’ve read VEILED IN SMOKE, although I don’t remember the hero having glasses (my memory is no beuno). I do remember the hero from THE LADY IN RESIDENCE, though, and he’s adorable!
