Dreaming after Midnight (#7) Henry

Dreaming after Midnight (#7) Henry

in Dreaming after Midnight



(from Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally)

I enjoy watching love bloom from pure, honest friendship. That never happened to me in real life, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t wish for something like that. And Henry was a great friend and a great guy. I couldn’t help falling for him.

“Can I try to make it up to you?”
I smirk. “How?”
“A lifetime supply of cookies and lemonade.”
“That’s pretty tempting…”

What do we know about him?

Favorite color? Silver. Favorite band? Led Zeppelin. Favorite vacation? A cross-country trip with his dad to the Grand Canyon. Mustard or mayo? Ketchup. Birthday? December 1.”

#1: He is a good football player:

“One touchdown for Higgings,
Three for Henry,
He’s an awesome wide receiver”
#2: He is funny:
“He catches the ball, spikes it, and does this really stupid dance. Henry looks like a freaking ballerina. […] I’m gonna give him hell for his dance.”
#3: He is plain honest:
“Just keep wearing those shirts” he says with a wink.”He’ll notice those boobs for sure”
#4: He’s a good friend:
I smack him upside the head.
“Damn it,” he exclaims, laughing. “Stop beating me up. Look, I’m gonna tell you something, because you’re my best friend. Underneath that crazy knot you call hair, all us know you’re really a girl, and we want you to be happy.”
#5: He is cute:
“I love how when we sleep head-to-toe he always finds a way to sleep head-to-head”.
#6: He’s caring and sweet:
“For what it’s worth,” Dad says, “I’ve never seen anyone run faster than Henry after you hurt your knee last week”

#1: He is a bit of a man-whore:
“Is there one girl at this school he hasn’t been with?” Ty asks, nodding at Henry.
“Good question”
#2: He acts like a kid sometimes:
“After practice, I try to catch Henry before he drives off, but he leaves without saying anything. Leaning up against my truck, I pull out my cell and dial his number, but he doesn’t answer.”

So, why Chace Crawford?

I know that many of you thought that Chace would make a great Ty, but even though Chace doesn’t have green eyes and curly hair, there’s something in his cute smile that reminds me of Henry. So, for my Jordan i think that he is the perfect Henry.

See all my Book Boyfriends here!
Happy midnight dreams, girls!

    Oooh I really want to read this one. Henry sounds great, and I could totally picture Chace from what you’ve posted. BTW, LOVE your Christmas design and am obsessed with that little light switch. So clever! lol

    • Ari

      Hahaa, thanks for noticing. I really love the theme as well 🙂
      …And I hope that you will like this book when you get to read it.

  • Andra

    I SO need to read this! Henry sounds like an absolute DOLL and anyone whose smile is like Chase Crawford’s, I’m bound to like 🙂

    • Ari

      Absolute doll is the perfect description, LOL. He is really cute, let me know when you read this book, I can’t wait to see if you like it as well.

  • Jennifer Messerschmidt

    I’ve seen the book around but you really made me want to read it! I love the pics! Very cute! I always picture Chace Crawford as one of my book boyfriends, Adrian Ivashkov.

    Check Out My Book Boyfriend!

    • Ari

      Yes, I noticed too that a lot of reviewers have read it the last past days.
      I like it a lot, and I liked the characters (I♥Henry) so I hope that you will enjoy it too.

  • Oh, I love your version! I’m dying to read Catching Jordan and I’ve now officially fallen in love with Henry, without even reading the book. Life is so unfair.

    • Ari

      I know what you mean. I fall as well for most book boyfriends even without reading the books ;))

  • ladyfern910

    I want to read this book now! Henry sounds so awesome and I love Chace Crawford! Great choice!

    Here’s mine: http://feministfairytalereviews.blogspot.com/2011/12/my-book-boyfriend-17-judd-lauren.html

    • Ari

      I like Chace Crawford too. I’ve been waiting to find the perfect character for him, and here it is: Henry ;)) I’m glad that you liked him.

  • Ari!!! I know I’ve told you this before, but I really <3 the way you make your MBB posts! So fun! I love curly hair on a guy, I'd definitely swoon over Henry! Chace seems like a perfect choice.

    • Ari

      Thanks Missie. I have a lot of fun with this meme, and it’s all thanks to you 😉

      I wanted a curly guy for the article, but I couldn’t find the perfect one (they were mostly brunets) and I had Chace in my mind for a while, and some of his pictures matched the scenes from the book (I have an obsession with this). Now I’m in love with my Henry, LOL

  • Autumn Review

    Haven’t read this one yet either!

    • Ari

      You should give it a try, and I hope that you will like it as well 😉

  • Lesley @ My keeper shelf

    • Ari

      I know! That’s when I thought that I really had to read this book. So I should probably thank you, right?
      Thanks 😀

  • *stares* I have been seeing a lot about Catching Jordan and Henry… Think it’s time I had this book on my shelf 😉

    • Ari

      After making you all interested in Henry and his story, I really hope that you will like the book, or else… ;)))

  • Abbeys bookshelf

    I want to read this book so so much! its been on my wishlist for a longgg time.
    Those quotes (especially the good friend won) won me over.
    great pick!

    • Ari

      He was a good friend, sometimes even too good, that’s why I liked him so much.
      ..And then, there was the fact that he was damn funny – the funny quotes were at least half page and I left them out, so you will have to discover them on your own 🙂

  • Nea Barabea

    I still need to read Catching Jordan 😛 But is definitely on my to be reads!! I’ve heard great things about the story, and OMG I see now great things about Henry!! This guy seems nice, and funny 🙂 And Chace Crawford? Ohh my Oh! HE is gorgeous!

    • Ari

      I thought about it too. I think I will when I’ll get enough free time. Thanks for the suggestion.

  • TheBrokenShelf

    Chance Crawford is my book boyfriend for … crap I forgot what book I pictured him as. ha ha! I’ll have a post about it. I made it last month and space it out so I could edit it and come up with more book boyfriends. I didn’t realize or know this was a meme! How cool is that?! LOVE this meme!

    • Ari

      Oh, I haven’t done one in such a long time, I miss it. Choosing a book boyfriend, searching for his best lines, finding pictures that matches them.. Good old times! Maybe I’ll get some free time and get back to this someday *sigh*
