Character Guest Post + Contest: Alex from Delirium

Lauren Oliver's Delirium blog tour is moving along nicely, settling in on this lovely Wednesday here on my little blog. I have to admit, I am super excited not only to host Lauren, but because today... I get to bring you Alex. Yes, love interest, swoony Alex. Is it really any surprise, though, that I wanted the boy to share? Of course not. So without further ado, and before the contest so you can have your very own Alex filled pages, is a little guest post from Alex himself.

Hey. I’m not really great at talking about myself. Maybe it’s a guy thing? What do you want to know, exactly? Is there a guide for this online. Kidding, kidding. This is just bringing me back to my evaluations is all. What is your favorite color? Green! All that kind of stuff.

I like living in Portland okay. It could be worse. I like the parks, and I like the shoreline a lot. Spend a lot of time down at Casco Bay, and by the Old Ports; when I’m done working at the labs I like to walk around the old cobblestone streets. Sometimes I just sit by the water, in the sun, for hours at a time. I think maybe I was a cat in a past life.

The life story is pretty straightforward. You can see all my details in the official file. Look it up with SVS—no point in my rehashing everything. Just your average, run-of-the-mill guy. I’ve been cured but not paired yet; apparently, they’ve had trouble finding a perfect match for me. If I had to say what she would be like…well, I don’t know. I’ve always felt it’s more the little things…the sound of a person’s laugh, the way she wrinkles her nose when she’s thinking, the habits and quirks. Weird preferences. Loving asparagus or hating peaches or whatever. Enjoying the sound of rain, getting freaked by the wind. That kind of thing. But you can’t test for that, can you?

*Dreamy sigh* Thank you, Alex, for stopping by.

  8. Oh Alex, you make me swoon. I'm considering running along with Mrs. DeRaps up to Old Port because every time I've gone to Portland, you were nowhere to be found. But I wasn't looking then, so maybe next time you'll be there!
