My Book Boyfriend {#2} Tod from Soul Screamers

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie over atThe Unread Reader! Go check it out now! I want to hear all about your book boyfriend! 
In honour of the release coming up of the 5'th book in the Soul Screamers series ('If I Die'), which I am anxiously awaiting... I give you Tod. Tod is my favourite character in the series, even though he isn't exactly a main character and doesn't get nearly enough scenes. BUT I AM STILL ROOTING FOR HIM AND KAYLEE TO HOOK UP! I'd happily stand in her place though!

Let's get to know Tod, shall we? 

  • Curly blonde hair.
  • He is a GRIM REAPER
  • He can teleport wherever he wants!
  • He delivers pizza on the side.
  • He's excellent at spying. 
  • He's funny and sarcastic.

“Just FYI, in your case, I think it’s okay to fear the reaper.” 

I'm casting Andrei Schipanov as Tod. Yes, he's a Russian actor and Tod is American, but I need an excuse to use Andrei. Andrei is breathtakingly sexy, OK????? 

“Now if you’ll excuse me, Death waits for no man. Except me.”

“So,would you say I’m closer to a zombie or a vampire? I gotta know—are my parts going to rot and fall off, or am I forever frozen in youthful perfection?” 

I think you'll be happy to hear.... THAT ALL OF HIS PARTS ARE INTACT. As far as I know! Which isn't far enough. :(

 “I got swirling eyes and the capacity to shatter windows with my bare voice. Tod got teleportation and invisibility. The supernatural world is so far from fair.” 

“Then strong, warm arms wrapped around me from behind. "I've got you," Tod whispered in my ear.”  

Oh sigh. I love book boyfriends! 


  1. Liza, I love book boyfriends too! They're perfect!

    And I'll be TEAM TOD with you! :)

    Glad you found an excuse to use Andrei. Clever girl.

  2. I've only read the first book in this series so far and Tod was one of my favorite parts of it! I always love the underdog/bad boy when it comes to books. They're my weakness! And Tod was just so hot and bad. I love the actor you picked for him. I've never heard of him before, but he fits the character well!

  4. I haven't read this series but that last quote was breathtaking. Swoon!

  5. @Missie Woohoo! I love Tod! And Andrei! ;D

    @Kristan You should definitely continue reading! The second book wasn't that hot, but the series improves a lot! And I'm still holding out hope for Tod and Kaylee! ;D

    We don't want his parts falling off!

  9. My month's audible credits come up this week - I'm planning on catching up on the Soul Screamers series, since you've given me hope things improve. :) LOVE Tod.

  10. I haven't started this series but lately with the new book coming out, it's been getting quite the buzz and getting me excited to pick it up!! Especially if they have this gorgeous guy as a character;DD

    lol @ "I'd happily stand in her place though!" don't we all just want to take places of heroines in books sometimes? and not for innocent reason;D

    Great post:D

    -thank you&come again.

  11. Aww I love Tod. I'm really looking forward to the 5th book as well!!

    @Jacinda They're really good! Me too! I love Tod and pizza! It's the perfect combo! ;D

    @BJ Ooohh!!! Can't wait to see what you think! :D

    @Racquel Definitely pick it up! It's a good series! And really original in the paranormal scene, I think! ;D YES! It's a good thing I'm not a character in books because I'd definitely star in plenty of steamy scenes with a variety of book boyfriends! Bwuahaha!

    @Ashley Me too! Tod > Nash! At least for me! :) Ugggh! The 27th can't come quick enough! :)

  13. Oohh! I want to be Team Tod too! I have the first two books in this series at home waiting to be read and I can't wait! I love that zombie/vampire quote LOL.

  14. Oh man! I so need to read this book! I love his snark!!! I know I would be so with you on this team.

  15. Ooh! I think I'm gonna be rooting for Tod too when I read these books!

  16. Liza, Liza, Liza...you are not alone my friend! Todd is one of the only characters I really like from those books. He is the one I most remember. I couldn't actually remember the names of the other characters until I just read them above, LOL!

    That second to last quote IS my favorite! Life really is never fair! :D
