I do write teen novels, after all ;-)
It is a sad but true fact that when I read a novel, I invariable develop a crush on a certain character while reading it. *SIGH* This applies to good television shows as well.
Hey, there are some great YA books (and shows) out there!
By now, I am SO over Edward Cullen and Stephan Salvatore. Vamps are SO last year ;-)
Here are some new crushes I've developed in the last year:
1. Baker boy, Peeta from THE HUNGER GAMES series (book #3 hurry and come) by Suzanne Collins:
2. Colt from THE SECRET YEAR by Jennifer R. Hubbard.
3. Cabel from the Wake series (still need to read book #3) by Lisa McMann.
4. Kent from BEFORE I FALL by Lauren Oliver:
By the way, I just finished reading this book this weekend.
I cried my eyes out and am still thinking about the ending.
I didn't like the MC at the beginning of the book, but grew to love her at the end. Here's the blurb, from Amazon:
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?
Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot.
Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last.
Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact.
Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
5. And lest you think I only go for sweet, nerdy boys, I also have a THANG for bad boy Puck,
(Mark Salling) from GLEE!
In my defense, he's like almost 30 in real life, but plays a seventeen-year-old on the show!
Who is your crush? If not from a book, then how about a series?
