The Good and Bad YA Boys

So Khy, Kelsey, Adele, Jordyn and Trish Doller all had great posts about their favorite YA boys and not-so-favorite ones. I liked the idea and decided to create my own list. (Note: I didn't use an author more than once. Otherwise a few other characters would have been mentioned)

The Top 5.

1.Kartik (Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray).
I love Kartik. He always shows up out of the blue and he's sort of dark and mysterious in the beginning. Plus him and Gemma is so gosh darn cute! But we're not going to discuss that topic because I will cry. (why Kartik WHY?)

2. Ronald Weasley (Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling).
Ron has a magic wand, is scared of spiders, and is the reason for Wizard Rock. Need I say more?

3. Owen Armstrong (Just Listen by Sarah Dessen).
Owen is amazing. And he is a music nerd. The end.

4. Quentin Jacobsen (Paper Towns by John Green)
This was a very hard choice. The truth is, I have a thing for all the Green boys, MC or not. But I had to choose and because I love the quote at the end about the broken cracks in the vessel, I chose Q. Plus his name starts with a Q.

5. Magnus Bane (The Immortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare).
Magnus Bane. I love that he is so forward about his love and that he is a warlock and he makes fun of Alec's wardrobe. He is just awesome.

Boo. Hiss. The Bad 5.

1. Edward Cullen (Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyers).
I don't find a guy who sticks his mouth into animals and sucks their blood appealing. Seriously, go call PETA.

2. Mr. Wickham (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen).
This one is pretty obvious. He is the ultimate gold digger.

3.Masimo (Georgia Nicolson Series by Louise Rennison).
I am such a Dave the Laugh fan. But we all are (I didn't put him up there because he's probably only 6 or 7 on that list). And Masimo doesn't even understand what Georgia says! Or get her humor. He is quite annoying.

4. Steve (Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson).
I do not approve of Steve. I mean, why would you still like a guy that cheated on you? And barely tries to keep up a relationship?

5. Prince Gregor (The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry).
There's nothing really wrong with Gregor, he just seems kind of blah.

So, who's in your Top 5? Your Bad 5? Post in the comments or on your blog.

There is no one I despise more than Edward Cullen. He's creepy and controlling. I'm not sure I can think of 5 guys for either list. Girls, though, I have several.

I do love Percy Jackson because he's funny and is smart enough to know he doesn't have time for angst while he's trying to save the world. So many guys in the Harry Potter world have my heart. Neville "The Ultimate Badass" Longbottom, most of all. How is Ron the reason for Wizard Rock?

Okay, well he isn't the only reason, but he is a character in HP, which led to Wizard Rock... And I was debating putting Ron, Lupin, or Neville as a fave.

You could do a girl list, if you wanted. I'm not sure who I would put so I don't think I'll do one.

And seriously, Masimo should just go away. No one in on Team Masimo.
