So many of you may or may not know this but I’m a writer. TADAAAAA. *Sprinkles glittery confetti on the top of your head and then proceeds to break dance*
I’ve made it my personal goal to write a book a month. And so far I’ve written 9 books in 8 months. —>(and I’m totally not bragging. I’m probably the most legit humblest person you’ll ever meet.)
Buttttttttt yeah, for so long I’ve not wanted to come out and say anything for fear of how it would be perceived but there ya go. It’s out there now.
Anywho, I thought I would dedicate some discussion posts to YOU GUYS because you’re some awesome little bumblebees, –>And because I’m awesome. Pfft. Duh. I’d like to know what you guys most want to see in YA Fantasy Rlamcne. It’s kind of cool because I’m super interested in what you guys have to say. Any overdone cliches? Any things you’re tired of seeing? Today this post is dedicated to:
Swoony guys in YA and NA. *fans self*
CHARACTERISTICS I HEART:
Is it just me or do you guys also tend to do THE SWOON when a guy is a jerk first off but then has this underlying sensitive, soft side WE ALL KNOW is there but he hides it, only becoming his TRUE self around the heroine?
CHARACTERISTICS I DON’T HEART:
I don’t like the whole “dominant-male-and-you’re-my-submissive” thing, A.K.A.: The # 1 one reason I didn’t read/appreciate the Fifty Shades of Gray Trilogy, even though my mom obviously ships it. I, in fact, do not.
List of guys I’ve swooned over and why with quotes:
//Book covers transport you to Goodreads//
Daemon Black from the Lux Series.
a jerk. Moody. But there had been brief moments that I’d spent with him—like a nanosecond—when I thought I might have seen the real Daemon. At
least a better Daemon. And that part made me curious. And the other side, the jerky one, yeah, that part didn’t make me curious.
It sort of excited me.”
(Like obvi, you KNEW I had to put him on here.) *winks at you* I love Daemon because he was your all around jerk with that special soft center that we got to witness as the sure went on. Don’t get me wrong, he was still that lovable jerk we all love to hate but…. he made up for it.
Jag Jensen from True Love Series.
“I’ll say this much, I’m not going to lose her and I’ll fight to get her back. But the time for that is not now, so I’ll wait.”
For those of you that have been following my blog for some time, you’ll know how much I loved this series and it mostly
all had to do with Mr. Jag Jensen, who just so happens to be a baseball player. (I mean, who doesn’t swoon over a character who is a friggin’ baseball player??) Errr… in which case you DON’T and this will be totally awkward. So much so that we can’t be friends no more. Sorry. I am unrelenting in my decision to defriend you. Pfft. I totally kid. You can still be friends with me.
Chris Knight from The Shattered Hearts Series.
“How can you still love me after everything I’ve done to you?” “How can I not? You’re the fucking love of my life. You don’t stop loving someone just because they’ve hurt you. Yes, what you did hurt me, but I gain nothing if I stay angry with you. But I might gain everything by forgiving you. You’re my everything. I just want you back.”
This series destroyed me. Cassia Leo is an artist at the keyboard, notebook, or whatever she uses to write with. I would just love to sit there and stare at her wrote and work her magic so I can learn from her. –》Not weird at all. –》Yes really. But Chris Knight, he was THE FREAKING LEAD SINGER IN A BAND. Sooooo, obviously I ship him. But surprisingly enough, I still swooned up and down over him even though he wasn’t a jerk. He was compassionate, sweet, and okay, yes…he was kind of a jerk sometimes. But IDC. IDC AT. ALL. I WANTS HIM. I HAS TO HAVE HIM.
So those were my swoony guys with more to come if I’m lucky. Soooo, as promised I need your help. Can I ask you guys to do me a teeny, tiny favor, por favor?. Pfft. Of course I can. And you will do it. Because you love me. I hope. I have below, a small poll for you guys to take. So poll away because I’m really interested in what you guys have to say and to know more about your thoughts on this!
You guys ROCK! Thanks for taking the time time for answering this quick survey. It means a lot and your opinion deff matters to me! ♡ –>in which case you didn’t do my survey which…..SHAME ON YOU. SHAME ON YOUR COW! (Teehee that totally came from the movie Mulan so I’m just quoting here…unless you in fact DO have a cow which makes this awkward.) *backs away slowly*
Alsoooo, if you guys come across anything weird, or a good idea for a story, or anything interesting wellllll, THAT IS A GINORMOUS DEAL. AND I KIND OF NEEDS TO KNOW THESE THINGS. —>not yelling. When/if you do come across these things, connect with me on social media!
Over to you…eh… again:
Anything else you guys would like to add to my list ADD AAAAWWAAYY! 🙂 Can’t wait to read your thoughts! What characteristics in a guy make you swoon? Which ones turn you off? Any swoon recommendations?
