Top 5: YA Boys

Trish Doller did it here. Jordyn, Khy and I got talking. So I we are all doing it. Could it possibly become a meme? It's up to you I suppose. Here goes:

5: Clay Jensen - Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Because I loved reading his story through his mind and he seems like a fantastic guy and person; someone I would love to meet. He seems genuine.

4: Simon Something-or-other - The Mortal Instruments Trilogy by Cassandra Clare

I actually JUST finished reading this series, uh, THIS MORNING. Maybe it's because it's still fresh in the brain or something, but Simon rocked. He just simply rocks.

3: Spencer Martin - Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

I couldn't have said it as good as Khy did: "He's not the romantic lead of the book, but who cares?! He's Spencer. He's hilarious and completely adorable." dittodittoditto

2: Jonah Griggs - Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

I loooooooovedlovedloved Jellicoe Road and Jonah was sooooo great. I just can't find a way NOT love him.

1: Owen Armstong - Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

Owen has, and always will, own the top place in this list and my heart. (Cheesy, I know.)

Now, the YA Boys that I seriously have trouble knowing WHY they are so hyped up about. ( No order)

1: Edward Cullen - Twilight Saga


2: Wes - The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

He is just so, gah. He bothers me.

3: Nate - Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen

I do not find anything special about him. Not saying he's bad, but just, what's the appeal?

4: Cabel - Wake & Fade by Lisa McMann

I like him, but again, what is the appeal? I just don't see it.

5: Damen - Evermore by Alyson Noel

Damen was perfect. Too perfect. WAY too perfect. He's just, ugh.

Now it's your turn. Go go go go go go. Link it!


  1. I'm definitely with you on Cabel. And my daughter said she didn't like Damen, either.

  2. I don't see the appeal on Cabel, like really, I though he was just a freak of nature, and over protector.

  3. I wouldn't say Cabel is a leading guy in YA for me. But I think it's the way he cares for Janie, and the fact that he is a protector to her that is appealing. :) Also, it seems girls like damaged goods or something lol.

    I haven't read Jellicoe Road and now I want to :P

  4. Ahhh I picked Jonah too - he's delish! I completely agree with Damen - he makes me zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  5. I love both Simon and Jace in the Mortal Instruments series...they're both just so amazing!

  6. I like your choices! But I thought Wes was cute in Truth About Forever, and Owen was just okay.
    But I might be mixing them up. =))

    (PS> Team Bunny!)

  7. I like Wes, Cabel, and JONAH!! Jonah is the best!
    But I'm also a huge fan of Jace from Mortal Instruments, Dexter from This Lullaby and Po from Graceling!


  8. I agree with Jonah! But what's with all the Simon fans? Umm Jace. And Owen? Meh. Wes is just adorable- and the fact that he plays Truth. Owen never did anything for me. I love Clay though. :) Great list!

    - Alex

  9. Can I ad another to the "yuck" boys? Luke, from the Evernight series. The boy has a violent temper and I don't trust him one bit.

  10. I preferred Wake Cabel to Fade Cabel. Can't comment on the Dessen Boys. But what about Nick? Demon's Lexicon Nick? And I have to confess I'm a Jace, not a Simon...

    Love this post! Will have to linkitylink :)

  11. Wes?!?!?! I love him. ;D I think I may do this on my blog as well.

  12. I have to admit, I love love love Cabel. And Wes. And Jace! (ok, and Edward).

  13. All the boys from Mortal Instruments are awesome! That book is awesome!

  14. Awesome list: I loooove Simon in the Mortal Instruments series!

  15. I love Owen too! I agree about Damon, but not about Nate. I like him :)


Good? Bad? Ugly? I don't care as long as you tell me!
