For some reason I’m always drawn to the bad boy…in books. I love the guy who pretends not to care, but deep down inside, cares too much. The guy who starts out as the biggest douche bag and ends up being the bravest hero.
Damon from The Vampire Diaries.
Warner from Shatter Me.
Daemon from the LUX series.
Y’know. The boys with the most misunderstood, but best intentions. (Also, for *some reason* these types of boys always end up in the books I write… :P)
There’s just something about a person who puts off a tough exterior, but is truly sensitive deep inside. Mm, maybe sensitive is the wrong word. Caring? Heroic? You get the idea.
Also, fun fact (and *spoiler alert* for Shatter Me series): I almost didn’t finish the Shatter Me series until I saw someone post on Instagram #teamwarner and I was like WHAT? So of course I had to pick it back up again, and now Ignite Me (book 3 in the Shatter Me series) is one of my YA faves. 🙂
QOTP: What theme/types of characters are YOU drawn to in books?
