#YABkLove Day 17: Hottest Heroes #MCM

#YABkLove Day 17

Time to gush on the most crush worthy guys in YA novels. Who is your #MCM (Man Crush Monday) from a book that you can recall? Now, the standards are up to you. These can be dorky guys that steal your heart with sweetness like Levi in Fangirl or tough guys that fight alongside their ladies. It could be an evil guy you can’t resist like The Darkling in Shadow and Bone or a a jerk with a heart of gold like Ronan in Raven Boys. 

So tell us, what is your favorite?

#YABkLove Day 5: #Pride

#YABkLove Day 5

Since we are starting this just following Pride month I hope some people have some great recommendations for all types of books of LGBTQIA representation. I am so woefully under-read in this area and I need you guys to school me, please! Especially in the #ownvoices arena!

dream thieves

This first character coming to mind (of course it isn’t #ownvoices) is Ronan in The Raven Chronicles series. Dream Thieves is a major favorite of mine because of how it told his story of coming to terms with his own abilities as a dream thief and his love for his best friend. The book is bookend, so to speak, with Ronan’s three secrets and the writing style worked perfectly for me.

carry on

I also so much love Baz from Carry On. He is a mess in his love/hate for Simon. I wanted to squish their faces together. I listened to this book on audio and I made it to a very famous chapter and ended up sitting it my car longer once I got home from work in order to hear it to the end.
