YA Boys: The Good and Bad Eggs...

Trish started it. Khy followed her. Jordyn followed them.
I am following all of them after some deep-thought.
I know everyone expects me to put up 5 of my favorite YA boys.
I'm sorry, tonight Im not a stickler for rules.
Tonight I make my own.
Although I dont have all the last names I am going to post this and then update it tomorrow!
And the reasons I like them will be here tomorrow too.


Technically he should be #1 on the likes list, but then, my rules, and I say that HE CANT BE ON A LIST. Because in my book he's above 'em all.

The One: Harry Potter

Reason: He's Harry Potter. 'Nuff said.

And now the list begins...

  1. Eli Stock- Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen
  2. Will Wagner- Avalon High by Meg Cabot
  3. Nash- Waiting For You by Susane Colasanti
  4. Peter Camp- The Key To The Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson
  5. Michael Moscowitz- Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot
  6. Cameroon Quick - Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
  7. Tobey Beller - When It Happens by Susane Colasanti
  8. Dexter Jones- This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
  9. Jordan Richman - Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt
  10. Adam - If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  11. Christopher Maloney - Airhead series by Meg Cabot
  12. James Worther - Take Me There by Susane Colasanti
  13. James - Audrey,Wait! by Robin Benway
  14. Sam - Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
  15. Gavin Sewell, Earl of Blackmoor -The Season by Sarah MacLean
UPDATE: I forgot to add Spencer Martin- Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson.

I will post the explanations later..
Now the dislikes...this was quite easy..

  1. Edward Cullen- Twilight by Stephanie Myers.
  2. Jacob Black- Twilight by Stephanie Myers
  3. Jackson Clarke- The Boyfriend List (Ruby Oliver series) by E. Lockhart.
  4. Eric - Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
  5. John Paul Abernathy Reynolds III - Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot

And this concludes my list weird as it may be,..
Let it be known that I labored over this post for many hours..
Here is photographic evidence to prove it.

My post-its hard at work.


My stack of books to cross-reference.

Well I hope you enjoyed this post.
Let me know what you think and make your own and link back to it here!

Take care,


  1. I love how you posted the evidence :) Clearly I need to log more hours with the Dessen boys! I am going to have to linkitylink this post and cross to it. But I have to say right now I have Nick from Demon's Lexicon on the brain...

  2. Obviously I am in total agreement with your #1 choice. I like the rest of the list, too! Also, I should have added Jackson Clarke to my unfavorites list. He's a jerk.

  3. LOL! I love your proof. Mine took like 30 seconds. :)

    1) Peeta – (Hunger Games)
    2) Edward (Twilight)
    3) Jace (Cities of ...)
    4) Zane (Pretties/Specials) *sniff*
    5) Brian (Dairy Queen Series)

    (if I could have a #6, it would be Freddie from The Season)

  4. Agreed. Enough with Edward already! He is over-rated.

  5. I know almost no one on your likes list except Dexter and I wasn't a big fan. However I totally agree with Eric going on the dislikes. Total idiot. Anyone who messes with Scarlett Martin messes with me! I really didn't want him and her to even end on a nice note, I wanted her to just find this other perfect guy. High hopes for Scarlett Fever I guess!

  6. Sarah Dessen writes great boys! But reading this made me realize that I pay way more attention to the girls in YA lit than the boys. Although I do totally have a crush on one of my main characters in another project I'm writing.

  7. I love your list! Harry Potter is just... well you know!
    Eli, Dexter, Cameron, and Tobey! All wonderful boys of YA.

    I agree with you on Edward and Eric.

  8. That's way more than five! xD

    But yay for Tobey, Dexter, Adam, and Gavin! Love them all. AND ESPECIALLY SPENCER <33

    And I agree with all your dislikes, except #5 since I've never read the Princess Diaries. xD Jackson is UGH. Him in Treasure Map just made me MAD. xD
