Welcome to Thoughts for Thursday! This feature is our outlet to talk with you about whatever we currently have on our minds. It might be bookish, it might not! Now for this week's thought:
I Love A Bad Boy
Yes, it's true. It seems that it's always the bad boys that I'm most attracted to in books. The ones that have that devil-may-care attitude and aren't always on their best behavior. Adrian Ivashkov from The Vampire Academy series might be my first bad boy crush. And Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses might be my latest. I swooned over both of these boys more than I did the actual love interest. I just find them so damn sexy.
But before I keep going, let me say that there is a difference between a bad boy and an asshole. The latter, I do NOT love (or even like). Those damaged types that treat girls like crap and justify their behavior away later can go to hell.
Now why do I like the bad ones? Maybe it's that opposites really do attract and I'm drawn to the fact that they are everything I'm not (hah). Or maybe it's because I love a challenge or that they are a mystery that needs to be solved. Maybe society has ruined me and I think I (but really the main character) will be the one to change them. I have no idea. It's even possible that I don't love them at all but only think that I do because they make the books I read so much fun and I miss them when they are not there. The point is, I can't get enough.
I will still love and swoon over the sweet, nerdy or just boy-next-door guys (like Max from The Start of Me and You) but I'm likely going to choose the rebellious, fun, trouble-causing types. Give me Sturmhond over Mal any day. ;)
So tell me, what's your type? Do you like bad boys like I do?
