Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Young Adult Boys

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week's topic is Top Ten Favorite Characters in X Genre, which I'm going to turn in to:

Ten of my Favorite Young Adult Boys!
(This, obviously, is not a complete list. I've also tried to add some variety. I feel like my lists are all the same)
 
1. Jem from The Infernal Devices -  Maybe if I make my heart break NOW, when I read Clockwork Princess it will hurt a little less, because I just KNOW Cassie is going to rip that organ to  shreds.
 
Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)
 
"His beauty did not blaze like Will's did in fierce colors and repressed fire, but it had its own muted perfection, the loveliness of snow falling against a silver gray sky.” 
 
2. Park from Eleanor & Park -  set to be published on 2/26/13. I think after reading this book Park will be a lot of people's favorite.

3. Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door

4. Will from Slammed and Point of Retreat - Another one of those lovable boys-next-door.

"I've learned something about my heart. It can break. It can be ripped apart. It can harden and freeze. It can stop. Completely. It can shatter into a million pieces. It can explode. It can die. The only thing that made it start beating again? The moment you opened your eyes."
 
5. Roger from Amy & Roger's Epic Detour - I wouldn't mind going on a cross-country road trip with this guy.

 “Perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring."
I smile. "You don't think I'm perfect?"
"No. You're delightfully screwy, and I wouldn't have you any other way.”


6. Roar from Under the Never Sky, Roar & Liv, and Through the Ever Night - I fell for Roar whilst reading the short in between novella.  His humor and passion and heart and fierce protection of the ones he loves makes him a favorite.

7. Sean from The Scorpio Races

8. Miles (a.k.a Pudge) from Looking for Alaska - funny and endearing and awkward and intelligent.

"It is worth it to leave behind my minor life for grander maybes."

9. Puck from The Iron Fey series - I'm not going to lie. Ash started off as my favorite. And I do think he's a better fit for Meghan (not that I'm saying that's who ends up with her). But after reading one of the novellas and The Iron Knight, Puck found a place in my heart. Let's face it, I'm a sucker for a boy who can make me laugh.  I want a spin-off series focused around his character. PLEASE JULIE.

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fey, #2)The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4)
The Iron Legends (The Iron Fey, #1.5, 3.5, 4.5)

10. Dimitri from the Vampire Academy series - I tried for variety, I really did. But this boy-man keeps invading my brain. He can protect me any day.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Frostbite (Vampire Academy, #2)Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)
Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)
(IF ONLY these covers didn't SUCK SO FREAKING MUCH!)
