Alice from The Reader Room Shares Her Top 5 YA Crushes

The second part of my guest post posting spree! 

Welcome to my blog, Alice! I asked Alice to come up with a list of five, and she picked the same type of list as Cicely did - although with different men/boys. So without further ado, let's see who Alice picked, shall we?

1. Alex from Perfect Chemistry
Why? Um can anyone say sexy? He is a God. I was reading that book and swooning like bad. I may have slightly hyperventilated a few times. You know...as you do *looks around* Yeah. Anyway. He is just a sexy beast and I would not mind having him as my chemistry teacher ;) Enough of the sexiness. He is a sweetie pie too which is super important. A bad boy too. HEAVEN. [ITA. He is definitely a God. Why can't there be an Alex Fuentes in my Chemistry class? *pouts*]

2. Ezra Fitz from Pretty Little Liars
I love him. He is so intellectual and smart and cute and sexy all rolled into one. I love smart guys. Definitely a positive for me. I will admit that the show may have swayed me slightly because he is so damn not. Vain I know. He has a fabulous personality in addition though so it is all round yumminess. [I've never read the books, but I do rather like the actor who plays Ezra in the TV show! *swoon*]

3. Eli from Along For The Ride
A brooding mysterious boy. Say no more. He is so deep and meaningful and just all round amazing. I could have picked every one of Sarah Dessen’s love interests as they are all so great. They all make fab boyfriends.

4. Dash from Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares
So intellectual. Can you tell I like my super smart (super edgy) boys? He is so mysterious and I love that. I’m definitely crushing on him.

5. Michael from Some Girls Are
I think he is great. Not because he is especially sweet or intelligent or wonderful. Just because he is so real. Him and Regina’s relationship was perfect yet flawed. He is definitely someone I would like because of his honesty and his realness.
Great list, Alice! Alex Fuentes is a popular choice today, isn't he? I'm over the moon! *happy dance* I love Alex. I've never actually read any of the other books, so can't share my opinions on them. But I think Alice told us enough about them! I must say, though, I do love the sound of Eli. 

Thanks for your list, Alice! It's definitely made me interested in reading more of Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, as well as Along For The Ride! Yet more books to add to my wishlist (I see you're returning the favour this time, haha).

I hope you all enjoyed Alice's list as much as I did. Make sure you go over to The Reader Room and look through Alice's blog posts!


  1. haha! I definitely think it is payback time after all the books you persuaded me to read, buy (and love!) Isn't Mr Fitz the sexiest beast ever! What a cutie! Thank you for having me!

  2. The funny thing is, I don't regret it at all :D I shall continue to persuade you *nods*

    He definitely is sexy. I need to catch up with this series, to see some more of Fitz. <3

    Oh, you're welcome! De nada, as Mr Fuentes would say ;)

  3. I love Dash so much too! Completely forgot about him! And Alex...
    I haven't read any of the others, but they all sound great! And guess who finally knows which Sarah Dessen book she's going to read first ;p

  4. The only one of those guys I'm familiar with is Dash, and I found the characters in that book so obnoxious that I couldn't even finish it! I mean, I like smart guys... but pretentious ones are a turn-off.

  5. La Coccinelle - I started reading Dash & Lily's Book of Dares.. and that's exactly what put me off the book as well. I'm going to give it another go eventually, but only because Alice and some others love it so much.

    I don't mind arrogant guys, but I agree - obnoxious and pretentious characters are not so great.

  6. MR FITZ! LOVE him <3 And I think I've fallen in love with *everyone* in Sarah Dessen's books..

  7. Ooh! Dash is definitely a nice pick. I approve.

  8. l haven't actually read any of these books yet! I need to read Perfect Chemistry series!

  9. I feel so dated with my choices. I have only read one book from Cicely's list. They are all so modern. Cicely you must tell me which Sarah Dessen books you are reading first!

  10. I was gonna go for Along for the Ride. Eli sounds awesome! Gotta love me some all round amazing ;p Either that or This Lullaby... :D

  11. I've read only Perfect Chemistry but I think I missed something as I didn't like the book nor Alex. But after finding him in very list around, I definitely missed something.

  12. Jodie - You *haven't* read Perfect Chemistry? :o You must go and read it immediately! It's amazing, and I only know of one person who didn't like it.

    Violet - It's a shame you didn't like it :( But I it obviously can't appeal to everyone. Is there a reason why you didn't like Alex? :)
