Flaws are beautiful, it's what makes us human.
I mean, sure the guys these days have flaws like, oh I don't know, being a vampire (which involes hotness and super strength) or being a fallen angel or being a werewolf, or being a supernatural creature of some sort. Where are the nice flaws? Maybe I'm being blind or something, but I see none.
There is one book, where the male protagonist has flaws, nice flaws. He doesn't forgive easily. Joe from The Sky is Everywhere!
He's cold near the end, almost cruel and harsh towards to female. Yeah, that's what other male protagonists may seem, but he's verrry cold.
But anyways, help? Can you argue with me, because perfect male characters bother me and I really want to be wrong in this "argument"
What Aren't Good Guys Attractive?
I always ask that question when I read. Maybe it's because "good" guys are light and playful and are never serious, when "bad" guys are serious and never play around and are all tough. Do girls find that attractive? I mean, when I read books like that, I pick the bad guy, because more is said on the "bad guy" than the good guy. Then again, there is no good and evil. Mostly, it's a mix of faults Anyhoo, that's only in paranormal, I think. Only when there's two guys and one girl. I'm just curious, what do you think?
Best Friend or Hot Guy?
This kind of ties in with the last one. Which do you think would win? More often, it's the hot guy. Is this sending some sort of bad signal to teenagers?
"If one starts in a B-Minor, then one ends in a B-Minor" Artemis Fowl
That doesn't apply to books. In narrative essays, a nice conclusion is to restate the thesis statement, to tie back to the beginning.
To my thrill, there's almost always a kiss at the end of YA novels (sequels more often I think), but rare are the books that tie back to the beginning, that bring the readers home.
Tie back= single novels
This is a weird, rather long post. Sorry. But my main question is:
What do you look for in a good book? (preferrably YA)
