I'll be honest with you...the heat may have melted my brain slightly. I'm having trouble putting words together. So...if this post doesn't make much sense, blame mother nature. I'm doing my best here.
A few days ago, we talked about the strong female characters we love. Now it's time for those bad boys. You're stuck with just me for this one. No Darian on this post. Wow, am I sorry about that. I'm telling you, it's rough over here. You should see how sad our dinner was tonight. I couldn't even put that together...it looked like I was back in college again. But...I digress.
I have to say, I'm either getting old or I'm just flipping tired. There's only one bad boy stuck in the front of my brain. I can't shake him and nothing else is popping up quite as well. Seriously? I can only come up with one character for this post? Even worse, I think that the only reason I can even come up with this one may be because I only recently read the last book in the series. I'm telling you...this heat...
So...who's my favorite bad boy? Well, he's not really all that bad...but I love him anyway...
Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare.
Ah, dark and brooding Will. Yup, I love him. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have a bit of a crush on this character. The dark hair, the aloof attitude. I just loved him more and more as the series went on. Ya...Jem is the sensitive guy and I know the story kind of pushes you to want to feel for him, but...nah. Not my thing. I like Will. I've been a Will girl since day one. It's kind of like Twilight. Most were either Team Edward or Team Jacob. I was Team Will from the start, just like I was always Team Jacob. (I do concede that the story needed Edward to be the guy for Bella, but Rob Pattinson solidified that Edward is just not my type. Nope.)
I'm trying to come up with a name to go with a face. It's not going well. I have this picture of Will in my head, but I cannot for the life of me figure out who it was that I had in mind for my perfect pick to play him in the rumored upcoming movie.
Did you know about that by the way? Yes...City of Bones is slated to come out shortly, but a movie version of The Infernal Devices series is also supposedly in the works. Fantastic! All I know is, if they cast Zac Efron for this role I will beat my head against a wall. He's unfortunately the name coming to mind at the moment (gives you a slight idea of what I think wonderful Will should look like), but I can't stand him and all of his peppy, High School Musical bologna. Don't you dare wreck this for me Zac Efron!
|Quit looking so darned smug.|
Ah, this has taken on a mind of it's own. I think it's time to go back to reading...and maybe have a nice big glass of ice water. This delirium is getting out of hand. Thank goodness today's challenge post is very closely related! My summer fling also works out very well to be Mr. Herondale, thank you very much!
