“Recommend A…” is a weekly meme, posted every Monday, hosted over on Chick Loves Lit. It’s a quick, fun and unique way to recommend a book that you love!
Ooohh boy was I so excited for this one!!! Here’s a secret, bad boys are only my most FAVORITE male lead! Especially the brooding, “I’m no good for you” kind! Oh yes! I could really go on and on with this list* but I am going to stick to just one and I really can’t wait to read about the bad boys everyone else is choosing!
My choice is…Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and more specifically, Mr. Darcy from P&P. Classic, I KNOW.
Now, some of you may be wondering why I chose Mr. Darcy when the world has been introduced to Akiva, Silas Dane and a revamped Romeo Montague recently. It’s simple, really. He’s classy and he won my heart from a brooding Mr. Heathcliff back in sophomore year of high school. Sorry, Heath, it’s the moors, I am far to sickly to be chasing you around those. ANYwho, what’s not to love? He’s brooding, arrogant and kinda cocky for a gentleman. Yet he is also smart, and so emotionally detached that it just makes me want to laugh and then kiss his face to make him finally relax a little! Overall, totes swoonworthy and he doesn’t even have to drag me to Hell or turn me into a victim of stockholm syndrome.
Now, dear readers, I leave you with this:
*No seriously I sat here for a ridiculous amount of time trying to decide on just one and I changed my mind probably four times before finally posting.
