Add your name to the linky below and join in the fun! Can't wait to see your choices!


  1. We have a lot of the same ones--glad to see Finn getting some more love. Good call on Will starting a riot. I should have added him to mine!

  2. Oh, you're an ADAM kind of girl, are you now, Alison? ;-) (I think the Raven Boy you're in love with probably says something about your personality. Someone should make a quiz.)

  3. You have so many different responses/books from my list, which is good because it points me toward books I really need to read! And how hard was it to narrow down that "Boy You Wish You Dated In High School" superlative??? So hard!

  4. Allison, lol. I love that you picked like five boys, and that one of them is Adam. I need to read ALL OUR YESTERDAYS if the boy is named Finn, and you liked him. You have fabulous taste in boys.

  5. Adam? I would like to have dated a Raven Boy, but I'm Gansey all the way. Could you imagine giving Adam a birthday or Christmas gift? He'd assume it was a handout. ;)

  6. Great choices, lady! But, I'm with Trace: Gansey would definitely be my choice of the Raven Boys. :-)

  7. I think after The Raven Boys I would have said Adam, too. But my favorite, favorite scene (that of course made me endlessly sad) in Dream Thieves was between Noah and Blue, and I think in that moment he became my secret favorite. I mean, like I said in my post, there are some problems with his personality (before) and his...most of him (after) but if we could just overcome those, we'd be good.

  8. Oh, Finn! I forgot about him. Definitely boyfriend worthy. And Will. Oh, WILL. (Why'd you go and bring him up and break my heart all over again!?)

  9. I almost picked Finn for my boy I wish I'd dated. Although I probably could've said ALL OF THEM and called it a day.


Yay! I LOVE comments!
