Book Girls Don't Cry... They Vent! (3) Bad Boys

 

This week the topic was chosen by Mel of The Daily Prophecy and it was Bad Boys!! I love this topic. I get a little ranty and it's like 11 minutes long. I am so, so sorry for making such a long vlog. You know how I get rambling and stuff. The end is super funny when my daughter comes up with two naked boy barbies and puts them in front of the camera!! I busted out laughing!! Even if you don't watch the vlog, you should totally skip to the end and see that!!

We will be posting as follows:
 
Jenni @ Alluring Reads - Mondays (YouTube Channel)
Giselle @ Xpresso Reads - Thursdays/Fridays (whichever works best) (YouTube Channel)
Amy (Me) @ Book Loving Mom - Saturdays (YouTube Channel)
 
This weeks posts from the other BGDC girls:
 
 
My Thoughts on Bad Boys!
 
  
I almost used the thumbnail with the naked barbies, that would have rocked!! 
Bad Boys I love

Daemon from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pax from If You Stay by Courtney Cole
Noah from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
Dante from The Collector by Victoria Scott
Will from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
Jace from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

Bad Boys that make me get all ranty! 
(I might get some nasty comments for some of these)

Will from Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook - Tempers and mental abuse, not okay!! 
Jude from Crash by Nicole Williams *hides behind shield* - Dude needs to get his temper and possessiveness under control. 
Cole from the Everneath series by Brodi Ashton *runs away* - He's a manipulative, evil, emotion draining jerk.
Seth from the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout *Barricades the door* - I just don't get it. He is only looking out for himself! He's a jerk!!
Morpheus from Splintered by A.G. Howard - He's a manipulative one too. I don't like deceitful people!

So what are your thoughts? Who wants to rage at me for my picks lol!! (Please don't, I still love you guys even if you are team real bad boy.) Let me know in the comments. ;)

  1. I agree with Jude, his temper is OUT OF CONTROL. But I still have a small soft spot for him. I can look past a certain amount of assieness (?) if there is some sort of hard past or whatever. You know? But show some growth and start to get over it already...this is where Jude lacks. :( He doesn't grow up so well.

    1. I am really hoping that Jude learns to control his temper because I don't really think he's bad, but I wouldn't stay with someone like that and it bothers me that she does. If she said, get yourself together and we can see where it goes, that would be different, but she seems to just let it go.

  2. Your picks are good only because I haven't read most of them LOL I want to kill you over Seth! LOVE HIM!!! LOL He is just so much fun where Aiden is so old man boring. And I know he did some bad things BUT he was brought up with no friends or family and Alex just ignored him and never even asked how he was going or about his family or anything. I am holding out faith he might redeem himself. I like all the bad boys you listed except Will. Blah! Only because he is in the way of the wonderfulness that is Jem and also because he was such an idiot with that whole curse thing that I just can't forgive him. I also kind of like Warner now even though he is a bit psychotic hehe But other than that I'm mostly a good boy kind of girl. Some would say Adrian Ivashkov is a bad boy but I disagree so I won't mention him :-D

    1. Haha! I know that I chose some that people will be like "what, he's awesome!!" But I had to lol!! Okay, so I totally love Jem, (but he's not a bad boy so that's why he's not mentioned) butI love will too. He is just so broken and his vulnerability when he lets his guard down just breaks me!! Ugh, I am a little more than half done with Unravel Me and I still don't like Warner. Adam is getting a little too drama queen for me too. Team Kenji!

  3. Daemon! I found him hilarious more than a jerk. I mean he's a total jerk but it's funny! haha. And he's not like, a truly asshole, he's just anti-human and stuff. he's more snarky rather than abusive which is fine!

    Teehee, I showed Nobody But Us without even reading it because of your review! >.< Omg that is sick--pulls her out of the car? Ewww I will never read that book!

    I NEED IF YOU STAY SOON OR SOMEONE DIES!!!

    Ooh I'm reading The Collector soon! I'm so excited I've only heard amazeballs stuff about it!

    I haven't read Crash but I've heard very love/hate reviews on that one.

    btw--I opened a second window and am commenting while I watch! lol

    I <3 Noah! Did you get the sequel on Netgalley? I can't wait for it! And OMG you'd love the Sea of Tranquility! It reminded me a lot of PTL!

    Your daughter is so sweet! I <3 her!!

    OMG! You don't like Cole either? Dude I totally didn't either and Jenni loves him! Let's kick her!

    I haven't read Infernal Devices or the Covenant series yet. I'm not 100% sure about these series actually I hear the covenant series really similar to the VA series and that one is also very loved or hated. And the Infernal Devices well, I'm kind of sick of Cassandra Claire she just doesn't know when to stop while the getting's good you know. I like Jace thoguh! :D I haven't read past the 4th book though--beating a dead horse and all.

    Morpheus! *barf* but you know I actually liked that he didn't LIE about his personality. He was a jerk, he knew it, and that was just who he was. I never liked him as a love interest though--he was more like a villain lol.

    BAHAHAHA BOY BARBIES!! That's epic!!

  4. OMG!! Best comment ever! Dude, I got declined for Dare You To!! I am auto approved for Harlequin US, but apparently Harlequin UK doesn't like me!! Ahhhh I wanted to get If You Stay for you, but it's only on Nook and Kindle. Dude!! The BARBIES!! I think it's so funny how she has them too!! I DIED!!

  5. I like Aiden, but he is just too good to be true and I don't think there is such a perfect guy out there in the real world and even Jen herself has said that. Sometimes he just gets on my nerves with how perfect he is, but I do like him. I LOVE DAEMON! *sigh* He is redeemable. Will, Tessa and Jem break my heart, too! I'm 100% team Will, but at the same time I love Jem so much and I don't want him to get hurt. Noah and Jace are great! I liked Lucas from Easy and KAIDAN ROWE from Sweet Evil, too. Kaidan - sigh, he is just so freaking greay! I like Seth, but I'm not team Seth. I like him, because I have faith that he will do the right thing in the end and hopefully it won't be too late when he does. Another bad boy I like is Ash from Iron Fey series. I'm sorry you don't like Jude that much, but I heard that while he didn't like.. apologize or explain himself and his actions in the first book, then in the second one it's Lucy who acts like a bitch sometimes and Jude is the one you swoon for, because he will fight until his last breath. I still haven't read the sequel though, but as soon as it arrives on my doorstep I'm gonna read it. I think. I liked Pax from If You Stay, but I think he was way out of control sometimes and I didn't found myself loving him the way I was meant to at the end of the book I guess. I love your list though and I hope Jace and Will will get their HEAs :)

    1. I haven't read Easy yet, but I plan on it. I actually have a signed copy of it. I have a signed copy of Clash too. Maybe I will like Jude better when I read it. I loved Ash from Iron Fey, but I never really thought of him as a bad boy. I don't love Kaidan like everyone else seems to. I loved the book, but Kaidan didn't do it for me. I thought he was a jerk. I get why, but dude, man up!! Lol!! I can't wait to read Sweet Peril. I hope that he will make me love him in that one!

      Delete
    2. Bhahahaha @ Kaidan. Yeah, I think he will come back fighting. I hope he does. Easy was really good, I'm certain you'll enjoy it. Signed copies of both of them? Wow! That's awesome!! I think Ash wasn't that much of a bad boy if we think about all of the boys in your list, but I do think he was the bad one out of him and Puck. Puck is my man! I love him so much, but I still wished that Ash and Meghan would get together. I hope Puck gets his happiness with someone else and doesn't stay in the friendzone forever;)

  6. Daemon was more on the ranty list for me but he finally started to grow on me. I'm reading The Collector soon, I cant wait to meet Dante!

    1. I love Daemon because I get why he was a jerk. It wasn't just because he felt like it. I can't wait to see what you think of Dante. He is a total jerk at first. Like really a jerk.

  7. Great vlog! I haven't read most of these, but you definitely made me want to grab the copy of Pushing the Limits I have sitting on my shelf and start reading it immediately!

    And those barbies- wow! I love how you don't see your daughter or anything, they just sneak in from the side.

    1. Pushing the Limits is amazing!! Noah is so swoon worthy. He definitely has some major issues, but is a really good person. My daughter is so funny when I'm doing vlogs. I tell her to play quietly and stay out of the camera and then she just can't help it and sneaks in.

  8. I'm with Candace, Daemon makes me a little rant, too. I do love Jace. Pax is my favorite bad boy right now! I'm a little worried about Jude, but I'm still going to read it b/c Autumn loves it.
    Great vlog!

    1. Pax was so amazing. I loved seeing him change and try to be better. He really is a bad boy to begin with so it makes him that much more swoon-tastic when he wants to be better.

  9. I agree with all of your choices. I still haven't met Jude, but I'm going to stay far far away from him. Possessiveness is not an attractive quality according to me. Yes! I thought I was the only one who didn't like Seth! He was such a dirt-bag! >.<
    I'm going to be meeting Pax soon! So, I'm excited to read his story. And Dante! I've been in love with that guy ever since I read the synopsis. I can't wait to read the book when it comes out.
    Great video, Amy! Your daughter is such a cutie! :)

    1. I am surprised I haven't gotten more rap for putting Jude on the list. A lot of people are big fans of his. I just can't get past his temper, but I've heard that he gets a little better in the next book. I have it so I should probably read it and see. OMG I hope that you love If You Stay!! It's sooo good!!

  10. I agree with you about Cole...I think the only reason he cares about Nikki is b/c she survived the Everneath when other girls didn't. He doesn't love HER, he loves one quality of hers, and he's also just plain evil! But I think the reason so many people like him is b/c the good guy love interest in that book is so blah in comparison. I have the same problem to an even greater extent in Shatter Me. Warner is a murderer and a psychopath, and I just do NOT think it's okay to like him, no matter what an awful childhood he had! But Adam is so bland and Warner is described in such an over-the-top sexy way, I understand why people do...

    1. Yes!! I mean I get that Cole is all sexy and whatnot, but it doesn't change that he's manipulative and only cares about himself. And Warner!!! Okay, so I was nervous because so many people switched teams after reading Unravel Me, but I didn't. I honestly don't really want her with Adam either, but of the two, I would rather him. If only she could touch other people I would be Team Kenji all the way!! Adam is like an over emotional girl in Unravel Me lol!! He starts to drive me crazy!!

  11. Gotta agree with you about Seth from the Covenant series. I have a "little" hope for him at the end of Apollyon but he will NEVER be good enough for Alex.

    Totally love Daemon, Pax, Noah, Dante, Will and Jace.

    As for the rest of your don't like bad boys, I haven't read Jude's, Will's or Morpheus's book yet.

    Great post girl. Way to be brave.

    1. I am hoping that Seth will do the right thing, but like you said, he will never be good enough for Alex. He will never be as good for her as Aiden is even if he wasn't a psychopath God killer. I love hearing everyone's opinions, I am surprised that I didn't get more argument about Cole, Warner, and Jude. I know there are a lot of people who are on their team.

  12. Great vlog! I agree with most of these, especially your Bad Boys I Love list. Noah is my *sigh* Enough said. And Will! My heart cries for him.
    Another "bad boy who isn't bad but damaged and tries to be good" for me is Warren from Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me series. I don't think I've ever read the character of such a bad boy who I still love so much. So evil and yet so...broken. Anyway, fantastic post!

    1. Noah and Will are awesome! I am still not a Warner fan. No matter how much he loves Juliette, I don't believe that he can change who he is. To me he pretty much proved that in Unravel Me. Just because he has his weak moments when it comes to Juliette, he still doesn't care about anyone else.

  13. LOL at least it's written in the post. You are too cute! OMG I can't wait for the barbies!

    Daemon is such a dick, but I like him too! I like him so much. In the second one it was actually Katy that I had a problem with, which was super weird. I still need to read Opal.

    I wanted to like Nobody But Us so bad, it was even one of my WoW's and sounded like something that I would really like but all the reviews have turned me off of it. Will sounds like a total dick! That sounds a little over the top O.o wow. The worst is the abuser who apologizes *eyeroll*

    PAX! I knew he would be in here from what you said in your review. I can't freaking wait to read that book, it sounds sooooo good!

    I really wish I liked Pushing The Limits, I was such a black sheep for that one *scowls*

    Ugh I didn't even finish Splintered, that book was so bad. I couldn't I just couldn't.

    OMG BARBIES! YES!!!!!! So perfect for the topic. You've been a bad BAD boy!

    1. Lol!! The Barbies were the best!! It could not have been more perfect for the topic. I can't believe she did that!! OMG You will LOVE Pax!! Love him, Love him!!! Seriously though... haha!!

  14. Dude! I just started the Lux series and totally fell in love. Can not wait to read the next book. Daemon made me want to slap and kiss him at the same time!

    1. OMG right?!! He gets better with each book. And then you want to kiss him more than slap him, but he still keeps his little arrogant attitude.

  15. PAX, NOAH, and I do love Jude. Great choices.

  16. Bahahaha '2 naked boy barbies" that was great, thanks to you and your little cutie!! I LOVE Jace too...one of the best parts of the TMI books for me FOR SURE! Even if he is sort of a rip off of Draco Malfoy, he's much sexier & he's a good guy he's just had a really messed up life...sigh ♥ I can't wait to 'meet' Will then but I'm kind of scared too LOL Oh and I am TOTALLY team Aiden too even though I'm not far along in the series I still don't trust Seth! I also can't wait to 'meet' Daemon even though he's bad...I think he'll be my kind of bad ;) Another GREAT discussion girl!!
