Welcome to the New Adult Readathon! Are you ready to immerse yourself in nothing but the new adult genre for an entire week? I know I am!

You all should know by now how much I love the new adult genre. I talk about new adult books every Monday in my New Adult Mondays feature. Most of the blog tours in which I participate are for new adult books. So, when I saw the New Adult Readathon, sponsored by Bookish Treasures and A Daydreamer's Thoughts, I thought it was perfect for my first readathon. Don't you think?

All week long, there will be giveaways, Twitter chats and mini-challenges open only to readathon participants. All you have to do is sign up on the linky list found on Bookish Treasures and A Daydreamer's Thoughts.

I'll have no problem reading nothing but new adult books this week. It's been my go-to genre for quite some time now. I'm going to attempt FIVE NA books this week. I wrote a post about the books I plan to read last week. You can find it here. I may have cheated just a smidge - I actually started The Redemption of Callie & Kayden yesterday, so I'm already 50% done with NA book #1.

So, are you ready for a mini-challenge?

So, tell me -  Which appeals more to you? The tatted up, pierced bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks who just needs the love of the right girl to turn him around forever? Or, the strong, romantic good boy whose love is what can fix a damaged girl on her way to self-destruction?

Still not sure? Maybe these will help. Observe - your typical "Bad Boy":

Travis Maddox from Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster & Walking Disaster

Rush Finlay from Abbi Glines' Fallen Too Far, Never Too Far & Forever Too Far

Lucas Maxfield from Tammara Webber's Easy

And, now I give you, your typical "Good Boy":

Will Cooper from Colleen Hoover's Slammed, Point of Retreat & This Girl

Andrew Parrish from J.A. Redmerski's The Edge of Never

Cam Hamilton from J. Lynn's Wait For You

Personally? I go for the bad boy every frikkin' time. I love the dychotomy of the rough, scary exterior and the softish, slightly damaged interior. These bad boys are my favorite because they love fiercely and have some crazy protective instincts, both of which make me all warm and fuzzy inside.

So, what about you? Do you like the dangerous bad boy who could rock your world and break your heart? Or, do you go for the gorgeous, dependable good boy who will stand by you and make you breakfast in the morning? I want to know!

And, to make things more interesting, here's a bad boy/good boy giveaway for you to enter. One winner will have a choice of

A. The Bad Boy Package - TWO of your favorite bad boy e-books
B. The Good Boy Package - TWO of your favorite good boy e-books

Remember - in order to enter the giveaway, you MUST sign up for the readathon on Bookish Treasures or A Daydreamer's Thoughts. I'll be checking! This giveaway will only be active for 24 hours. Good luck, and happy reading this week!

Based on your list, definitely the good boys!

I can never choose in the bad boy vs good boy debate! I prefer a bad boy exterior who is a sweet and kind good boy inside :)

I agree Krista I go for the bad boy every single time! Love the post!

Cinthia H said...

I'm torn too! I'd probably go for the good guy in this case.

Unknown said...

I hate to be the difficult one, but neither! I like the complicated boys--the tatted up sweet ones and the clean-cut nice boys with the dark and twisted pasts. If they aren't just a cardboard cut out cliche of "good boy" or "bad boy", then I like them!

I am a good guy girl! I love the boys who are sweet, and sensitive, the ones who are caring and protective, romantic and just oh-so-kind. I love the ones who aren't amazingly handsome, but pretty enough to be a looker. Essentially I love the best friend, the guys they never pick in the books.
But... in fiction I love the boys that look tough, that act tough, but underneath have a heart of gold.

Guys like Lucas Maddox in Easy, and Noah in Pushing the Limits. There's more to them under the surface and I love that. :D

I just LOVE the combo of bad girl good guy in Cora carmacks Faking It, I would go for a nice boy every time! Even though I'm partial to the odd tattoo here & there!

Unknown said...

I'm a sucker for the bad boys. :)

I prefer bad boys because you know deep inside they're kind of good guys too, especially to their loved ones :D
