1. Awkward. It is. refreshing when the boy isn't super smooth, angsty, or a flirt. I like a guy who stumbles on his words or geeks out everyone once in a while. Rather then the over -perfect boys who wouldn't dare do something so uncool in a lot of Y.A novels.
2. Heroic. I tend to fall for the guys who really want to help people, or make a difference. You know, the cliché dashing knight who willingly steps in front of an arrow to save a widow. Someone who knows there's good in the world and tries to make it even more so. It its annoying though when the love interest is Over- Protective a not allowing the girl to try anything or do anything for herself. If she can't fight her own battles how will she ever grow ?
3. Smart. A love interest who reads classics or studies advanced math books is really cute. You know the guy who can blurt out random facts at any given time. It's a lot less cute when he is condescending about it. There is no reason to go get a Sherlock sized ego Mr., Love Interest. Also do you have to keep telling the girl how stupid she, is all the time ! she already ahs low self confidence !
4. Funny. I know, I know this is an old one. But, book guys who make me laugh hold a closer place in my heart them Mr. Over-Serious Angry Face He-Man. Also there is no need to be a complete goof all the time Love interest. A little humor goes a long way.
5. Sad backstory. ... Okay so I am a teen girl ! Even I can fall for the clichés . Yes a boy with a sad backstory automatically has my pity and my heart just like a puppy left on the side of the road. Just no more whole family's dead for the sake of convenience. Since having actual parents or at least ones who care , is rare in middle grade or YA novels.
What do you find cute in Love Interests? Who do you think is the most crush-worthy guy I literature right now ?
Fare thee well: Milady !

The main character Tris comes from Anegation but has a hard time conforming to their selfless and giving life style. She finds herself drawn to the reckless, train hopping, and black wearing Dauntless. She feels as if she has to stay with her family though. Tris knows it would devastate her parents if she left them.
The twist ruined the book. It tried to cram in three hundred pages worth of plot in the last one hundred pages. There was too much going on to make it look polished or professional. It was all way to rushed. In fact it made the whole novel look stupid. You don’t change the main point of the book. The whole story was leading to see if Trish would get in to Dauntless. Sure, there was weird stuff going on in the Erudite area but that just seemed like foreshadowing for the sequel. Yes, their were other fractions hating on Abnegation but it seemed like that was to give Four a backstory. The mindless zombies attacking people thing just was just peculiar. It came up way to suddenly and made little sense. I’d really love to know, Veronica Ruth why make a great story but then have ruin it? How come the climax can't fit in with the beginning or middle?
(Three top hats out of 5, a good read but not breath taking)
