Recommend A...

"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!

Recommend A...Book With a Bad Boy!!

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.


  1. That's definitely an interesting choice! I'm not sure if I consider Darcy a bad boy, but he definitely leads to some bad thoughts when I imagine him stepping out of that fountain...

  2. Haha, I love how you went old school and picked Darcy! Just love it :)

  3. Interesting choice! I wouldn't have thought Darcy could be considered a 'bad boy' but then again, I've never read Pride and Prejudice! I borrowed it from the library the other day, though - it's on my shelf right now, and you've just made me even more eager to read it!

  4. Oh, awesome choice! I wouldn't have put Mr. Darcy in the bad boy category, but I guess he actually was for most of the book from Elizabeth's perspective. I LOVE Pride & Prejudice and watch the BBC version with Colin Firth at least once a year as well as read the book! lol
