I have a confession to make…I am subject to character crushes.
That’s right, I admitted it. I simply love some of the characters in the books I read. Like Edward in Twilight(okay – so EVERYONE has a character crush on him), or Cabe in Lisa McMann’s Wake and Fade,and Seth in Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely. Of course, one of my favorite character crushes in a friend’s WIP.
But what makes a good character crush. Is just about a character’s “hotness” factor? Or is it something more?
For me, it is more than just looks – though I am not one to shrug off a HAWT character. Actions are important to me, as well as integrity. And the more complex a character, the better. In fact, through in a tortured past and I am hooked.
So, let me ask you…Do you have any character crushes? Who are they? What makes them your crush??? I’ll graph the answers (in honor of my friend Elana) for a future post, so be sure to leave a comment.
