I was a little stumped trying to find a topic for today’s marry date or dump and so I looked at the top three YA books on the New York Times YA best seller list. Can we all just take a moment to be excited about the strong, diverse female characters written by female author that appear at the top of this list. At first, I thought I’d give you the love interests, but the protagonists of all three books seemed so much more interesting – so the choice is up to you if you want to do the boys or the girls, but I’m going to pick between Willowdean, Madeline, and Mare Barrow. Try to keep spoilers out of your comments, especially because I haven’t read Dumplin’ yet!
Here are my choices:
- Marry: Madeline from Everything, Everything (so much love for this character!)
- Date: Willowdean from Dumplin’ (haven’t read this yet, but think I’m going to like her a lot.)
- Dump: Mare Barrow from Red Queen (didn’t warm up to her and she’s got enough suitors to deal with!)
