Hey there, friends! It’s been FOREVER since we’ve played marry, date or dump and there have been so many new, swoon-worthy YA characters written. I picked three of my favorites … which I’m already starting to regret. I mean, who am I going to dump? This one’s going to keep me up tonight. We’ve got the romantic, family-loving, and sensible Rishi from When Dimple Met Rishi, Chris from The Hate U Give with his fancy sneakers and knowledge of all things Fresh Prince, and the adorkable, Tolkien and Cadbury egg loving Reid from The Upside of Unrequited. Ahhhhhh … no actually I’m freaking out about who to dump. Why did I do this to myself?
Here goes nothing:
- Marry: I had to pick Reid, even though I waffled a lot on this one. I fell IN LOVE with this book through him. He is sweet, funny, and so comfortable being himself. And he seems highly able to tolerate anxious, overly-sensitive women, which is a big plus for me.
- Date: Rishi is bae. I love how romantic he is and how much he respects his parents and family traditions. Dating him would be an honor and a privilege.
- Dump: This leaves Chris, which I guess makes sense because even though he is AWESOME this book isn’t a romance at it’s core. I do LOVE this character though. I think his limitations and the way he began to challenge them by the end were super impressive. And his sweetness with Starr = swoons for days.
Okay, now it’s your turn. You’re challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to tell me who you would marry, date, and dump in the comments. Good luck!
