Thanks to everyone who voted in my first U-Pick poll! The category last week was "Most Sadistic Villain" and the result was overwhelmingly in favour of...
Voldemort and President Snow battled for a distant second and third, with Voldemort just edging out President Snow by a single vote. Boys, you might want to take a few leaves out of Professor Umbridge's books and really get to work on upping your delight in someone else's pain if you want to significantly figure in the running. Congratulations to Professor Umbridge!
And now, this week's poll: who in YA is the Most Alluring "Bad Boy"? You choose!
There are lots of choices here, so vote below! (If the book is part of a series, I've just listed the series name. You can decide which book you want to base your vote on.) There's also an option for a write-in vote if your pick isn't listed. If that's the case, please choose "other" and then leave the character's name and book title in the comments :)
I'd also be interested in knowing how YOU define "bad boy". When I did a Google search looking for characters to include in the poll, it seemed like there were a few different ideas of what constitutes a fictional "bad boy". What do you think?
