U-Pick: Couple Best Described by the Facebook Status "It's Complicated"?

Here's how this feature works: each week I'll post a categorical superlative (e.g. "most sadistic villain" "crankiest father figure" "protagonist you would most like to slap some sense into" etc.) and list a few choices of characters from YA books in a poll. You get to pick! The poll will run for a week, and then in the following post I'll update with the name of the winning character. 

Last week the poll was for Most Alluring "Bad Boy". I watched the results of this one with interest since the leader kept changing between three candidates. But in the end, the clear winner was...

...Alex from Perfect Chemistry!

I was actually a bit surprised at this result, since this was the only straight-up contemporary YA book of the bunch. However, Adrian from the Vampire Academy series and Jace from the Mortal Instruments were not far behind, tying each other for second place. Draco came in a distant third, and the others? Well, they're clearly going to have to work on upping their "bad boy" allure if they're going to get anywhere.

This week's poll: YA Couple Best Described by the Facebook Status "It's Complicated."

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.) For this one, don't worry about whether the "complicated" factor gets resolved at some point in the storyline. Just base it on when the couple hits their most complicated point.

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 :)

Next week's topic will be: Character You'd Most Like as Your Personal Matchmaker. Any suggestions for who I should include in the choices?



  1. Great poll, I voted for Katniss and Peeta, I definitely found their relationship awkward!

  2. Your U-Pick feature is a lot of fun!


I love comments, so post away!
