    Hell NO to the stalker guy!!! Like when I see all these people swooning over Travis Maddox from Beautiful Disaster. He sounds like a total psycho-stalker, how is that hot?

    I’ve not read Crown of Embers yet and I really need to so I can see what happened to Hector?! I am so against stalker love interests as you know…amazing and sad that there are so many. I love the editor one because, yes, I think we’ve all thought that. I’m reading Inhuman right now and I’m dreading the triangle. Sigh.

    Sexy stalkers are the worst. I hate that it’s a thing. Ten Tiny Breaths is a perfect example, I thought the whole thing was so creepy and I just don’t get it. I don’t get why some people find it romantic or sexy.

    I didn’t enjoy Stung either, though I have to say I loved Beautiful Creatures despite the length. But that’s beside the point. 🙂 Awesome list!

    Oh no! I’m scared to read Just Like Fate now. I gave up on Beautiful Creatures pretty early on. The writing was awful and the male narrator sounded very feminine.

    I totally agree with the stalker thing. Sometimes I’m reading a book and I’m completely amazed at how creepy the whole situation is. It’s the Edward Cullen syndrome. “I watch you while you sleep”. Shudder.

    Great list.

    Haha, I love the way you did the layout on this! I agree – I hate stalkers and wanna-be rapists. How are those even things?? And I don’t mind a long book, but a too-long book that could have been amazing if it was shorter? Yeah 🙁
