Welcome to a very broody Waiting on Wednesday. Today a book I have wanted before I even knew I wanted it. 😛 I have been following @broodingYAhero for a while now, and I always love and laugh at the tweets. Making fun of typical YA tropes (like the best friend next door, or the love triangle, or why the main girl always falls for that certain boy). So when I heard that there would be a book full of Brooding YA hero’s advice, tips, and more, I just wanted it in my life immediately. Sadly, we still have to wait until October 3rd before it comes out.
Have you ever wished you could receive a little guidance from your favorite book boyfriend? Ever dreamed of being the Chosen One in a YA novel? Want to know all the secrets of surviving the dreaded plot twist?
Or maybe you’re just really confused about what “opal-tinted, luminous cerulean orbs” actually are?
Well, popular Twitter personality @broodingYAhero is here to help as he tackles the final frontier in his media dominance: writing a book. Join Broody McHottiepants as he attempts to pen Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, a “self-help” guide (with activities–you always need activities) that lovingly pokes fun at the YA tropes that we roll our eyes at, but secretly love.
As his nefarious ex, Blondie DeMeani, attempts to thwart him at every turn, Broody overcomes to detail, among other topics, how to choose your genre, how to keep your love interest engaged (while maintaining lead character status), his secret formula for guaranteed love triangle success, and how to make sure you secure that sequel, all while keeping his hair perfectly coiffed and never breaking a sweat.
