The Historical Hotties tournament is catching fire! All month long we’ve been betting on the swooniest YA boys from way-back-when, and even some from the distant future, to celebrate BELLADONNA‘s recent publication.
Each contestant has been carefully chosen by the wonderful PLL Trendsetters and the PLL story architects. Join us each week to learn why each YA boy made the cut, and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree.
Voting will run until tonight, 8PM EST.
Lorenzo: Lorenzo is artsy, smart, polite, and gorgeous. He has character development throughout the novel, and is one love interest who I really felt like I “knew” by the end of the book. (PLL Trendsetter Maddie)
Will Herondale: How could you not swoon over this beautiful and tortured combination of dark hair and blue eyes? He’s the definition of the “misunderstood” guy, but he’s also completely selfless. It’s incredible, and so is he. (PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
Park: This boy is like every nerd girl’s dream boy. He’s a bit insecure, incredibly inquisitive, and so sweet that he and Eleanor will give you cavities. He isn’t without his flaws, but he’s one of the best boy characters I’ve ever read. (PLL Trendsetter Julianne)
Charlie: Now Charlie isn’t from Victorian London, but he is from the 90′s and that is an era all it’s own. Charlie is everything innocent and trusting about love and that is why I find him so swoonworthy. He’s just all awkward and wonderful and there is no way for him not to take a hold on your heart. (PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
OLD SCHOOL GENTS:
Mr. Knightley: Honest, sympathetic, kind-hearted and every other good adjective you want in a man.
Robin Hood: He not only steals from the rich and gives to the poor, but he also steals your heart and gives you the greatest love story ever.
Julian: Julian is the dreamy and kickass boy of a lifetime – and afterlife-time.
Thomas: Brilliant + brilliant = SUPER BRILLIANT. You want this boy and his brain.
