I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Don't Ever Change - M. Beth Bloom

I've always felt ambiguous about the idea of the Bad Boy. Like, I know morally we shouldn't find that attractive, but I guess realistically we can't always help it. Now I'm realizing maybe it's just the phrase itself that's the problem. Bad Boy sounds kind of cute - there's something dumbly adorable about it. But Bad Person sounds awful. Saying, "I'm in love with a Bad Boy" might make your friend giggle or blush, but saying "I'm in love with a Bad Person" is just disturbing. I'm not labeling Elliot as some Officially Bad Person, but I am saying he's a Bad Boy, and if the two could be recognized as being part of the same category, we'd all save ourselves a lot of time and trouble.

 

 

I love this.
