Welcome to The YA Sisterhood's YA Crush Tourney 2.0!  We hope that through this all you will meet a lot of book loving people, discover new books, and of course be introduced to many more dreamy crushes!  

Be aware that we have tried to keep all the posts pretty general, but there might still be some spoilers.  If the spoiler is big, it will be marked.  However, still proceed with caution!

Matches will run for 24 hours, 12am to 12am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  For more information please check out our Tournament Page.


Amy @ bookgoonie and Kayla @ Dark Faerie Tales would like to introduce you to Ashallayn'darkmyr Tallyn and our pick for winner of the YA Crush Tournament 2.0. This Ice Prince of the Winter Court used to hide his heart behind a cold exterior. It was necessary for self-preservation living in a court where feelings and emotions are regarded as weaknesses. But his heart's recognition of his true love, "broke him out of his icey wall of indifference." If you don't already know his name, you must remedy it quickly and read The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa. Start with The Iron King, but I recommend you buy them all. You won't want to come up for air till you've read all four and the two novellas.
"You are my heart, my life, my entire existence."

Chivalry is not dead. He will make you feel like the princess you are. He will never waver in his determination to honor you and your vows. His smile says everything: clever, tender, brave and calculating. This is the man for you. One that loves with his whole heart and would be willing to deny his own to protect you.
"I vow to protect you with my sword, my honor, and my life."

Where to start... Ash is tall and lean and muscular. But that's just the basics. If your heart doesn't melt when you look into his icy silver eyes, they will when you see him practice his sword fighting skills with that black cape and dark tousled hair... Plus he will look forever young. Looking like a teenage hottie for the rest of eternity? Yes, please!
"He filled the room with presence, a royal among commoners."

Epic sword-fighting skills? Check. Forever young? Doubly check. Winter glamour? YES! Ash can battle the toughest of monsters not only with his wicked icy sword made specially for him, he can also throw ice daggers at you at the same time! With centuries of knowledge and experience on hand, Ash can melt your heart or kill your enemies. Did I mention he can also ride horseback with the best of them? No? Well when he's on his horse, almost nothing can beat him in a race. Once you are sufficiently swooning, he'll whisk you away to dance under the stars.
He will "kill things for you."
Special Attributes

Whether it's with a smile or his strong arms, your heart will skip a beat, your stomach will flutter, your skin will tingle and your lips will burn. The Icey Prince will melt you into a contented puddle. Ash has proven his Crush Worthiness by denying his queen, his court and his blood, to brave iron and face treason for love. He will go to the End of the World and endure a gauntlet of trials to be with his one true love.
"And I swear, if there is a way for us to be together, I will find it. No matter how long it takes. If I have to chase your soul to the ends of eternity, I won't stop until I find you, I promise."


Don't tempt fate and disobey the Gods...


Hey everyone, I'm Kayleigh from K-Books and I am here with a task from the Gods... to advocate for the awesome Aiden St Delphi from Jennifer L Armentrout's phenomenal Covenant series!
Aiden is the perfect lead male character in the Covenant series. I'm going to convince you why you need to vote TEAMAIDEN! After all he is the world's best Pure Blood!!
Besides you wouldn't want to upset the Gods.... WOULD YOU?
*Please note there may be some spoilers from the Covenant series if you haven't read Daimon, Half-Blood and Pure please read on with caution. Any major spoilers will be highlighted before hand*


If you've read the Covenant series you won't need much persuading from me to vote for Aiden. He can do that all on his own. The one word to describe him and his personality is: PERFECT!

It's the truth he is just perfect! In every way!
- Aiden is one of the strongest characters you will ever read about. He is fiercely protective and always out to protect the ones he loves.
"I have to. I told you before I'd never let anything happen to you. I meant it."
Aiden will always do what is right even if it means sacrificing himself.
"I kissed her like I was never going to see her again, because in a way, I wasn’t. Not this way, and as much as that killed me, I knew the difference between what felt right.
            And what was actually right." 
- Aiden always sees the best in everyone.
"She was so incredibly strong and I couldn't fathom how she didn't know that."
- Aiden always fights for what he believes in. No matter how dangerous it might be. 

"If the Gods want a war they'll have one." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 
- Aiden is super romantic and increidbly swoon worthy. He can easily make any girl's insides just melt! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule. You’ll become the centerof someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”  ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
