Four/Tobias from Divergent by Veronica Roth

My name's Becky B. and my blog is Bibliognome. I'm thrilled to be advocating for Four, the supremely awesome guy from the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.

*loud clapping and cheering*

* Okay now while reading this post just imagine that you have You're the Best the song from The Karate Kid movie playing full blast, I find that makes everything more dramatic/dauntless (just like Divergent and Four.)  :)

Here we are again getting ready for another YA Crush Tourney. Everyone knows that there are a plethora of capable crushes in this tourney but I'm here today to tell you that Four is the crush that should rise to the top of this Tourney.

If you haven't read the Divergent series here's my review of Divergent and Insurgent.  I can't wait to read the last book and am crossing all of my fingers and toes hoping that the movie of Divergent will be as epic as the book.

Look into those eyes and you should know without a doubt who to vote for. #TeamFour

Here we see how Four sees himself, in Four's own quote from Divergent: 
 “Two things you should know about me; The first is that I am deeply suspicious of people in general. It is my nature to expect the worst of them. And the second is that I am unexpectedly good with computers.” 

Yeah, he's a little pessimistic but in the world of Divergent where choice is everything once you choose a faction be it Abnegation, Candor, Dauntless, Amity, or Erudite you have to follow their rules or you get rejected by society.  

As the tagline for Divergent says, "One Choice Can Transform You." Four is definitely a guy that has transformed himself.  He is willing to sacrifice everything for the love of his life and he and Tris might just be the keys to changing the whole society. 

Be Brave and make the right choice, Vote for Four :)

Four Haiku
Strong and capable
Fierce fighter almost no fear
Four worth fighting for

I made a song for everybody to sing while they vote for/when they want to support Four, it's sung to the tune of I Love You aka that song from the Barney TV show:

Four Amour

I Love Four,
You should too,
Let’s be Dauntless through and through,
With a great big Vote,
and a plea from me to you,
Won’t you say you’ll Vote Four too!

I love Four,
You should too,
Go and join the Team Four Crew,
With a great big cheer,
and a plea from me to you,
Won’t you say you’ll Vote Four too.

Now make sure to VOTE for Four as much and as often as possible and let's take Four to the top of the YA Crush Tourney!  :) Show your support on Twitter, Facebook, your blog, etc. You can follow me on Twitter at @GeckyBoz and make sure to use the #TeamFour tag so I can see all your tweets.


Cole from Everneath by Brodie Ashton

I am completely honored to be an advocate for the YA Crush Tourney and even more honored to be able to represent Cole. After having finished Everbound early this year my crush from him went from a maybe 3 (on a 1-10 scale) to being about a 9.5 – so I’m thrilled to fight for him in this fun tournament. I have been blogging for almost two years and have been enjoying every minute of it. I’ve loved these tournaments and have actively voted for boys I was super passionate about. Now I get to be one of the people fighting for votes and I can’t wait for it to begin! Cole is considered Everneath’s resident bad boy. Personally, I feel like he’s not that bad just mostly misunderstood. One third of a love triangle and definitely the most interesting aspect. We have his competition, football jock and ex-boyfriend, Jack. But honestly, you can’t even compare Cole to Jack. Plus, we’re not here to bore you by talking about Jack, now are we? This is all about Cole; Cole, who is sexy as hell, is also immortal and in a band as the kickass guitarist. Seriously, his guitar skills are legendary.

Cole used Nikki, it’s as simple as that – to begin. Cole needed Nikki for survival but then things changed for him. We start to see that Cole does, in fact, have a heart (even if it’s hidden somewhere else). This is where we start to see just how misunderstood of a character he is. He’s ancient; he’s always used humans for himself and had no reason to ever get attached. But we all know, all it takes is the right person to come along and your world could be turned upside down. His personality is one that may grow on you over the books but once he does, he’s like that itch under your skin that just won’t go away. The best kind of itch you could ever ask for, mind you. He’s charming . . . when he wants to be. He’s handsome and the greatest thing about that, he doesn’t age. At all. His beautiful blonde hair with his mysterious dark eyes that just lure you in; trust me. His tattoos which just confirm his bad boy mantra – especially those knuckle tattoos. This list is filled with good boys who are charming with good looks. Isn’t it time to prove that saying right; good guys finish last? Help the bad boys take charge and show everyone whose boss. It’s about time we stirred things up in the fictional world and voting for Cole is the way to get it done.

Just so you know . . . my tether always points to you.” – Cole to Nikki page 247 of Everbound
