How this #broodybff met her Broody, Heroic YA Leading Man

Y’all, this blog is about to get EVEN MORE wild and varied, because I’m gonna start posting Broody BFF posts! What is that, you ask? I’m so glad you did, because I would LOVE to explain!
Let’s take it back to the beginning, shall we?
During one of my random Twitter scrolling phases, I stumbled across a retweet of an absolutely hilarious Tweet by this account, @BroodingYAHero.
Now, no one knows this because I’ve never had a chance to tell anyone, but I ADORE parody Twitter accounts. Like @GuyInYourMFA, one of the first I came across, which killed me because it’s just SO GOOD.
Anyway, back to my broody leading man, Broody McHottiePants. His Twitter is just total🔥. As someone who’s a self-described YA obsessee (I read it, I write it, I blog it, I sometimes even dream it), there was so much to love about this Twitter.

I mean, let’s start with how on point and sassy it is!

Just look at him sass himself and the whole dang genre!

If you know me, you know there’s little I love more than a good dose of sassiness. Whether I’m doling it out or reeling from a well-placed barb, I have a well-developed appreciation for some fine sass.

And Brooding YA Hero is nothing if not sassy.

There’s something refreshing and necessary about seeing someone point out tropes, stereotypes and potential pitfalls in a genre you’re trying to write, and that’s why I first fell for Broody: because of the Twitter account.

So imagine my surprise and utter delight when I discovered there’s a book! Coming! Out! This! Year! based on the account! Check out the description here. No, seriously, go read it and add it to your Goodreads page. Don’t have one? That’s OK, it’s already on Amazon, so you can preorder! I’ll wait while you do so.

OK, moving on. So I discovered the Twitter…I discovered the book…imagine my utter delight when I discovered that a street team was being put together to promote it before its release! Comprised of a bunch of super cool, bookish and awesome people (I’m currently meeting them all via Facebook, so I’m being utterly honest when I say these people are SO COOL. I applied to be a Broody BFF, cause duh, and IMAGINE MY TOTAL DELIGHT WHEN I GOT IN!!!

So there you have it. The true story of a friendship for the ages (cause we all know I’m totes the best friend and not the love interest in the YA of my own life) between me and @BroodingYAHero. I’m honestly so excited for this book. It’s gonna be a total delight to read, and I’m gonna spend the months leading up to its release posting here, on Twitter or on Instagram about the book. So do yourselves a favor and follow not just me but also my main man, and let’s do this!
