Anonymous asked you: Hello! Ok, so I might have a somewhat off the wall idea of a book I might like. Here are some things I’m looking for: Antagonist/villain as a main character, preferably one that’s in a twisted romance (like maybe he’s obsessive or something or they’re just a messed up pair), teen characters, well written, emotional, perhaps that evokes sympathy for the antagonist?… Does such a book exist? I thought the best way to find out is to ask a team of well-read experts. Doesn’t hurt to ask, right?

Books that I (and possibly others) believe fulfill these requirements:

Books that I think are questionable (i.e. they fail to meet at least one requirement):

And here are some external resources for books of this type:

I know there are more. There pretty much have to be more, right? So, fellow writers, what books do you know that fulfill at least five of these requirements?

  1. Antagonist as main character
  2. Twisted romance
  3. Teen characters
  4. Well written
  5. Emotional
  6. Sympathetic antagonist

I’m looking forward to your recommendations, aren’t you?
