YA Superlatives: Best in Show

Today wraps up this year's YA Superlatives. If you've missed the rest of them, it's not too late to jump in! Click the image below for more information, and check out the lovely ladies hosting this bookstravaganza: Katy UppermanJessica LoveTracey Neithercott, and Alison Miller.

And here we go!

Favorite Cover: This was really tough for me, but I did actually narrow this category down to one. This cover is so so so beautiful.

Cutest Couple: I really like Em and Finn in All Our Yesterdays, but I'm still holding out for Blue and Gansey in The Dream Thieves.

Most Likely To Succeed: Nobody But Us  by Kristin Halbrook.

Most Likely To Make You Miss Your Bedtime: Most of the books I read this year did this to me. Scarlet did it the most.

Best Repeat Performance: Very torn between Siege and Storm and The Dream Thieve. Of course, Asunder was really good, too.

Favorite Finale: Requiem by Lauren Oliver.

Romance Most Worthy of an Ice Bath: Morpheus and Alyssa in Splintered.

Breakout Novel: Torn here between Splintered and All Our Yesterdays.

Best Old-Timer: Easy. The Fault in Our Stars.

Book Most Likely to Make a Grown Man Cry: Nobody But Us

Most Pleasant Surprise: The Madman's Daughter

Most Creative Use of a Love Triangle: Splintered

Sleeper Hit: Splintered

I really never know what do for my own category, so I'll leave it at that!


  1. SPLINTERED made so many of your categories. Must read and soon! I could use a good "Romance Most Worthy of an Ice Bath" read lol. TFIOS made my list for best pre-2013 read too. I still haven't read NOBODY BUT US. Probably should, right?

  2. Ooh, A DARKNESS STRANGE AND LOVELY really does have a beautiful cover. Great choice! Also, I clearly need to read SPLINTERED as soon as possible. I've heard great things about it over the course of the week.

  3. Oooh, that dress on A DARKNESS STRANGE AND LOVELY is gorgeous! Want!

  4. Yes, Blue and Gansey. I love those two together!

  5. TFiOS was my old timer, too! And Blue and Gansey? I haven't read THE DREAM THIEVES yet, eek! THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER was very, very good.

  6. Oh, yes. Morpheus and Alyssa were a close runner-up for me in the romance category. Alyssa and Jeb easily could've gone there, too.

  7. A DARKNESS STRANGE AND LOVELY has such a lovely and evocative cover. I have a lot of new titles to put on my list, thanks to your picks. :)
