Time for more superlatives! Click the image below for more information, and check out the lovely ladies hosting this bookstravaganza: Katy Upperman, Jessica Love, Tracey Neithercott, and Alison Miller.
I loved this day last year, and I'm excited to see it again--thanks for bringing it back, ladies.
Most Envy-Inducing Plot (The Plot You Wish You Thought Of Yourself): The Dream Thieves
Most Formidable World (Setting You Definitely Would NOT Want to Visit): Zoe's home in Nobody But Us. Real-world settings with that sort of darkness are so hard.
Wanderlust-Inducing (Setting You'd Gladly Travel To): Wonderland in Splintered. I would love to see this gothic world up close an personal, as terrifying as it would be.
Loveliest Prose: This is a toss up for me. One of these three: Splintered, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, or The Dream Thieves.
Best First Line:
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea You stop fearing the devil when you're holding his hand.
Splintered I've been collecting bugs since I was ten; it's the only way I can stop their whispers.
A Darkness Strange and Lovely Can't share this one or it would spoil the first in that series.
Most Dynamic Main Character: I'm going to give this to Em from All Our Yesterdays. Because of the way the book was written, you really got to see her growth. Runner-up for this is Eleanor from A Darkness Strange and Lovely.
Most Jaw-Dropping Ending: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea with an honorable mention to Allegiant.
Best Performance In a Supporting Role: I really enjoyed Thorne in Scarlet as well as Finn in All Our Yesterdays.
Best Use of Theme: A Darkness Strange and Lovely did an excellent job with darkness vs. light.
