YA Superlatives: Popularity Contest

Today marks day 2 of the YA Superlative Blog Fest. Click the image below for more information, and check out the lovely ladies hosting this bookstravaganza: Katy UppermanJessica LoveTracey Neithercott, and Alison Miller.

Let's get this popularity contest started: and the winners are...

Class Clown: River West from Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Definitely a performer for sure. I won't say any more than that because--no spoilers!

Most Likely To Start a Riot: Tough one--most any of my dystopian ladies. Tris (Allegiant) or Lena (Requiem). Though with the growth I saw in Ana in Asunder, I think she's a runner up here.

Biggest Flirt: I had a lot of contenders for this role this year, but this one goes to Sunshine from Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Willem from Just One Day is a definite runner up.

Girl You'd Most Want for Your BFF: Why do you do this to me?! Can't I have all of my favorite leading ladies? No? Well, fine. Be that way. Alyssa Gardner from Splintered or Blue from The Dream Thieves. For the record, the boy I'd pick for this is Noah from The Dream Thieves. Em from All Our Yesterdays  is a definite runner up along with Bree from Taken.

Boy You Wish You'd Dated in High School: I have a three-way tie here with Finn from All Our Yesterdays and Thorne from Scarlet and Nikolai from Siege and Storm. Very similar personalities among these fellas. Sorry I'm not sorry for choosing three.

Most Likely to Become President: Gansey wins this for the second year running. I don't know what I'm going to do with my life when The Raven Cycle ends.

Quirkiest Character: Either Persephone (and really all of Blue's family) from 
The Dream Thieves or a character from Scarlet that I can't name because, spoilers. SPOILERY HINTS IN WHITE: She's an android. Runner up is Ollie from A Darkness Strange and Lovely.d.

Villain You Love to Hate: New villain is The Gray Man from The Dream Thieves.  Still loving The Darkling (always loving hating loving hating the Darkling) from Siege and Storm. I guess I have a thing for villains without names. Runner up is the villain from 
All Our Yesterdays.

Favorite Parental Figure: This goes to Maura from The Dream Thieves hands down. Sorry every other parental figure ever.

Coolest Nerd: Cinder from Scarlet


  1. Let's not talk about the Raven Cycle ending, ok? We still have 2 more books. I don't want to think about that just yet. *clings*

  2. How did forget about Nikolai from SIEGE AND STORM?!? I'm kicking myself right now so hard. Love that guy! You have so many awesome people listed under each category and it's making me rethink some of mine (or, at the very least, my decision to go with only one). :-)

  3. I've only read 1 of your picks, though I'm about done with the audio version of Just One Day. Between the Devil, Taken and All Our Yesterdays have been on my list for a while. Too many books!

  4. I agree with so many of your picks. And you're so right that Sunshine from Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was a major flirt! I forgot her. Dude, I have no idea what I'll do when The Raven Cycle ends either. Inundate Maggie Stiefvater with fan mail until she agrees to continue the series?

  5. I agree with many of your picks too. Also, please don't feel you have to limit yourself to one per category. I never do. :)

  6. I nominate Gansey for president as well! I forgot all about Sunshine from DEVIL. She's got flirting down to a science. :-)

  7. I thought about putting Tris in the riot-starter category but my feelings for Allegiant meant I just couldn't do it. I like those character names from The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea - definitely bumping that one up on the list.
