The Class of 2013: YA Superlatives Blogfest - Best in Show

Favorite Cover
Freakboy by Kristin Elizabeth Clark. The design is unique, and I love the colors.

Cutest Couple
Zuzana and Mik from Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor. This novella that tells the story of their first date is about the cutest thing I've ever read.

Most Likely to Succeed (Or, pick a Printz Winner)
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Gripping, thought-provoking, and intense.

Most Likely to Make You Miss Your Bedtime (The book you just couldn't put down!)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I devoured this one!

Best Repeat Performance (Your favorite sequel or follow-up)
Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone. I was so happy that Anna and Bennett got another book!

Favorite Finale or End of Series Novel
Requiem by Lauren Oliver. This was one of my favorite series. I was sad it had to end!

Romance Most Worthy of an Ice Bath
Crash into You by Katie McGarry. I wasn't a big fan of Isaiah before, but I TOTALLY get it now! *fans self*

Breakout Novel (Your favorite book by a debut author)
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner. Still finishing this one, but I'm going to go ahead and pick it!

Best Old-Timer (Your favorite read of the year, published BEFORE 2013)
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. Such a beautiful story.

Most Likely To Make a Grown Man Cry
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein. A heart-wrenching story that is ultimately hopeful in the end.

Most Pleasant Surprise (The book you didn't think you'd like, but totally did)
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. I wasn't sure I'd like a vampire book, but this one was great.

Most Creative Use of a Love Triangle
Boundless by Cynthia Hand. I can't really say why I picked this one without spoiling it!

Sleeper Hit (Book you found so awesome you wish it had been hyped more)
Intuitionby C.J. Omololu. A great paranormal story full of mystery, action, and romance.

Favorite Outlier (Your favorite MG or adult 2013 book)
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I will pretty much read anything she writes from now one!

Favorite audiobook
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz, narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda. I was an emotional mess while I listened to this in the car! Wonderful narration.
