It's Time For 2012 YA Superlatives!

Last year Katy UppermanTracey NeithercottAlison Miller, and I hosted The Class of 2011: YA Superlatives Blogfest, which turned out to be a fun and interactive way to highlight our favorite YA novels, covers, characters, and story elements. We had a fantastic group of bloggers who signed on to participate, and we had a blast hopping from blog to blog to find out how you awarded your 2011 superlatives.
Katy, Tracey, Alison, and I had such a great time promoting awesome 2011 books and getting to know new bloggers through the blogfest, we've decided to do it all over again! This year we'll highlight 2012 books, we'll introduce a few new superlative categories, and we're planning a giveaway as just ONE more reason to join in on the fun.
There will be lots more information about specifics of the The Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest in the coming weeks (I can tell you that it'll take place toward the end of December), but we wanted to give you a heads up now, so you have plenty of time to beef up your books-published-in-2012 reading list (there's a comprehensive catalog of titles HERE). And we encourage you to revisit our 2011 posts (Katy'sTracey'sAlison's, and mine) to refresh your memory on the superlative categories we included last year.
Just like 2011, the The Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest will be all about FUN and promoting fantastic novels! Don't worry if your 2012 reading list is on the short side, or if you don't have a book/character/cover/element for each category; we just want you to jump in and participate any way you can!
