Class of 2012: YA Superlatives - One Week Warning!

I can't believe it, you guys! We are only one week away from the Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest! Where has this year gone? I still have so many 2012 releases to read! How am I going to fit them all in? I'm panicking over here! *flails*

Katy UppermanTracey NeithercottAlison Miller, and I wanted to give you a little reminder that the Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest is coming up in ONE WEEK, and also remind you of the following things:

* The Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest runs from Monday 12/7 - Thursday 12/20.

* The categories are posted here and at the bottom of this post.

* There will be a special giveaway of the 2012 release of your choice from BookDepository for each day of the Class of 2012: YA Superlatives Blogfest for participants!

* You do not have to post every day to participate! And you don't have to complete each category per day to participate! BUT you will only be eligible for the day's giveaway if you post every day

* There will be a linky here and on Katy, Tracey, and Alison's blogs each day so you can link your picks and travel around to see everyone else's. 

* If you want to get a head start, go ahead and start drafting your posts! (I've had a spreadsheet going for at least a month now.) These posts take a while to compile, so you might want to get a jump on it. You can check out my posts from last year for ideas.
