Thanks for joining Katy, Alison, Tracey and me over here at the Class of 2013: YA Superlatives Blogfest again for the popularity contest! The linky is at the bottom, so add your link and the then hop around to visit everyone's blog!
Now, on to today's categories, where we can pick characters from any 2013 book! (In case you need a reminder, here is what I read this year.)
Caymen in The Distance Between Us
This girl has the best one-liners and the most hilarious inner monologue. I want to sit next to her in the back of science class and just snark on everyone.
Most Likely to Become a Rock Star
Elise in This Song Will Save Your Life
Elise is destined for greatness. She'll end up one of those super famous DJs who can sell out entire venues.
Mostly Likely to Start a Riot
Gray from Taken
I love Gray because he's the kind of guy who jumps in and gets things DONE. That's why this book was so action-packed...Gray was always starting trouble as he tried to figure out WTF was going on in Claysoot.
Willem in Just One Day / Just One Year
Oh, Willem. So charming, he left a trail of women swooning for him all across the globe. But, seriously...who could resist this guy?
Fashion King and/or Queen
Eleanor & Park from Eleanor & Park
Between his guyliner and Joy Division t-shirts and her thrift store finds that look more like art, these two are my fashion favorites for the year.
Character You’d Most Want For Your BFF*
Roux in Also Known As
I love Roux! I love her so much! I want to hang out with her all day, every day! If you haven't read this book yet, do it for Roux. She's worth it.
Character You Wish You’d Dated in High School*
Sai in The Reece Malcom List
It's like Amy Spalding went into Teen Jess's brain to create this boy.
Most Likely to Become President
Gansey in The Dream Thieves
I think I chose him for this last year, too. Blue calls him President Cell Phone when she first meets him! And he's so diplomatic!
Zusana in Night of Cake and Puppets
I wasn't sure if I was going to use this for superlatives because it's not a full-length book, but I loved it so much, and Zusana is so awesome in every day, that I decided my list wouldn't be complete without it and her on there.
Villain You Love to Hate
The doctor in All Our Yesterdays
I love when a villian has a fully developed backstory that makes me really relate to him/her and maybe even feel a little bad. This book really did make me sympathize with the bad guy at points, which isn't easy to do.
Favorite Parental Figure
Kami's dad in Untold
Every character in this series is absolutely hilarious, but Kami's dad wins all the things.
Cath in Fangirl
She writes fanfiction and has Emergency Kanye Dance Patries. Cath is the best.
*So, I know I helped write these categories and all, but as I was filling this out I realized how non-inclusive they were as we had written them. Not everyone is BFFs with a girl and dating a boy, Jess. Get your head out of your butt. So I changed it. Sorry I didn't think about it sooner.
