It's the last day of the blogfest! Thank you all so much for playing along with us and sharing your favorite 2014 releases! Alison, Katy, Tracey, and I have had so much fun hosting you all this week, and we've loved reading about everyone's favorites. I don't know about you all, but I've certainly added some new books to my TBR pile!
Remember to hop around to the other blogs on the linky below to see everyone else's choices. And at the end of today's post, everyone chose their own superlative category, so make sure you weigh in on all of those.
Here are my picks for today (and remember, these are the 2014 books that I read this year)...
So, I haven't read this book yet, but I absolutely love the cover. I'm partial to any cover with a gorgeous Asian girl on it, and this one is particularly beautiful.
Reagan and Matt in Open Road Summer
I loved these two so much!
Most Likely to Succeed (Pick a Printz Winner)
This was the best book I read this year. Amazing.
Most Likely to Make You Miss Your Bedtime
You're definitely going to want to read this in one sitting so you can figure out what happens.
Best Repeat Performance (Favorite Sequel or Follow-Up)
I read it and then immediately read the whole series again. That's how good it is.
Favorite Finale or End of Series Novel
Romance Most Worthy of an Ice Bath
Aliens have never been so sexy.
Best Breakout Novel (Favorite Book by a Debut Author)
Because I'm a 2014 debut myself, I don't really feel okay about picking a favorite from all the awesome One Four books I read and calling it the BEST. So a huge shout out to all of my fellow debut 2014 YA authors I had the pleasure of reading this year!
Best Old-Timer (Favorite Book Published BEFORE 2014)
I can't believe it took me so long to read this amazing book.
Most Likely to Make a Grown Man Cry
This book brings the feels!
Most Pleasant Surprise (Didn’t Think I’d Like It But Totally Did)
This isn't entirely true...I love Arthurian legend, so I knew I would love this book. But this one is the book most outside of my normal reading patters that I really loved.
Most Creative Use of a Love Triangle
I wrote this about The Raven Boys for this category in 2012's Superlatives: "So you think Blue is going to hook up with Gansey. AND THEN SHE DOESN'T. What are you doing to us, Maggie? Well, I don't even care. I know I'm going to love it, regardless. "
Yup. Still. LOL.
Sleeper Hit (Novel So Awesome I Wish It’d Been Hyped More)
This quiet little book was so excellent, I wish more people knew about it.
Favorite Outlier (Best 2014 Picture Book, Middle Grade, NA, or Adult Novel)
Make My Own Category
I loved getting the conclusion to Allyson and Willem's story!
