Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I hope everyone is well-rested and well-fed from their holiday festivities. We couldn't wait to get to zumba class to shake off all of those Christmas cookies--and we still have New Years Eve to indulge. Gulp.
Anyways, today we get to start the uber-fun, uber-awesome YA Superlatives Blogfest! You may have remembered Quita mentioning it here. The topic today? Head of the Class--or our fave books in each genre. Enough yapping, let's get to the books:
Divergent by Veronica Roth. Hands down. We didn't even have to argue over this choice.
Favorite Science Fiction:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis. We admit it--we didn't read much sci fi this year. But we're pretty sure we'd still choose this one.
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. This is considered fantasy, right? Right?
Recovery Road by Blake Nelson and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Drastically different. Equally awesome.
Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts. A page-turner if we've ever seen one.
Favorite Historical Fiction:
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. The setting, the language...the awesome.
How I Stole Johnny Depp's Alien Girlfriend by Gary Ghislain. Hilarity ensued.
The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker. Nobody does whodunnit better than these sisters.
Lola and the Boy Next Door. Pam never swooned so much in her life.
Favorite Paranormal Romance:
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. These ladies almost make you want to fall in love with someone not quite human.
Favorite Family Drama:
Brooklyn, Burning by Steve Brezenoff--AKA, Pam's new favorite author.
Favorite Genre Bender:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. We have NO CLUE how to define this book. Other than it kicks ass.
So, there it is. Our first installment for the YA Superlatives Blogfest. Do you see any of your faves in there? Anything we should have chosen instead? :)
