It's that time of year again, when it's...nearly over. Haha. A couple of weeks ago, I found out about the YA Superlative Blogfest, hosted by Tracey Neithercott, Katy Upperman, Jessica Love, and Allison Miller and I HAD to participate because it looked like loads of fun.
I realise that nobody actually cares but this is the first post I've written in ages because of school and stuff and now I feel really good so THERE.
INSURGENT by Veronica Roth // UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Rossi
Favourite Science Fiction
UNRAVELING by Elizabeth Norris
All the plot twists and action and wow, this hooked me so bad. And it was so freakin' creepy. In the best way possible.
THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater. I just don't think I'll ever read anything that Maggie Stiefvater writes that I end up not liking. Even a LITTLE bit. I'm not really into fantasy, but THE RAVEN BOYS ended up being one of the best books I read this year. The writing was captivating, and had the beauty of Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy that I loved so much.
ALL OF THEM. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS by John Green
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Do you actually need me to say anything. I think not. (I will probably end up on the floor or something, anyway).
DARK EYES by Patrick Carman
Erm, Russia and violence. What more could a girl want??
Favourite Historical Fiction
ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell
ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL by Jesse Andrews
GEEK GIRL by Holly Smale
This doesn't publish until February 2013, and I seriously cannot wait until you guys get to read it. Super fresh and funny and I'm a bit in love with Nick who is a MODEL and...yeah. And Harriet is adorable. (She's 15 and I turned 16 a couple of weeks ago therefore I am ALLOWED to say that).
THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH by Maureen Johnson
Why does she have to do this to me
Why does she have to write these kind of books
TIME BETWEEN US by Tamara Ireland Stone
In TIME BETWEEN US, Anna and Bennett fall in love. But the thing is...Anna's currently living in 1995 and Bennett is in the future, in 2012.
ENDLESSLY by Kiersten White
I haven't read much paranormal this year, because I've kinda gone off it a little, but how could I NOT read this? Kiersten White's Paranormalcy trilogy is fabulous, and ENDLESSLY was no disappointment at all. It's all the good parts of paranormal and FUNNY. Evie is my gurl.
Favourite Family Drama
WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER by Jenny Han
Finally, finally this came out in the UK. And I was *very* happy to see that all the drama I love from the previous books makes an appearance. But I'm sad because the trilogy has ended :(
Favourite Genre Blender
EVERY DAY by David Levithan
My Kindle broke whilst I was in the middle of reading this. I didn't read anything for over a week, waiting for my replacement to arrive. Why? Because I couldn't bear the thought of reading something else when I hadn't finished EVERY DAY. It's one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. I could't read anything for days after I had finished it. David Levithan, please let me inside your head. I'm pretty sure it's paradise.
Tomorrow, it's the popularity contest (YA characters of 2012 FTW). Do visit.
