YA Superlative Blogfest Class of 2013: Day Two
I am so excited to participate in the YA Superlative Blogfest again this year! It's hosted by some of my favorite ladies: Jessica Love, Tracey Neithercott, Alison Miller, and Katy Upperman. I'm trying to bust my recent reading and blogging slumps, and I have a hunch this just might do it! Here are some of the characters who stood out to me in 2013:
Mostly Likely to Start a Riot
Ronan, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. A riot with explosions.
Orla, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Orange. Bikini.
Fashion King and/or Queen
Rachel, Starglass by Phoebe North. She even winds up assigned to work in a clothing shop--sometimes those dystopian job assignment systems work out!
Girl You’d Most Want For Your BFF
Lucy from My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi. As a fellow theater nerd, I think we would have a ton of fun belting out showtunes together. Many of my best relationships have been built on showtune sessions.
Boy You Wish You’d Dated in High School
Noah, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I mean...kind of. Probably not the early Noah that's hinted at in The Raven Boys. And I mean, later Noah is problematic for the obvious reason. But I do just find him so dear and lovely.
Most Likely to Become President
Adam, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Gansey seems the obvious choice...but he fights his roots so hard while Adam's ambition is boundless.
Iko, Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. Everyone's favorite vain, snarky, android takes on a new role in this second book!
