YA books released and read in 2012
YA books released and read in 2012

Class Clown

Meant to be

Jason – he’s funny, sweet, endearing and loves the attention he gets by being his clown-self…And he’s also so much more than that.

Most Likely to Become a Rock Star

The Disenchantments

Bev – she might not really become a Rock Star but she´s got the attitude, and the band.

Most likely to start a riot

Pushing the limits

Noah – I think he would do anything for his siblings, including starting a riot.


Tris – she would definitely be the one to start a riot…But at the same time, can you blame her?

Fashion King and/or Queen

A Midsummer´s nightmare

Harrison – He loves fashion, and he’s supportive and funny and smart and encouraging.

Time Between Us

Emma – here again, she knows her fashion, and she seems like a fun/nice/supportive person to have around!

Girl You’d Most Want For Your BFF

If I lie

Quinn – Because she had such a hard time, and still managed to stay true to herself and the ones she loved.

The Raven Boys

Blue – So we can go on adventures together, and talk about the Raven boys, and life, and all those mysteries swirling around. And to be immersed in Maggie’s magical writing.

Biggest Flirt

Stealing Parker

ParkerFlirting is a coping mechanism for her.


Catherine Howard – she flirts to get ahead, to climb the social ladder, and for the pretty dresses. But she also flirts to feel alive.

Boy You Wish You’d Dated in High School

Can I just tell you that list is ridiculously long and leave it at that?:D

Most Likely to Become President

A million suns

Elder – I mean he’s already a leader. And on a ship. And without the you-know-what-I-won’t spoil-it-for-you. 

Favorite Parental Figure

My Life Next Door

 The Garretts – They’re supportive, loud, funny, and simply there.


Hazel’s parents – they love their daughter, and are there for her. Their suffering and their heartbreak is visible and though they try to also simply be there for Hazel.

  1. Good call on Noah! I need to incorporate that book somewhere… Also, Stealing Parker is TAUNTING me from my Kindle. I get all jazzed and download a bunch of books and some end up sitting there like my REAL BOOKS. It’s such a cruel world. 😉

  2. We have some of the same books listed under certain categories. 🙂 The book boyfriends category was SO hard to choose just one (of course I didn’t just choose one). I still can’t believe that I forgot about Jason in MEANT TO BE for Class Clown. That guy was totally a joker. Hmm. Oh well. 🙂

  3. Yay for Bev as a rock star… I totally see it! And now I’m wishing I would have included the Garretts for my Favorite Parental Figure choice… Such an awesome family!

  4. I totally agree that Bev is destined for rockstardom! You are right–the parents in TFIOS were depicted so well. I loved them, and my heart broke for them.

  5. All the appearances of The Disenchantments is reminding me I need to read that soon! It seems like fun, and I love the cover. 🙂

    I’d love to be Blue’s friend too, and I think she could use some gal pals, especially with all those Raven boys around!

  6. Haha, didn’t even want to try on the boyfriend front? I guess that’s the danger of YA–every boy is too great. Ok, well how about this: are you camp sweet and supportive or camp sexy and a little dangerous? Those seem to be the two main breeds of YA boy. I’m a sucker for the former.
