Katy Upperman, Jessica Love, Tracey Neithercott and Alison Miller had the great idea to organize the CLASS OF 2012: YA SUPERLATIVES BLOGFEST! Don´t hesitate to check their blogs for all the links…
The choices were tough (see all the wonderful books I´ve read this year?)…so yep…hmmm sometimes there may be more than one…
Today I am proud to present POPULARITY CONTEST.
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
Bev – she might not really become a Rock Star but she´s got the attitude, and the band.
Most likely to start a riot
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
Harrison – He loves fashion, and he’s supportive and funny and smart and encouraging.
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
Quinn – Because she had such a hard time, and still managed to stay true to herself and the ones she loved.
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.
Parker – Flirting 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
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
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.

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. 😉
How did I forget about Harrison?! And I had a really hard time with that category too. Ugh.
Great choices, Elodie! I must beef up my TBR!
You’ve got quite a few on here from books I didn’t get around to reading. But I think I agree with you on Tris for starting a riot. And I would very much love to have Blue as a friend. She’s just so real.
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. 🙂
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!
Amazing list! I’m totally in agreement on wanting to be friends with Blue. Can I just live in that book, pretty please? 🙂
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.
Elder would make a great president 🙂
Thanks for the list . . . I’ve added them to my TBR list on Goodreads:-) What a cute blogfest idea!
Great list! I like the collage, too. I need to figure out how to make that.
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!
Good ones. I loved Across the Universe 🙂
The good thing about Quinn being your bff…you KNOW she would totally keep all your secrets. 😉
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.
I feel like another good answer for Boy You Wish You’d Dated in High School would be ALL OF THEM. ALL THE BOYS.
