YA superlative blogfest 2014 – Head of the Class

Class of 2014_Banner

It’s time for the 4th Annual YA Superlative Blogfest! Jessica Love, Tracey Neithercott, Alison Miller, and Katy Upperman hosted this interactive blogfest in 20112012, and 2013 with the hope of highlighting their favorite YA novels, covers, characters, and story elements.  And they´re back for the 2014 edition.

All covers in my round-up link to the goodreads pages.



Favorite Dystopian

TAKEN had brought me out of a reading slump last year and FROZEN exceeded my expectations. I cannot wait for the last installment…

Favorite Science Fiction

Hmmm I did read this book in 2013 but it is a 2014 release…so it counts, right? (plus I don´t read lots of Sci-fi unless you count some of the awesome manuscripts I´ve beta read but I can´t put those on this list—maybe soon!)

Favorite Fantasy

Love, love, love. And so happy for Jen! This book made me laugh, and cringe, and swoon, and yes I almost cried on the plane…Jen needs to get to the sequel soon 🙂
I don’t read a lot of fantasy but I’d follow Bree pretty much anywhere.

Favorite Contemporary

(so this section will have subsections…because I´ve read A LOT of contemporary novels…)

Favorite contemporary that made my heart beat faster

Favorite contemporary that made my heart bleed (no pun intended)

Favorite contemporary that made my heart fill with hope

Favorite Comedy that had lots of romance & made me want to go back to Italy

It´s not entirely a comedy but it does have lots of fun moments.

🙂 Hmmm it would seem I read a LOT of contemporary novels… 🙂

Looking forward to seeing what books made it at the top of your lists!

  1. Thank you for sharing these. Sadly, I haven’t read any. #hangshead Like many of us, I have sooooo many to read. Frozen sounds pretty intriguing. It’s nice to hear it was a read that lifted your from a slump.

  2. This blogfest has been great for pointing out those categories I need to make sure I fill in 2015. (I read no 2014 Paranormal this year. Oops!) I like this idea of subcategories, because it was really hard to pick just one for a couple of the categories. I really need to check out THREATS OF SKY AND SEA. Thanks for the rec! 😀

  3. I loved Wished You Were Italian- so cute! I will try and finish Isla before the end of the year. For some reason I just couldn’t get into it but I think it’ll be easier to read in between Christmas and New Year.

  4. Eek! So many contemps! That seems to be what my students are most into these days so I will have to get reading in order to make good recs! Thanks for pointing me towards several titles that look great!
