I've never participated in the YA Superlative Blogfest before so please bear with me. Even though I smashed my Goodreads challenge goal (ok, perhaps 'smashed' is going too far), I still didn't read too many books published in 2013 and of those class of 2013 reads, not so many were YA. So, there will be repeats and I certainly will not be able to fill every category but I'm going to give it a go. Ready?
Favourite Dystopian The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Creepy (for me anyway, I don't tend to read much sci-fi/dystopian stuff) but an interesting take on an alien invasion. I really liked Cassie and the other narrators and I think it will be an excellent film when it finally gets made.
I'm not even going to start on this one because I'll go on forever - I loved it so, soooo much!
Favourite Action/Adventure Perfect Scoundrels by Ally CarterFavourite Comedy How My Summer Went Up In Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
I really like this series, maybe even more than Gallagher Girls, and this was a more grown up, emotional but necessary instalment. Kat is one of my favourite YA series girls.
Vibrant characters, really lively story, well structured and well paced. I had no complaints with this one.
Favourite Mystery The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher
Intense, chilling and thrilling. I think the dark and mysterious tone was heightened by my James Blake soundtrack.
Favourite Romance How to Love by Katie Cotugno
Sweet and full of heart. There was something more to this than your usual second chances story.
