It's day three of the YA Superlative Blogfest!
Here are my picks for "Elements of Fiction."
Most Envy-Inducing Plot (Or, the plot you wish you’d thought of yourself.)
Most Formidable World (Or, the setting you definitely would NOT want to visit.)
Crewel by Gennifer Albin
When I first heard the concept of this book--a world that is woven--it made me salivate.
I love what Genn created in Crewel (not to mention how it ended). But after seeing all
that Adelice and everyone in this world goes through, I wouldn't actually want
to live there.
Wanderlust-Inducing (Or, the setting you’d happily travel to.)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Ravka is simply stunning.
Origin by Jessica Khoury
I went back and forth over this category, but I wanted to go with a book that didn't win any
of the other awards. I adore Jess's style of writing. It's simple but lovely.
Best First Line
"I am a coward." -Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I just love everything about this.
Most Dynamic Main Character
Verity - Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Verity is not a coward, as you learn quite fast when you read this book. She is SO intriguing.
Her secrets are woven into the pages. I love her.
Most Jaw-Dropping Ending
I really, really want to give this award to Progidy by Marie Lu. I know it's a 2013
release, but I read it this year, and OMG THE ENDING. Just you wait.
