Thanks to everyone who took part in my end of year survey: I'll be contacting the winner early in the New Year!
The results are in: There's a new favourite book couple in town and a runaway winner in the Most Anticipated 2014 YA debut.
Read on to find out more!
Your Favourite Books of 2013
1. Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
3. Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra
Honourable Mention: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Last Years Winner: The Fault in our Stars by John Green*
Reactions towards Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth have been mixed to say the least. I loved it, a lot of people didn't, and yet it got the coveted top spot on your favourite reads of 2013. It was a close run thing between Allegiant and Eleanor & Park, and the fact that Fangirl came close to taking third place from Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Princess means that I really, really need to check out some Rainbow Rowell in 2014. Hopefully I can get caught up before her new novel Landline releases in July 2014.
The Books You Cannot Wait to Read in 2014
1. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
2. Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
3. Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi
Honourable Mention: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Last Years Winner: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Funnily enough, Isla and the Happily Ever After was Number 3 on the list of Books you most wanted to read in 2013. I guess when the release date was pushed back, it just made you all the more excited for ISLA since it came in at Number One this year! After the awesomeness that was Anna and the French Kiss I can't wait to see how everything turns out when ISLA releases in March.
Top YA Debuts of 2014
1. Alienated by Melissa Landers
2. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
3. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
Honourable Mention: Trouble by Non Pratt
Last Years Winner: Level 2 a.k.a The Memory of After by Lenore Appelhans
This is my favourite category! I love seeing what YA debuts you guys are most excited about. Alienated by Melissa Landers was the runaway winner of this category with more than double the votes of the second placed book The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings. I think that both of these sound like great reads and I'll definitely be checking them out. Also very popular amongst you guys was Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy which got just a couple more votes than Trouble by Non Pratt.
If you want to know the YA debut I'm most excited to read in 2014, it's Hexed by Michelle Krys which came in at Number Five on your list.
Favourite UKYA in 2013
Honourable Mention: More Than This by Patrick Ness
So many of you skipped voting in this category! This makes me sad, although it's understandable since many of you are international readers and a lot of UKYA might not yet have reached your shores. Hopefully next year there will be more votes in this category! In the meantime the worthy winner of the UKYA category is C.J. Flood's Infinite Sky, a beautifully written coming of age tale, with a bitter twist to it. Hot on the heels of Infinite Sky was More Than This by Patrick Ness.
Favourite Book Couple of 2013
Winners: Adrian Ivashkov & Sydney Sage from The Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead
Runners Up: Four & Tris from The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
Believe it or not, Adrian and Sydney won this easily! I haven't caught up with the series yet (I've only read Bloodlines) so I was surprised to see them win this and I was also surprised to discover that this series is already four books in! Richelle Mead works fast, huh?! She's also obviously working her magic on these two because you guys really seem to love them together and I really need to catch up on the series to find out what all the fuss is about! Four and Tris, last years winners, were runners up this year.
That concludes the survey results for this year! Did your picks make the list? What do you think of the winning picks? Let me know in comments!
