Bookish Survey: Book Superlatives

Posted January 13, 2014 in Survey / 0 Comments

Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner created this survey in August 2013. From her post:
While I was making my Meet YA Jamie post I was perusing through my yearbooks obviously and had to chuckle at the senior superlatives. This week I’m using the notion of “senior superlatives” from our yearbooks and making some for you to award books and characters!
To make it easier on myself, I’m only using books I read in 2013. Note: I skipped questions I couldn’t find a good enough answer to.


Most Likely To Change The World
Racath from Attrition by S.G. Night.
Cutest Couple
Racath and Nelle from Attrition. Although they’re not really a couple.
Class Clown
The only one I can think of is Rudy from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. He was smart, but he just seemed like he would be the most class clownish out of everyone.
All Around Good Person
Amy from The Diary of Amy, the 14-year-old Girl Who Saved the Earth by Scott Erickson. Her only flaw was her naivete.

Most Likely To Be Fought Over
Jack from Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz. And boy was he fought over. It was extremely intense. Also Tessa from Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. Obviously.
Mostly Likely To Be Friends Forever
Will and Jem from Clockwork Prince. They have something special.
Most Likely To Have Their Own Reality Show
Sam from My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George. It would be about how to survive in the wild. Not just survive, but live. Actually live.
Most Unique
Everyone’s unique. But I’m going to say Katsa from Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. She has the Grace to survive. That’s pretty amazing.
Most Likely To Survive An Apocalypse
Same. Katsa from Bitterblue (and Graceling). She is Graced with survival, after all.
Most Likely To Be A Villain
Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. He is just so laughable yet so dangerous. It’s hard to take him seriously until he starts killing people.
Most Likely To Break Your Heart
Tessa from Clockwork Prince. She’s bound to break some hearts at some point. (I haven’t read Clockwork Princess yet. Don’t spoil anything for me.)
Most Changed
Devil from The Bride of Devil’s Acre by Jennifer Kohout. Typical Beauty and the Beast story.
Most Likely To Get Arrested
I really want to say Count Olaf but he’s the most likely to not get arrested because he’s so good at escaping the law (just kidding it’s because the police are so stupid. Take that back. The adults are so stupid). So instead I’d say Long John Silver from Treausre Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, if he’s ever caught.
Self Proclaimed God/Goddess
Sacchari and the other ‘Mnogo gods’ from Attrition. Literally. They claim to be gods. But they’re just demons. Spoiler alert. Not really.
Best Person To Bring Home To Mom & Dad
John from Colette by Michelina Vinter.


Most Likely To Make You CryThe Book Thief
Do I even need to explain?
Dares To Be Different (in world, plot, storytelling, etc.)
The Book Thief
One word: narration.
Best Dressed (pretty cover!)
The Bride of Devil's Acre
There were a few runner ups but I’m too lazy to worry about those.

(can we just use this as the answer for all of them and be done with it?) :D

I actually did get this as a gift for my friend.

Physik (Septimus Heap, #3)
The end. Was so frustrating.
