Tuesday, December 18th: Popularity Contest
Choose characters who fit each topic from ANY YA book!
Class Clown(s): Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, John Green)
I know, I know. They're cancer patients. Just read on...
Hazel: "God, you're the best,”
Augustus: "I bet you say that to all the boys who finance your international travel.”
"What a slut time is. She screws everybody."
“It's just that most really good-looking people are stupid, so I exceed expectations.'
'Right, it's primarily his hotness,' I said.
'It can be sort of blinding,' he said.
'It actually did blind our friend Isaac,' I said.
'Terrible tragedy, that. But can I help my own deadly beauty?'
'It is my burden, this beautiful face.'
'Not to mention your body.'
'Seriously, don't even get me started on my hot bod. You don't want to see me naked, Dave. Seeing me naked actually took Hazel Grace's breath away,' he said, nodding toward the oxygen tank.”
Okay, so maybe not class clowns, but despite their tragedies and struggles, they were funny. Hilarious actually. My heart and gut hurt so much from alternating periods of laughing and crying.
Most Likely to Become a Rock Star: Mike Ness (ZERO, Tom Leveen)—he IS a drummer, and totally deserves a successful road to fame, IMHO
Mostly Likely to start a Riot: Ronan (THE RAVEN BOYS, Maggie Stiefvater)—ticking time bomb, one I couldn’t help but love though.
Biggest Flirt: Whitley Johnson (MIDSUMMER’S NIGHTMARE, Kody Keplinger)
Fashion King and/or Queen: Aphrodite (HIDDEN, P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast) and Mia (BETWEEN YOU AND ME, Marisa Calin)
Girl /Guy You’d Most Want For Your BFF: I debated too long on this one, trying to find a girl I’d most want for my BFF, and the only ones popping into the brain were boys. Then silly Alison realized, OH...the category is Girl/GUY. *facepalm*
So, here’s two: Corndog (STEALING PARKER, Miranda Kineally) and Colby (THE DISENCHANTMENTS, Nina LaCouer). They’re loyal and just always seem to be there when their friends need them—no matter what.
Boy You Wish You’d Dated in High School: Hands down—Heath Luck (HIDDEN, P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast) I’d say more, but I’d spoil things for non-HON fans.
Most Likely to Become President: Gansey (THE RAVEN BOYS, Maggie Stiefvater). Well, he IS President Cell Phone.
Quirkiest Character: Meg (THE DISENCHANTMENTS, Nina LaCouer)—she’s in a band, likes the Supremes, has pink hair. LOVE her. And Gigi (SKINNY, Donna Cooner)—she doesn’t get much page time, but her eclectic wardrobe and hair stand her out when she does.
Villain You Love to Hate: King Leck (BITTERBLUE, Kristin Cashore)—still gives me the heebie jeebies
Favorite Parental Figure: the Lancasters (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, John Green) - most supportive parents EVER, and Miriam Walsh (ZERO, Tom Leveen)—at first, I didn’t care for her much. She seemed enabling and wishy-washy. She evolved into the strong, dependable parent—even if she wasn’t the coolest one.
Honorable Mention for coolest parental figure: Uncle Pete (THE DISENCHANTMENTS, Nina LaCouer)—he has a van named Melinda…Melinda… that he offers up for The Disenchantment’s roadtrip.
Coolest Nerd: Rat (SKINNY, Donna Cooner)—okay, so maybe not a nerd. But he’s Ever’s best and only loyal friend and I just thought he was pretty awesome.
Any you agree with? Who would you pick? Add your name to the linky and join in the fun!
