Do you remember high school superlatives? Best Personality, Most Likely To Succeed and all that? I wasn’t popular or well-known enough to get awarded anything, but my friends and I gave each other our own (most likely to start a book blog, right here! Haha, just kidding).
Considering YA authors help us forever relive our teen years, I thought giving them some high school superlatives was only fitting.
Although I’ve awarded a few, YOU have the chance to vote on some superlatives at the end!
Young Adult Authors & Their High School Superlatives
Touring around the country on the Divergent movie tour couldn’t have been easy. But VRoth ROCKED it out with some serious style. The dress she’s wearing in the picture below just nailed it for me. She looks like a total bombshell author goddess. You work that runway, Veronica!
If you don’t follow Lauren DeStefano on Instagram you really should. Not only is Lauren a talented writer, she’s also a skillful home decorator! I’m constantly impressed with the bookish and artful ways she’s accessorized her house.
Here are a few pics of her beautifully decorated house. Come help me next Lauren!
Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs
I’m sure absolutely no one is surprised by this pick. These two authors are seriously the most adorable ever. Ransom has even blurbed Tahereh’s book – praising it to the heavens, obvs. I feel like they would have been the couple in high school everyone knew would stay together after graduation. It’s a forever love, ya’ll.
Most Unique Style
No sepia tone for this picture. Between her colorful hair and her super fun outfits, I think Stephanie wins this hands down. And like any good fashionista, she’s always changing it up. Oh you thought I had pink hair? NOPE. On to blue streaks.
Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
Nothing says besties for life like writing a book together! Jenny and Siobhan wrote the Burn for Burn series together and are so supportive of each other’s work. I think the photo says it – WOMAN POWER!
Even though Sherman’s books often involve serious topics, they always add in a heavy dose of humor. With so many accomplishments, he’s got a reason to smile!
As I explained in my YA Lit pranks post, John Green is kind of the master of mischief. He’s the best type of troublemaker too because he’s not the cut-up class clown, he’s the devilishly smart one who can secretly rule the school.
Life of the Party
Meg understands high school. She really does. Her books use a voice that is so authentic and real, and I think that gives her an inner youth that keeps her writing and successful. I bet Meg can turn up like the best of them. Look at that coy smile…
