The year 2011 has brought us two amazing Cassandra Clare novels. In April, we got City of Fallen Angels, the fourth installment of The Mortal Instruments. And just less than two weeks ago we got Clockwork Prince, the second installment of The Infernal Devices.
Both books are nominees in Hollywood Crush’s ‘Favorite YA Novel of 2011.’
As another 365 days of vampire romances, dystopian thrillers and murder mysteries comes to a close, it seems the opportune time to reflect on the year in YA.
And what a year it was. We were introduced to a handful of debut authors who are bound to leave their mark on the literary scene (we’re looking at you, Veronica Roth, Marie Lu and Tahereh Mafi!). We dove into new series from old favorites (Richelle Mead’s “Bloodlines”). And we continued our adventures with the usual suspects (Cassandra Clare, Ally Condie and Melissa de la Cruz). We stayed up late, reading just one more chapter until it was dawn, shuffling into school or the office like so many brain-hungry zombies. And we adored every second of it. And now it’s time for you, Crushers, to declare your undying love and devotion for the book that made your year. What was your favorite YA novel of 2011?
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 25. The winner will be announced on December 26.
