The Monday Poll: Most Creative Title

by Flickr user red5standingby
Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week we asked who you thought was the worst parent in YA lit. With 36% of the vote, Leck from Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore won (lost?). Jazz’s father in I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga was second with 21% of the vote, and Mrs. Coulter in His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman was in third with 16% of the vote. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

Titles — like covers — matter. We’ve asked previously about your favorite impossibly long title and about which book title you’d change, but which title of a YA novel do you think is most creative? Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if we’ve left out something truly ingenious.

Which is the most creative title?

  • Hold Me Closer Necromancer by Lish McBride (28%, 42 Votes)
  • The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler (27%, 41 Votes)
  • Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison (13%, 20 Votes)
  • Is Kissing a Girl Who Smokes Like Licking an Ashtray? by Randy Powell (9%, 13 Votes)
  • Pardon Me, You’re Stepping on My Eyeball by Paul Zindel (6%, 9 Votes)
  • Vegan Virgin Valentine by Carolyn Mackler (5%, 8 Votes)
