The Monday Poll: Virtual Worlds
Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we asked which spring sequel you were most looking forward to. We didn’t include Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers in the poll, but it got a shout-out in the comments. (The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, Just One Year by Gayle Forman, and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins were also mentioned in the comments, but those are all summer and fall titles, so keep an eye out for later polls to vote for them!)
Among the titles we did include in our poll, Requiem by Lauren Oliver (released on March 5) was your top pick with 23% of the vote. Game by Barry Lyga (April 16, 17%), Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (March 19, 15%), Quintana of Charyn by Melina Marchetta (April 23, 14%), and The Elite by Kiera Cass (April 23, 13%) also made good showings. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
This week is Teen Tech Week, so we’re looking to technology this week for inspiration. Tell us: which virtual world from a YA novel would you most like to live in? Vote in the poll below and leave us a comment telling us why you voted the way you did!
