HAPPY NEW YEAR! We aren’t quite ready to welcome 2019 without a little retrospective of 2018. Things we learned from this year’s top ten most popular FYA posts? You guys love a Highly Scientific Analysis (and Noah Centineo), and the end of a Sarah J. Maas series brings all our readers running to dish.

Let’s take a look back at your favorite posts of the year:

10. 25 Swoony YA Books For Your Next Beach Vacation

9. Your New Fake Boyfriend: Noah Centineo

I mean…duh.

8. A Highly Scientific Analysis of Crazy Rich Asians

In which Mandy W fangirls for this long awaited adaptation.

7. Stream It: Thor: Ragnarok

Is a Thor movie the dark horse in this year’s top ten rankings? I am of the personal belief that anything involving Chris Hemsworth has a place here and also in my heart.

6. A Highly Scientific Analysis of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Obviously, *we* couldn’t stop talking about TATBILB this year, so it’s no surprise this was a top ten post.

5. Dance Academy: The Comeback Hits The Barre

The cast of Dance Academy: The Comeback posted together

FYA HQ will never NOT stan Dance Academy, okay?

4. Stream It: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

You mean to say a movie about book clubs was popular among FYA readers??? ::pretends to be shocked::

3. A Highly Scientific Analysis of Love, Simon

NICK ROBINSON, MY LOVE! ::cut to me ugly crying in the movie theater::

2. To Whatever End (Kingdom of Ash review)

After six years, seven novels, and a handful of novellas, the Throne of Glass series finally came to an end, and y’all needed to talk it out.

1. The Felicity Rewatch

::drum roll please:: Our most-viewed page of the year was the Felicity rewatch tag! You guys were here for reliving the awkwardness, heartache, and confusion of Felicity’s college years, and we had a blast rewatching it with you.

Did you have a fave post that didn’t make the cut? Let’s reminisce in the comments! Also, let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see more of in 2019. And as always, HAPPY NEW YEAR and THANKS FOR READING, friends!
