YAY!! Of course Harry Potter wins best all time fave!! If you haven't read these books yet....don't even talk to me! I don't want to hear your excuses! Go NOW!!!
Have you seen this cover? I've never seen it before!
Congrats to Lauren Kate who won best new writer for FALLEN! This was one of Amy's favorite reads ever! TORMENT just released yesterday and Amy was very excited to show off her new shirt! Check it out!
Best teen series: Vampire Academy: SPIRIT BOUND by Richelle Mead
I haven't read this series yet, but I've heard it's fantastic! The sixth book in the series THE LAST SACRIFICE is due to release Dec. 7.
Best lip lock: Bella & Edward from BREAKING DAWN by Stephenie Meyer
Yeah....I'm going to have to disagree with that one! If you're going to pick one of the Twilight books for best kiss, how can you NOT pick that kiss between Bella and Jacob? I mean, I was an Edward girl (before the movies), but that kiss with Jacob......yeah!
Best hottie: Jace Waylaynd from Mortal Instruments: CITY OF GLASS by Cassandra Clare
Yes, I think I would have to agree with this one. I just adore Jace! He makes me smile! He's just the perfect mix between bad-boy and love of my life.....wait, what? I mean good guy! Yes, that's what I meant!! Seriously, really.... Congrats to Cassie for making such a swoon-worthy guy! He may have a little compitition with her newest hottie, though, be sure to check out Will from CLOCKWORK ANGEL, you just might want to trade up!!
Best book-to-flick: Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Um....of course I love this pick! I think this may have been the best adaptation of all the Harry Potter books to film, although what they did with Harry and Ginny's relationship borders on criminal! I have a feeling that once The Deathly Hallows movies come out, I'll be picking a new favorite, though! Have you seen the trailer??? If not, it's at the top of this blog! I think I watch it every time I look at my blog! Harry Potter = love!!
Best hero: Percy Jackson from THE LAST OLYMPIAN by Rick Riordan
Ok, I'm going to admit something.....I didn't care for the Percy Jackson books.....there, I said it. I couldn't make it through the first one. BUT!!! All of my kids (ages 7-14 at the time) LOVED them. LOVED! And I'm pretty sure that's his target!
Best villain: Alice Milthorpe from PROPHECY OF THE SISTERS by Michelle Zink
I'm really happy about this one!! This was a really fantastic book and I just haven't heard that much about it in the blogging world, so I'm glad to see that it is being read by people and that Alice has given other people out there the chills too! Alice is freaking creepy!!! When I reviewed this book, I went through and wrote down my feelings chapter by chapter, and one thing that keept showing up in my thoughts was freaky Alice!! Check out my review here. I'm going to be reading the sequel GUARDIAN OF THE GATE for our Halloween reads in Oct
Best Canadian read: Darkest Power: THE RECKONING by Kelley Armstrong
I've had this book sitting on my shelf for awhile now, but I haven't had the chance to read it. I keep seeing it everywhere, now, though, so I'm definitely putting at the top of my list! Congrats, Kelley!
Best Read: The Hunger Games: CATCHING FIRE by Suzanne Collins
Ok, so the BOOK-THAT-MUST-NOT-BE-NAMED totally killed this series for me, but I have to admit THE HUNGER GAMES, and CATCHING FIRE were amazing. Until YOU-KNOW-WHAT came along, this would have ranked #2 in my favorite series ever. So....if you haven't read them yet, and you want to be really depressed....read at your own risk. Haha! :)
Sadly BEAUTIFUL CREATURES by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl didn't win, but we're going to give it our own award! So, it wins best Freaking Awesome book. Yes...that's a category if we say it is!
If you haven't entered our contest for BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS & lots of SWAG yet, there's still time!!
