1. Best book of 2010? 
Best book of 2010... how can I decide?! Siren by Tricia Rayburn, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins  and Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning!

2. Worst book of 2010? 

Secret Ties by Opal Carew. Geebus. When you're skipping the steamy scenes in a steamy book... there's just something really wrong there.

3. Most Disappointing Book of 2010? 
Fallen Angel by Heather Terrell. I had such high hopes for this book and I don't know, it just didn't work out for me. Sea Change by Aimee Friedman. I just had no idea where it was going half the time and the ending really really left me hanging.

4. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2010?  
Definitely Siren by Tricia Rayburn. I wasn't expecting to like it so much!

5. Book you recommended to people most in 2010? 

The Clearing by Heather Davis and The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. 

6. Best series you discovered in 2010? 
The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, The Touch series by Laurie Faria Stolarz and The Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr!

7. Favorite new authors you discovered in 2010? 
Melissa Marr, Alyson Noel (why it took me so long to read these two is beyond me), Julie Kagawa, Shayla Black, Olivia Cunning, Elizabeth Scott, Sarah Ockler, Alisha Rai, Angie Frazier...

8. Most hilarious read of 2010? 

The Iron King/Daughter by Julie Kagawa. Puck has got to be the most hilarious character I've ever had the pleasure of meeting! 

9. Most thrilling, unputdownable book in 2010?  

Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton and Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz are the two books I finished in less than 24hrs in 2010. 

10. Book you most anticipated in 2010? 
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and it blew me AWAY!

11. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2010? 

Eyes Like Stars: Theatre Illuminata, Act I The Mermaid's Mirror Everlasting Hunger

12. Most memorable character in 2010? 
Hands down, Katniss Everdeen! She's a total badass with that bow! Also, Puck :)

13. Most beautifully written book in 2010? 

Hmm, I want to say Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. Even though there's a ton of detail, I just love the way my imagination runs wild with her writing.

14. Book that had the greatest impact on you in 2010? 

I'm going to say The Clearing by Heather Davis. It stayed with me days after I finished it and all I could think about was what if you could turn back time and make things right again? 

15. Book you can't believe you waited UNTIL 2010 to finally read? 

Oh my. Evermore by Alyson Noel, Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. All amazing books. The first two have been in my TBR since I finished Twilight two years ago. I don't know why I didn't bother reading them sooner!

1. New favorite book blog you discovered in 2010?
Now that's a tough question because I started blogging in 2010, so I don't think that would be fair!
