In no particular order of awesomeness:
Also one of my favourite series EVER. If you have not read the Vampire Academy series, I suggest you shimmy your backsides right on over to the bookstore or library and get fangy with it. Preferably in a non-Strigoi way. I also suggest you don't read this unless you have Last Sacrifice close by because the cliffhanger is TORTURE!
I absolutely loved this book! I really enjoyed the flashbacks of Nastasya's life - let's just say she's one oooooold, witty, young lady. The Viking God (as Nastasya refers to his general hotness) is not the typical YA love interest, he too has a very long history, one that makes their budding relationship a whole bucket load of complicated. The ending disappointed me because it left me wanting moremoremore!
One of my favourite series. Melissa Marr convinced me that faerie books are awesome. A dark, magical world of faery politics and hot fey love.. A fantastic addition to the series, which left me breathlessly awaiting the final conclusion in 2011
I think Lauren Oliver was one of my new favourite debut author's this year. Her writing is brilliant and to imagine when I first started reading this, that I'd be crying for Sam at the end.... certainly didn't see that coming! Heartbreaking, inspiring and really makes you take a long, hard look at your own life.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes raised the bar for wolfy novels, I feel in love with Bryn and Chase and the whole wolfy pack world Jennifer created. Witty, funny and full of furry goodness.
My first review posted here! Intense, funny, crazy awesome - if you love YA or incredibly sweet, stupidly funny, average teen boys or dark, dangerous, power-hungry villains - go read!
I'd been eagerly awaiting this all year and it did not fail to disappoint me. Beautiful writing, stifling society, my heart ached for Ky and the cliffhanger is a sharp knock of realisation over one's head as to how far away November is for the sequel.
Narrowing down the best of 2010 was hard enough, can you imagine how difficult it will be choosing the 11 most anticipated titles of 2011? Insane! But I'll give it a go ;)
