My first year as a book blogger summed up. Farewell 2010!

Sooo seems as everyone’s done this and I have a few spare minutes and I LOVE surveys I decided to hop on board and get one done myself! I’m also going to be doing my own version of this announcing my book of the year and other favourite books in early January so keep your eyes peeled for that! This post is everywhere at the minute but it can be originally linked back to Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner. Best Book of 2010 Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly one word. AMAZING. Worst Book of 2010 Twelve days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley. Just really didn’t click with that one. Most Disappointing Book of 2010 Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel. I was SO excited to read this and everything about it disappointed me right down to our UK cover. Most Surprising Book of 2010 Actually have to say the book I just finished the last book of 2010 The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate I wasn’t sure what I was going to make of it but I really enjoyed it. Review will be coming in 2011! Best Series Discovered in 2010 The Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles those Fuentes boys are damn fine! Can’t wait for the last book Chain Reaction in 2011 *fan girl squee* Favourite New Authors you Discovered in 2010 Simone Elkeles, Lauren Oliver, Lauren Kate, Tabitha Suzuma to name a few. Most Hilarious Read of 2010 Either Looking for Alaska by John Green or City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Plenty of LOL’s with those books. Most Thrilling, Unputdownable Book in 2010 Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead I have nothing but love for that book. Book You Most Anticipated in 2010 Again Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead and it didn’t disappoint. Like at all. Favourite Cover of a Book you Read in 2010 Holy smokes this one’s hard! Probably Fallen by Lauren Kate Most Memorable Character in 2010 Alex and Carlos Fuentes & Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy I can’t choose between them and you won’t make me! Most Beautifully Written Book in 2010 Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly such a gorgeously told story. Book That Had The Greatest Impact on You in 2010 Definitely has to be Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. That book just completely changes the way you think and rips your heart out. Book You Can't Believe You Waited Until 2010 to Read The Mortal Instruments series for sure- I still need to read City of Glass! Favourite Review That You Wrote in 2010 Either the review I wrote for Forbidden or Revolution. I put a lot of thought into them and they’ve had so much positive feedback. Best Moment of Book Blogging in 2010 So many. It’s been my first year of blogging so all of it’s been incredible. Getting followers and finding out that people are actually interested in my opinions. Getting picked up by publishers to review their books. Getting signed books from favourite authors. Interacting with so many wonderful bloggers and authors. Getting to meet fellow book blogger and good friend Ellie for the first time. All of it’s just been fantastic! New Favourite Book Blog You Discovered in 2010 With it being my first year as a blogger all of the blogs I’ve discovered have been wonderful and new to me. My personal favourites and the bloggers that made me feel so welcome though are Ellie & Rach (duh) Leanna, Luisa, Amanda, Vicki, Lyndsey and Ginger. I’ve come to know and love these girls’ lots :)


  1. You picked some great books out there. I was quite surprised that you didn't enjoy Infinite Days. I just finished that one and loved it. I must admit though, the UK cover isn't up to much. Happy New Year :)
