Faves of 2011: Hosted by Inkcrush

I was blog hopping around and I came across this fabulous blog, Inkcrush and the person behind this blog, Nomes, is holding this awesome award list that we bloggers can join in. Although I'm not one of those type A people (definitely not), I love making lists! It's calming for me in a odd way...
Today is Day One and Nomes has these awards lists staggered between a few days. I'm doing the first one today!
Check out her blog and join in on the fun! :)


Q. Favorite book read so far in 2011?
A. How can I possibly just pick one? Well, I guess for now it would have to be Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. That book has EVERYTHING! I love it!

Q.Most powerful book?
A. Hands down it has to be Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. Such a deep and powerful book. Amazing...

Q.Brilliantly Funny?
A.Definitely The Absoloutly True Diary of a Part Time Indian. So brilliant yet it also sends a message!

Q.Best ache-y, heart-breaking, tear-jerker read?
A. Stolen by Lucy Christopher. After I read that I just had to do my school final project on Stockholm Syndrome. That book is amazing...

Q.Most beautiful story?
A. Ophelia by Lisa Klein. It was Shakespeare for god's sake! This book just had a beautiful ending!

Q.DDelicious rainy day comfort read?
Twilight.'s true. When it's dreary outside and I can't make it to the library, well then I always go back to first YA book I read.

Q.AAdrenalin-fuelled, unputdownable award?
A.Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead. When I finally got it, I was so excited I read it in one day. I was obsessed I tell you!

Q.Most atmospheric and vivid setting?
A.Tiger's Curse once again. All the places they went to just stuck in my head!

A. Europe in 13 Little Blue Envelopes! All those places she travels to in Europe? Count me in!

Q.Most original and imaginative?
A.Gone by Micheal Grant. Oh my god, these books are crazy and wild! I love them! There sort of like Lost mixed with Lord of the Flies slash The Maze Runner with kids. It's how the author thought of this!

Q.I-had-no-idea-i-would-love this-so award?
A. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. I saw this on the shelves and I never thought I would like it. But then I decided to try it out and I swear it's one of the best books I've ever read! The review is coming soon!

Q.Most haunting story?
Once again, Stolen by Lucy Christopher.

Q.Outside my comfort zone but gosh how I loved it
A. Gone series by Micheal Grant, once again. I was a bit nervous to try it out but I finally did and I dig it!

Q.Series that I'm loving?
A. Right now it's the House of Night series by the Cast duo. The books have gotten better and better...

Q.Would make the best movie?
A. Jane by April Linder. This would be fantastic for all Jane Eyre lovers around the world!

Q.Want to re-read already?

  1. I stumbled across inkcrush early today and had to join in as well!
    I completely agree with the last Sacrifice choice. I can never put down Richelle Mead's books until they're finished. Love her. That is my favorite series.
    I'm aching to re-read The Hunger Games right now! My sister showed me a great Hunger Games music video parody last night and now I can't stop thinking about those books.

  2. i'm with you on the enjoyment of making lists. i might have to do this as well. :)
