Your Favorite Reads - 2010 [2]

I'll get right to the chase - here are MORE of what your answers from the Blogoversary Contest!
What was your favorite 2010 release?

"Changeless by Gail Carriger, it must have been the funniest, most entertaining book I've read all year. I loved everything about it till the end where I was totally shocked by well the ending. What I really enjoyed was the great sidecharacters and the scenery-change in this book, but what I enjoyed most about it is Gail Carrigers language, I love how she writes."

"I really liked Paranormalcy. It was a refreshing twist on paranormal fiction, and the main character was funny. I also really liked the best friend mermaid who bleeped. :)"

"My favorite? Probably INSIDE OUT by Maria V. Snyder. It was AMAZING! It just had so many twists and turns and FASCINATING mysteries. I loved it."

"Perfect Chemistry because it was the first book I read for a while without any paranormal elements, and it was so cute! It definitely topped some of those paranormal books. I love Brittany and Alex!"

"Jandy Nelson's THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE -- her prose is gorgeous, and she captured difficult emotions really well. I loved this book!"

"Forgive my Fins, because its fun, diferent, cute and i just love mermaids."

"Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld was one of my favorite releases this year. It is set in this amazing world with a steampunk vibe, but also has these creatures created by Darwinists that are hybrids. Lots of action and great characters."

Oh man, more books for me to read. Hmm, can I leave a comment with my favourite book here?
Mine is The Resistance by Gemma Malley. Though the language is simple and without any flamboyand phrases or words, it manages to capture a dark side of humanity perfectly. The characters are well illustrated and real. I also loved the fact that this book poses many questions as to where we are now heading.

Loveeeee 'The Sky is Everywhere'. I stayed up so late reading it in one sitting, because I just couldn't put it down.
