Well, I will go ahead and reveal that my #1 was Lips Touch by Laini Taylor...because I bought a hardcover copy I want to give away to addict someone else to its utter brilliance! Keep reading for contest details. To view #2-5 you'll have to click over to the Book Smugglers. (Yes, I am making you work for it!)
My next ten YA reads of 2009 (#6-15) in no particular order:
Genesis by Bernard Beckett (the only male author on the list!)
And my favorite non-YA read this year was The Help by Kathryn Stockett, followed by How to Buy a Love of Reading by Tanya Egan Gibson and Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch.
So want to win my favorite book of 2009, Lips Touch? Or maybe the library queue is too long for The Help and you'd like me to buy you a copy of that one? Just tell me what YOUR favorite book of 2009 was in the comments. I'll pick one winner for Lips Touch and one for The Help so make sure you also tell me your preference in your comment.
I'll give extra entries for:
+1 Leaving a comment at my guest post at The Book Smugglers
+1 Linking to my contest from your blog (sidebar is fine)
+1 For tweeting (include @lenoreva in your tweet)
I'll keep the contest open until January 11th at 11:59 CST, and I will send internationally! Happy reading in 2010.
