Oooo, that is a tough question as I've read a few good books this year already....
Ooo, what do I pick!?!

In YA I finally read The Mortal Instruments series and LOOOVED it. In Adult, I read Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells and Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre then just now Bloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron. But I also read Chasing the Bard by Philippa Ballantine. All these books are amazing and a little different from each other. :)

Oh but to pick one is to hard. lol

Thank you!

Thank you so very much for the awesome chance to win♥

I don't know that I can pick just ONE book.... I am on book 37-38 of 2011 and I've loved them all. I think ONE of my top faves of the year would have to be Demon Kissed by H.M. Ward! it was AMAZING! I can't wait for book two to be released. such and awesome spin on things, and it's not a paranormal story I've heard before. very different than all the others.
but there are TONS more to that list. lol.
