Grace by Elizabeth Scott ~ Grace's world under the dictatorship of Keran Berj and life as an Angel, a suicide bomber.
6. steamiest scene (or sweetest/sexiest kiss award) -

7. best swoon-worthy moment -
Pg 219 of Saving June by Hannah Harrington. Don't want to spoil it for you but it made me melt.

This Side of The Grave by Jeanine Frost where Kat talks about Slice by Steven Herrick ~ the camping trip and so many more moments.
10. most heart-breaking/tear-jerker moment -
Sweethearts by Sara Zara ~ What happened to Jenna and Cameron when they were kids. Followed by But I Love Him by Amanda Grace ~ Connor and Ann's relationship.
1. fave first sentence
Fury by Shirley Marr. "My name is Eliza Boans and I am a murderer."
2. fave book title -
This Gorgeous Game by Donna Freitas - Simple, elegant and powerful like the book.
3. fave reading experience (ie: created a great reading memory) -
Reading It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han with Nomes of Inkcrush. We had a great time discussing all the swooning. Followed by Saving June by Hannah Harrington with Nomes again and Jess from Tales of Compendium.
4. book with the best food in it (made me so crazy-envious-hungry) -
Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton. ICE CREAM! Followed by the peanut butter scene in Saving June by Hannah Harrington (and I don't like peanut butter lol).
5. book with the most sensual weather (made you shiver/sweat) -
Sixteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton. You felt like you were at the beach.
6. most embarrassing book cover (feeling sheepish in public) -
The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols. It makes it look like a tween book and well I am not a tween. Also Ten Things I Did (and probably shouldn't have) by Sarah Mylnowski. Too kissy for public!
Heist Society by Ally Carter and Graceling by Kristen Cashore. Both I had on my shelf for a year!
Thanks to Nomes for coming up with this awesome list. And sorry about the spacing again. Blogger troubles.
