This Survey is hosted by Jamie @ The Perpentual Page Turner
1. Best Book You Read In 2011? 
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I didn’t love this book in the beginning but it turned into a quick favorite by the end.
2. Most Disappointing Book/Book You Wish You Loved More Than You Did?
Oh goodness there were so many YA books this year that were molds of previous books. I guess I’m going to have to go with Bloodrose! I love this series but the last book ended on a sour note for me even though I was happy who Calla ended up with.
3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2011?
Kiss of Frost, I did not expect this series to be that EPIC!
4. Book you recommended to people most in 2011?
Nightshade and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
5. Best series you discovered in 2011?
Even though the ending was disappointing, I read the entire Nightshade series this year and it is certainly worth reading because books 1 and 2 are amazing!

6. Favorite new authors you discovered in 2011?
Jennifer Estep, Michelle Hodkin, Andrea Cremer, Jeaniene Frost, Gini Koch, Lisa Schroeder, and so many others.

7. Best book that was out of your comfort zone or was a new genre for you?
Jenny Pox, I really didn’t expect to like this one so much. Normally horror, blood, and gore are not my things but this one really worked for me.

8. Most thrilling, unputdownable book in 2011?
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

9. Book you most anticipated in 2011?
Lover Unleashed by JR Ward

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2011?
There were a lot of gorgeous covers this year but sometimes the cover didn’t make up for the boring storyline underneath the cover. Due to this fact I’m going to skip this question.

11. Most memorable character in 2011? 
Oh godness there were so many…

I’m going to have to go with a secondary character for my choice.
I pick Jamie from Mara Dyer, he is just perfect! I love his sarcastic remarks and how he is there for Mara. He better be coming back in the second book otherwise I’m going to be very upset.
 12. Most beautifully written book read in 2011?
Anything by Lisa Schroeder
13. Book that had the greatest impact on you in 2011? 
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma, just wow! This book will change you.

14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2011 to finally read? 
Halfway to the Grave/ Night Huntress Series!

How on Earth did I wait so long for this series!
I’ve only read the first two books but I’m already in love, love I tell you!

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2011? 

There were so many but I’m going to have to go with…
 “We can love each other.” I swallow hard to ease the constriction in my throat. “There are no laws, no boundaries, on feelings. We can love each other as much and as deeply as we want. No one, Maya, no one can ever take that away from us.” ~Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma pg. 276~
16. Book That You Read In 2011 That Would Be Most Likely To Reread In 2012? 
Catching Jordan! This one just was amazing and I can’t wait to sit down and read it again and again.

17. Book That Had A Scene In It That Had You Reeling And Dying To Talk To Somebody About It? (a WTF moment, an epic revelation, a steamy kiss, etc. etc.) Be careful of spoilers!
The endings of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Forbidden. Both of those endings left me with chills and I wasn’t the same after having read them.

 Looking Ahead…

1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2011 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2012?There are so many that I didn’t get a chance to read and I really want to. Divergent, Wither, Unearthly, Delirium, At Grave’s End, The Iron King, and many many more.

2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2012?
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer book 2!
Lover Reborn by JR Ward, love this adult romance series.
3. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging In 2012?
I just hope to improve my blog and increase my reading in 2012.

    I just finished reading the first in the Night Huntress series and I loved it! I've heard really good thing about Jenny Pox and plan on purchasing soon. ^_^

    I really wanna read Mara Dyer now! I'm so curious about this ending! Got Nightshade on my tbr, which I'm looking forward to, but it's a shame the third book is disappointing. Excited about read Catching Jordan now, too! Thanks for sharing :).

    Nightshade has been on my TBR list for a while. Love the cover.

    But I hadn't heard much about Mara Dyer. Hopefully I'll get a chance to read it in 2012.

    I definitely agree with your about Kiss of Frost – I had no idea how awesome that series was going to be, and now its my favorite!
