This is Part 2 of my responses to the end-of-the-year survey from Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner. Check out Part 1: Anna's Best of Books 2010 here.
New Favorite Book Blog You Discovered in 2010
Um, how about ALL of them? I'm not going to play favorites, but if you follow me on Twitter @annareadsbooks, you'll find my chat buddies. They are hilarious, and so are their blogs.
Favorite Review I Wrote in 2010
My review of A Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty was written before I realized other people would read my blog. I wrote a lot more like myself back when I first started. Reading this again reminds me that I should be a little less stuffy in my reviews.
Best Discussion on My Blog
Adults, Why Do You Read YA?
It was fascinating to hear everyone's reasoning for spending so much time reading about teen life as grown women. Bonus: It spurred at least four similar posts on other blogs. I love that!
Most Thought-Provoking Review/Discussion on Another Blog
I loved Jamie's discussion about book blogger etiquette at The Perpetual Page-Turner. It's a sensitive topic, but it was great to follow along with the comments.
Also, Steph Su had a great post recently about love and its portrayal in the books we read. Check it (and her! she's fantastic!) out here.
Best Event I Participated In
I adore writing up my Top 10 Tuesdays, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.* People love them some lists.
*I recognize I am five seconds away from sounding like I'm sucking up to Jamie. But I just really enjoy her, okay!?
Best Moment of Book Blogging in 2010
Meeting Tara from Fiction Folio for multiple book signing outings. We clicked instantly and laughed our asses off.
Best Bookish Discovery
NetGalley.com is the best, hands down. Galleys sent straight to my Kindle? Um, yes, please. They are spoiling me, and I love every second of it.
What a year it's been! I feel so blessed to have started blogging this year, to have read so many great books and to have met so many lovely fellow bloggers and authors. Looking forward to 2011!
