Top 10 Favorite Books (currently...)

Here is a list of my top 10 favorite books!
My favorite books change weekly if not daily. Probably the next book I decided to read this week, is going to end up being one of my favorites. Probably just because I only read books I am really sure I am going to love!

But I really tried to narrow it down to get a good combination of all time favorites, and my current favorites. I tried very much to rank them, but it got hard to choose so it's kind of in no particular order, but not exactly!

10. Uglies Saga - It would be impossible to create this list without giving most credit to this series. If my best friend hadn't given me the first book in the series to read back in the 8th grade, I would not have even know a Young Adult genre existed. I fully hail credit to this series for the love of reading I have today, (this and fictionpress.com but that's another story). This series is forever one of my favorites. It's futuristic fiction, with sci-fi, and romance, and so much action, and betrayal, and drama, and all that good stuff!

9.  Vampire Kisses- To be honest, I probably never would have heard of this book if I hadn't read an excerpt of the second book of this series in Seventeen Magazine. Oh yes, you heard that right, way back 3 summers ago. And it wasn't just any excerpt, they extracted the sexiest, most thrilling, and romantic part of the book they could find and just stamped it right on a page. I was at a lost, and thus, a vampire fanatic was born. These books are so sweet and romantic and I like how they take me back to the traditional Draculaesk vampires from back in the day. You know the Gothic, batty, princesses and princes of the night!

8. The Dark Hunters Series- Favorite adult series by far. No doubt. I don't really like to compare books but I love this series for the same reason so many adore J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. Sherrilyn Kenyon's characters are all so different and individual and unique characters that I can't help but get attached. I like each character for a different reason because they are all so developed and original. All the guys are different and have you falling in love with all of them throughout the series!

 7. Asleep [review]- This is one of the books I am painstakingly awaiting the sequel to. It is really an incredibly book with amazing characters! I can say with complete content that if I could only have one fictional guy brought to life for my amusement (and staring privileges), it would definitely be Micah. Tall, dark, superhero Micah. He can fly...nuf said!

6. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side [review]- This book blew me out of the water ten-fold! I don't know why because Beth Fantaskey's other book Jekel Loves Hyde was completely amazing I should have expected as much. But WOW. This book represents a paranormal romance at its ABSOLUTE best! Lucius is definitely high up on my top ten hot guys that should soooo be brought to life!

5. Wake Series [review]- This series is incredibly. I love how emotional it can make me. The whole story surrounding it is supernatural, yet the emotions and the characters are still so real that it is still a story that makes the biggest impact. Not only the topics and the characters in this series, but the romance. It is all so intense. It is really hard to describe, I just think everybody needs to read this series!

4. The Darkest Powers [review]- One of my favorite series ever. I liked the mix of all the different kinds of paranormal characters. My favorite character was Derek, he seemed like he was a really mean guy at first, but then he eventually turned into my favorite character! I can't wait to read The Gathering.

3. Twilight- Need I say more? Of course! I love The Twilight Series. This series actually marks a milestone in my "reading journey" since it was the first time I actually finished a book in one day! Love, love, love it! BTW my favorite Twilight character of all time is without a doubt Alice. I wish their was a whole separate story on Alice's and Jasper's lives.

2. The Pace [review]- My favorite book of 2009! Just a terrifically written and engrossing read! I love pretty much everything about it except...the killer CLIFFHANGER. It was the most intense cliffhanger I have ever seen in a book. Wes is another one of my favorite male characters in books. He's not perfect and he knows it, and that's just part of his charm. And Sophie is one of my favorite female characters just because she knows what she wants, and she goes for it, without backing down.

1. Vampire Academy [review]- Favorite series ever! I love everything about these books. The drama the romance, and then more drama and more romance. Rose and her kick-ass confident ways. Dimitri with his tall, hot, older guy sexiness. All the action, the scheming, the love triangles. When Richelle Mead adds anything to the series, she makes sure it is packed with as much tension and drama, and all the good stuff it can have. All time favorite always and forever!

I am going to cheat and show anyways what was so close to making the list:
I am the Messenger [review]
Jekel Loves Hyde [review]
Perfect Chemistry Series [review]
Intertwined
Mediator Series

As a closing statement: I DARE YOU! to try and narrow your favorite books, of all time or just of this month down to 10! Leave a comment telling your TOP 10, or top 9, or top 8...!!!
