Great picks!

So awesome to see you picked Hush, Hush as number 1! We'll have to add this post to our listing on Fallenarchangel.com as sites and blogs who list Hush, Hush as one of the best books or covers of 2009.

That Hush, Hush cover really is something special. I think I prefer the non-shiny version though. Nice choices!

Great picks, Jen! 2010 has a lot to live up to!

Love The Dark Divine cover too!

Becky said...

I'm surprised The Midnight Guardian isn't there. I love the cover on that book. I'd hang it on the wall if I could. I'm thinking I might like to read No. 10.

Great choices all of them. Hush Hush has a beautiful cover as does Dark Divine.

Oh those are some great picks! I have to agree Hush, Hush would be my number one too!

I really like Eyes Like Stars and Dark Divine. Hush Hush was number 3 on my list with Fallen No.1 (which I'm surprised is not on your list) and Fire as No.2. Great list - lots of covers I haven't seen before too :)

My vote goes for the UK hardcover nights of villjamur, it's amazing. I do love the cover of hush hush though.
