- Most imaginative: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
- Funniest: Audrey! Wait by Robin Benway
- Scariest: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
- Edgiest contemporary: Break by Hannah Moskowitz
- Creepiest SF/dystopia:
- Most evocative historical: Atonement by Ian McEwan
- Best love story: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
- Most hilarious:
- Most disturbing: The beginning of Break by Hannah Moskowitz
- Steamiest: The make-out scenes between Jace & Clary and a couple of scenes in Blood Promise by Richelle Mead.

- Who you'd want as your best friend: Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
- Who you fell in love with: Dmitri from Blood Promise by Richelle Mead, Sam from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, Jace & Simon from the Mortal Instrument series.
- Worst (best?) villain: Valentine from the Mortal Instrument series
- Best character twist (who you loved, then hated, or vice versa): Wyatt from Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves. (It's coming out in 2010, but some scenes I felt like hugging Wyatt and then others I just wanted to slap him.)
- Best character names: I didn't read the whole book and it's on sub, but I think the book with the best character names goes to City of Shadows by Kristin Otts.
- Worst character names:
- Favorite all-around kickass female: Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
- Favorite all-around kickass male: Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instrument series
- Best book cover: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater I love how simple this cover is and I especially like the red dot in the center. It's a small ball of warmth, in a world full of coldness.
- Best title: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
- Most memorable voice: Break by Hannah Moskowitz
- Most memorable first line: Break by Hannah Moskowitz
- Best setting: the Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare
- Most beautiful writing: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
