Happy New Year! [+end of countdown, the best book is revealed...]

End of 2008 Countdown, book 1
The Host
by Stephenie Meyer
Release Date: May 6, 2008

Read. This. Book.

If I thought I was a fangirl when I was talking about Sweethearts, it's nothing compared to my feelings about The Host.

And in my defense, I did not love this book just because I am a fan of Twilight. I loved this book because it was absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to anyone... even though it's technically not YA, I would still recommend it to teenagers and adults alike. The conflict in the story is such an interesting insight on life and the future, and the characters are diverse and real (although Cameron Quick still wins out as far as characters go). I love this book, and it helped prove to me that Stephenie Meyer is not a one hit wonder (er... I guess it's more than one, since Twilight is a series, but oh well) and that there is still greatness to come now that the Twilight series has ended.

And speaking of ending...
I hope everyone has a fantastic year in 2009!

Also, my contest is now ended, so I will be figuring out the winner and letting them know as soon as possible... However, I may or may not be on vacation when this posts (most likely I'll be in Illinois, a couple hundred miles away from my computer) but you can still expect a winner to be posted within the week!
