My YA Favorites of 2010: Part 1

And the categories are...*drumroll*

Best Dystopia 

Mockingjay by Suzanne Colins 
Best New Series Book 
  The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan 
 The Dead-tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan 
Lies by Micheal Grant 

Most Amazing Fantasy/Sci-fi World 
 Pegasus by Robin McKinley 

Best Short Story Collection 
Zombies vs Unicorns (edited by Larbalestier, Black) 
 The Poison Eaters by Holly Black 

Best Modern Faerie Tale 
Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

 
Well, what do you guys think?  There are more categories to come-- I'm thinking of making this a three-part series of posts, since it's so much fun.  The linked titles lead to reviews, except the Incarceron one, which leads to my giveaway.  Anyway, drop a comment saying which book you would nominate for whatever category, which book you wouldn't, etc.  
Next up: Best Graphic Novel and Coolest Fantasy Creature(s).
