My YA Favorites of 2010: Part 2

And today's categories are...*drumroll* 

Coolest Creature(s) 
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce (for Fenris werewolves)
  Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund (for killer unicorns) 
Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn 

Best Graphic Novel 
Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin, Lisa Brown 
 Children of the Sea series by Daisuke Igarashi 

Best Movie Adaptations of Books 
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1) by JK Rowling

Best Historical Fiction

Splendor by Anna Godbersen  

All of these books were released in 2010, except for Cleopatra's Daughter, which I read in 2010, but was released in late 2009.

Yikes, I have read so few from your list. I have Sister Red sitting in my reading stack, I will move it up immediately.

Ascendants sounds good with it killer unicorns. Different but good :)
