10.Most Memorable Character in 2012?
everytime someone asks me what is your favourite character it seems hard to pick and all the authors make all the guys sound the best i tend to just go back to the same one and that would be Juliette from Shatter Me the first book i read this year. she seems to have that powerful voice that she doesn't realise she is so vulnerable in the start but at the end she is more powerful.

11. Most beautifully written book in 2012?
Now most beautifully written normally means i have cried at the end and there were a few this year and it is really hard to pick this one because i didnt cry yet it was inspiring this book is Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer.

12. book had the greatest impact on you in 2012?

b) the next scene its very different its the scene from the selection where aspen goes to america i dont want you to have my life i want you to go and stay with the prince an then breaks up with her and thats only within the first 50 pages i was heart broken and dint know how maxon would live up to aspen.
