Thursday Link Up - New Year's Edition

What's going on in the YA Blogosphere this last day of 2009? Well, lots of Best of... lists as you might imagine.

Zoe of Zoe's Book Reviews has a list of her 10 Favorite Blogs of 2009 (and a cool new layout, too).

Natalie at Mindful Musings wrapped up her Reader's Choice week with a Top 10 Book-to-Movie Adaptations list--check it out to see if your favorite made the cut.

Prophecy Girl at Wondrous Reads has posted a list of her 10 favorite book covers of the year. It's a good list, although I'm biased toward the covers in our store :)

But hey, if you're still in a Christmas/gift-giving (or gift-recieving) frame of mind, check out Contest: Stitch Style Mittens from Haleyknitz at the Life (and Lies) of an Inanimate Flying Object:

I have decided to do something kind of special: I’m giving away a pair of hand-knit mittens or gloves!

And if you're not into noisy New Year's Eve parties, how about a cosy readathon? Bookworming in the 21st Century is hosting a New Year Read-a-Thon and a Reading into the New Year event:

So, to start off. My goal is to read at least 24 hours. I'm going to see what books I get through closer to the date and then post about the pile of books I want to get through.

Sounds like fun, doesn't it? However you decide to spend tonight, though, I hope you have a fabulous (and SAFE) New Year's Eve--and a wonderful 2010!
