My favorite UGLIES series book was Uglies. I loved Tally's time in the wild. It was really funny when she got really tired of the Spagbol just like I got tired of Maruchan soups. The rest of the books were good but Uglies was the most memorable for me.

hmmm I don't know.   I loved them all for my own reasons.
Uglies: It was the first book, and I've noticed the first one is usually really good.  I liked how that was when she really made the desision to be with the Smoke-and her and David started being "together" so to speak.
Pretties-She had to fight away the bubble headed ness, and she was strong enough to cure herself.  BUT she called David Ugly in the end, and although I loved Zane and almost cried when (SPOILER) he died, I always liked David better. 
Specials-great book but Tally was a real jerk, and Zane died in that one...but she also make mends with David.
Extras- really liked Aya, she was almost like tally, a kicker by victim of circumstance, like hoe Tally wanted to be a pretty.
But I think all in all I liked Uglies best.

Charu of Midnight13- OMG i SO agree! Uglies was def my fave becuz of the same reason! i also loved the fact that once Tally got to the Smoke, she WANTED to be there and it wasnt just about getting Shay back anymore.

Uglies, but also Specials. I love how, after she changes-ish, her special mind still holds her back (from crying, from expressing emotion, etc.). I also love her connection with David then- it changed, was harder, they'd been through more and I think it was much deeper than it was just after Uglies. And David still wants her, even after all that.

So, I have a question- I'm not sure if I should post it here, but I'm already typing so to hell with it. How much taller is the Special Tally than David? And does she really have pointy- like, triangle- teeth? :o. It just aggravates me most if she's taller than him. I know I'm being anti-feminist or whatnot here, but it seems weird if she's like a foot taller than the guy. (But it's that, plus her muscles and stuff that'd just make her seem like a giant compared to him.) AH! Oh my God I need to shut up. I talk way to much. I'm sorry you had to read my rant.

Extras because I didn't want to cry or scream at any of the characters. Well, maybe a little bit. I like looking at Tally and seeing what she's become after all the painful things she went through. I'm proud of what she is in Extras.
