I am getting to this just in time! I finished my last book of the year today for a total of 110 book in 2010 – which is great for me! Instead of trying to figure out what my favorites were, I am looking at my spreadsheet and listing everything I gave a 10. It doesn’t mean they were all perfect, but they were all amazing reads! I have listed them in order read.
It was my second book of the year and I am still telling people they should read it! It was an excellent story with excellent writing. I am very excited about the movie!
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I got this with a Christmas gift card last year and read it in a day. I could not put it down. I actually started writing my review WHILE I was reading it because I thought the first chapter was so fantastic.
I read the first book last year and immediately loved Stargirl. Well, i think I loved her more in this book! I think educators and parents should read these books!
This was the first book I ever read by David Levithan and it made me want to read more by him. I thought it was a touching and beautiful story. I want to read more about Tiny!
I only waited so long to read it because the list at my library was long. I adored everything about this book. It made me think and started many long discussions with friends and family. I really look forward to the sequel
I loved the next two books so much. I lent them to four friends and ask everyone I meet if they have read the series yet!
This book showed me that Lauren Myracle is more than the ttyl series and can write an amazing paranormal and creepy book.
After reading about the controversy, I had to check out this book for myself. I am so glad I did. I wish it had been around when I was in high school, i would have given it to some girls in my class.
9. Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian
I actually didn’t review one of my favorite books of the year! It was a great read and felt like it was realistic and was one of my most enjoyable reads of the year.
10. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I didn’t review this one either, but so many people have and I agree with them. This is a beautiful, realistic romance. I fell in love with all of the imperfect and lovable characters. Anna may have been my favorite character of the year.
I can’t believe some of the most memorable books of the year weren’t on my list – but thinking about it, these really stood out on the whole!
What were your favorites this year?
