Top 10 Books Read in 2010

In no particular order, here are my Top 10 books of 2010-

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Must I explain why? St. Clair, St. Clair, and a little bit of St. Clair. No, in all honesty I just love this book so so so much. Stephanie Perkins is a debut author that will likely become very well known because of her amazing writing abilities. Very few authors can pull off such an amazing romance story.

2. The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

I loved this book from the moment I read the first chapter. Whitney wrote a novel that I really hope will be a classic taught in schools because everybody should read it. She handles a very controversial topic with extraordinary grace while still being truthful to her readers.

3. Sea by Heidi R. Kling

Drama! Heartbreak! Traveling! Sea by Heidi R. Kling has everything you could want in a Young Adult book. Yet another great debut author.

4. Break by Hannah Moskowitz

I regret putting off reading this book. I love Break with every fiber of my being. Hannah Moskowitz tackles the boy perspective perfectly. I am in love with this book and I can't recommend it enough to people.

5. RAE by Chelsea Rae Swiggett

This is possibly the only memoir I've ever read and it has helped me a great deal. I won't go into details, but Chelsea's story gave me somebody I could relate to. I have re-read RAE man times over and I think I'll keep re-reading it in the years to come.

6. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn

This book is just plain lovely. The dialogue, the descriptions, everything! It is not surprise that I am a complete David Levithan fangirl. Out of the three books that this duo have written, this is my favorite. It's so light and gets you into the Christmas mood. I also love Dash, he reads. I love characters that read.

7. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

This book is so real. Kody Keplinger writes a story that you can believe. Nearly everybody can relate to it in one way or another, which I loved. Kody has an original voice that teens everywhere will love. Yet another lovely lovely debut book.

8. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler

There is something to be said for a book that you read straight through in a tour hour car ride. Sarah Ockler is my hair twin and an amazing writer. Her books SHINE with amazing. They're all so lyrical and intense. LOVE.

9. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I'm not a huge fan of fantasy but I will read anything Julie Kagawa writes. The Iron King is a fantastic series that I am completely in love with. Ash and Puck are both lovely boys *or... men* in these books that always spark a Team Ash or Team Puck discussion. The writing is amazing, as are the characters.

10. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken

After much nagging to read Brightly Woven, I finally read it. My oh my, was it amazing! This is another fantasy book that broke my no-fantasy barrier. I couldn't stop reading this book. I love the adventures and the romance! It's priceless.



There are many other books I read in 2010 that I loved. I had to limit this list to only 10 of them, though.

I loved Brightley Woven too! It was on my staff picks for a while. So glad you enjoyed it as well! It seems we have some very similar tastes in books!
