I was only going to pick 20 books for this list but I couldn’t narrow it down so it’s 25. 2010 was just such an amazing book year!
(in no particular order) (links to my reviews)
#1-Nevermore by Kelly Creagh-Such an amazing story. Probably the best debut of 2010, in my opinion. The next book cannot get here fast enough!
#2-Zen And Xander Undone by Amy Kathleen Ryan-This was such a cute story. It didn’t get the recognition that I feel it deserved.
#3-The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting-This is a very unique story. It’s super creepy but I loved it. I can’t wait to read Desires Of The Dead!
#4-Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken-I don’t read much fantasy but I am so glad that I read this one. Alexandra Bracken has an amazing imagination and I loved her book. I really hope the sequel gets published.
#5-The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson-This is such a beautiful book. I laughed and I cried. A lot.
#6-Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins-Hex Hall is fabulous. It was so unique and amazingly funny. I loved everything about it.
#7-Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver-This one was a little slow in the beginning but I am glad that I didn’t give up on it. It was so good!
#8-Heist Society by Ally Carter-I loved Ally Carter’s first series but I have to say that this one might be better. I had the hardest time putting this one down.
#9-Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves-This is definitely the weirdest book that I have ever read but I say that in the best possible way. Dia Reeves has quite the imagination.
#10-The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard-This is another one of those books that made me cry. Jennifer Hubbard is a beautiful writer and I can’t wait for more from her.
#11-Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins-Do I really need to say anything about this one? Great ending to the trilogy no matter what everyone else thinks. Team Peeta all the way!
#12-Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare-I don’t know what to say about this one. I just loved it. The setting was probably the best part for me.
#13-Jane by April Lindner-A modern retelling of Jane Eyre. Do I need to say more? If so, I loved it. I can’t praise it enough. Read it!
#14-I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan-This is the cutest book I have read in a long time. I feel that every confused teenage girl should read this one. You are not alone.
#15-Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen-I love Anna Godbersen. Everything that she has written so far, I adored. This one was no exception.
#16-Paranormalcy by Kiersten White-Another fabulous debut. I loved Paranormalcy so much. Evie cracked me up and Lend made me swoon. I can’t wait for the sequel.
#17-Being Jamie Baker by Kelly Oram-This one had a little bit of everything in it. There was romance, superhero powers, and one really evil guy. I couldn’t stop reading!
#18-The Iron King by Julie Kagawa-I love anything to do with fairies and these are not your ordinary fairies. They were so awesome. I recommend this one all the time. =]
#19-The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa-See #18.
#20-Sea by Heidi Kling-I loved Sea. It was so moving and beautifully written. I am dying for more from Heidi Kling.
#21-Salvaged by Stefne Miller-I can’t say enough about Salvaged. It’s an amazing book and I don’t feel that it has gotten the recognition that it deserves. Check it out!
#22-The Agency by YS Lee-This series is fantastic. It’s a great historical but it’s also a great mystery. The third book is so far away though.
#23-Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus-Great debut! Anastasia Hopcus wrote a great mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.
#24-Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes-This was my first book by Jennifer Lynn Barnes but definitely not my last. I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by her until now. She’s awesome.
#25-Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare-Yes I only just read this series. I hate myself for waiting so long. I can’t wait for City Of Fallen Angels. =]
