Top ten best books of 2010

Top ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks top ten is Top Ten Books of 2010!! I know I did one of these posts not too long ago, but I'm doing it again. Let's see if any of them changed. These are in no order, just whatever I thought of first.

1. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
This book is epic. It is one of the most depressing series a person could ever read but yet everyone loves it. How could you not love Katniss and Peeta?

2. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White:
I love love love love love the voice and characters in this book! It is one of those books that every time I see it in bookstores, I want to buy another copy I love it that much. I even thought about naming my cat Evie after this (I ended up going with Minerva though).

3. Lost Hero by Rick Riordan:
It's a Rick Riordan book. Of course it was amazing! If you go back to October and look at how many posts I did for this book, I think my love of it will become perfectly clear.

4. Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa:
This book blew me away. I love getting lost in the world Kagawa  has created. It's like another Wonderland or Neverland. It's just fantastic.

5. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer:
It's been over a month and I still can't decide which team I am. Ren or Shay????? Ahhhh!!! They are both fantastic.

6. Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead:
*sigh* Dimitri. Is that enough of an explanation?

7. Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison:
My love of her books is obvious on this blog. I read this book and listened to the audiobook of it twice in about a 3 week time span. Can't get enough of the Hollows.

8. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting:
This is a series that is so messed up and yet I adore it. Being inside the killers head in this one was horrible yet it's what really made the book. Awesome.

9. Nevermore by Kelley Creagh:
This was one of those books that not a whole lot happened, yet I could have gone on for a few hundred more pages just reading about the day to day lives of the characters. They were fascinating and wonderful, then the end just hits you and you go "WHAAAA???????" and can't even finish the word you are in such shock.

10. Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull:
I don't think anyone ever saw that ending coming. I had to read it a few times just to make sure I got it right. Best.Ending.Ever!!!! I kinda went all fan girly and freaked out at Brandon for that ending when I went to one of his signings this year. Couldn't help it, that's what the ending does to you.

Others that should be on this list because 10 was not enough...
The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
You Wish by Mandy Hubbard
Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
Jealousy by Lili St.Crow
For Keeps by Natasha Friend
The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
Dark Divine by Bree Despain
 Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder
Deadly Little Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Okay Okay, so I did 21 and even then that was limiting what I wanted to put on there. I've read 116 books so far this year and I'm supposed to pick only my favorite 10? pshhhh.


  1. I do love Katniss and Peeta, and I want to read your second choice too ! :)

  2. Rick Riordian's fun; I finished his Percy Jackson novels last year, I think.

  3. I completely forgot about Nevermore in my list. It was such a refreshing change from the usual YA novels.
    I have 16 books on my list lol I can totally understand about not being able to come up with only 10.

  4. Loved the Rick Riordan series. Action, adventure, a little romance....and Greek gods.

    Here is my Top Ten of 2010 post:

  8. The Hunger Games made my list - awesome read! I also loved The Iron Daughter. The Body Finder and Nevermore have been on my TBR list for ages now, I really have to get to them!

    Great list.

  9. Yay, first person to see The Lost Hero on their list like its on mine!!!

    Heard of most of the those books and some I haven't, I'll look into them :D

    New follower :D

  10. You are the second person that I have seen The Lost Hero on.... think I may have to add it to my TBR list! Kat

  11. I also can't decide between Ren and Shay! I keep going back and forth, but I leaning towards Ren a bit more especially with how the book ended.

  12. Excellent list. Some are on mine (well, the one I haven't written as of yet...) and some--looks like I'll have to add more books to my TBR pile.

    Here's to Happy Reading in 2011!
    The Book Swarm

  13. Body Finder is on my Wishlist, I have seen it on a few favourite list this week.

    I also love all of Lisa Schroeders books.

  14. I completely agree with you about Nightshade! I have absolutely no idea if I'm Team Ren or Shay. Some chapters I loved Ren and other chapters I was all about Shay. What's a girl to do? :)

  15. I've seen Nightshade in the bookstore...I think form your list I would like to read that.

  16. I TOTALLY agree! I loved many of the books on this list (Nightshade, Iron Daughter, The Hunger Games, and Clockwork Angel, to name a few...) and really want to read many of the others!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
