Best Books That I Read in 2010

I didn't read a lot of books by any means, and hardly any debut novels, which is lame. But anyway, here are my favorites..




Stargirl
by Jerry Spinelli - Wonderful book about being true to one self. Stargirl is a character that I aspire to be. 


Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin (review to come) - Told from the view of a girl that is dead is always interesting. Definitely a book that makes you think about the afterlife, I know I did! 

Nothing Like You by Lauren Strasnick - I read this in one setting. Short but very amazing. I'm sad that I didn't get my hands on Strasnick 2010 book! 

Viola In Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani - Boarding school at its best. Lots of film and theatre aspects! I can't wait to read the sequel!! 

The Summer series by Jenny Han  (reviews to come) - Great characters and even though it's a summer read it still has lots of depth. I can't wait to get my hands on the final book!          
                       
Perfect Chemistry and Rules of Attractions by Simone Elkeles - HOT!! I can not wait for the third book! 


My Most Excellent Year: A Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park
- GLBT, BOSTON RED SOX, BROADWAY. Could this book get any better?!

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins (reviews to come) - You've seen all the wonderful reviews of this book; they are absolutely right! Because of this series (which I just ate up and even got to go to Chicago and see Collins) I now have a craving for dystopian novels! Thankfully, there will be a few of these coming out this year! 

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart - E. Lockhart is fabulous! This book features FEMINISM (I'm a feminist, obviously) and BOARDING SCHOOLs AND SERCET SOCIETY. I am in love. One of my favorite books ever.

Great post! I can't believe how few of those books I've read. But I did read the Hunger Games series in 2010 and absolutely adore it. I love E. Lockhart as well so I really need to check out The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks - what a title!x
