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.
