The Broke and the Bookish), we are reviewing our favorite reads of 2010. But I've come across a problem that I'm pretty sure will not be an issue for most people. I can only think of eight.
1. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: One of the best YA authors out there right now. This book was fantastic, and so well written.
2. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness: Blew me away. I need to read these sequels and keep procrastinating. I have no idea why.
3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie: Okay, this was a reread, but it's still one of the best books I read this year, and ever.
4. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson: See above.
5. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli: I listened to this one on CD. Part of the reason I loved it so much is because John Ritter narrated it. In fact I love it so much, I just ordered it.
6. Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale: A fantastic fairy-tale fusion of a graphic novel. A little steampunk, a lot of fractured fairy tales, some Western stuff going on—all of it's good.
7. Paper Towns by John Green: I need to read more of John Green's stuff. I loved this, but I think I especially loved it because I listened to it on audio. Dan John Miller, the narrator, was absolutely unbelievable. I HIGHLY recommend this audiobook, especially for people who need to have a good experience listening to one.
8. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor: Finally got around to reading (well, listening) to this one. Another great audiobook, narrated by Lynne Thigpen.
That's all I can think of, honestly. I'm sure I've read other fantastic books this year but unfortunately I haven't kept track of them all. I think I'll do that in 2011. What are yours?
