I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Top 10 books of 2010

2011 is nearly here so I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy new year!!!

2010 has been amazing in terms of some of the fantastic books I've read and new authors I've discovered.  I've bought so many new books that my bookshelves are really starting to sag and I'm going to have to spend some time trying to sort out all the piles that are also stacking up on my bedroom floor.  My blog is just over 4 months old and I'm looking forward to trying to make it even better next year, with lots of new content and reviews.  I've really enjoyed my blogging experience so far and I'd just like to thank everyone who has been encouraging or clicked the follow button, or taken the time to comment on my posts.  I really appreciate it.

I thought I'd finish the year off by posting my list of 'Top 10 Books of 2010'.  These are titles that I've read this year and loved, but they haven't necessaily been published this year.  Also, I tried to put them in order but gave up because I couldn't decide which I enjoyed the most, so here they are (in no particular order!).

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


2. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore


3. Need by Carrie Jones


4. Graceling by Kristin Cashore


5. Fat Cat by Robin Brande


6. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han


7. Wildthorn by Jane Eagland


8. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer


9. Spells by Aprilynne Pike


10. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine


It was really hard to narrow down the list to just ten books!  Some of these I've chosen because I discovered the series this year (such as the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine) and love them, so I've picked the first book because it introduced me to a great new author.

I'll be posting my 'Top 10 Most Eagerly Anticipated 2011 Books' in the next week.  So come back to check it out!

  2. Great choices! Anna is definitely near the top for my list as well. I also enjoyed I Am Number Four. I hope to get on to Graceling and The Summer I Turned Pretty as well as Wildthorn in 2011.

  3. Wonderful choices and some really neat UK covers. I must say that I absolutely adored Glass Houses. Rachel Caine is just a wonderful writer.

  4. Some terrific choices. I adore Graceling, and need to get Wildthorn, which will satisfy two challenges in 2011, Wish I'd read that and Historical fiction.

    Have a very Happy Ne Year!
