I think that 2010 has the craziest shit ever! The greatest have ever happened and also the weirdest. And I've also met so many great people this year. And I feel so sad leaving 2010 behind, but I'll always cherish the memories. Crap. I'm being sappy. Haha. So really 2010 was a wonderful year, filled with reading and meeting new people. And since 2010 is about to end I am writing my Best of 2010! :D These books were chosen because they have been crafted with masterful hands and have a vivid and realistic set of characters and settings. There were tons of amazing books that were released this year. So this post was quite hard. (Except for spot #1, I've reserved that spot for one special series.)
1. The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa -
The Iron Fey series has never failed to take me to a different world. Whenever I'm down Puck has never failed to make me guffaw, yes I used guffaw not giggle and not even laugh. And Ash has never (never ever) failed to bring very, very naughty thoughts I'm my mind. (Sorry, Meghan. Peace!) I have so much memories with The Iron Fey. Quite a lot of emotional moments in my life revolved around the series. I have slept, cried and laughed with this series. I would say it was my best friend but Keila would kill me. (So.. If, I, um... Disappear. You know who to blame. *wink wink*) And Miss Kagawa is super AWESOME! I love that woman! :)
2. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger -
God. The DUFF. I love this book SOOO much! It's like a book I could read all the time. I've read it like 20 times already... Or is it 34, I dunno I lost count. Haha. The DUFF is the type of book you can relate to. It relates to us in so many ways. Our insecurities, our family problems and our relationship with friends. I just genuinely love The DUFF. The romance is adorable. I could just cuddle up with Wesley Rush if I could. And Bianca is so different from most lovestruck teens. I really enjoyed The DUFF. I think Kody's hair is really COOL. Haha.
3. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare -
Do I even have to say why? It's set in London. Will is hot as hell. I feel sorry for Jem. Tessa is a very, very strong-willed and tough character. I like her, she has pizzaz! And Cassandra Clare is cool~
4. Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink -
Um... I thought the first was kinda boring but the second totally made up for it. And I totally LOVED it! Go, Dimitri, go! Screw you James. You know what Team I am? I'm Team I-Hope-James-Gets-Screwed-Over. Yeah, that's right.
5. Heist Society by Ally Carter -
I've always been a HUGE fan of Ally Carter. I loved her Gallagher Girls series. I sort of like Heist Society more than the Gallagher Girls series because I found Heist Society more mature and Hale is wayy hot! (Sorry, Zach.) I really enjoyed Heist Society. And I do hope Hale and Kat become closer in Uncommon Criminals.
6. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer -
Hot werewolf action. Haha. I liked it 'cuz it isn't a cliché kind of paranormal novel. So yeah. Go, Team Shay! I can't wait for Wolfsbane and the books have GORGEOUS covers!
7. Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr -
Because I love, love, LOVED the Wicked Lovely series! The story is so exciting and it's like a thrill ride! Half the time I read the books I want to stab Keenan with a fork and half the time I want to make love with Irial! The Wicked Lovely is a very beautiful series! I really, really want to gut Keenan.
8. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting -
I really enjoyed this one because it's haunting and suspenseful and it's really rare for a YA novel to be this mysterious and suspenseful. I also really think Jay is the coolest dude. EVER! I can't wait for Desires of the Dead! :D I want Violet to be my friend so she could find all those animals that died in my childhood. Haha. Just kidding! But I'd be cool to hang out with Violet!
9. Delirium by Lauren Oliver -
I know it isn't a 2010 book but still. I loved it to bits! Such a beautiful heartbreaking novel. It's an emotional thrill ride!
10. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King -
This is the type of novel that you actually have to read to know how to describe it. Well... Let me try. Please Ignore Vera Dietz is a quirky, hardcore, unique and enjoyable read. This book was totally realistic! I really think Vera is a cool person and I would love to hang out with her. I think Charlie was a total, forgive my French, asshole. I can't believe he left her like that. Please Ignore Vera Dietz is a book that has so much emotional distress going on that it makes you enjoy it! Such a unique read, really!
Well... That's it! Thanks for stopping by! :)
