I was debating whether or not to post, but come on, I have to talk about the fact that we're approaching January 1st!
So, I'm not going to get all technical, but I need to tell you some of the highlights of the year.
So, top 10 in 2010: (I only started recording books in March or so, so I have no idea how much I read)(No order)
- Crank by Ellen Hopkins-I can't believe it took me so long to read her books, Hopkins is wonderful!
- Angel Experiment by James Patterson-This book was sitting on my pile for a while. Then I got an audiobook, but for a bit I couldn't use my iPod, so I picked up the copy I had hanging around, and kinda read the whole book (and went back to finish the audiobook) Great.
- Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater- I don't know what to say. LOVE HER
- Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel-mind-blowing and beautiful
- Graceling by Kristin Cashore-She's my top author. Ever. (Beats even Shiver)
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins-of course HG is in here, but this was my favorite of the series.
- Babylonne by Catherine Jinks-I'm really not much of an historical fiction fan. I mostly read the Roman Mysteries (MG) but I LOVED Babylonne. It's a companion to a quartet I never read, but I loved this book
- Candor-I reviewed this a few days ago, gushing about the awesomeness.
- Night Whispers by Erin Hunter-MG, but I've been reading Warriors for years. This book reminded me of a soap-opera, but I still really enjoyed it.
- Iron King-just incredible with awesome characters
Top 11 in 2011 that I look forward to:
- Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton-my longtime followers will know I've been drooling after this for a while
- Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore-I need to explain?
- Forever by Maggie Stiefvater-see "Bitterblue" above
- Iron Queen+Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa-LOVE her, and I don't consider putting 2 books together ascheating
- Enclave by Ann Aguirre-I've been waiting for this book back from the old name and cover
- Steel by Carrie Vaughn-Swords and evil people? What can be better?
- Shur'tugal by Christopher Paolini-remember that dude? Who sold millions of dragon novels? Well, he's supposedly publishing the last one this year!
- Stolen Nights by Rebecca Maizel-look at the above list for proof of my LAV
- Across the Universe by Beth Revis-Sci-fi mystery? I've heard a lot about this one!
- Vanish by Sophie Jordan-I spent ages waiting for Firelight, and it left me in suspense
- Illusions by Aprilynne Pike-loved the first two Wings books, can't WAIT!
