Best of 2 0 1 0

Click on the pictures to go to my reviews!
I saved my favorite of the year for last!

Best Young Adult

Honorable Mention: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Best Non-Fiction (overall)

No review yet... sorry!

Honorable Mention: Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn

Best Non-Fiction (of those published in 2010)

These two sort of go together... I can't really separate them.

Best Women's Fiction

Best Literary Fiction

Honorable Mention: This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper (not yet reviewed)

Best of 2010

I have two for this category... one published this year and one published prior to this year. And they're related. (I have two honorable mentions, and those are the two above this listed as best literary fiction)


Looking forward to another year of great reading!

You have such good books on your list! I also liked Before I Fall, Half the Sky, Room and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (I read this one a few years ago). Girl in Translation is sitting on my TBR shelf

Wonderful list - I like how you broke it down. Blessings of the Animals and Girl in Translation are on my list for 2010. Room was honorable mention (I listened to it and thought it was really good).
This is Where I Leave You was on my 2009 list - loved it.
Happy New Year!

Great list - I've really got to get Zeitoun - I've heard so much good about it. And after Before I Fall, I am really anxious to read Delirium - I'm so hoping she turns out to be a go-to author!

Ok, that's it! I have heard so many good things about Before I Fall, and this mention just pushes me over the edge! I am going to buy it this week! I also really want to read the Dave Eggers after reading Jenners' review. These all look like great books and most of them are going on my short list to pick up soon! Have a great New-Years, Jenny!

Great list of books! I haven't read many of them, but quite a few are on my wish list.

Cool list. I need to try Between Friends :)

Jenny said...

Helen: Ooh I think you'll like it!! Get to it soon! =)

Mary: I think you'll like those two. It seems like we like a lot of the same ones!

Rhapsody: Me too!! I have the ARC... just need to get to it!

Zibilee: Don't you love when that happens and you finally decide you have to read it? LOL! I hope you like it!

Trisha: I'd recommend any of them! =)

Juju: I really think you'd like it!

I love dividing the best of my genre! I did that in 2009, but in 2010 I focused so much on literary fiction (what I most want to read), my top was all literary fiction. I'm glad to see we agree on Room and If You Follow Me (I've seen so many ho hum reviews of that one!) Both Girl in Translation and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn are on my TBR, so I'll try to get to those soon! Happy 2011!

I have Before I Fall sitting on my shelf. I need to get to that one! I have A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Room and Girl in Translation all on my TBR list so I'm glad to see you enjoyed them so much!

Happy reading for 2011! :)

Great list. I really want to read Blessings of the Animals. And I guess I should add Girl in Translation to the TBR, huh?

Stephanie said...

Great list -- I haven't read any of these yet, though they all look good. Happy New Year, Jenny!
