Best I've Read 2010

Best I've Read 2010 (BIR2010) December 6-14
A group of nine bloggers got together for the first annual Best I've Read 2010 event. I've been entering book giveaways all week, and got inspired to do my own Best I've Read 2010 list. This is a bit of a departure for me, because I usually do Heise's Hot List based on the school year calendar and the dozen favorite books I read that year. I've decided to try it this way to share my list of favorite YA books I read in the calendar year of 2010 (in no particular order - I have a hard enough time narrowing the list down, no way am I going to rank order it!). These are the books that have stuck with me the most for varying reasons related to the writing, the story, or the message.

Great list! I thought 13 Reasons Why was amazing and can't wait to read Anna and The French Kiss and Dash & Lily's Book of Dares.

I've linked to your list along with some others at my latest blog post at http://yayeahyeah.blogspot.com/2010/12/favourite-books-of-2010-other-peoples.html - I hope you don't mind.
