Wondrous Reads Top 10 Books of 2010

I remember doing these lists at the same time last year, and they weren't nearly as difficult. I think that goes to show what a wonderful year for YA 2010 has been. I have agonised over this list for days, but I've finally narrowed it down to my 10 favourite books published this year. Here they are!

10. The Invisible Order: Rise of the Darklings by Paul Crilley




9. Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne




8. The Thirteen Curses by Michelle Harrison




7. The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams




6. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han




5. Firelight by Sophie Jordan




4. Matched by Ally Condie




3. Flyaway by Lucy Christopher




2. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver




1. The Legacy by Gemma Malley


Here's to 2011. Happy reading, everyone!

I admire anyone that can pick 10 favourite reads and put them in order.
I would be shuffling them about forever - I would be lost to the world in a random shuffling void lol
