Best Books of 2010

It's that time of year again...time for all the Best Books of the Year lists!  I don't often have a chance to read brand-new hardcovers, but I follow book news of new releases pretty carefully and add the ones that sound good to my ever-growing To-Be-Read list.

Here's BookPage's List of the Top 40 Books of 2010.  I haven't read any on this list yet, but several are on my TBR list, and a couple are sitting on my shelf waiting: The Passage (birthday gift) and Saving CeeCee Honeycut.  I'm dying to read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and Unbroken is on my Christmas list!

Amazon's 100 Best Books of 2010 is an annual tradition.  Their Editor's Choice list has many of the same titles as BookPage's but also includes some more popular titles.  I've read one on this list, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

How about you?  Have you read any of the top books of 2010?  Do you agree with the books on these lists?  What are your top books of 2010?

I'll wait until the year is really finished before I put my own list together.

(If you're interested in kids' and YA books, check out the lists at Great Books for Kids and Teens).


  1. I don't like to read these lists until I've made my own (no outside influence that way)...LOL (I'll be back).

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I've read three on Book Pages list and another 5 on Amazon's. And like you, a few on my TBR list. I'm sure I'll be adding a few more! BTW, I LOVED the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Don't miss that one!
