The Fab List: 2010 Releases

The Fab List:
2010 Releases

These are just a few 2010 releases that I highly recommend to you.  Some are by debut authors and some are the work of veterans. A last minute add (read) actually  Either way, these 2010 releases have made my Fab List despite maybe not receiving a 5 star review.

Fab List Top Five-ish of 2010
(in no particular order... one-ish for each month I've been officially blogging)
Note this "-ish"  Sometimes there is no way to number fabulousness.

Forget You by Jennifer Echols
July 20, 2010
MTV Books

Why Read It: Completely Hot and fabulously REAL!  Jennifer Echols definitely doesn't hold back.

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
August 31, 2010
|Goodreads| |Amazon| |Website| |My Review| 

Why Read It: Totally one-of-a-kind and hauntingly extraordinary.  This story and characters have totally stuck with me. 

Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupula
June 22, 2010
Harper Collins

Why Read It:  Amazingly raw and heart wrenching.

Sing Me to Sleep  by Angela Morrison
March  4, 2010

Why Read It:    A tragically, beautiful tear-jerker which had me vested from the get go.  This is another book that has followed me around.  I purchased it as a NookBook (e-book)  but I will soon be looking for a hard copy.  I have to have this in print.

The Iron King + The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
February 1, 2010 + August 1, 2010

Why Read It: Absolutely, one hundred percent, magical and unforgettable.  I just love the characters, even those who maybe I shouldn't.  

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready 
May 04, 2010
Simon Pulse

Why Read It:  Beautifully dark and freakishly fascinating.  Jeri Smith-Ready roped me in on the very first page with a plot that wasn't one tracked or one sided.   A unique read with a little bit of everything thrown in.   

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
April 09, 2009/April 06, 2010 *
|Goodreads| |Amazon| |Website| |My Review|

Why Read It: You know, this was originally released in 2009 but the paperback came on in 2010, which is why I let this make my list.  Beyond that, this book was amazing and I couldn't not let it count ;-)  I was crying by page 22 and couldn't set it down.  It was intense and heart breaking all at the same time soothing.  

Honorable Mention:

Here are a few (or more!) books I read and highly enjoyed.

  1. I have Forget You and If I Stay sitting on my kitchen table now! They are definitely going to be read soon :-)

    I really liked Nevermore too. I thought it was a nice twist on the usual paranormal romance we tend to read about.

    Nice list!

  2. Loved your list! It dangerously added a few titles to my ever-growing Amazon Wish List though. Eek! ;)
