So, without further ado, here are the five best books I read in 2010:
I put off reading The Hunger Games for so long, fearing that it wouldn't live up to all the hype. But I'm very glad that I finally read it. It's one of those books that's so thought-provoking that it makes you wonder about your own life... and if something similar could happen to our own world if we're not careful.

I'm a sucker for stories about reincarnation. Unfortunately, they're usually not done very well. In this case, though, Ann Brashares has crafted a beautiful story about two people who keep being drawn together in life after life, only to be separated once more. I can't wait to read the upcoming books in this planned trilogy.

This was a hardcover that I found in the bargain bin. It sat in my TBR pile for a while before I finally got to it, but I wish I had read it sooner. It's a dark sort of fairy tale with unforgettable settings and characters... and even more unforgettable villains. While not for the faint of heart, The Book of Lost Things is a must-read for readers who enjoy a well-imagined story.

This is one book that definitely lived up to the hype surrounding it. While the book doesn't have the most original premise (think Groundhog Day meets Mean Girls), I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded. Plus, the writing was refreshingly beautiful. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

Tiger Moon was the best book I read in 2010. A magical, romantic fairy tale set in British India, this is a book that combines unforgettable characters with a beautiful narrative that makes you believe in love and the power of stories.
