1. Looking for Alaska by John Green
I felt like I wanted to be in this story, and I didn't want to slap any of the characters.
2. Artichoke's Heart by Suzanne Supplee
This one hit close to home with it being about a girl with actual weight problems, who actually struggled with them, and didn't magically reach a magical (and realistically unattainable) happy ending like other "fat girl" books.
3. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
A little less interesting than Looking for Alaska, but John Green rocks my literary socks. And I liked Hassan's character.
4. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
I haven't done my official review for this yet, but Dash used a vocabulary that would make my English teacher from last year feel inferior.
5. 1984 by George Orwell
Of course I picked a classic. Seriously though, I did enjoy this book, even if I did have to read it for school.
And to complete this post, I must sum up 2010 in a book title....
The Middle-Aged and Restless
Oh yeah... I went there.
