30 Days of Books – Day One – What was the best book you read in 2010?
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins was amazing. And Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was superb. But I have to give this award to the fabulous dystopian zombie novel The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan.
Each character is so well-defined by their fears, dreams, and hopes that your heart will ache for each one of them, but in very different ways.
I read this in the Spring of 2010, and can still remember some of the scenes so clearly in my head, it’s as if I just read the book yesterday. That’s how I define a great novel – one that stays with you and calls to you long after you’ve closed it and placed it back on the bookshelf.
