30 Days of Books – Best Book read in 2010

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.

    I have to second this. Dead Tossed Waves is by far my favorite book from last year, with the Forest of Hands and Teeth not that far behind it! Those two books left me raw and exhausted by the end of them (I read them practically back to back). Carrie Ryan can spin an amazing tale, and nothing in those books is truly ‘safe.’ It made my heart ache all that much more, never knowing who or what would be lost.
