Best of 2010

2010 was an interesting year for novels. Honestly it was a struggle to put together a limited list that contained our favorites for the year. Depending on the type of reader you are, this could have been the best year in recent memory, or even a disappointment. Below you will find our list of best reads of 2010 (in no particular order). Keep in mind that this is based upon US releases only, so there may be a few omitted titles. Also keep in mind that Steve cheats and uses full releases by authors rather than just single titles.

    Very excited for the Lynch, Rothfuss & Sanderson books this year. I will have to read some of your best of 2010, embarrassingly I haven't read any of them but The Way of Kings, which would have made my list.

    Thanks for introducing me to Blackout and All Clear; I might never have noticed that series otherwise. It has become one of my favorite. I'm also reading authors like Miéville and Erikson based on your recommendations. I've just started those two but I like what I've read so far. Thanks for all your good work!

    I'm glad to see that you gave an honorable mention to Rot and Ruin. That's one heck of a book, and immediately climbed up my “recommended for my teenage relatives” list.
