My favorite books of the DECADE!! 2000-2010

Happy New Year everyone! Instead of doing a Favorite list for 2010, I'm doing a favorite list for the entire decade. Now, I know many of you out there are of the belief that the decade ended LAST year when we entered 2010, but I am one of those kooky people who firmly believes that the decade started in 2001, so it ended at midnight last night.  I know, I may be crazy.

Anyway, I thought it would be cool to go back and look at the books that have made my decade more interesting, the books that made me want to start reading again.

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling 
I was one of those people who was reluctant to pick the first book up. I didn't want anything to do with what everyone else was reading (this is actually a habit of mine. I always try to ignore the "fad" but sometimes, I get hooked. . .)

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I have yet to see The Lovely Bones because I can't imagine Stanley Tucci as a bad guy, but it's on my list.

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, and  Target by Kathleen Jefferie Johnson-- both haunting tales about the aftermath of rape. Target was amazing because it is truly from the perspective of a boy.

Impossible: a Novel by Nancy Werlin and The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
I picked up Impossible because I enjoyed Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin. Mockingbirds was pickd up because I kept reading about it on different list-serves and decided to give it a try.

The final entry for my favorites of the decade must be:
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. To this day, this is the only vampire/werewolf series I have been able to read. I think the reason I love this series is because its more romance than supernatural.

I loved the Harry Potter series and Speak, they are definitely among my favourites over the past decade as well.

Stanley Tucci (assuming he was THE bad guy, idk actors names) was plenty creepy...
