Top 5 Books in 2010

Well, since 2010 is almost ending, I’m going to make a list of the top 5 book I’ve read in 2010, that I really, really, loved and is now one of my favorite books.

No. 5
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
The first time I read this book, I was about 11 years old. I couldn’t finish it. I got bored and just put my bookmark between the pages, and got on with another book.
Then, I decided to try and read the book again (because I didn’t finish most classic books because I was too young to understand the story, and when I reread it, I actually liked it).
Now, I think it’s a wonderful book. I just love how Charles Dickens tells about Oliver. I really adore him. He’s such a poor guy, with lots of unfortunate events. But fortunately, it all ends well.
I was really stuck with the book, and I didn’t get bored at all (well, there are some pages that were boring, but I still like them all).
I enjoyed this book from the first to the last. Though I have to bring my dictionary to read this book, I still loved it.

No. 4
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
(The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1)
This book is AWESOME! I had been waiting so long for this, and I finally got it. It was wonderful, and amazing. I loved how the writer describes the scenes and places, and also the plot. It’s a very cute story (with a very cute couple ^.^)
I absolutely love Sam. What I like most about this book is that it has a wonderful plot and unique characters. Great book for having fun 😀 (My Favorite Book Covers)
Have I read the other books from the series? No.

No. 3
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
(Artemis Fowl Series #1)
Well, I think it’s a wonderful book, full of great conflict, conversations, and characters. I just love Artemis, Holly, Butler, Foaly, and Root, they’re all so interesting and I can’t help loving them.
I also can’t help admiring the wonderful author of this book, that this great series full of fun, surprises, and knowledge. How everything ended up and turned out at last, and how Artemis the genius can be so annoying yet so lovable XD
Have I read the other books from this series? No, I’ve only read three out of six.

No. 2
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
(The Hunger Games Series #1)
At first, I wasn’t really interested with this book. I know it’s quite famous, but I decided to give it a try.
Well, it was actually a great book!! And I regret not reading it before. It is full of conflict, great conversations and also great characters and great descriptions. It’s kinda dark though, and it’s not really my kind of style, but it’s still enjoyable.
I am also team Peeta through the whole series, and still am 🙂
Have I read the other books from this series? Yes, I’ve finished the trilogy.

No. 1
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
(Percy Jackson and the Olympians series #1)
I guess you’re very familiar with this book title.
Well, when you read the summary, you must feel pretty excited and I hope you’ll be interested in reading it! Why? Because I think it’s an awesome book! I loved every bit of the story, including the amazing characters – especially Percy, and also the interesting gods, plot – it will get a lot more complicated soon, and also the setting – lots of places I’d like to see, and also fun conversations and also adventures. (Book Review)
Have I read the other books from this series? Yes, I’ve read all six books.

So, the winner is the AWESOME Percy Jackson. This is just a recommendation for you, I hope you’ll be interested in reading these books. Happy reading!
