These are not necessarily books that came out in 2010, but rather books that I read for the first time in 2010. The books are listed in the order in which I read them. Find the full list of books I read here. Goodreads account here.

Also, Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness should be on here. I forgot about it. /shame

Book meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] xandgunn.

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph:


“Honey?” Kit stuffed his hands into his pockets, hunching his shoulders a little.

“What?”

He reached out and took her hand in the darkness. “You are the magic of possibilities.”


...That actually made sense. I’d read it.

The books, in order:

Visser by K.A. Applegate
Wizards at War by Diane Duane
The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
Melusine by Lynne Reid Banks
Shiva’s Fire by Suzanne Fisher Staples

After some serious browsing on Goodreads, I’ve come up with this list. The books are in order of projected publication date. There are a few that I haven’t included because they don’t have cover art available yet (the most obvious of these being the final installment in the Hunger Games trilogy). And no, I didn’t just pick these based on pretty cover art. Mostly. My Goodreads account is here.

These are not necessarily books that came out in 2009, but rather books that I read for the first time in 2009. There's a small chance that I might read a few more after exams that I like more, but in that case I'll make an exception and put them in the post for next year. The books are listed in the order in which I read them. Find the full list of books I read here. Goodreads account here.

First, I'd just like to say that putting up a spoiler warning for Animorphs books makes me very happy.

major Animorphs spoilers for the final book )

These are not necessarily books that came out in 2008, but rather books that I read for the first time in 2008. They're not all going to be ones that I re-read, either, but they are the ones that I enjoyed the most. They are listed in the order in which I read them.

Recommendations are definitely accepted. :)

Remember Lord of the Flies? Gone by Michael Grant is Lord of the Flies in modern-day California. Oh, with a dash of X-Men thrown in there.

Either these two elements have convinced you to never, ever read the book, or it sounds like something you’d like. If you’re in the second category, you’re welcome to read on. If you’re in the first…you can read on if you want.

Michael Grant is the husband of Katherine Applegate, author of the well-known Animorphs series, as well as the lesser-known series Everworld. As he had a hand in the creation of Animorphs, and I think of Everworld as falling in the same category, I will be referring to both series.

I'd actually heard of this community before the lj-spotlight, but I waited around until the new year to start, and now everyone's doing it! (*grin*)

Here's my list for 2007.

Beware of some spoilers.
