Best Books of 2010: Series

As 2010 winds down, I took a moment to think about the books that I would rate as my "best of 2010". Interestingly enough, as I scrolled through my Good Reads "read" list, I noticed that I didn't just include books that I rated 5 stars. Most of the books were 4 or 5 star-rated, but some of the books made my list simply because I couldn't get them out of my head, long after I had finished them. Many of the books were also never reviewed at Read My Mind, but I would still consider them exceptional reads.

I'm starting out my list with the series' that I read from book #1 to the most currently published book during the year. They don't have to be books that were published in 2010, just books that I read in 2010. In no particular order, my Best in Series.

  2. Hi Naj,

    Thanks! I always feel great when I find an author that makes me want to read their series back-to-back. That's what the Best in Series 2010 is supposed to represent.
