My Top 5 YA of 2010 - Amy Parker
5) Malinda Lo – Ash
A fresh, interesting take on the classic Cinderella fairytale.
4) Melissa Marr – Wicked Lovely
A deftly-spun tale of one girl’s struggle against the allure of the faerie kingdom.
3) Michelle Zink – Prophecy of the Sisters
A unique, compelling story of the battle of wills between two sisters, set in the late 19th century.
2) Scott Westerfeld – The Midnighters Trilogy
Fantastic, dark series about the twenty-fifth hour, which is only perceptible to those born at midnight.
1) Kelley Armstrong – The Darkest Powers Trilogy
Set in the author’s established Otherworld universe, this teen trilogy stands alone, and stands out for me as the best YA of 2010.
