Christmas Vacation Reading: Your Time to Catch Up On the Great Books Published in 2010

This has been a great year for some really talented authors both new and old.  I have simply been amazed at some of the debut authors who published in the YA genre this year.  This has been a year with a lot of vampires, werewolves, fairies, and angels, but we have had some other great hits as well. 

If you are looking for some good books to read over your Christmas vacation, here are a few of my favorites from the past year.  Many are available on audio, if you have a trip coming up.  Stop by the library and check one out!  Click on the covers to go to Goodreads.com for book descriptions and details.  (If you like series, a few have sequels that are out now or due out in 2011).

Incarceron (Incarceron, #1)Dirty Little SecretsThe Iron King (Iron Fey, #1)The Dead-Tossed Waves (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #2)Birthmarked (Birthmarked, #1)White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)The Tension of OppositesMatched (Matched #1)Sisters Red (Sisters Red, #1)Dark Life (Dark Life, #1)The ReplacementMockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Hunger (Horsemen of the Apocalypse, #1)Before I FallParanormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, #1)The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1)Infinite Days (Vampire Queen, #1)

Today's YA Scene Article from Publisher's Weekly and Guys Reading

I read this article from Publisher's Weekly (PW) and they talk about upcoming books from YA publishers.  There are a lot of interesting titles coming out, but one thing that I noticed while reading about these fantastic new books, is that there wasn't a lot of stuff listed for guys to read.  What do you think?  Do you think there are more books for girls than guys in YA fiction?

Check out the article here:
