I know...


message 10: by Valkery (new)

Valkery So what if most of them came out way before 2010. Their not that old and if you look at the bible, a load of people read that every day and think how old that is! Classics never die(unless they are really bad!)


message 11: by Nina Gayle (new)

Nina Gayle One of the criteria for this list, 2010 Best Books for Young Adults (Nominations) is that a book be published between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009. Even though the title is 2010 Best Books, the 2010 refers to when the awards are announced. The books were published in the previous year. Older books and newer books do not belong on this list. Read the criteria at the top of the page. It has nothing to do with the quality of the books.

Robbie P. The books I read were The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mocjingjay all by Suzanne Collins. I also read and really liked the Maze Runner (#1) by James Dashner. The Scorch Trials (#2) and the Death Cure (#3) by James Dashner and Divergent by Verocina Roth looks good also.
