It is always hard to narrow the favorites down to 10. There is always a temptation to cheat and list all the books. I am being ruthless and limiting to 10. Sort of. I have devised a way to include more books, just not in this post and that way could possibly benefit you, Dear Reader. How? Check out the end of the post.
But first, the books (in alphabetical order, links are to my reviews for all but first):
A Coalition of Lions by Elizabeth Wein: If you were unaware that Elizabeth Wein was writing awesome historical fiction that takes place in Ancient Ethiopia prior to her Code Name Verity fame, you should acquaint yourself with these books now. I haven't written a review yet because I want to finish the rest of the series first. But for now know this is SO GOOD. Hard to get a hold of, but worth it.
A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
Jinx by Sage BlackwoodKiki Strike by Kirsten Miller
Mirage by Jenn Reese
Stolen Magic by Stephanie Burgis
Summerkin by Sarah Prineas
