So, apparently I’ve read lots of books published in 2010. According to my year of 2015, you wouldn’t know it though. It’s just that I didn’t read any of them last year! I swear, like Mockingjay was published in 2010. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, and Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins all published in 2010! So it’s not that I have anything against that year, but I want to make sure I give it some attention this year. So here’s my TBR of books published in 2010…
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
“Jason has a problem.
He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper, and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?
Piper has a secret.
Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare about his being in trouble. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits during the school trip, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.
Leo has a way with tools.
When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about, and some camper who;s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god. Does this have anything to do with Jason’s amnesia, or the fact that Leo keeps seeing ghosts?”
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
“In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half.
Benny doesn’t want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice.
He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.”
“MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES: Monster Mayhem, Matrimony, Ancient Curses, True Love, and Other Dire Delights Spinsterhood or Mummification!
Ancient Egypt infiltrates Regency England in this elegant, hilarious, witty, insane, and unexpectedly romantic monster parody of Jane Austen’s classic novel.
Our gentle yet indomitable heroine Fanny Price must hold steadfast not only against the seductive charms of Henry Crawford but also an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh!
Meanwhile, the indubitably handsome and kind hero Edmund attempts Exorcisms… Miss Crawford vamps out… Aunt Norris channels her inner werewolf… The Mummy-mesmerized Lady Bertram collects Egyptian artifacts…
There can be no doubt that Mansfield Park has become a battleground for the forces of Ancient Evil and Regency True Love!”
Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones
“When Andrew Hope’s magician grandfather dies, he leaves his house and field-of-care to his grandson who spent much of his childhood at the house.
Into this mix comes young Aidan Cain, who turns up from the orphanage asking for safety.
Who he is and why he’s there is unclear, but a strong connection between the two becomes apparent.”
