Best Series of 2010

Thursday, December 30, 2010

Here at The Bucket List, Nora and I are taking the time to give you the world of books in a nutshell for the year 2010.  On Monday, the theme was Best Book-Turned-Movie of 2010.  Tuesday was the Best Covers of 2010.  Today's theme is the best series of 2010.  If we have missed any of your favorites in making this "bucket list," please tell us in the comments.  Anyway, check our picks out:

Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
Why I love it:
This series is one of the best series of all time.  You can read my review for Mockingjay HERE.  It is a series that transports you to a different time and you start to actually believe you are right there with the characters.  The series is filled with twists, turns, and romance that will keep anyone on their toes.

Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

Why I love it:
Who does not love the Vampire Academy series?  I think that Last Sacrifice was one of the most anticipated books of the year.  This book ends the series and I am yet to read it.  This series is not only one of the best vampire series of all time, but also has great depth to it.  Not to mention, there is also the hunky hotness of the Russian guy, Dimitri.

Maximum Ride series by James Patterson

Why I love it:
James Patterson is one of the best writers of all time.  He created a bunch of birdkids that fly and save the world.  Who wouldn't love that?  Now, I admit, some of his latest books in the series are going green.  If you've read it, you'll know what I mean.  Just because the storyline might be getting old, this series will stay with me because Patterson wrote some very strong characters that will keep me reading the rest of the series, no matter what he decides to write about next.

The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater

Why I love it:
In all truth, Nora picked this one- she picked most of them but we agreed on almost all of them.  This series, I have yet to read.  There seems to be a big fandom behind it, but I'm not so sure I should read it.  Nora says that it is good.  So, basically, I just want to know why all of you love this series?

House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Why I love it:
This unique series keeps me coming back for more.  It's filled with cliffhangers that I can never figure out- making me go buy each novel the day it comes out so I can find out what is happening with the characters that I love and hate at the same time.

Other series that were cool, but just didn't make the cut:
Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr
Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine
The Immortals series by Alyson Noel
Evernight series by Claudia Gray
Touch series by Laurie Faria Stolarz
