Books of 2010

Books I've read this year:

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold -
Everyone was saying it was really good and kind of hyped it up for me so i was a bit disappointed in it. It was good just not brilliant imo.

Looking for Alaska by John Green -
I don't understand why everyone on tumblr loves this so much, seriously? It's ok but nothing special.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky -
I do understand why everyone on tumblr loves this so much. Love it.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde -
Beautiful, I could re-read it forever.

The Beach by Alex Garland -
awesome awesome awesome. Both the film and the book are brilliant, though the ending in the book is sickkk, in both senses of the word. Love it.

Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley -
Weird but good.

Scott Pilgrim 1 - 6 by Bryan Lee O'Malley -
Hilarious and brilliant, better than the film because it tells you more/more happens but they're both awesome.

Ghost World by Daniel Clowes -
COOL

Geek Love by Katherine Dunn -
The weirdest most deranged book I have ever read in my life. Takes circus freaks to a whole new level. Insane.

Fight Club, Invisible Monsters & Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk
-
All of them brilliant.
