I didn't read nearly as much as I normally read in a year this past year, so it feels like cheating to have a top ten. Instead I'll just pick a few favorites.
The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion
Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan
It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
The 100-year-old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and other concerns) by Mindy Kaling
Books by Kaling, Jonasson and Vizzini include swearing (including the F-word). Books by Simsion, McCahan and Vizzini include some mild sexual discussion.
