Chocolate picks for 2010

It's the time of the year where The Lists start showing up. You know the ones I mean... the best and the worst, the most popular, etc, etc. Much of the time these lists are a Serious Business. They discuss which books were most worthy to merit our attention, or had something important to say. As I read more for enjoyment than education, I am alternately bored or intimidated by these lists. For my top picks, I decided to pick based solely on the enjoyment factor. Think of these picks like chocolate. Chocolate has virtually no nutritional value, but we love to eat it anyway. These picks may have no deep literary value, but they sure were fun to read. So here are my top two chocolate picks for 2010 in the young adult category.

Dark Life by Kat Falls

Ty lives in a community on the bottom of the ocean. He is forced to team up with a girl from the topside, when outlaws start threatening his home.

Why I loved it. The action is fast and made me feel like we were deep under the ocean. And a hint of the paranormal, made for a truly unique storyline.

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
Violet uses her ability to sense murder victims to try and track down a serial killer.

Why I loved it. The combination of a creepy ability and a love story made for a chilling thriller, and a great romance. The end result made an addicting read.

So what are your top chocolate picks for the year?
