Top 10 in 2010: Librarian M's Picks Do Not Mess Around

Librarian M is the lady who selects your YA titles, so naturally, she has to have her finger on the pulse of what's new in the world of publishing. Here she gives you a look at some titles you won't want to miss.

I like most everything Neal Shusterman throws out, but this one is special.  He takes material that could easily veer into treacly schlock and makes it shine.

I like my fantasy dark and mysterious and this book doesn't disappoint.  Bonus: Creepiest prison ever.

This book breathes new life into the "dead best friend" genre.  King masterfully brings the reader into Vera's world and slowly reveals all of her pain.

A super-important, super-powerful being has been taken from her magical forest and thrust into the middle of court intrigue in her kingdom.  This is the engrossing story of why she can't remember who she is and what she has to do to save her land.

The sociopathic protagonist of this book is working really hard not to turn into a serial killer as he pursues another serial killer.  Need I say more?
