Each year ends with dozens of Best Of lists, including books. Instead of a Best Of list, LitChat’s offering a list of favorite reads of 2010, not based on literary merit, author’s laurels, or publishing hype. There were many notable books published this year and we had to limit the list at 10. The favorites are presented in ABC order by title. For better or worse, here’s the list. What were your favorites of 2010?

|Takaro Gorge||Jacob Ritari|
|The Girl Who Fell From the Sky||Heidi W. Durrow|
|The Help||Kathryn Stockett|
