The Tenth 10

This group's number one book was an easy choice. I tend to read a lot of young adult fiction, particularly the sci-fi dystopian kind, and Divergent was a great start to what looks to be an awesome series. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the books as they come out. Also of note is the Dairy Queen series, about a football and basketball-playing girl from Wisconsin. DJ is something special, and is a character girls can really look up to as a role model. One more at the top: Hot Guys and Baby Animals. Seriously, do you need another nudge to go get that one? You won't regret it. ;)
