Counting down to 2020, we present week two of our 10 x 10 series—ten lists of the ten top books from the past ten years. Each week until the end of the year, we will publish lists for two genres together. Last week's lists (in case you missed it) were Kids and Young Adults. This week, it's Realistic Fiction and Memoir. Needless to say, there were myriad options and we've definitely missed many wonderful books, so please let us know about your favorites in the comments below!
This list of our favorite realistic fiction from the last decade represents a variety of cultures and time periods.
The popularity of memoir has been steadily on the rise and, along with that, the quality of the material has definitely been elevated. A tough field indeed!
These are just a few of the books from the past ten years that we've loved, but it really was nearly impossible to winnow it down! Surely you have some favorites to add. Let us know in the comments! And follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for daily book suggestions, book news, and more.
