Most Memorable Books From the Last 10 Years--Part Two

OK, guys, you've seen Part One. Here is another list. Since there are so many, I'm simply going to list them without any comments and I'll put them into three categories. Look them up; our library system has plenty. If you want to learn more about them, check out the Labels section under this post. As I said in the last post, these may not necessarily be the best but they are what has impressed the Iron Guy the most over the last 10 years. (and, yes, other reader guys have enjoyed them as well!)

Most Memorable Nonfiction

The Boys in the Boat

Stubby the War Dog

Lincoln: A Photobiography

Howard Bryant's Legends books

The Last River

Most Memorable Graphic Novels

The Bone series

The Fangbone series

The Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales series

The Lunch Lady series


Big Nate

The Alvin Ho series

The Brixton Brothers series

The Boys vs Girls series

The audiobook version of Science Fair

OK, once again, what do you think of this list? Do you agree this is a truly awesome list that should be remembered for the next 1000 years or is it the most bogus list ever assembled? And did I leave anything out? (Like the Wimpy Kid? There a good reason for that too)

Write in and let me know what you think! Hopefully, there are a few of your favorites in here. And if not, maybe you'll find something that will become a new favorite of yours!

Somehow I missed the Broxton Brothers entirely. I put all four books on my August purchase list. If they are on a list with Science Fair AND endorsed by Iron Guy, I'll read them when they arrive!

You'll enjoy them! (when has the Iron guy ever steered you wrong?) BTW, the first Brixton Bros. book is different in tone that the other three (more over-the-top action/comedy) but you'll enjoy all four.

Thanks for these two lists. I've read many of these and look forward to reading the others. I would also add the Charlie Joe Jackson series as boys seem to get right into those books.

Iron Guy Carl said...

Good suggestion, Greg. I haven't picked up a Charlie Joe Jackson book, so this summer might be a good time for it.

I like your list a lot. Boys in the Boat, especially. My boys loved anything by Mike Lupica. They were hooked on sports, so that helped.
