Top Ten Tuesday: Books of Summer 2010

For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, yesterday was the summer solstice, the supposed first day of summer (although as far as I'm concerned, summer has been going on since the temperatures hit 100 degrees, so perhaps Midsummer is the more appropriate term). Anyway, here are ten HOT books from the latest New York Times bestseller lists that we have in the Dick Smith Library (although perhaps in a different format):
