In a year that produced an embarrassment of riches, our list of the season's best fiction runs the gamut from deft literary thrillers to sprawling family sagas and genre gems. Outstanding picks include Tana French's atmospheric crime novel Faithful Place; Great House, a dazzling novel of memory and history by Nicole Krauss; and Matterhorn, Karl Marlantes "novelized" account of his experiences in Vietnam. Add to the mix dazzling works from literary powerhouses like Jonathan Franzen, David Grossman, and Gary Shteyngart, and you begin to understand why we consider 2010 a banner year!

All over the map (in the best sense), this year's nonfiction bests include tantalizing titles from science, biography, business, history, and beyond. We discovered space travelers who have miraculously adapted to an "off-Earth environment" in their junkets to places like Mars. We met the Wall Street whizzes who bet against the economy (and made in a mint in the process). And, from across the pond, we met Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the theologian who stood up to Hitler. We also got the dish on the top chefs with Anthony Bourdain, and relived one of the greatest migrations in history. All in all, it was a trip not to be missed!

Some of the most engrossing books published this year were aimed at teen readers -- a smart, savvy, and eminently discriminating audience with far-ranging tastes. Escapist fare included superbly nuanced paranormal romance, as well as well-crafted genre fiction and dark dystopian tales like Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Important, more problematic teen issues were explored in several critically acclaimed novels, including Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall and Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly.
