Another decade has come and — nearly — gone, so it's time to take a look back at the best books of the 2010s, before we move on to new and different things in 2020. Bustle reached out to 30 of the decade's debut authors for their opinions on the greatest books to land in stores over the last 10 years. Keep reading to find out what your favorite writers had to say about literature in the Twenty-Teens.

A lot has changed over the course of the last 10 years, y'all. The 2010s kicked off with the WikiLeaks scandal, and ended with the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange earlier this year. Netflix and Hulu had only just begun to stream in 2010, and now we live in a world in which premium cable networks have their own, separate streaming services. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down DOMA in 2013, paving the way for the Court to legalize marriages for similar-gender couples midway through the decade. All that's just a brief sampling of all the ways our lives have changed this decade.
