It's time again for Top of the Decade lists!
I haven't spent enough time in the genre to make a list but it would be fun to see what our more experienced readers think.
Anyone want to put in their two cents?

I haven't even been reading HF for a decade, so I'll not throw in my $.02, but I will watch this thread as I'm interested to see what the long-time HFers think! (And no doubt to add many books to my wishlist!)
For the sake of flexibility, it can be optional. The Top Ten HFs you've read during this decade (regardless of publication year) OR the Top Ten HFs you read that were published in this decade.
OK, I'll start because, ya know, I've been reading HF for many decades. (:
Perfect. Top ten (in no particular order) I've read in this decade, but not necessarily published in this decade.
Argh! I have no place for Anya Seton. What's a girl to do?
