Best Books of 2011

I reviewed 46 books in 2011 (a number I hope to at least triple in 2012!), and of those 46 books I gave 5 Owls to 20! Wow! Almost half! I'd say that makes 2011 a fantastic reading year! Of those 20 books, these are my Ten Best of 2011, in order...or as much order as I could reasonably give considering I love them all!! Choosing is so hard...

1. Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson

2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

5. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

6. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

7. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

8. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

9. Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton

10. Hushed by Kelley York

Did any of these make your Best of 2011? What books would you have on your list?


  1. I loved Shatter Me... there were so many on this list that I didn't get around to reading like Anna Dressed in Blood. I really want to read that.

  2. @Cheree Me too, wasn't it all kinds of stunning? :-D I know what you mean - I saw plenty of other lists full of books I didn't get time to read either. Fingers crossed for this year! Anna Dressed in Blood was amazing, I hope you can read it soon - and that you enjoy it as much as I did!

    Thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year! :-D

  3. A MONSTER CALLS made my top list of 2011, too. What an amazing book.

    And thanks so much for including HUSHED! That made my day. :)

  4. @Kelley York It truly heart still aches thinking about it! Just beautiful.

    You're so welcome! I had to include it, as it also made such an impact. So thank you, too! :-D
