Welcome to the official start of the Top 10 of 2011 week! For more information about this event, please check out my post with all the details here.
The end of the year is upon us, and with it comes a whole slew of recap lists! As a future librarian, a lover of list-making, and an employee of a review magazine for books, I’ve been thinking about this list for quite some time now.
Without further ado, it is with great pleasure that I present you with my,
Top 10 Books I’ve Read in 2011 (in no particular order):
√ Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (my review)
A wonderful fantasy novel about a girl raised by devils who falls in love in a warring angel.
√ Divergent by Veronica Roth (my review)
A sci-fi story about a future society that’s split into five factions and the girl who refuses to be defined by these boundaries.
Another great futuristic book where chocolate and coffee are illegal and a girl, the daughter of a chocolate mobster, must deal with aftermath of her family’s issues.
√ Delirium by Lauren Oliver (my review)
In a society where love is illegal, one girl must make hard decisions when she accidentally falls in love with a mysterious boy.
√ Crossed by Allie Condie
In this exciting sequel to Matched, the adventure continues (and gets more complicated) as the characters try to find each other, and themselves.
In this eagerly awaited sequel to If I Stay, readers get a glimpse into the respective lives of the former couple. A real tear and heart jerker!
A captivating and gorgeous picture/word marriage in this story about two kids each on a journey to find something that’s missing.
√ Stay With Me by Paul Griffin
A well-told and heart-wrenching tale of two teens from a bad neighborhood whose love only lasts 102 days.
The follow-up story to Chains, this book follows one boys journey from being an escaped slave to joining the Revolutionary war on the side of the rebels.
This adult book is about two spinster sisters and explores the life decisions that lead them to where they are now. Amazingly well-written and sure to make you both laugh and cry out loud!
