The Best of 2011... According to me

I can't believe it's already the end of the year. As an end to the year, I thought I'd put up a list of my favourites of 2011.

Favourite Reads of 2011:

 Why: A different take on Angels. Plus, there's the guy, Tucker.

Why: This has been the year of the dystopian novel. Divergent included a unique world full of danger, secrets and control. What more could you want?
 Why: This was the first sci-fi I read and I loved the mystery and danger taking place in space.

Why: I heard a lot about Liar Society before it came out and I wasn't let down. Secret societies, lies and death. The ingredients for a perfect mystery.
Why: Dystopian meets fantasy. This is like Xmen in a crumbling future, and I love Xmen.

Top releases of 2012 I can't wait to read:
Why: I loved Unearthly and can't wait to read the sequel.

Why: Reincarnation, a countdown to something and a murder... sounds enticing, doesn't it?

Why: An underworld and tempting fate. Just sounds tempting.

Why: Who doesn't love time travel?

Why: The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor... that pitch is just awesome

What are your favourite reads of 2011? What are you looking forward to?

Sorry, none are familiar, but I don't read young adult. The Lies of Locke Lamora was one of the best books I read this year.

I don't read my YA but I know my daughter has a number of these on her shelf. I did read Divergent at her urging and Across the Universe.

This is a great list! I still need to read a lot of these, but the ones I have read were great! Thanks for sharing!

Divergent was one of my faves too. I think almost everybody has this one on their top 10 lists!

I already read Tempest and loved it! I can't wait to get my hands on The Selection. I think this one is so pretty, I'm going to have to get a copy for my shelves. I hope the story lives up to the gorgeous cover!
