Favorite Books of 2011

I wish I had time to write a review about each one of these books, but since I’m trying to finish writing one of my own I’m going to keep it to a list. I read over one hundred books in 2011. These are my favorites (in random order) (okay, it isn’t exactly┬árandom order–it’s the order I read them–but is random as far as I didn’t rank them beyond, “Oo, this is one of the best books I’ve read this year!”):

  • The Limit by Kristen Landon (Early YA)
  • The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (Middle Grade)
  • The Scorch Trials by James Dashner (YA Dystopian)
  • Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin (Middle Grade)
  • Matched by Ally Condie (YA Dystopian)
  • Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt (YA Contemporary)
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (YA Paranormal)
  • Cross My Heart by Julie Wright (Adult Romance)
  • The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall (books 1, 2, and 3) (Middle Grade)
  • Slayers by CJ Hill (YA Fantasy)
  • Cotillion by Georgette Heyer (Adult Historical-Regency)
  • The List by Melanie Jacobson (Adult Romance)
