Top 10 Books I’ve Read in 2011

Sorry these are late--I’ve had an awful cold all week. So I’m going to post Days 1-3 today and then get back to the normal schedule tomorrow. For me, these don’t have to be 2011 releases, but I made them books that I’ve read for the first time in 2011. Also, these are in no particular order since there is no way I could have decided on that!
1. Gone by Michael Grant
This was such a good book and I can’t believe I haven’t started the rest of the series yet. I need to change that in 2012.
2. Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt
I’m sure you’ll see Sean again on my crush list. This was a very, very cute book!
3. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
I can’t wait to finish this series. These books leave me with about 1,000 questions. I also don't know why I never review these. Hm.
4. Lockdown: Escape from Furnace by Alexander Gordon Smith
This book was creepy. Super creepy. Awesome.
5. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Ah, I was obsessed with this book! You’ll probably see this on the cover love post as well.
6. The Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard
Two words: Guilty pleasure.
7. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
I never thought I would like a zombie book, but here you go!
8. Stirred by J.A. Konrath
Obsessed with this series and sad that this is the last one. However, I’m glad it was left open for new spin-offs!

These books are awesome. I also find it interesting that half of my list has male lead characters! Yay!

10. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Yay for dystopians! I’ve only read the first two, but I must finish these!

This was really hard. I'm going to come at you with the Top 10 Book Covers in 2011 in a little bit and then finish off the day with the Top 10 Book Boyfriends in 2011! Did any of these make your list? Let me know!


  1. I like how diverse your list is! Not read many of these but I do need to read the Gone and Maze runner series, both sound excellent! My top 10 books and book boyfriends are on my blog

    The Cait Files

  2. @Cait

    Ohh I'll definitely come to check yours out! You must read Gone and The Maze Runner series--so good!

  3. The Uglies series is definitely on my list for this year as well.

  4. I was playing World of Warcraft and guess what the players were talking about?

    Demoni Vankil as one of the coolest fantasy books for 2011 to read. Wow. ...and I was playing with my son to take a break from writing!

    I had my own private squealing session when I read this Kaitlyn. up, I was stoked. I'm SO glad you liked the book.

    ...there's a lot more to come.

    That's so awesome! Keep up the fabulous work :)

  6. I'm a huge JA Konrath fan. I haven't read Stirred yet but it's on my 2012 TBR list. It's sad to see the Jack Daniels series come to an end. I loved all the characters in the series. So memorable. I'm happy to see it on this list.

  7. @Russell I'm just glad there is potential for spin-offs from the series. I would definitely be sad to see all of the characters go!


Comment away, my friends. I love to chat with you guys. :)
