Top Ten of 2011: The Final List
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
If you want a book that's filled to the brim with characters that have an adorable romance. This is the one for you. Lola, the book and the character, is so remarkable. This book makes you want to hug it, it's just that good.
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I'd be lying if I said this wasn't THE favorite book of 2011. Because it kind of is. I love all these other books but there is just something special about Unearthly. It has almost nothing to do with my love for a certain cowboy but just everything to do with the book. For some reason this book was just a really powerful read for me.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Blood Red Road is my new obsession, as I read it just a few days ago. I'm so in love with the characters and the writing, which is so unique. The characters also have a very special spot in my heart. Blood Red Road is an incredible book.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
When I first read this I was amazed. It's hard for me to believe that I'm still amazed by this book. Just everything about this book makes me love it. It's fast-paced and Tris was so Dauntless...!
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Across the Universe has one of the best dual perspectives I have seen in a long time. The setting was intense, the characters great and the mystery? Well, that was just a little heart-stopping.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me is totally amazing! This book makes me want to jump out and down it was SO good. The characters, the supernatural elements all were combined with the most gorgeous writing.
Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
Virtuosity is a stunning tale that shocked me. I never thought that I'd have so much love for a contemporary that dealt with issues. But this one is truly a stand out in the contemporary genre.
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Demonglass is an amazing sequel to Hex Hall. Demonglass is so filled with twists and turns that everything is a surprise. Plus the love interest(s) aren't too shabby.
The Eternal Sea by Angie Frazier
The Eternal Sea is a gem in a sea of historical fantasy. I love the writing, I love all the characters and I just love the historical setting.
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey
Haunting Violet managed to surprise me with its lovable characters and mystery. Not to mention the historical setting and the ghosts. It's a must read for mystery fans.
That's my list! What are some of your favorite books?
