RTW: Fave reads of 2011
Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
This week’s topic:
I didn’t read many books that were published in 2011 because I was trying to catch up with a few goodies that released on previous years, but, since the question leaves that end open, I chose five books that I read in 2011, regardless of when they were published.
But only 5? That’s gonna be hard … I could choose 10 titles easily, but 5 is going to a be problem. Well, here they are (in no particular order):
Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead
I know, it’s not YA, but again, the question didn’t clarify that end, and I love Richelle Mead’s books. All of them. Besides, this was the last one of the series. Perfect.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Love the world-building and the Graces idea. I have Fire loaded into my kindle. Soon, I’ll get to it!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Oh, such a sweetheart story! I hear Lola is even better. That one is also on my kindle.
The Duff by Kody Keplinger
Such nice way of dealing with sex during teenager years. Plus, truly engaging ;)
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Wow, such a soul-shattering love story, and a great created world and creatures. Just wow!
Honorable Mentions (sorry, I couldn’t leave them out):
Touch by Jus Accardo
I’m in love with Kale. Period.
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
And I’m in love with Daemon. Period.
How about you? What were YOUR top five reads of the year?
Btw, Happy New Year everyone!
