Note: This time of year is always very busy for me. Last year, I hadn't really started blogging yet, so I was able to keep myself above the craziness. This year, I am. My blog is slightly inactive due to the holiday craze. Hopefully will return to the regular posting after the new year. :)

Best of 2011: Books

Note: This was kind of supposed to go up yesterday. It didn't. Oops.

This is part of a short series, Best of 2011. This is the last part. As 2011 comes to a close, it's the time to talk about the rest of the year. Being in the bookish community, this means I'll be talking about bookish things. Here goes!

This time, we're finishing up. Here's the books that came out this year that were my favorites.

10, for its interesting world and idea.

9, for its photographs and unique story.

8, for its super awesome ghosts and mystery-esque thing.

7, for its kickbutt MC and mythology.

6, for its characters, world, and prose.

5, for its unique vibe and refreshing genre.

4, for its magic realism elements and characters.

3, for its amazing idea and strong MC.

2, for its beautiful story and prose.

1, for its strong storyline, fascinating world, and brave MC.

Those are my top ten of the year. What are yours?

We just blogged our fave 10 today. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor topped the list. We enjoyed The Near Witch, Wither, and Miss Peregrine too! We'll have to check out some of these others.

Out of this list I've only read the last three so I'm definitely adding the others onto my tbr pile! That's cool that Miss Peregrine's book has pictures in it and Anna Dressed in Blood sounds awesome since it has mystery and ghosts in it! Awesome list Brielle!

I know I'm a little late to this game, but my favorites from 2011 were:

1. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (heartbreaking but perfect)
2. A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper (the only princess story I've ever loved)
3. Stop Pretending: What Happened When My Big Sister Went Crazy by Sonya Sones (really approachable for anyone who's suffered mental illness of a loved one)

I loved your quick breakdown of your favorites! I may try that with 2012, with a lesser number of books. :)
