So, the suggested topic today, if you’re not doing a giveaway (sorrykids, trying to tighten the purse-strings a bit) is the best books (so far) for 2011. I’ve read almost 50 books so far this year and most of them have been really good! It will be hard to narrow down the field, but here are my top 3.
1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss was, in one word, brilliant. I haven’t reviewed it yet, as I’ve been working on it for about 2 weeks. I know I can’t do justice describing just how much I loved this book. Hopefully I’ll get it up here someday!
The Bone series accounts for almost 1/5 of the books I’ve read this year. The series was part of my dare from Debi and once I started reading the series, I couldn’t stop. I bought the next 8 books just so I could fly right through them all and I did just that. This is such a great series, full of heart, humor and fantastic characters and gorgeous art.
Shine by Lauren Myracle. Shine is, without a doubt, the most powerful and moving book I’ve read, so far, this year. Deeply moving, extremely though provoking-it’s a must read for everyone, not just the YA crowd it is aimed at. Everyone should read this book.
