Since it's over halfway through 2012 I figured I'd do a list of my favorite reads so far. But, to mix things up I decided to only list books published before this year. The list was pretty long, so I broke it into two parts. This week we have...
Favorites published in 2011!
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
Certainly not your average vampire book!
A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
This book is really unlike most other paranormals out there. It has such an interesting premise and it's not all that dark.
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Whoever would've thought that zombies and steampunk could mix together so well?
Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver
A heartbreaking and beautiful middle grade that I think everyone should read.
Lost Voices by Sarah Porter
Such a beautiful and terrible mermaid story. Certainly not the fluff one generally thinks of when it comes to mermaids.
The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
A perfect middle grade with magic, adventure, and siblings!
Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris
"Fun" and "zombie book" aren't things you usually see together, but that's a perfect description for this book!
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
Snarky, fun, and melancholy.
The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann
There's magic! And it's artsy magic. How cool is that?
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
The writing is so fun and interesting and the adventure is one you could never imagine in your wildest dreams.
Variant by Robison Wells
This is some crazy stuff! We're talking boarding school with no adults and some major secrets crazy.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
It's just so...swoon <3
