-----------------Happy New Year's Eve ! So, we haven't been blogging long, but 2011 was filled with some great reads. Here is a list of our favorite books we read in 201l, what are yours ?
I'd actually been watching Green on YouTube for a year before reading his books this summer. I read this one all at once on a long bus ride and really loved it. It's one of the few books that has actually made me laugh. Green brings up some really interesting and complex ideas in a fun, crazy and insightful tale. This is the kind of book that actually makes you feel something.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
This is one of the most intense books I have ever read. At first I wasn't into it, but by the end I couldn't leave my chair until I had finished it. Plus, it has some serious nightmare fuel.
This is one of the first few audiobooks I listened to and right away this one pulled me in. I think it is the right mix of historical fiction and urban fantasy. Plus, considereing how little I enjoyed The Mortal Instruments I was surprised to opening myself up to liking Infernal Devices. This is another one with some nightmare fuel.
I like this book because it got me back into reading. After finishing it I wanted to read more books and I remembered how much I liked YA novels. It was the first book I'd read for fun in 3 years.
This book changed my perception of the paranormal romance genre. It showed that there was more to paranormal romance than sparkly vampires and insta-love. Even though I'm not crazy about the second book in the series I'm glad I found the series.
Um, where do I begin with this book. It was a magical read and not what I expected when I picked up a non-YA novel.
