Welcome to the endless queue Awards! I have compiled a list of what I consider to be the best of 2011. This list is primarily titles that have been published in 2011, although there are a few that I have read this year that are not but are included in the “best of” list. Let me know what your best of 2011 is in a comment!
One of the most well-written and thought-out YA series.
The best real photos in a book-period.
Anyone who has read my review of this one knows how much I love this novel. It’s completely gripping and utterly fantastic.
I absolutely love the masquerade-like cover, it’s stunning.
Easy to stick with and one of the best mysteries I’ve ever read.
I’m normally not one to really want to read a fantasy novel, but this series is epic and most definitely a must read.
Outstanding illustrations with equally outstanding, yet incredibly creepy, short stories by renown authors such as: Stephen King, Lois Lowry, and Chris Van Allsburg himself.
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” (p. 31) Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami (Copyright 2000) [I cannot choose the best quote from a book, but this is one of the best!]
