2011 Book Survey

1. Best Book You Read In 2011? Can I pick two? I absolutely LOVED Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and Divergent by Veronica Roth!

2. Most Disappointing Book/Book You Wish You Loved More Than You Did?Tempest by Julie Cross, the idea was so original for YA but I just could not get into it, that's a 2012 release though...

Leigh Fallon's Carrier of the Mark was not original enough for me, so after being so hyped up it totally let me down.

3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2011?In Darkness by Nick Lake (yet another 2012 release) or Impossible by Nancy Werlin

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2011? I can't remember the exact words, but they're the last words in Delirium by Lauren oliver


  1. Ooh yeah, Anna and Divergent were definitely some of my favourites of 2011! I was really looking forward to Forbidden too (and now really excited for Forgiven!). And agree the last line of Delirium was amazing. Thanks for sharing this :).

  2. Divergent was absolutely my top book of 2011 too!

  3. loooove this post! haven't read Divergent! and agreed with Perfect Chemistry :D and Shatter Me!!

  4. I might have to steal this! I loved Divergent too, definitely on of my top books of the year!

  5. Your best of 2011 picks, Anna and the French Kiss and Divergent, were also two of my very favorites. I feel like there were a lot of books I liked okay in 2011, but not a lot like those two that I LOVED. I hope 2012 offers more of that. :) Great End of Year Review.

  6. Under the Never Sky is such an interesting title! Did it live up to the title?

  7. @Lu
    -It was a great book, but didn't blow me away, some parts were too similar to other dystopian titles but other parts were fantastic. Still a great reccommendation!
