A Year’s Worth of Books: What I Read in 2011
Reflecting back on the past year, I see that 2011 was full of books in my house, as you can probably see. Weekly trips to the library, lots of hours traveling, late nights in bed glued to a book.
In case you’d like some book recommendations, I thought I’d share with you what I read in 2011. It’s quite a lot after all. I particularly enjoyed Young Adult novels last year. I found them gripping and wildly entertaining. I like the kind of book that impossible to put down and Young Adult novels usually provided that for me.
I read lots of series. I tend to get obsessed with books and I like when the story isn’t over after just one book, so I deliberately searched for stories that offered more than one book.
Several of these series already had a head start on me with many books to offer, while others left me with much to look forward to in 2012 as the authors release their sequels.
If you would like to see my ratings of the books, check out my Goodreads profile. I have a whole shelf devoted to my 2011 books. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I enjoyed them all for different reasons.
Note: I read a few more than listed here but they either didn’t earn a mention or they weren’t part of a series.
