Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic and a new list to make. Be sure to stop by the host blog to see all of the other blogs participating!

This week's topic:
Top Ten Favorite Books I Read in 2011

1. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - I don't have enough words for this book. It's amazing.

2. Wolfsbane and Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer - Possibly the best YA paranormal books I've read. If you haven't read this trilogy, you definitely should.

3. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Wonderful dystopian novel. Everything about the book was brilliant!

4. Hereafter by Tara Hudson - I think I can sum up the writing and this story in one word: beautiful.

5. Vanish by Sophie Jordan - This book was just riveting, full of action and love, and certainly left me wanting more.

5. Where She Went by Gayle Forman - Another book with beautiful writing, and better than If I Stay, if that's possible.

6. Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward - It's the WARDen. Need I say more?

7. Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - I fell in love with the love in these books. Such wonderful stories!

8. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton - I loved the action in this book as well as Will, the love interest. He may be my top book boyfriend of the year.

9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young - Written unlike anything I'd ever read before, I was quickly swept up in this story. An epic dystopian that is more than it appears to be.

10. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - Quite possibly one of the most well-crafted mysteries I've ever read. Noah had me swooning and Mara kept me guessing. Loved it!

What made your Top Ten list? Please leave a comment or link to your blog!


  1. I also had Forbidden, Where She Went and Anna! Loved them all.I read Delirium in 2010 but I really enjoyed it too. And I've been wanting to read Mara Dyer for a while now so it's good I'm seeing it on a few lists already.

  2. I really liked Blood Red Road too! I thought the way the story was written was so different. Plus Saba is a character I really came to love.

    Great list :-D

  3. I'm glad Angelfire made your list - it is one of my favorite YA paranormal novels. I'm so excited for the sequel coming up in a couple of months!

  4. Have a couple of the same ones!! I almost put Lover Unleashed on mine!! So many good reads this year. Great list, Christin!!

  5. Where She Went was a satisfying read though I must admit I found a lot of it unbelievable. Oh well, what makes good fiction? The ability to help us suspend our disbelief.

    Please take a look at my new challenge to read the ALA YA Book Award winners for 2012.


  6. I keep seeing The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer everywhere! Must check it out! Your list sounds fab.

  7. I love your list! I have Forbidden on mine as well. It is incredible. And MARA!! :)

    My Top Ten Favorites

  8. I think Stephanie Perkins is such a brilliant writer! She brings to life such fun and quirky characters, and has a great way of telling a contemporary YA love story. Plus, it's not all about the love - it's also about the personal growth her characters experience :)

  9. I've been wanting to read Blood Red Road, but my library doesn't have it. It sounds great. I also just received If I Stay, and I'm looking forward to it.

  10. I really enjoyed Hereafter, it was written really well. I also can't wait to read Delirium! Very cool list.My Top Ten

  11. Absolutely loved Delirium! :) Thanks for sharing!

    I'm a new follower, and here's my Top Ten Tuesday!
