Top 10 Books of 2011

Hey guys. I've had lots of trouble with this post. It's SO difficult to choose because I've read so much AWESOME this year and I don't know if I'll be able to pick just 10... I might have to have some honourable mentions down the bottom... Oh well, anyway, here goes! In no particular order my Top Ten of 2011!

Divergent (Divergent, #1)1. Divergent by Veronica Roth - Definitely my favourite dystopian ever. I think I've decided that it's even better than The Hunger Games... Maybe xD [My review]

2. The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler - SO SO SO GOOD! Read it. Now. [My review]

3. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - Creepy and it freaked me out so much but it's awesome freaking out over a book :D [My review]

4. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - Greek mythology and starcrossed lovers... *sigh* [My review]

5. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting - JAY. [My review]

6. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - Honestly I think it's the best historical fiction book EVER. Blew my mind - incredible. [My review]


Supernaturally (Paranormalcy, #2)
7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - So adorable. [My review]

8. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - So adorable. Maybe even more adorable than Anna. *melts* [My review]

9. Supernaturally by Kiersten White - These books are amazing. Mostly because of Evie, but everything else is awesome too :D [My review]

10. Dearly Departed by Lia Habel - Enjoyed it way more than I expected to! So AWESOME :D Can't wait for the next one! [My review]

HONOURABLE MENTIONS - Very nearly made the list! Because I couldn't decide on only 10. 

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles [My review]
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger [My review]
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab [My review]
Wither by Lauren Destefano [My review]
Delirium by Lauren Oliver [My review]

So there we have my top 15 favourite reads of 2011. If you haven't read any of these, YOU SO SHOULD. I buy you a copy myself but I've already spent all my money from Christmas on books for me... Sorry ;P Now go and read them! :D
