The Best Books of 2011

I had the most difficult time whittling down the list of my favorite books this year.  My short list consists of twelve excellent books out of the sixty or so books I read.  Usually I can pick three easily, but this year I have four on the list.

Please click on the links below each book to read my Literary Friday posts.  I have also included videos about each book, too.






These also made my short list:

The Distant Hours
The Matchmaker of Kenmare
City of Fallen Angels
In the Garden of Beasts
The Language of Flowers
I Am Half Sick of Shadows
The Sisters Brother

What are your favorite books of 2011?

Until next time...

Happy reading!

  1. I think the only one I've read here was A Discovery of Witches. However, with the long winter ahead, I'll have plenty more to choose from!

  2. How great that you are such a ferocious reader I wrote down Clock work prince. Thank you for weeding through, so we just get the good reads!

    Happy New Year


  3. My mother in law is reading Night Circus now. I'm so excited to read that one.

  4. These look good! I'll have to put them on my "to get" list.


I read and appreciate all of your comments :D
