My favorite books of 2011.

It's this time of the year. Everything is closing up and reading statistics are a fine way to do so. And The Broke and the Bookish asks for our top ten reads of 2011 this week.

2011 has been another exceptional year readingwise. I read over 40 books this year, although I wanted to crack those darn 50 but obviuosly it was not meant to be or something. I'll try again next year.

In no particular order (links will show you my review):

The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell
Suite Francaise by Irène Némirovsky
The Likeness by Tana French
Atonement by Ian McEwan
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
Miss Timmin's School for Girls by Nayana Currimbhoy

I'll do another post with statistics about the amount of books I read during the year, adding things like if they were library books, e-books or written by male or female authors and stuff like that. So stay tuned.

Have you read some of the books mentioned above? Did you like or even love them like I did?


  1. You've read some great books this year! I hope to read Suite Francaise in 2012. I wasn't a big fan of Miss Timmin's School for Girls myself though, I thought it was a bit meandering.

  2. I love Tana French. Faithful Place is my favorite so far and I can't wait for her new one!

  3. The Hunger Games was awesome. I will have to check out the other ones cause I haven't heard of them. New Follower =]
    Here is My Top Ten

  4. I really enjoyed Attonement. Also, I've been eyeing God of Small Things for quite some time. I hope to get to it next year!

  5. The Hunger Games!! Atonement, I haven't seen any one mentioning this book as of late. I absolutely loved this book (and movie)... I haven't heard of the other books; I'll have to look into them. Great list!

    My Top Ten

  6. I read Wolf Hall for the recent readalong I hosted with Nicole and it was so amazing. It ended up on my best of list as well and I cannot wait for book 2 this coming year. The Hunger Games was also a favorite from 2010. I really need to read Maggie O'Farrell and Tana French this new year. Great selections on your list!

    Have a safe and Happy New Year!
