My Favorite Books of 2011

Yay still fireworks! Not as exciting as the real one, but close enough. 

Almost 12 hours until 2012 here in the Philippines! I feel like I should post my favorite books of 2011 now, because my mom will probably force me into helping her prepare dishes for the New Year. (She's already doing it now.) So, without further ado, here are my favorite books of 2011.


 King of Attolia (Queen's Thief #3) by Megan Whalen Turner
These are not usually my cup of tea. I read them for the sake of one of my favorite childhood  reads (The Thief!), and when I did, all I could think was Meghan Whalen Turner is a freaking genius!

I've read a lot of dystopian books this year and most of them are major disappointments. This is one of the very  few that lived up to my expectations.

One of the two best contemporary YA's I've read since the day I was born! Unforgettable characters, beautiful flawless writing... Seriously, Cath Crowley is one of my favorite authors now.

Also one of the two best contemporary YA's I've read ever since the day I was born. 

This brought back my faith in dystopian books. It's going to be released on January 2012 so I feel very, very lucky to have given the chance to get an ARC of this.

This has got to be the most surprising book of 2011 for me. I got this as an early Christmas present from a friend back in US. I was reluctant to read this but after so much nagging from my friend, I finally read it. And when I did, it was everything (and more) I could ask for!


What do you call a book you're still obsessing over 4 months after reading it? That book that's been keeping you awake at nights, letting you wonder what will happen next? It's called your favorite book of the year! I'm not one to obsess over books for more than a couple of weeks. So I was quite surprised myself when my obsession for this book is as strong as when I finished it.

    I've got the Stillburrow Crush and Angelfall in my TBR pile thanks to you, am hoping to read Bloodlines before the next book in the series is released and will be starting Under the Never Sky in a few days :)
