End of the Year my friends and I’d love to share which books I found exciting this year!!
So I checked Goodreads and I read 124 books – which are 6 books less than last year. BUT, I read more pages so, I guess I’m good anyway…
from this were 31 audiobooks ( I guess that could be more…) with total of 295 hours (which equal roughly 5 days of listening..)
Yes I believe it was a good year!
So let’s jump to the highlights!
Most Anticipated Book 2011
(The book I was waiting most axiously about this year – and I was in a state of pure excitement once it came out… I was at work, downloaded the audio so that I could start right away, after this I was simultaneously listening to the audio while reading the book. I read it 3 times in a row before I was ready to move on…)
Best Audio Book 2011
(I listened to some great audios this year, however those 3 were by far the best)
Shadowfever, Passion and Hounded – All of them are awesome for different reasons: Shadowfever is just incredible, with “the Voice” Phil Gigante reading the men voices and a woman reading the woman voices, never listened to an audiobook that was so alive!! Hounded – was just wicked funny!!! And Passion – I just adore Justin Eyre, she has a voice full of passion and complexity, I could listen to her forever!!!
Funniest Book 2011
I believe you either love or hate it. I had so much fun reading it, I was even reading my hubs part of the book just because I had to share it with someone – like now!
Most Romantic Book 211
Gosh how I loved this book! Seeing 2 Soulmates fall in love over and over again – I get ghoosebumps all over again *sigh*
Best Mystery and Thriller 2011
I normally need romance in a book and I’m not so much into Mystery and Thrillers, but Variant blew me away with it’s uniqueness and suspense!
Best Dystopian 2011
There were a lot of Dystopian books out this year, but those two were my absolut favorites. And since I really hate the US cover of Ashes, I took the German cover here – which is really beautiful!!
Best YA Book of the Year 2011
Best Book of the Year 2011
Yep most definitely! Shadowfever was the best book for me this year. Reading and listening to it 3-4 times in a row has to count for something…
So, yeah – that’s it for the 2011!!
It was fantastic and amazing and I’m looking forward seeing what next year brings!
Now, let’s hear your best books this year! And feel free to leave a link in the comments so that I can check out your posts!
