Wednesday, December 28, 2011


2011 is coming to an end! Which means it's time for the End of the Year Book Survey hosted by Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner.


This is the 2nd annual survey, but my first year participating. Go over to The Perpetual Page-Turner if you'd like to participate too!
 



PART I:

1. Best Book You Read In 2011?Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
That book. I'm still an emotional wreck.

2. Most Disappointing Book/Book You Wish You Loved More Than You Did?The Girl of Fire and Thorn by Rae Carson
I was expecting a lot more from this book. I enjoyed it but not as much as I wished I did.

3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2011?If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman
I'm not that big on contemporary so I was very surprised by how much I loved both books.

4. Book(s) you recommended to people most in 2011?
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Young 
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth
