2011 - the year of FAB YA reads

2011 has been a great year for YA. Scratch that, it's been absolutely fabulous. As I reflect over the last year, I also like to reflect over the books that kept me company as I finished Grad school, survived a stressful school year, and enjoyed my first full summer with my little man.

My original plan to was make a top 10 list, but as I went through the books that I have read and how many I enjoyed, I decided to go with a top 20 instead. Please note that the books I list will be books I read in 2011, regardless of their original publishing year. These books are not listed in any particular order.

  • Silence (B. Fitzpatrick)
  • Ditched (R. Mellom)
  • Entwined (H. Dixon)
  • Awaken (K. Kacvinsky)
  • A Monster Calls (P. Ness)
  • Shatter Me (T. Mafi)
  • The Other Countess (E. Edwards)
  • Anna and the French Kiss (S. Perkins)
  • The Mockingbirds (D. Whitney)
  • Delirium (L. Oliver)
  • Prom & Prejudice (E. Eulberg)
  • Sean Griswold's Head (L. Leavitt)
  • Divergent (V. Ross)
  • Demonglass (R. Hawkins)
  • Jane (A. Lidner)
  • Shine (L. Myracle)
  • Hourglass (M. McEntire)
  • Beauty Queens (L. Bray)
  • The Near Witch (V. Schwab)
  • Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (R. Riggs)

That's my 2011 list , and I am eagerly awaiting a lot more great YA reads in 2012.

So what do you think? Have you read any of the above? Do you have any suggestions for books I should add to my "mound" of reads?

Happy New Year all...and most importantly, Happy Reading!
