Last year, I reviewed books that I had read in 2010.
I always enjoying reading what others are reading and their reviews of them on their blogs,
so here is my list. Now, this isn't exactly a list of books in 2011. I have read a lot of these in 2012 already, but they are fresh in my mind and I figure it's close enough. I have been enjoying reading on maternity leave and also enjoying my new Kindle Fire. I also love that I can get books on my Kindle from my library! It makes it easy to try out lots of new books! :)
The Art of Racing in the Rain
I liked this book. Didn't love it as much as I thought I would after reading raving reviews on it, but it was still good. I found myself thinking about what my own dog might be thinking while reading this book since the book is told from the perspective of a dog.
I read this after hearing that it was similar to The Hunger Games which I loved (more on those later).
This book was wonderful and although it had some similarities to The Hunger Games, it is different and just as good. The only bad thing- the next book doesn't come out until this spring!
I keep saying that I'm done reading her books, but I just can't resist.
This is a new series for Karen Kingsbury, but still has all the same characters in it. It was a typical Karen Kingsbury books and I will probably be reading the other books in the series just to see what happens.
This book was just okay for me. I didn't love it, but it wasn't bad either.
This is the first book that I have read written by Kristin Hannah. I really enjoyed her writing and plan on reading a few more books by her. This book started a little slow, but quickly picked up and connected the characters in ways that I didn't expect at first. An enjoyable read!
The Girl in the Blue Beret
This book had good reviews and I always love World War II stories, but I was not impressed by this book. It was slow and went off on different stories often, but most of all I hated how it ended. I kept looking for another chapter, but it was just done.
If you have read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, you need to read this one. It was a quick read and a good story involving all of the characters that I came to love in the traveling pants series.
The Hunger Games
Loved this series! I know most of you have already read these books, but if you haven't, you really should try them! I can't wait for the movie to come out this spring.
The Ape House
I had hopes that I would like this book as much as I liked Water for Elephants. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. However, it was still a good book and worth the read.
I also read a few other books that I got free on Amazon and really aren't worth a review. :)
Any recommendations for books to read this year?
