Book News : End Of Your Book Survey 2011







Graphic created by THE AMAZING Ginger at G-Reads. Let's give the girl a hand...she's talented! THANK YOU G!!
I know 2011 isn't over yet but, as I said last year, this is the time I start reflecting on what I've read and start looking ahead because I NEVER get much reading done during December with the holidays and what not! I'll be filling this out within the next day or so but I'll be revising if I happen to read something absolutely earth shattering that would need to be on here!
So feel to fill this out whenever you feel like it...whether that's today or in January! Feel free to link up with Mr. Linky and share your End of Year Books Survey and visit others on the list!

I hate this question LOL , Especially when there are so many totally awesome books out there so I'm going to take a leaf out of The Perpetual PageTurner's answers and do my Top Ones - Plural.

3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2011?

I ummed and aahed about reading Divergent as it just didn't seem like me, but once I started I couldn't put it down and once I finished I wanted more and I recommended it to alot of people.

4. Book you recommended to people most in 2011?



5. Best series you discovered in 2011?
Mmmm, this is a hard one as I didn't actually discover any new series but I had stopped reading a couple of series a few years back and this year made the goal to restart them and finish them which I'm glad I did as really enjoyed them. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

16. Book That You Read In 2011 That Would Be Most Likely To Reread In 2012?
I'm not normally the type to re-read books, but If I had to choose it would probably be this book.

  2. Divergent is one of my favorites too! It was hard not to put it down for just about every single (positive) category. I loved it! And I'm dying to read Insurgent :)

    And Anna & The French Kiss is so cute! Have you read Lola & The Boy Next Door yet?

  3. I LOVE how many times you have Divergent there ;D IT'S SO GOOD! Anna and the French Kiss popped up rather a lot on my list too - I think Divergent and ANNA were possibly my two favourite books of the year... ;) Have you read Lola and the Boy Next Door? If you haven't, it's just as good!

    Have a great rest of 2011 and I hope your 2012 is filled with awesome!
