Books Read in 2011 #1-25

The list of books I've read this year had gotten a little too long for my sidebar, so here's books 1-25.  These links go to Amazon.com, and if you purchase them, I'll get a commission on it.

1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman (ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers program) 5 stars

2. Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, Book 6) by Richelle Mead 5 stars--so ridiculously amazing and perfect, and if you read just one YA paranormal series, it should be Vampire Academy!

3. Secret Society by Tom Dolby 3 stars

4. Matched by Ally Condie 3 stars

5. Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda 5 stars--unlike anything else on the YA market, very "girl-power," and if you don't want your daughter to read the Twilight books, let her read this.

6. Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook 3 stars

7. Virals by Kathy Reichs 3 stars

8. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon 4.5 stars

9. Department 19 by Will Hill (ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers program) 5 stars

10. Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin (ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers program) 1 star

11. Hunger (Riders of the Apocalypse) by Jackie Morse Kessler 4.5 stars

12. On the Edge (The Edge, Book 1) by Ilona Andrews 4.5 stars

13. Just Between You and Me: A Novel of Losing Fear and Finding God by Jenny B. Jones 4 stars

14. Night Myst (Indigo Court, Book 1) by Yasmine Galenorn 4 stars

15. Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love 4 stars overall

16. Blood Heat (Blood Lines, Book 4) by Maria Lima 5 stars, I love this series and it deserves a lot more attention than it has.

17. I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies) 4 stars, and I'm not listing "Pitticus Lore" as the author because he isn't, he's a character in the series.

18. The Sight by Judy Blundell 4 stars

19.The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman 2 stars--I really had to struggle to stick with this one. Also, I received it as an ARC from the LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program.

20. I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy, and Power 5 stars--If you've ever struggled with Perfectionism, READ THIS!

21. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White 5 stars, and one of the best I've read in a long time!

22. Rise of the Wolf: Book 1 (Wereworld) by Curtis Jobling 2 stars--I just couldn't get into the setting/world at all. Younger male readers may really enjoy this one though. I'm having to compare it to 5 star books like Nightshade and Linger, so it's not fair. (ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers program)

23. Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon 3.5 stars

24. Blood Sacrifice by Maria Lima 5 stars! Superb ending, though I hope to see more of Keira and Adam one day.

25. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead 3.5 stars, and a slow start to a new series set in the same world as Vampire Academy. I'm enough of a fan to be sure the storyline will pick-up in future books.
