Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic:  Top Ten Favorite Books of 2011

These are my faves of the books I read this year.  Most were published prior to 2011.

1.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons-I know I rave about this book all the time but seriously it was one of the best books I read this year.
2.) Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson-My favorite Laurie Halse Anderson book.
3.) Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay-This was a heart-breaking look at a lesser known part of the Holocaust.
4.) Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning-A great ending to a fun series!
5.) Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson-A haunting book about eating disorders.
6.) Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovitch-The book lover in my adored this one!
7.) Columbine by Dave Cullen-This book explains what really happened during the massacre at Columbine.
8.) By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan-Historical fiction plus great writing equals a fantastic read.
9.) A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness-Harkness created an awesome world of witches and vampires!
10.) Dark Lover by J.R. Ward-This book got me hooked on the Black Dagger Brotherhood!
