It's actually giveaway day today in the Armchair BEA realm, so be sure to head over to the site to find out where all those are! I should be doing one too, but didn't figure it out and life's too crazy this week to worry about it, so instead, I'll do the alternate activity which is the “Best of 2011" where we are to "share some of your favorite books so far this year, and/or the the books being promoted at BEA that you hope will end up among your favorites for the year!"
So what I've decided is to go look at my Goodreads and see what I've given five stars to so far this year. I'm learning that I'm a little more stingy with my five stars over there, than I am with my A's over here. I don't get it, but yeah, that's how it is.
Five Star Books in 2011:
I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak (a re-read)
84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff (a re-read)
Room by Emma Donoghue
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Skellig by David Almond
I Don't Want to Kill You by Dan Wells
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
Paranormalcy by Keirsten White
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Now if that doesn't show some diverse likes all across the genres, I don't know what does!
What have you given five stars too so far this year?
