Armchair BEA: Best of 2011

I love the idea of creating a "Best of" list for the books I've read so far this year. It's pretty hard to pick out my favorites.


My favorite books so far this year:

Die for MeThe Goddess Test (Harlequin Teen)Lost Voices (Lost Voices (Trilogy))Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara




Books I can't wait to read this year:

These still don't have cover images available!

Heroes of Olympus, Book 2: The Son of Neptune (Rick Riordan)
Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things #2) by Anna Godbersen

Ingenue (The Flappers) Flawless Abandon Mister Creecher

Books that felt like acid in my eyes:
I know that everyone has different tastes, but these were really painful for me to get through.


Psyche in a Dress The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group

Okay, that's it! There are so many books swimming through my head that it is really hard to think of just a few to mention.

  2. LOST VOICES is one of my favorites, too! I just "liked" TGT...expected to love it :(

    I can't WAIT for SON OF NEPTUNE! While I own ABANDON, I haven't read it yet and really want to. Not sure about reading INGENUE. Thought VIXEN was just okay.

    I just bought PSYCHE IN A DRESS for 50 cents from my library! I'm hoping to review it in the future for MM. Your comment makes me nervous, though!

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
