Armchair BEA 2011: Best of 2011 (Day 2)

By Bookaholic @BookReflections
Hi all!  I'm back again to share my "Best of 2011."  Since I don't usually read books as soon as they come out, my list includes books that I enjoyed in 2011 rather than a list of amazing books that came out this year.  So in no particular order, here goes.
  1. Water for Elephants by Sara Guen (Review): I absolutely loved this book.  I had been avoiding it because I didn't want to be disappointed by the hype.  No worries in this department.  I watched the movie recently and fell in love with Rosie all over again.  I enjoyed myself immensely but couldn't hold a candle to the book.
  2. Exposure by Therese Fowler (Review): I really enjoyed this well written book concerning real life issues in parenting, technology, and other "stuff."  As a law student, I could easily envision how something like this could come to pass, while recognizing that sexting is a much bigger and harder problem to solve because of the lasting effects.
  3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Review): I don't know what took me so long to read this book.  I must hang my head in shame.  I tumbled into this book with no idea how attached I would find myself to the characters.  I'm so attached, that I am afraid to continue with the rest of the trilogy.  I just can't let them go.
  4. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (Review...coming soon): I'm a sucker for good characters and I love the fire and grit of Lina.  I also love and respect the triumph of the human spirit during tough times.  I just can't get enough of a well-told, stylistically sound review.
Between Shades of GrayThe Hunger GamesExposure: A NovelWater for Elephants: A NovelWelp...that's my list.  What do you think?  Anything you agree or disagree with?  What's on yours?  A note to my new and old friends alike, I'm pretty busy working during the day time and I have to catch up on visits and comments.  Please don't think that I have forgotten you.  I will be around later on tonight to catch up on Monday and Tuesday posts.
