Top Ten Books of 2011

This weeks Top Ten from The Broke and the Bookish asks me to select my ten favorite reads of 2011.  I can easily pick ten ...the problem is choosing only ten! In no particular order they are:
  1. State of Wonder by Ann Patchett 
  2. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  3. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
  4. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  5. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
  6. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  7. The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
  8. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
  9. Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkein
  10. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin


    1. I have read almost all of the books on your list and they are all great reads. My favorite is Gone With the Wind.

    2. I read State of Wonder as well, and although I couldn't say it was one of my favorites, the book was still excellent. I feel as if I might have enjoyed it more if I actually read Heart of Darkness...

      PS: Feel free to flirt with my faves of 2011 here. Thanks!
