I have been looking forward to doing this post for WEEKS! Yes, I know it is a lot of work to go through everything I have posted in 2011, but as of late I have been thinking “Dang. I have read some great books lately!” That leaves me wondering about all the books I have read this year that I am not even recalling right now but truly probably need a SHOUT OUT as the best of the year…. I also… may occasionally label a bad post… or an UGH. 😛
Join me now as we jump on the internet express and go back back back to…. (all pics are clickable and lead back to the posts/reviews)
Good: Yes it was a COLD Minnesota January when I finally caved and allowed myself a listen of an audio about a dog. I had no idea that choice would leave me raving the rest of the year about it! 😀
Good: If Shiver was impressive, Linger was icing on the cake. A worthy second to this trilogy and best book of January.
Good: This is where you recommended to me GREAT audio!
Good: This is the audio that made me very impressed with Anita Shreve. Best audio of February!
Good: A Tiger in The Kitchen was such an EXCELLENT read!
Morning Meanderings…. The New Classics (a list from Entertainment Weekly of what the new classics are)
Good: What started out as a review to cook by for a book (coming out this March 2012!) turned out to be a pretty delicious read as well.
Ugh: Morning Meanderings…. BUSTED by the snoring husband
Good: I heard about it… I coveted it, and then I read it. Just as good as I had hoped. BEST of April!
Good: What is your most treasured book?
Bad: I don’t care what cha all think of her…. I just don’t like her. 😛
Sadly (BAD) no book stood out for me to call best of May 2011….. (this was also probably the month I read the least)
Good and UGH: The post where I made a you tube video of me being the Crocodile Hunter 😯
Bad: And again… no book that stood out in July
Good: Danielle wins my Harry Potter VLOG contest!
Good: Awesome read!
Good: This was so interesting!
Good: Audio at its best!!!!
So in recap here are the books of the year:
and the audio:
and over all.. best of the best:
