Hey everyone! The year is more than half over by now and I wanted to make a post about my most notable reads of 2011 - so far. I've read a fair number of books to date (approximately 25) and a few of those were Did Not Finish books. But, I did read quite a few great books and I wanted to compile them for everyone.
The list is made up with a diverse selection of genres, urban fantasy, steampunk, romance, young adult, historical fantasy, science fiction...which is kind of awesome because I didn't do that on purpose. There's something for everyone out there.
My Favorite Reads of 2011 - So Far
A great young adult paranormal with a different twist to the love triangle. It's smart and well written: my kind of young adult read.
Darkship Thieves by Sarah A. Hoyt (review)
Don't pay any attention to the cheesy cover. This book is actually very good! It's a space opera romance with good characters, good romance and fun world building! Give it a try.
This book gets my vote for most unique urban fantasy. It's set in South Africa and features characters magically bound to animals for committing crimes. The story itself is a mystery. The author really immerses you in South African culture but also provides a thrilling urban fantasy experience.
A pretty epic retelling of a Chinese legend. I really loved the setting and the magic of the story. It's hard to describe in so little words. Read the review then go read the book.
