Best of 2011 Giveaway Hop!!

This hop is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer!
Anne and I will both be listing some of our favorite books from the past year! I don't know about Anne, but this has been one of the best years for me, reading wise! 

Sam's books:
Wildefire by Karsten Knight
This book was amazing. I loved the humor that Karsten Knight added, that just made the book all the more worth it. Plus the aspect of a mythology story that wasn't around yet was highly appealing!








Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
This book was... WOW! It left me speechless and waiting for more. Plus the last line was just like... Thanks Richelle, I now have to wait for another year for your next book!! Mean!!! 
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Wow. This book was just the kind of action packed book anyone could want! I know it wasn't released in 2011, but I read it after all the Mockingjay stuff came out! 
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Sigh.. I miss this book! I read it in one day and was just left speechless by it. It was simply the best book I have read all year! I saw Veronica Roth at our local indie book store BookPeople, and her description's of the book were what drew me to the book in the first place!
Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs
I know I'm getting a little repetitive! But this is the last book I swear! I adored this book! I heard about this book from a signing of Tracy Deeb's that I went to with Anne! I fell in love with mermaids from a very young age, just like most other girls!
Tempest Rising has a kick butt heroine that any girl would love to be! Plus, she has a killer tattoo that she got without the pain! :)
My review here!






Anne's Books:
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Must I say it again, Lauren Oliver is awesome. She captures so much in here writing, and the dystopian setting is amazing. I can't wait for the sequel to finally be released, the cover is fantastic! Read my review here!







City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
I don't know why Sam didn't put this on her list (probably because she knew it was going to be on mine) but it was an amazing way to continue on a series that so many love. Yes, we get to see more of Jace's hotness, and there is an actual plot other than that (but, admit it, it's what you focus on the first go around). Lucky for us, City of Lost Souls comes out in just a few months...





Jane by April Linder
So, Pride and Prejudice gets all the remakes, right? Well, Jane Eyre finally got one, and I do have to say it is almost up to par with the original. While no one can beat Bronte's original words, this contemporary version will still bring out the best. And Rochester is still crazy.






What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
Sarah strikes again with this breathtaking novel about accepting who you truly are. I just love this book to pieces, as I do all of her books. It's a great read with characters that take the cake for the most personality.  Read my review here!

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Sam and I both immensely enjoyed this book. Cassandra Clare is awesome, as you must know, and this sequel to Clockwork Angel trumps all, hands down. We're both Team Will all the way, and next year cannot come sooner with that ending she gave us.
