2. Choker - Elizabeth Wood

3. Midwinterblood - Marcus Sedgwick

4. Bumped - Megan McCafferty

5. The True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean - David Almond

6. Wither - Lauren DeStefano

7. Divergent - Veronica Roth

8. A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness and Siobhan Dowd

9. Unearthly - Cynthia Hand

10. Brother Sister - Sean Olin

11. Here Lies Bridget - Paige Harbison

12. There is No Dog - Meg Rosoff

Honourable Mention:

Entangled and Being Billy - both 2011 releases that would absolutely be on that list if I hadn't read them in 2010.

What were your favourite 2011 releases? Do you agree with my list or do you think anything's missing? Let me know!


  1. Fab choices Carly, I loved Divergent & Long Lankin, Midwinterblood & Unearthly are awesome too. I have quite a few of the others you mentioned on my to read pile so I'm going to have to hurry up and read them soon :o)

  2. I have read about five of these as well as your last two read in 2010. I would probably add Shadows On the Moon into my list too.

  3. Brother/Sister is on my TBR, it looks amazing! I'll have a post of my favorite books closer to New Year's Eve.

  4. Great picks! I think half of these are on my tbr/wishlist because of a review I've read on your blog :D

  5. I've read 6 of these and have a few of the others on my tbr, the ones I've read were all fantastic! :) xx

  6. SO many great books there! Did I tell you that I read Unearthly over Christmas because you'd recommended it? Loved it.


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
