Books of 2011

Previous Lists: 201020092008

I keep a reading list on this site with links to the mini-reviews I post on Goodreads. I set a goal of 75 books this year, but I’m just now compiling the list so far in May and I am WAY behind. I’m a huge fantasy fan, but I always like a good story. I love reading suggestions, so feel free to comment or friend me on Goodreads.

END OF THE YEAR EDIT: I failed miserably to meet my goal this year. I’m going to back down and bit for next year and see how it goes. It was a year of great books, though. Some of these are favorites now. Happy 2012!
