My Favorite Books of 2011

I started this last year and thought I would continue the tradition.  This is my top 10 favorite books that I've read this year.  That does not necessarily mean that they were published this past year some may have been published long ago and some may not be published until 2012 but all the books on this list were read by me in 2011.

This list is in no particular order I just put them down as I remembered them. I don't want to list an author twice so if I've read more than one book by this author this year  that I also believe should be on this list I will put a star after their name.

  1. Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert
  2. Stolen by Margaret Peterson Haddix*
  3. Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
  4. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  5. Cutting  For Stone by Abraham Verghese
  6. Another Place at the Table by Kathy Harrison
  7. The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen
  8. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
