Reading Appreciation 2011   2 comments

I can’t remember all the books I read this past year. This says more about
my memory than necessarily reflecting poorly on the ones I can’t recall.
The standouts, however, are another story. They feature characters with
depth, situations I had never considered, and writing that practically
dances off the page in its lyricism and rhythm. In no particular order,
here are my favorite reads of 2011. Enjoy!

Room by Emma Donoghue
Cutting for Stone* by Abraham Verghese
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall
The Snowman* by Jo Nesbo
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef* by Gabrielle Hamilton
The Hunger Games (Catching Fire and Mockingjay) by Suzanne Collins

* The Blue Page Special reviews.
