Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.

This week’s question is
Top Ten Favorite Books I Read in 2011

Gail Carriger – Soulless
the beginning of a wonderful series telling the story of Alexia, a 26 year old soulless spinster living in Victorian London, dealing with vampires, werewolves and an annoying family

Ali McNamara – Breakfast at Darcy’s
Ali’s second book and as wonderful as her debut novel. A must read!

Kerstin Gier – Rubyred
maybe the best book I read this year. Amazing story, amazing characters, just an awesome book!

Kerstin Gier – Saphireblue

 Gabrielle Donnelly - The Little Women Letters
tells the story of Lulu (a middle girl in an all girl family) and her findings of her aunt Joe’s letters. A wonderful book where you can feel the huge impact Louisa May Alcott’s famous Little Women had on the author.

Jenny Colgan - Meet me at the Cupcake Café 
a wonderful romantic comedy dealing with opening a café, baking cupcakes and forming friendships.

Maggie Barbieri - Murder 101
wonderful new crime series. Alison Bergeron, professor at the St. Thomas College in New York, the body of one of her students discovered in the trunk of her car, a handsome homicide detective and an annoying ex-husband who is also a professor at St. Thomas.

Claire LaZebnik - Epic Fail 
a modern re-telling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice set in a modern US high school.

Stephanie Perkins - Anna and the French Kiss
Paris, love, friendship, …

Ben Aaronovitch – Rivers of London
still reading this one (got it for Christmas) but love love love it already!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got many books!
