Anyway. It's just a few hours until 2012 (for me) so I figured it was time to recap 2011 with my favorite reads of this year, in no particular order. (Please note - this is books I've read in 2011, not necessarily published in 2011. No 2012 books included, but possibly some 2010.)

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This is one of those books I feel like I can reread over and over again. Etienne St. Clair is one of the most swoon-worthy characters I've ever read, and one of the reasons that's so is because he's not perfect, and we all know it. He's not always a hero, but he's there for Anna when it counts - and she's there for him, too. Plus, Anna's internal sarcasm is always an amusement to read.
Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep
Gwen is an awesome heroine. I love her. I love Vic, the talking sword, more than I probably should. But in the end, it's always Logan that kills me. That Spartan boy gets to me in a way most other male characters in YA lit just . . . don't. (Plus, there's lots of action and I love Mythos Academy. But it's still Logan that sticks out.)
So maybe you think there should be more - and there are plenty of books that I've read this year and enjoyed. But these are the ones that really stick out to me - the ones I know I'll never be able to forget.
Happy 2012 ;)
