What were your favorite books of 2011?
I always get palpitations when a question asks for “a favorite”, maybe because I’m a parent and I would never be able to answer the question “who is my favorite child”. And since moving into this neighborhood of book blogging and reviewing, I have a total new outlook about books. I used to purchase them, read for enjoyment and either they would go on my shelf or be passed on. Now I know the hard work, the heart and soul the author puts into writing a particular book for my pleasure of reading. That book IS “their child”
This year I had the opportunity to read many outstanding books that I would recommend, many more than I am going to list, but I narrowed it down to these 10 that really stood out:
Voices of the Dead by Peter Leonard
