End of Year Survey ~Maggie

1. Best Book You Read In 2011? 

Best book. . .I have to pick two (and even that isn’t enough 🙂 )  by far it has to be Divergent buy Veronica Roth and Hourglass by Myra McEntire.  Can’t wait for the sequels!!!

2. Most Disappointing Book/Book You Wish You Loved More Than You Did?

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick.  I don’t know if it’s the book itself I didn’t care for of the series itself but I give up.  I couldn’t even finish the book.
3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2011?

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson.  It took me about 5 or 6 chapters to want to continue and I’m glad I did.  It was a great book and I’m glad I pushed through the beginning which was a bit of a slow start.

4. Book you recommended to people most in 2011?

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and Divergent by Veronica Roth  🙂

Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Myra McEntire, Elizabeth Eulberg, Polly Shulman, Jandy Nelson, sorry. . .I could go on for days !!!

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2011? 

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini:
The last cobwebs cleaning from her eyes, she decided that if Lucas was gay then she was going to have to get a sex change operation.  He would be so worth it.

16. Book That You Read In 2011 That Would Be Most Likely To Reread In 2012?

17. Book That Had A Scene In It That Had You Reeling And Dying To Talk To Somebody About It? (a WTF moment, an epic revelation, a steamy kiss, etc. etc.) Be careful of spoilers!

3. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging In 2012?

I set myself a goal on goodreads to read at least 100 books.  I’d like to complete that and hopefully surpass it as well.  I’d also love to go to BEA but I’m not 100% familiar with it.  Anyone going or has gone and want to give me details? I could use a buddy if I can get out there!

    Oh, Maggie! I could not get enough of Starcrossed! Sooo glad to see someone else loved it just as much as I did. I also found myself nodding in agreement to all your answers, until I got to your newly discovered series. Whaaaaaatttt?! Harry Potter is the BEST! Great year in review; hopefully 2012 is even better for you! Love the blog; one of my faves!

      I know, I love Potter so, but I’ve got to spread the love. I can’t pick them for everything or no one would read our blog. :p Thanks and I hope your 2012 is a great reading experience as well!
