My favorite 2011 reads...

 I love to read. In fact I need to read in order to slow my brain down at night so I can sleep...

Some of my favorite reads of 2011, in no particular order...

My Maasai Life - Robin Wiszowaty
Kindred - Octavia E Butler
Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay
The Help - Kathryn Stockett
Cutting for Stone - Abraham Verghese
Before I go to Sleep - S J Watson

and the series that I am almost finished now... and can't put down, and causes me to stay up to 1am reading, is The Hunger Games Series. Totally not my usual genre of books, but I love it! If you haven't read it... I highly recommend it! I give it a 5 star, as it doesn't put me to sleep at night at all, but keeps me up turning pages... which is not a good thing for me in the am!! The movie comes out in March and is said to be the most anticipated movie of all time!

Happy Reading!!

Oh, I Ioved The Hunger Games too. I even bought the sequels outright - something I almost never do anymore - because the waitlist at the library was so long.

You have great taste in books! I will have to check out some of those. I just downloaded the Hunger Games on my kindle so will read it next :)
