It was a good year of reading. I met most of my self imposed goals and successfully completed most of my challenges. I will post more about them next week. For today I wanted to list the 5 star reads of 2011. Honestly, some of these have made it into my all time favorites list. Both of Lev Grossman’s books are ones I will read again and again. The Night Circus made me want to run away and join the most colorful black and white world ever. Ready Player One made me long for money and time to find people like Ernie Cline and spend time fan-girling with them. And Godmother, well, Godmother is one of the books that has made me believe that fairy tales can still be told skillfully and with heart.
HAPPY NEW YEAR and many, many good books in your 2012!
