2011 - What I read this year...

No wonder I've been in a reading slump lately.  I've been looking back at what I've read this year and it's one of the most disappointing years in literature.  I think it's because it's the first full year I've been out of school.  My brain is under-worked & out of shape.  But nevertheless, here is the list of what I've read this year.  And if you're interested in the other books I've read, you can see my Goodreads account here

The final installment in a very complex, gripping, 
fascinating paranormal series.  I couldn't put it down.
4 stars

 Quite enjoyed this one.
Love a good powerful heroine.
4 stars

Came highly recommended from a friend.
It was very well written & at moments I was really feeling it.
3 stars

Go ahead, laugh. 
I'm stupid for this series.
This one was no exception
4 stars

Because sometimes, I just need more.
Not as good as the other series
3.5 stars

And yet, another one.
3.5 stars.

 Sadly, a series that started out so strong and ended so flat.
Disappointing 3 stars

This series has potential.  Can't wait to see where it goes.
4 stars.

Juvenile.  Unoriginal.
2 stars

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

(sequel to Birthmarked.) What are you still doing here?
Why aren't you reading this?!

All in all, it was a tough reading year for me.  There were so many half-started, then abandoned books for me and I really hate to do that.  Last year was a banner year for reading but this one was a bit disappointing.  Luckily it ended on a good note with that Birthmarked series.
If you blogged about the books you've read this year, I'd love to see it!  Link up in the comments if you do.

I LOVED the Fever series! It was impossible to put those books down! Now I'm going to have to check out Prized :)

I'm so glad I saw this post! I just bought Graceling and am super excited about it. I also hadn't heard much about Birthmarked, but I'm super happy you like it, I may read it in 2012 :)

Do you have Goodreads? You should totally add me if you do, and if not, get an account and then add me!!

I surprisingly haven't read a single one of these yet so thanks for the recommendations!
