2011 has come and gone.
What new good tween reads have you devoured in the past 365 days? If you can’t remember every title you read, wanted to read or tried to read, that’s okay- that’s what good book list sites are for!
TeenReads.com has compiled a list of new books released in 2011 and has asked you the reader for your top five favorite books of 2011! The titles range in age from tweens to older teens, so not all of them may be a tween title. Voting ends on January 31,2012.
My top five books are the following:
- ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis
- DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver
- THE SUMMER I LEARNED TO FLY by Dana Reinhardt
- WONDERSTRUCK by Brian Selznick
- HAUNTING VIOLET by Alyxandra Harvey
As you can see, I am partial to fantasy novels, set in worlds both dark and strange. I am a fan of any author than can let his or her imagination run lose, causing havoc and chaos by creating a new world that runs by itself when the author looks away.
Not that I don’t like other books that are terrifyingly realistic- it’s just that books filled with new fantastical worlds grip onto my own imagination and force new odd and wonderful images into my head, ones that perhaps I would never have though of otherwise. That’s what makes a good, no, great read!
What are you top favorite 5 reads from 2011? Tween, teen or something in between?
