  1. One of my fave books of 2011 is Dead Rules by Randy Russell. I also loved Hard Bitten by Chloe Neill. (I love the Chicagoland Vampires series.) I have soo many other books that I haven’t had a chance to read yet too. So, I can’t say for sure that the two I listed are my absolute faves. I’m actually getting ready to read Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I’m really excited about it. I hope I’ll enjoy it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. You ask so hard questions! Either it was Nighshade, because it pulled me into reading YA and made me find such awesome books! Or it was book 2, Wolfsbane, which was even better. Or we have The Mortal Instruments, where I’ve become completely addicted and devoured all three already and had to buy book 4 ASAP. LOL. Can I answer more than one? *puppy eyes*

  3. God, that’s hard to do. Hmm, my favorite so far, today I’ll say it’s a toss up between the Jenny Pox/Tommy Nightmare series and The Girl in the Steel Corset. I have yet to review any of them because I loved them so much, I can’t put into words how I felt about them!

  4. Hey, I have never been to your blog before! Nice! I will have to come back and explore when I have more time. Great giveaway – I read a review on Envy, looks good. I have never heard of the other book.

  5. Heather @bookstacksondeck

    I think my favorite book I’ve read this year is The Girl With the Dragon tattoo… Of what I’ve read that actually did come out in 2011 is probably The Hourglass. Thx 4 the giveaway!!! The Envy cover looks awesome! -Heather@BookStacksOnDeck gfc: bookstacksondeck

  6. Melora Brock

    I think my favorite book would be L.K. Rigel’s Apocapunk short stories, the first of which is Space Junque (Apocalypto 1). They are inventive sci-fi with some themes worth thinking about.

  7. Aneesa V

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway! One of my favourite books this year had been Divergent by Veronica Roth! Abosutely devoured that book! x

  8. Fav book of 2011 – that’s really hard! Let’s go with Dominance by Will Lavender (seriously you need to read it!) But then we have so many others.. *sigh* I have SO many favorites.. Putting Makeup on Dead People.. The Keeper of Lost Causes.. I could go on and on!! πŸ˜€ And of course The Restorer!! <3333

  9. Alicia E.

    I don’t think I’ve read anything this year that was written this year, but I loved reading Matt Ruff’s “Bad Monkeys” this summer!

  10. Martina

    My favorite book of 2011… Oh that’s hard. That will have to be Richelle Mead’s Succubus Blues. There are lots and lots more but that one was amazing

  11. Pauline Milner

    I really like ‘A Love That Multiplies’ by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. It is a story about a couple who have 19 children. It was amazing to read their story. I can highly recommend this book.

  12. Loony Linh

    I really wanna read Envy! Hope the odds are in my favour & good luck to everyone~!^^ Thank you for the chance to win & happy blogging =)

  13. Barbara

    Wow…that’s a hard question to answer! I really like Pamela Palmer’s feral warriors series. And I pretty much read them as soon as they are available…so, I’ve read Rapture Untamed and Hunger Untamed in 2011 and LOVED them both!

  14. marie evans

    Thanks for the giveaway. Thats hard as I have read so many great books this year, that weren’t released this yea such as a certain slant of light by laura whitcomb, great supernatural read that isn’t that well known

  15. Sasse (_yay_)

    My fave book of 2011? Thriller: The Hunter (UK title) by Tom Wood Romance: The Play by Play series by Jaci Burton (book two Changing the Game)

  17. Debbie W.

    Hard to choose a favorite book, but I think it’d be Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Sheila Gallagher

    Wow, that’s a tough question. I’ve read so many books this year. The Beauty’s Beast by E. D. Walker was a good one. Seducing the Beast by Jayne Fresina was also one of the best retellings of Beauty and the Beast. GFC follower–She

  19. Mary Preston

  22. My favorite book this year, by FARRR is Divergent by Veronica Roth. It’s like 500 pages, and I read it in one sitting. I could not put it down! Very rarely am I overcome by the world of a book this way: think Harry Potter, or Hunger Games, things like that. Absolutely amazing!!

  23. I’ve had a good reading year so far, so it’s hard to choose. It’d be either – The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy Emma by Jane Austen Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m not sure I have a favourite book of 2011. Maybe let me read Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead and get back to you (It came out in the US a few days ago and I’m desperately waiting for my copy from BookDepository to arrive). Of the books I’ve read this year some of my favourites are The Edge of Night by Jill Sorenson and Backstage Pass/Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning. But I also reread some Kelley Armstrong books that were really good. And I read all the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, and let me say that was AWESOME!!! Okay so I fail at anwering the question.

  32. My favorite book so far, there has been a few, Lover Unleashed by JR Ward. I love her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. truebloodfan AT

  33. That’s a toughie! I’ve read some really great books this year. I would have to say either Still Missing by Chevy Stevens or Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward. Loved them both! Thanks for the giveaway! darlenesbooknook at gmail dot com
