Best of 2011 Giveaway!

2011 had a lot of good books in it. Unfortunately I didn't read as much as I wanted to and didn't meet my goal of 175 books. It was close though. Just had a few too many distractions and I hope 2012 will be a better year for reading.

Now the year is over (as far as reading is concerned) and instead of a December Monthly Giveaway it is time for the Best of 2011 Giveaway! Here is your chance to win one of the top three books I read in 2011 and you all get to help choose which books were the best!

I have spent quite a bit of time going through all my reads from last year and picked out 10 books that, for me, stood out and I would say were the best. Of course there are loads more I would have loved to add to this list but I have limited myself to ten and it wasn't easy! I would have given some honourable mentions but that list started to get very long. So if you want to see all the books I read in 2011 then check out the Goodreads widget at the bottom of this post.

What is the Best of 2011 Giveaway?

I have picked ten of my favourite reads from 2011 (sorry no ARCs are included!) and now you guys go to the poll and vote for the book you want to win or the one you think deserves to win!

If the book has (Series) next to it then the winner can also choose another book in that series if they are missing it (Unless I can't get hold of it from bookdepository or Amazon). I have done this because some of the books I read eg. Spider's Bite and Soulless were a part of a series that had more recent release in 2011.

Remember! You may not actually win the book/series you voted for.

Here is a little info about each book on offer (in no particular order!). Just click on the book title and author to see my review -


Silver-Tongued Devil By Jaye Wells (Series)


Touch of Power By Maria V. Snyder


Working Stiff By Rachel Caine


My Life As a White Trash Zombie By Diana Rowland


The Gathering By Kelley Armstrong


The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting (Series)


Sympathy for the Devil By Justin Gustainis (Series)


How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf By Molly Harper (Series)


Forsaken By Jana Oliver (Series)


Heartless by Gail Carriger






How does the monthly giveaway work?

So the three books with the most votes will be the prizes. The winners get to pick which one they want from the three on a first come first served basis. So if your name is one of the three winners picked...be fast and email me your choice ;)
