Why I Love Wednesdays... Favorite Book in 2011

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Book in 2011

Why I Love...The Girl in the Garden

Okay so the favorite books that I read in 2011 were actually Between Shades of Gray and The Hunger Games.  Since I've already gone on and on and on about them, I decided to tell you guys about my third favorite book...The Girl in the Garden.  Many of you have noticed, I tend to love books that stick with me well after I have finished it.  That's exactly what I found with The Girl in the Garden.  I found myself intrigued by the family secrets that spanned years and frustrated for the ten-year-old who is confused by it all.  This is a book where the writing is spectacular and the premise unique.  I always love reading about different cultures as well.  This is one that you should have on your bookshelf but I wouldn't start it late at night, it is oh so hard to put down.

You can find my review here.

  5. It's different. It is a story about a ten year old's experience but it is an adult book.

  6. I suck. Again. I'm remembering about it on Thursday, as usual. *sigh*
    And, this book has gone on my tbr list for 2012, like in the SO wanted category, I'll read it for sure :D

    Hmm...I really suck with picking The one I liked best out of all, this is gonna become a list by categories probably, lol. .*sigh* I suck at picking out of my favs. Right now it's a close tie between Waiting to Forget by Sheila Kelly Welch and Caregiver by Rick Reed, I think. The fact that it's hard for me to pick only one title shows I've had a good year, right? xDD

  11. I have actually heard of this book before but it didn't sound like something I would like to read.

    but I do love books that linger, so I might give it a go if it comes my way.:D
