Top 2011 Reads + Happy New Year!

So, 2011... it's been quite a year.

We want to thank all you fabulous followers and readers for sticking with us despite our sporadic posting (and by our I mostly meant me, April).

April's Top 11 Reads of 2011 (Regardless of when they were published, and in no particular order):

*Disclaimer* Super official categories were used and April most definitely did not make them up at the top of her head.  And top 11 reads are subject to change since April probably forgot some.

1. Hex Hall and Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins (Favorite Series Discovered... and shush, they count as one book.)

2. Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John (Best Standalone-Contemporary)

3. The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan (Favorite Protagonist)

4. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan (Funniest)

5. Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr (Best Ending to a Series)

6. How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr (Best Contemporary)

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephenie Perkins (Cuteness- Contemporary)

8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Most Squee-ed Over)

10. Divergent by Veronica Roth (Favorite Dystopian)

11. Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (Favorite Standalone- Fantasy)
