The 5 Best Books meme is hosted by Cassandra at Indie Reader Houston.
This week we are asked to list our 5 Best Books so far in 2011. I have read some great books so far this year, so it is rough to only come up with five, but here goes — in no particular order (links are to my reviews):
The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis. This one might be hard to appreciate if you aren’t Canadian, but even though I’ve been out of the country for 12 years I still loved its humorous look at politics.
Paris Was Ours, edited by Penelope Rowlands. This is the kind of book that makes you want to visit Paris right away, whether its your first or tenth time.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe. A celebrity memoir that is actually well-written (and the audiobook is well-narrated by the author).
A Kind of Intimacy by Jenn Ashworth. This is a page-turning thriller that dresses up like a work of literary fiction and it totally works.
Something Missing by Matthew Dicks. A fun novel about a quirky thief that you can’t help but like.
Two other books that I loved so far this year, The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady and The Bee-Loud Glade, could be yours by entering The Literary Blog Hop Giveaway!
