Another year of reading is gone. This was a good year as several of my favorite authors released new books and I discovered a couple new favorite authors as well. I decided this year that I would keep my favorite list at 10. I cheated a little last year by sneaking in two extras. It was a difficult task, but I managed to whittle it down to 10. Here they are in no particular order: Links are to my reviews: Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta The Inquisitor's Apprentice by Chris Moriarty The Coming of the Dragon by Rebecca Barnhouse The Dragon's Tooth by N.D. Wilson The Cheshire Cheese Cat by Carmen Deedy and Randall Wright Chime by Franny Billingsley Arrow by R.J. Anderson A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall A few weeks ago I wrote about my Favorite Characters of 2011 and there are some more really great books on that list that I loved this year too.
