Fave Reads of 2011- So far!

Written By: Kellie - Jun• 24•11

I love, love, love this idea. I can always use an excuse to gush about the books I’ve read. I tried not to reuse any books but it didn’t work out that well. I’ve read 44 books so far this year, but what can I say, some were just better than others. I think my big winners are Gone by Michael Grant and If I Stay by Gayle Foreman, neither of which was my number one book so far this year!
