JJ, WritersBlockNZ reflects on 2011

Happy New Year fellow readers!

2011 was a hectic year for me - you may have noticed that I dropped off the blogging scene for a while. This was all due to my baby girl, Kiera Marie, born 22nd July 2011. Despite having my hands full, I still managed to reach my goal of reading 100 books in 2011 (in fact, I read a few more than 100!).

Some of my favourites:

Best series read: The Hunger Games Trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

Best sequel read: Clockwork Prince, by Cassandra Clare

Best debut author: Rapture, by Phillip W. Simpson

Best sci-fi read: Across the Universe, by Beth Revis

Best fantasy read: Graceling, by Kristin Cashore.

Best contemporary read: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Best cover: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

What were some of your favourites for 2011?

Happy reading for 2012!

Hi JJ. You were definitely busy! Now the question is, what did you think of the Hunger Games trilogy? Did you think the first book was far superior to the next two, or did you like them fairly equally?

Some excellent books. I'm still hoping to read the Hunger Games, even my stepdad has read it. A number of the books listed as your favorites are ones I have on my to-read list.

You have been busy yet find time to read, which is great.

The first book of The Hunger Games was the best because it was so original and impossible to top, but I really enjoyed the entire series!
