Another year is done! I hope that you will have a fun and safe New Year's Eve, and that next year is full of great books. But before we move on to 2012, I thought it'd be fun to go back over the past year and pick out the best books of 2011. These are, of course, only my opinions, but they were surprisingly easy to pick out because these ten books were jsut so outstanding. If you haven't read any of them, then I highly encourage you to do so!
I'm a rather new fan of Deb Caletti's, and earlier this year I was completely taken with her latest book, Stay. The heroine, Clara, is very lost at the beginning of the book but she is resilient and strong. I loved Caletti's message in this book; sometimes we mess up, sometimes we lose our way. That doesn't mean that something is wrong with you, or that you can't move beyond your issues. As always, Caletti is inspiring without being preachy.
