Books I Read in 2011

A Listmania! list by Moonlit Rose
The list author says: "Simply a list to keep track of the books I read over the year, inspired by the following quote from themillions.com: "There are many ways to measure a year, but the reader is likely to measure it in books." ~ C. Max Magee

Looking forward to see how many books I will have read in the span of a year :)"
The Blood of Flowers: A Novel
1.  The Blood of Flowers: A Novel by Anita Amirrezvani
The list author says:
  "A very unique coming-of age story set hundereds of years ago in Iran. Even though there wasn't a strong love story (which I usually look for in a novel), the fascinating details about Iranian culture made it one the best books I have ever read."
$8.55   Used & New from: $1.17
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (179 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Gone with the Wind
2.  Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
The list author says:
  "A classic I finally found some time to read during the winter break. I have to say, it fails miserably as a love story but shines as a historical on the atmosphere of the American South before, during, and after the Civil War."
Used & New from: $0.70

Into the Wilderness
3.  Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati
The list author says:
  "In order to redeem my faith in romance and true love, I rebounded with this unexpectedly wondrous historical romance about a strong woman and the wilderness of post revolutionary America. This is the first of a series consisting of six books, which I probably won't read; I think the romance has attained a sufficient "happily ever after" ending."
$13.16   Used & New from: $1.44

Of Love and Other Demons (Vintage International)
4.  Of Love and Other Demons (Vintage International) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The list author says:
  "Set in a colonial port city, this short novel follows the trials of a young girl after she is bitten by a rapid dog. Can't say for certain whether I liked this novel or not -- it had a swirling and heady mixture of poetic prose, simple truths, and illusory, dreamlike scenes."
$11.54   Used & New from: $2.90
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (104 customer reviews)

The Shadow of the Wind
5.  The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The list author says:
  "Wow, this was an incredibly gripping mystery set in the 1950s in Barcelona, Spain. About a young man, a mysterious author, love, friendship, revenge, and so much more. As one of the reviewers put it, this is "one gorgeous read.""
$10.90   Used & New from: $0.01

Lord of Scoundrels
6.  Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase
The list author says:
  "Another romance :) This was a great take on the "Beauty and the Beast" tale with a strong, intelligent female lead."
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (427 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

The Hunger Games
7.  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The list author says:
  "I became so consumed with school, work, etc that I lost my reading drive...until my friend recommended this book to me! I'm off to the library now for some more books and I have already requested the second one in this series. :D"

Hesitation Kills: A Female Marine Officer's Combat Experience in Iraq
8.  Hesitation Kills: A Female Marine Officer's Combat Experience in Iraq by Jane Blair
The list author says:
  "An insightful and thoughtful description of the Iraq war from a unique perspective: that of a female Marine officer. As a female thinking about a career in the military, I found this book extremely interesting."
