Books of 2011

Okay, so now that it's 2012, I am going to post a thing I did last year on my blog.
Hope you enjoy :)

How many books read in 2011
I am a bit embarresed by this but I've only read a hundred...I was just really busy this year and didn't have as much time. I usually read more than this.. :p

How many fiction and non fiction?
Most of them were fiction but I read some non fiction for school

Male/Female author ratio?
About the same.

Favorite book of 2011?
The Chaos Walking books-Oh my gosh, were they good. You have to read them. By the way, these books were science fiction.
Science fiction- The Last of the Jedi books I have read so far, Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, Episode I Journal: Queen Amidala, The Scorch Trials, Old Republic: Deceived, Coruscant Night trilogy, and A Paradise Snare
Fantasy- Angel: A Maximum Ride novel, The Warlock, The Throne of Fire, Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex, and A Great and Terrible Beauty
Historical Fiction- Les Miserables, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Private Peaceful, All Quiet on the Western Front, and The Chosen
Contemporary Life- The Patron Saint of Butterflies, Speak, Hate List, The Chosen One, and Positively,

Least favourite?
I really haven't read anything to terrible this year. Maybe some of the books I had to read for school that were kind of boring? The MenD'lee and Exodus kind of had sloppy writing.

Throne of Fire and The Lost Hero

Longest and shortest book titles?
Longest title- The mostly true adventures of Homer P. Figg and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. Shortest title- Angel

Longest and shortest books?
The longest was Les Miserables- It was 1222 pages long and took we about two months to finish. Shortest book would have to be The Metamorphosis

How many books from the library?
Most were from the libaray but I a lot I owned since they were school books(I haven't been able to read as much as I normally do. WAAAAA)

Any translated books?
Les Miserables, The Metamorphosis, Siddhartha, and The Christmas Mystery

  1. wow thats alot of reading cool i had to read the Metamorphosis for school too cool post

  2. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird! Enjoy the rest of the Last of the Jedi books! :D I may have to come back to this sometime for some book recommendations. :)

  3. Thank you both!!! I enjoyed both the books you mentioned, very good. I'm hoping to start on "Last of the Jedi: Secret Weapon" soon. :)

  4. holy cow that's a lot of books. my count would have to be about twenty. college life bums me out so finding time for me is hard. i would suggest reading the fate of the jedi series if u haven't all ready read them. so awesome. love the new ben and vestara combo. :)

  5. Thanks Aayla! :) Yeah, I've heard that once you get into college, you hardly have time to read which is bummy :(. I'll be sure to read the Fate of the Jedi series(once I reach that point in the timeline(I'm reading them in chronological order).

  6. Wow! You read a lot of awesome books XD What did you think of Angel/The Atlantis Complex/The Throne of Fire? I thought The Throne of Fire was AMAZING, but the other two were just good.

    And you need to get your hands on The Son of Neptune AT ALL COSTS XD

    PS. Do you know how to check your PMs on The Lakehouse? The Mod Squad has been trying to contact you a lot concerning something...on the purple text bar, right under the main banner, in between "Profile" and "Messages", there should be a little white square. Click on it and it'll take you to your PM inbox.

  7. Thanks! Yes I really enjoyed all three of the books you mentioned and I hope to get the Son of Neptune soon.
    No, I hadn't seen the message(since for some reason P.Ms never went through to my email) but I have checked and hopefully have fixed the problem.
