The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

I loved this book. I read it into the wee hours of the morning, not wanting to put it down or have it end. I was transported and transfixed. This story and characters will stay with me for long time.

This is the best book I read in 2012. It's a brilliant novel that envelopes you. I wanted to start it again as soon as I finished it.

The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

I loved this book. The combination coming of age story and terrifying sci fi premise blended so seamlessly, it's hard to categorize this book. The story, the characters, everything about this book seemed to be handled with such care that I was in awe on every page.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

This was my favorite book of 2011. I recommend it to readers of all kinds. The setting and characters were so vividly drawn I felt I could easily step through the pages of this book. The Major is one of the best characters I've met in a long time.

Divergent (Divergent Trilogy #01) by Veronica Roth
Divergent (Divergent Trilogy #01)

Cindergirl3, September 21, 2011

As far as Young Adult Dystopian society series go, Divergent is in the middle of the pack. There are many interesting themes in this book that are poorly served by inadequate world building and shallow, uneven character development. For mindless entertainment, you won't be disappointed - although it's worth mentioning there are moments of sadistic, senseless violence that may be disturbing to younger readers. I really, really wanted to love this book - overall, I feel like it was a missed opportunity.
