The 12 Books of Christmas -- Book #11


I started counting down my 12 favorite books of 2011 yesterday. So, today we are ready for #11. To clarify, these are book I READ in 2011; they weren't necessarily published in 2011. I have rated 18 books so far this year with a perfect 5 out of 5 hats. So my top twelve books was a bit difficult to determine. I did cheat a little, because one "book" will be a series, since all of the books in the series got 5s and I read them all this year.  Book # 11 is:

Hate List, by Jennifer Brown

Click on the title to see my full review. I described this book as "gut-wrenching." It's about a school shooting, told by one of the victims, Valerie. But Valerie was also the girlfriend of the shooter, so it gets more complicated. Here's some quotes from my review:

My emotions ran the gamut while reading this--frustration, sadness, hate, and sympathy, to name a few.

It’s a good story; one that needs to be told.  And, in this case, it’s told in a sensitive, realistic manner that evokes such deep emotion that I would recommend this to anyone.

Feel free to link up your favorite books in the comments, if you want. Tune in tomorrow for number 10!
