The 12 Books of Christmas -- Book #3

I've been counting down my 12 favorite books of 2011, and  today we are ready for #3. 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 were a bit difficult to determine. Book #3 is:

Goliath, by Scott Westerfeld

Click on the title to see my full review.This is a series that each consecutive book got better than it's predecessor. Goliath just blew me away. I'm not big on illustrations in books either, but these are just stunning and mesmerizing. Some quotes from my review:

The twists and turns of the plot are creative, ending up taking us pretty much all the way around the world, meeting famous (and infamous) people, and experiencing an adventure at ever stop. The ending is completely tied up and doesn’t disappoint.

How Westerfeld depicted the Clankers’ machines and the Darwinists’ beasts is beyond my comprehension. I don’t know where he came up with all this, but boy it is good stuff. 

This series has wide appeal.. Girls and boys, historical, adventure, or science fiction lovers would all love these books. I can't see why anyone wouldn't love these books!

Feel free to link up your favorite books in the comments, if you want. Tune in tomorrow for number 2!

  1. I couldn't get into Leviathan and I gave up on it, but I keep seeing reviews like this saying what a good series it was. Maybe I'll have to give it another try?

  2. I read and enjoyed Leviathan, but haven't read the sequel or this one yet.


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
