A List of Books from 2011

Best Books List—2011

These are the books I really liked during the last year. They may not necessarily have been published in 2011 but hey are linked to Amazon so you can pre-read a summary and readers’ comments. As a big fan of checking books out from the library, I would recommend checking them out at your library before committing to purchase.

There are only two books of fiction that I read last year that I can recommend. The others left me kind of “Bleh… Whatever.”

Crazy Love by Francis Chan

The Sunday Philosophy Club by Alexander McCall Smith

Captivating by John and Stasi Eldridge 

Grace for the Good Girl by Emily Freeman

Approval Addiction by Joyce Meyer

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

Restoring Broken Things by Stephen Curtis Chapman

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer

Invitation to Solitude and Silence by Ruth Haley Burton

Have you read any of these books? Do you see any to consider? Share comments below please…

And…My daughter has a wonderful blog on books for Young Adult fiction, if you would like to visit. It is called Imagination in Focus. Her writing has a biting edge typical of pre-mortgage, young idealists. :)
