BooKrushed 2011 Reading Challenge Results

At the beginning of 2011, I decided to participate in the BooKrushed 2011 Reading Challenge by reading 11 books published in 2011. I know a lot of you read way more than I do, but I did finish the challenge so I thought I'd give myself a pat on the back. :)

Here are the 11 books I read:
1.  Across the Universe by Beth Revis
2.  Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting
3.  Delirium by Lauren Oliver
4.  The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
5.  The Hating Game by Talli Roland (paperback release in 2011)
6.  Possession by Elana Johnson
7.  With a Name Like Love by Tess Hilmo
8.  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
9.  Bestest.Ramadan.Ever by Medeia Sharif
10. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
11. The Death Cure by James Dashner

There were some amazing books published this past year! Have you read any of these? Or any other books published in 2011 not mentioned here? What books are you looking forward to in 2012?

I read several books by my blogger buddies and still have a dozen more waiting on my iPad.

I should have participated in this! Finally a reading challenge I could have kept up with. lol

Great job finishing. I know a lot of the authors on that list. Funny to be blogging with them. So nice, too!

Well, I critiqued Universe from the time it was an infant until right before it was searching for an agent to swaddle it. The Hating Game, Bestest.Ramadan.Ever, Possession, and With a Name Like Love, by my pal Tess. Some of your other choices too. You and I have been in the same worlds and we didn't know it!

Love your picks. And love you supported the writers in our circle. You rock! (((hugs))) Will you read my book when it comes out? Some day? *waving*

Right now I'm just excited to read the next Wimpy Kid. I bought it the day it was released but am saving it for a snow day.

As for your comment on post. I had to delete the entire post but, the hits weren't good. They were mostly spammer sites.

Cheers and Boogie Boogie.

Kelly Polark said...

I did this, too! I have to go and figure out how many debut authors read! From your list, I read Possession and Liar Society!

DEZMOND said...

I think DELIRIUM has been sold for movie adaptation but I'm not sure :)

Brian said...

Very impressive! I don't think I've read that many books ever!

Joanne said...

A great list going on, I see some familiar names on it. I like that idea, and will have to work on 12 in '12 for my own reading list!

Southpaw said...

This year my read list is rather small, but most of the books on your list are on my TBR and sitting around gathering dust waiting for me.

Nisa said...

Entwined by Heather Dixon was great. Ali Cross' Become, too. I've read several on your list, but I really liked Elana's.

Theresa Milstein said...

I read 5 of your 11, and a few more 2011 books. I really enjoyed Divergent. Hourglass and The Near Witch were good.

Lynda R Young said...

Yes! I've read the majority of those. All great books.

The Golden Eagle said...

I've read several of those books--Bestest. Ramadan. Ever. is one of my favorites of 2011. :)

Lydia Kang said...

I read a bunch of these. What a great idea. I have a lot I want to read next year too.

E.R. King said...

I still haven't read Across the Universe. It's been on my list for months, and I really need to get it done!

Jemi Fraser said...

Great list! I really need to start keeping track of what I read. I read several of those (and loved them!) and a few more 2011s as well :)

Susan R. Mills said...

I haven't quite gotten to all of those, but every single one is on my list. I'm reading Possession right now.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Across the Universe and The Liar Society are two books that I am still itching to read. So many great novels, so little time. : )

Carol Riggs said...

I've only read ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, and am just starting IMAGINARY GIRLS. There are a lot on this list that I'd like to read, however!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

I've read most of these. 2011 was a great year for books! Looking forward to 2012 :D

Marcia said...

I've read and enjoyed several of those. But my absolute favorite of 2011? OKAY FOR NOW by Gary Schmidt.

Elizabeth said...

Nice job!!

I read Possession my Elana Johnson, and it was pretty good. :)

This year I'm participating in the debut author challenge, but I'm not sure where to find a list of debut authors. We'll see what happens.

Oh, and you deserve that pat on the back. It's hard to find a lot of time to read! *pat pat*

MTeacress said...

oops...BY Elana Johnson, not MY Elana Johnson. HaHa!

Madeleine said...

What a great list, some I have read and others are on my TBR Pile.

I have Build a Man on my Kindle for PC.

Dawn Simon said...

Good for you, Susan! I think it's really cool you hit eleven books published in 2011. AUDITION by Stasia Ward Kehoe is great. It came out in October. Not only is it gorgeously written, but it's the first book I've ever been acknowledged in! :) I feel so honored.

Medeia Sharif said...

I read many 2011 books, although I have many unread ones in my pile.

I read your 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10. And thank you for including my book. :)

Romance Reader said...

Hi Susan!

Great list. I have read some books but not that many! Looking forward to catching up in the holidays.

Nas Dean said...

I've been reading so many books...that I won't be able to make a list! But you have a great line-up!

Talli Roland said...

Oh yay! How lovely to see my novel on your list. Thanks, Susan! :)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I read 4, 6, 7, & 9. Number 3 and 5 are in my TBR pile. :)

Vicki Rocho said...

I have read several of these...though I wish I'd gotten to more. Maybe 2012 will be more productive?

Jackee said...

And so many debuts! You have every right to give yourseld a pat on the back. WTG!
