Best Books I Read in 2011

The quality of the books I read in 2011 was well above average.

Here at Booklover Book Reviews I give each book I review two ratings –  one for ‘The Story’ and another for the ‘The Writing’.

This year 9 books received the honour of being rated 5/5 in both respects.

The best books I read in 2011 were, in the order I read them:
