Hey book lovers!! Today I'm gonna start my favorite books of 2011 posts! Each day for the next week or so I will list my favorite books of 2011 in a certain topics (for example today will be vampire/werewolves/fairies) I will show TWO of my favorites for each different catagory! Then when I'm all done I'm gonna do my top 10 favorite out of all the books I read in 2011!

~Click covers to go to goodreads page~


VAMPIRES

 
Ah Vampires, they are probably the most known in the paranormal world and one of the most popular. I for one am picky when it comes to my vampires books, so I knew right away when it came to my favorite...it had to be Descended by Blood by Angeline Kace, and Captivated by Deb Apodaca! Both of these books I would recommend to anyone looking for some amazing action, romance, suspense and all around epicness! I love both of these books immensely! 


Werewolves


 
Ah werewolves, now werewolves are a little bit odd to me in books..I feel all the werewolf stories I read are either very bland and nothing special..or they are like The Dirty Blood Series, and the Nightshade Series and are totally awesome! Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand and Nightshade by Andrea Cremer are both the firsts in their series and while the first books were amazing, the second books-Cold Blood (Dirty Blood#2) and Wolfsbane (Nightshade#2) were even better! If your looking for an amazing werewolf story, I wouldn't recommend any other books then Dirty Blood and Nightshade!


Fairies

 
Fairies!!! AH! I love fairies...seriously my favorite paranormal ever! This was a hard one to pick for because I love basically any fae books I read, so to narrow it down just to TWO!? Killed me! I am happy to say though that my choices were The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (this is actually my favorite series) and Bridger by Megan Curd, both of these authors are amazing writers and these two books could not be an better then they are! I completely adore these two series (although I am still waiting for book two of Bridger) Hands down if you want an AWESOME fae book, these are the two you need to get!




Those are my favorites of 2011 when it comes to Vampires, Werewolves, and Fairies! What are yours?!



check back tomorrow to see more of my 2011 favorites!

Stellar said...

i love the wings series for faeries {illusions came out this year}, and i LOVE the beautiful creatures series which is a little bit of each!

Emily White said...

I've never heard of Bridger! Thank you for the suggestion! :)

haleyeliseread said...

Stellar- ahh I liked Wings also! Adn I will be doing a paranormal mix one too later in the week! (:

Emily-Your welcome! Elemental needs to be in my hands!!!Ever since you mentioned Fae is involved I'm a nervous wreck waiting to read it! ha (:

Great picks Haley! I can't wait to read Bridger and see what you were on about. ~ Donna

MoonStar said...

I have only read Nightshade :) But the others have now been added to my Goodreads account :)
Thanks a lot. They sound great. Definitly have to check them out one day :)

SweetMarie83 said...

Out of these 6 books, I've only read The Iron King...I'm falling behind! lol I'm dying to read Bridger (had never paid much attention to it until your review awhile back), and I just noticed it's only 99 cents on Kindle, so I'm definitely going to buy it! Faeries are my favorite, too, by the way. :-)

Love the new header!

Rebecca said...

Oh, I feel exactly the same about werewolf books! It's not often I love them, but Nightshade hooked me right away and I can't wait for Bloodrose to come out now! (Only two weeks left *squeal*) I'll have to check that other one out now, if it's up with that series! :)

caroline.taylor078 said...

I have had The Iron King in my to-read pile for months, for some reason I just havn't picked it to read yet! As for vampires, I LOVE vampire books and I havn't read either of the 2 you picked but I will check them out!

D. Apodaca said...

Wahooo! Thanks! Now that I have a kindle, I'm going to read Descended by Blood! :)
