books of 2011: biographies to beach trash

Every year I write up a list of the books I have read – from biographies to beach trash. This year I decided to break it up so that you can at least know which books I recommend. I have provided links to the recommended books on Amazon (don’t get me wrong – I love beach trash at times, but it is so much harder to find good books than beach trash). Let me now if you have any questions and what your favorite books are as it is always good to have reading suggestions. Happy reading in 2012!

  1. Im on the waiting list for Cutting for Stone! I’ll have to check out the others too. I just finished the latest Nicholas Sparks book, which I’m sure you have no interest in haha!

  2. Great list, Pam! I always love going through your lists and adding things to my “Must Read List.” I have another recommendation. It’s better than beach reads, but it is a very easy one called “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” It’s about a group of people on the island of Guernsey (British, but right by France) and their occupation by the Germans in WW II. Sounds depressing, but it isn’t. I think you’ll love it 😉
