Top10 of 2011


            i've decided to participate in the event called Top 10 of 2011, organized and hosted by  Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic and Lisa from A Life Bound By Books , Jaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books and Rachel from Fiktshun .

During one week, each day will have a post about our top 10 of books, or covers or characters. Each day, a special topic.

Today we start with the Top 10 of Books read in 2011- any book so not just the one published in 2011. For me it's a bit special because it will be a mix of   books in French and in English ( because sometimes i discover an author thank to the translation in a French editor house)

Here we Go:
First place goes to:
 Psi Changeling "l'esclave des sens" by Nalini singh
Editor: Milady, Publication 2011. I was so happy to discover this book. A great time really ( can't wait to read the next one)


Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison Berkley publishing, 2011. Captivating, sad the second book wasn't as good.

Third place: Chloe Neill with Vampire of Chicago tome 1, Editor Milady, 2011. I wanted to the next one quickly. ( Milday published a lot of paranormal romance, bit lit this year)

Four:Alexandra Ivy and Les Gardiens de l'éternité, tome 1 Dante- editor Milady , 2011

Five: On the Prowl by karen MacInerney- ballantine book, 2009. Discovered by chance it was really a good read.

Six: Karen chance serie Cassandra Palmer - ( tome3) Editor Milady pulished in 2011
To be honest perhaps it's higher in the list.. i had a lot of difficulties to choose which book and such so it's only number 6 it would be better in a list of  favorite serie however.

Seven: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs- Ace books, 2011. Great great book but only number seven because i much prefered the first one.

Eight: Jeaniene Frost the night huntress serie book 4- french editor Milady , 2011
I've discovered this serie late ^^;; now i'm impatient to read the next one ( in english on my TBR)

Nine: Succubus blues- Milady published in 2011. I was hesitant at first but i don't regret to have given it a try

Ten: Kate Daniels serie by Ilona Andrews tome 3 french editor Milady ( 2010) second publication 2011) lovely

Now making this list wasn't easy at all...some could be higher in the list but since i've read them  at the beginning of the year i didn't thought of them first. Also sometimes i've got a problem becaus ei love the serie but the level of books isn't regular. So i've decided to add my Top 5 of Serie discovered in 2011 or still on going in 2011. ( the one i don't want to miss^^;;)

1: Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs, i was disappointed by the last book published but i really love this serie as a whole ( and the next will be as good as the first one)
2: Night huntress serie by Jeaniene Frost
3:Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews ( exaequo with Night huntress serie in fact)
4: Cassandra Palmer by Karen Chance
5: Midnight serie by lara Adrian
6:Chicago vampire by Chloe Neill ( exaequo with Th midnight serie)

For these six serie, i've got the book, in French and in English ^^ because i really love them. I've read the last book published or at least it's on my TBR pile. ( exception for the midnight serie, but i'm planning to get the english books too)

Next is Succubus serie, Psi changeling, Jaz Parks, Dark Swan, Guardian of Eternity etc ( not necessary in order because i don't have read all the book yet, sometime just the first one ( or2) so i can't say if the serie is good or my favorite in his globality.

And a great new...Ilona Andrews is offering a novella : Magic Gifts on her blog. Download free for only 2weeks so if you love the Kate Daniels serie, hurry and enjoy it.

  1. Succubus Blues is a great pick! I LOVE that series! It made my top 10 adult books. I also love the Mercedes Thompson series and the Night Huntress series!
    My Top 10 of 2011

  2. I'm happy to see we have some books in common. As for Succubus serie, i've received the other books in French for Christmas^^;;

  3. Finally, a different list :D I hate to admit that although all are on my tbr list, just haven't gotten around to them, except for the Night Huntress, I finally read the 1st book this year & I absolutely loved it :D

  4. Wow, this is a very different list - And I'm loving it! And what great covers you have. (Most German covers suck balls)

    The Psy Changeling series was great and I have Kate Daniels on my list as well. I loved the Night Huntress books and really enjoyed both Patricia Briggs' & Karen Chance's novels this year. And Richelle Mead goes without saying, I think. Great picks!

    I wish you had Networked Blogs.. ;( If you ever decide to add it to your sidebar, message me? I'd like to follow you and I'm refusing to use GFC XD

    Happy Holidays,

  5. I'm so so happy you like my list, i was a bit afraid when seeing all the similarities between the other lists.

    as for the cover i put the first edition for the ilona andrews books, this year they did soem new covers but i don't like them as much ( i think this one has all the story in it now it will be just a girl face)

    Sorry no facebook so no Networked blog but you can follow by email if you want.

    @ Aleksandra: you will love the others books of the serie too ^^

    thanks you
