How is it nearly 2011?! These past 12 months just seemed to fly by! Now, with year’s end upon us, it’s time for a Best and Worst post. (Here’s last year’s entry for reference.) As usual, this hinges only on things I actually experienced. Any oversights are accidental, and this is just meant to be fun. (It’s not like me dubbing something great or terrible has any societal impact!)

The Forbidden Rose was a lovely book. Joanna is one of romance’s superstars.
Yeah, I really enjoyed it. Bourne has a beautiful authorial voice and a great grasp of language.
