Happy Gay Friday & My Favorite Reads of 2011

The year is almost done and although I’m not done reading yet, I’ll do what other bloggers do and give you my list of favorite reads of this past year. :) It probably won’t be a surprise that my list only contains male/male romances, since that seems to be my most favorite genre.
These are all books I’ve read in 2011 (and according to Goodreads I’ve read 232 books this year) so they are not necessarily books that were published in 2011. Most are but some are older.
I had a hard time picking my favorites, so I divided them in a few categories, which gave me the freedom to mention more than a few. ;)
Here they are:

Favorite short story read in 2011
Beyond Reckless by Ava March
 Special mention:
Apples and Regret and Wasted Time by Cornelia Grey

Favorite new to me author read in 2011
Lisa Worrall
I loved both novels A Nanny for Nate & Unshakeable Faith

Fabulous conclusion to a favorite series read in 2011
All or Nothing by James Buchanan
Special mention:
Bound Forever by Ava March

Favorite series completely read in 2011
Conventions series by TC Blue (#1 Conventional Wisdom, #2 Conventional Education, #3 Unconventional)

Favorite historical romance read in 2011
The Gladiator’s Master by Fae Sutherland and Marguerite Labbe

Authors I read the most books of (aka my favorite comfort read authors) in 2011
Stephani Hecht
Kim Dare
Shawn Lane

Best book I read in 2011
Double Blind by Heidi Cullinan
Special mentions:
Rules of Engagement by L.A. Witt
The Charlie Factor by Diana DeRicci

For the rest of my Favorite reads of 2011 you can check this shelf on Goodreads.

Happy Gay Friday everyone!


  1. Lots of good books on there. I'll have to try those Lisa Worrall books.

  2. You had a good m/m reading year! :D

    Like Tam, you've convinced me to try that Lisa Worrall book. :)

    Happy New Year!

  3. Great list - I need to look into some of these!

  4. Great list!! Just wanted to stop by and wish you a happy new year!! xoxo

  5. A belated Happy Gay Friday and a Happy New Year!

    Love your list!

    It probably won’t be a surprise that my list only contains male/male romances, since that seems to be my most favorite genre.

    Of the 125 books I read this year 94 were m/m so...right there with you :) I so need to get on and read Double Blind! And then I can read The Seventh Veil and Dance With Me! Sometimes I don't know why I don't read certain books - it's like I'm scared they won't live up to the previous book. (And Special Delivery so challenged me :)

    And I adored One Real Thing. It just...worked IMHO :)

  6. Tam and Chris, I hope you'll enjoy Lisa Worrall's books as much as I did. :D

    Mandi, have you tried Heidi Cullinan's books yet? I think you'll like her writing and Double Blind is a good start. :D

    Blodeuedd and FV, Happy New Year to you too! :)

    orannia, 94 out of 125 is a lot. :) You can say it's your favorite genre as well, lol. Let me know what you think of Double Blind, for me it definitely lived up to Special Delivery. :D

  7. What a lovely surprise - I didn't know you'd read Apples :)! Thank you for the mention :)!

  8. Thanks for stopping by, Cornelia! I totally loved your story and once I'm back up my feet again I'll post a review as soon as possible. :D
