The Mid-Year Review - Best of 2011 (Thus Far)

In my typical fashion, since it's the end of June, I thought I'd compile a list of the books I've read so far this year that really impressed me. Keep in mind that there'll be quite a few more YA titles than in other categories, simply because I've read more of them in terms of volume compared to adult and children's books. Since I don't have a rating system (ratings are subjective anyway), you'll have to skim the reviews to see if these will impress you as much as they did me. These are in no particular order, and the books aren't all necessarily published in 2011 (but most are), I just happened to read them in 2011.
