Short reviews of five star books from 2011

One of my favorites, a reread. I  must be a little sick. I am glad I got to share this with book club.

I actually didn't know this was a self-help book when I got it. Hardwick is so positive and entertaining, he makes you feel like you can do anything.

This year has been a great year for comedians writing memoirs. This book makes you want to go shopping with the author, or have a beer. Her tips for men's fashion is spot on.

A nice portrait of depression.

I really like the story of this, even though my friends gave me a hard time for liking it. However the art is pretty bad.

My first Irving, definitely not my last. I was lost in this world.

I didn't think it was possible, but somehow I love Tina Fey more now. This book made me laugh out loud several times and I really loved the theme of women supporting one another.

The Pluto series is the best series of graphic novels I have ever read, but then again, I have a thing for robots. Someone is killing the great robots of the world one by one, and they must be stopped. 

My favorite book this year. This book is not funny, but it is fun. The world has devolved into a world where everyone spends all their time online. This book is part mystery, part action and a small part love story. (I actually really hope this gets made into a movie, I know they have already sold the rights.)
