Book of the Year 2011

                    It's that time of the year again  to pick the the book of the year.
This year's I have 2  book that I wanted to give Book of the year award too
First up is  A Royal Likeness  I recieved this one from the Author  for review last year
after I picked The Queen's Dollmaker for a honorable mention.Since it was  not suppose to be out til 2011 I saved it for this years award

 Christine  really finds some interesting carrers to write about  this one is based on Madame Tussade's wax figures. and is  a sequel to The Queen's Dollmaker.  A fabulous book to read  I can not wait for the one about the  Victorian undertaker I am sure that will be a wonderful book as well.  

I loved Roses  it was pure escapism  I loved it so much I donated it to library where I volunteer it has become  a hit there as well.It really should be a movie it was that good.I have a few honorable mentions  this year as well.
 First up is
Now unless you have been under a rock you  know we had a Royal wedding this year.
Anderson is one of my favorite Royal biographers and he has written a lovely book on William and his new wife Catherine. It is a lovely tribute to the couple and to William's mother and the lessons he had learn from her life. A must read for Royal fans.
 Georgie  is one of my favorite characters to read about she is always in to some kind of trouble and I love her run in  with Wallis Simpson.
Isabel Wolf is a new author for me I downloaded this book by mistake on to my Kindle it was quite a surprise I loved reading about the vintage clothing and the histories behind them. and all the sightings in London came to life in this book  I was surprised to see that there was a scene set in the Diana Memorial Park.
Gregg Olsen  is another new author to me  Starvation heights is a true story about a woman who was convicted of murder a English Heiress and countless others. Another one of those books that really need to be made in to movie.  
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and gets lots of books under their tree this year
