Today's topic for the Armchair BEA is "Best of 2011," which means I get to share with you some of my favorite books of the year (so far). So here are the books that have been at the top of my list this year. I originally gave some of these a rating of 4/5 instead of 5/5, but after reflecting on it over time, I think these all place high on my list this year. You can click on the titles to read my reviews.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (biography)
Moonwalking with Einstein by Josh Foer (memoir)
In the Lap of the Gods by Li Miao Lovett (contemporary/China)
