The Best of 2011: Top 10 Debut Series

Wow, can you believe that 2011 is over?!?! I sure can't! And what a great year it's been here at Reading Between the Wines! Full of so many great books and new friends! I've compiled a 'Best Of' list for the year and out of over 150 reads these are the ones I've most enjoyed. This is not in any way a list of all of my favorites, I've read so many amazing books this year I don't think we have the time or page capacity for that! But these are the novels that I've rated the highest (4-5 wine glasses) and who's stories still stick with me today! Besides, you can always check out my GoodReads shelf for that. Maybe you've read some of these, maybe you haven't, and if you haven't then I recommend that you pick them up soon! 
Over the New Years weekend I'll have my Top Debut AuthorsTop 10 Paranormal Romances, Top 10 Debut Series and my The Ultimate Top 10 Books Read of 2011 PLUS a Giveaway. Each novel was read & reviewed here (see my reviews) and debuted in 2011! So let's get started....
