    Best Books of 2011

    2011 has been a great reading year for me. I tend to take into account the quality of what I read and not the number of books I read.

    The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

    The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown has been around too much: there were days when I would see more than two references to this books. So, after learning about its amazing plot, I decided to give it a try as part of my free-from-college readings! 4,5/5 Basically, the book deals with three sisters whose father, a professor devoted to Shakespeare, named them after Shakespearian characters and talked to them quoting the great English author. That said, the book does not seem very attractive. But, as the plot progresses, the reader gets to know each of the three sisters who are very different from each other. They are three grown up…
