IndieReader, the consumer guide to self-published books and the people who write them, is proud to present our best reviewed books of 2011.
And while we realize that people's responses to books are subjective, we can guarantee that what's written will be less biased than an opinion dashed off by an author's favorite Aunt Sally (or, conversely, someone who just doesn't like the book cover).
IndieReader rate titles from one to five stars, with five stars indicating "you better put down the latte, get out your credit card and order this right now." All of the books featured received five stars.
Our selection includes both eBooks (Kindle and Nook) and the good old-fashioned paper version.
We encourage you to give IR titles a spin, and think you'll find that indie books are like a certain brand of potato chip...it's hard to stop at just one.
We hope that you'll enjoy them as much as we did!
A charming tale about love and following your heart, delightfully sweetened with a touch of mystery. A dulcet read with a cup of tea.
A high tension, riveting and gritty thriller. Richardson unearths complex and sometimes frightening characters in an imperfect, creepy world where no one is safe – not even the Safety Expert himself.
A perceptive and penetrating look at the intricacies of love, respect and relationships. Foster’s characters are solid; her writing style engaging and her story moving.
Ray Flynt does an excellent job of keeping things moving along in a storyline that has more twists and turns than the Pacific Coast Highway.
First-time novelist Braun writes with verve and confidence in this stunning debut.
