Top 5 in 2011, so far: Librarian M's Tales of the Mostly Dark and Mysterious

Oh Librarian M, what would we do without you and your consistently dark choices? We'd have to read a lot more horror and suspense, that's what. If that's your scene too, then you will want to check out our mysterious Lady M's top picks for 2011, so far. 

I Don't Want to Kill You by Dan Wells
  The third book in the John Cleaver series. It's about a sociopathic guy who kills demons. Why wouldn't I like this book?

Chime by Franny Billingsley
The self-deprecating and sarcastic sense of humor of the heroine is reason enough alone to read this book.

Rotters by Daniel Kraus
Joey's mom dies and he has to go live with his father- who turns out to rob graves for a living. This book takes the exploration of a father-son relationship to new levels.

Everfound By Neal Shusterman
The last book of the Skinjacker trilogy. Shusterman created a wonderfully detailed, rich world with this series and I loved spending time there.

Stay by Deb Caletti (see our full review here)
An excellent portrayal of the lead-up and aftermath of an abusive relationship.
