Highlights December 27, 2007
It’s an old question, but a good one . . . What were your favorite books this year?
List as many as you like … fiction, non-fiction, mystery, romance, science-fiction, business, travel, cookbooks … whatever the category. But, really, we’re all dying to know. What books were the highlight of your reading year in 2007?
It’s hard to pick favorites. My favorite book is generally whichever one I just finished reading. I don’t keep lists of books I’ve read (although I’m thinking about starting) so I don’t have that to look back on either. So, off the top of my head, and in no particular order, my favorite books of 2007 were:
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Veil of Roses by Laura Fitzgerald
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Winterdance by Gary Paulsen
Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Moloka’i by Alan Brennert
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
