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

Which books did you enjoy most this year?
