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?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  34. This is my first Booking Through Thursday and had already written this post (on 12.25.07) but it should still work.


  35. i’m also a day late, but mine is here. this was fun to think about!

  36. It was hard to narrow down my list, but I did (somewhat):)

    Here’s my answer:


  37. The book that for me proves that Best of Lists should be left until the 31st December – The Accidental by Ali Smith http://foundcraftygreenart.blogspot.com/2007/12/accidental-by-ali-smith.html

  38. This year I really got into a couple of new authors, Neal Asher and Neil Gaiman (it’s the year of the Nea/ils I think, I also have a Neal Stephenson book on my “soon to read” shelf). So my favorite books for this year are Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (possibly my favorite book of all time, by anyone) and Gridlinked by Neal Asher (with just about all of the other Polity books in a tie with Gridlinked lol). Both of these are older books and both the author’s first novel, interestingly enough.

  39. Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s mine at last:
