Highlights (Booking Through Thursday)

From Booking Through Thursday:

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 was a good year, reading-wise. Here are my highlights, with links to my reviews.

  1. I’m wondering whether you’re planning on seeing ‘The Namesake’ movie…
    Personally, I don’t tend to like film adaptations (‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ being a notable exception, I actually liked the movie more than the book. lol).

    Happy new year!

  2. I’m so glad that The Ghost Writer made your list! 🙂 I love The Namesake, East of Eden, and Anna Karenina as well. I got the new translation of W&P for Christmas, and I plan on reading KL this year as well. Now, I have to go read your review of Twisted to see what that’s about!
