My Top Ten of 2007

The following qualify as my Top Ten Reads for 2007. Beyond the first listed, the others are in no particular order:

  • A Place Beyond Courage by Elizabeth Chadwick (read this's so rich in language, place, and character, a truly stellar experience)
  • Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell
  • Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (A unique story that moves along thrillingly)
  • Companions of the Night by Vivian Van Velde (raises YA lit to a new level)
  • Helen of Troy by Margaret George
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
  • Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
  • The Ride of Our Lives by Mike Leonard
  • The September Girls by Maureen Lee
  • The Sex Lives of Cannibals by J. Maarten Troost

Overall, it wasn't an outstanding reading year for me. The 10/10s were few and far between, and many of my reads fell in the 7/10 category (good but not great). I am hoping that next year I'll choose my reads more wisely and read what I want when I want without worrying over reviews or what I *should* read. As my friend Maudeen said, guilt-free reading should be our goal!
