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?I have several. Though i didn't start blogging books until February and i don't know what i read in January, I'd say my favorites in no particular order: The Watchmen, Rebecca, Ender's Game, The Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The Golden Compass. There were several more that were close but not quite to my top 6. I'd say i am a bit surprised. Three books that fall under young adult? A graphic novel from the 80's? A gothic romance from the 30's? The Kushiel series at least makes sense: a lush, complex fantasy world full of strong characters with several books to delve into is exactly what i enjoy. And I knew Harry Potter, unless it ended with everybody dying, was going to be a new favorite.
Most hated? Wuthering Heights and Wild Seed. at least picking the bad ones was easy! I actually didn't have too many i really didn't like, though i know there were a few i didn't finish and therefore didn't write about. Weirdly i didn't put any non-fiction on my favorites list. i did read quite a few but going back over i don't know that any were really spectacular; a lot of stuff that i wouldn't reread, which to me is a major sign of a good work. I read a lot of timely stuff, about environmentalism or politics, as well as some memoirs which really don't lend themselves to rereads.
Updated later, because now that i got linked to i wanted to have a bit more substance:
