Everybody's Doing It...
Most of my book-blogging buddies have done a recap of their 2007 reading. I wanted to do a little year-end reading wrap-up, too, but I’m too lazy to count up the books I’ve read. However, I admire all you bloggers who have done that—I love poking around your statistics, and wondering at the amazing amounts and variety of books that you all have read.
I’ve had a very satisfying reading year. I’ve read many good books recommended by fellow bloggers. I’ve also participated in reading challenges for the first time, though I’ve yet to complete any of them fully!
Here are a few of my favorite books from 2007, in no particular order. If I wrote about them, then I linked to my review:
Half of a Yellow Sun, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell
The Maytrees, by Annie Dillard
Blindness, by Jose Saramago
Of Human Bondage, by W. Somerset Maugham
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver
How did your reading go in 2007? What are you looking forward to reading in 2008?
