BTT: Highlights (December 27, 2007)

This week's question

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?

I had fun reviewing the books I've read for the year and then listing the highlights here. I spent most of the time reading fiction beginning May 2007 but only started making a list in June. As you can see, there's lots of Nora Roberts trilogies and Anne Stuart's Ice Series listed below.

Updated @ 11.00 PM: The top five favorite books are highlighted in red. Marianne made me do it. LOL.
