My Own Personal 2007 Reading List

Like my title?

I didn't think so.

So... here's what I've plowed through this year. As often happens, my reading came in spurts. With two major series coming to an end this year, I found my nose stuck in a book a little more often than usual, and there's no telling how much caffeine I consumed in my attempts to compensate for late nights spent reading.

J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2 times)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2 times)

Terry Goodkind
Wizard's First Rule
Stone of Tears
Blood of the Fold
Temple of the Winds
Soul of the Fire
Faith of the Fallen
The Pillars of Creation
Naked Empire
Chainfire
Phantom
Confessor

Karin Evans
The Lost Daughters of China

Katrina Kittle
The Kindness of Strangers

Lori Wick
White Chocolate Moments

C. S. Lewis
The Great Divorce

Shaunti Feldhahn
For Young Women Only
For Women Only

Chip Ingram
God As He Longs for You to See Him

Madeleine L'Engle
A Wrinkle in Time

Janet Evanovich
Lean Mean Thirteen

It's quite possible I've left something out - but I figure the list represents several thousand pages of reading. Not too shabby! For 2008, the goal is variety - I'm out of new series material, so I'll have to get into something else. Dunno what just yet...

You need to read Jodi Piccoult... EXCELLENT author. She will keep you spellbound no doubt.

Also... you need to read Wicked. It gives a completely different perspective on the Wizard of Oz. Very good read.

I was no where near as prolific as you were this year, but I don't think I did too bad all considering, a new baby, and football season and all.

Jodi Piccoult
My Sisters Keeper
The Tenth Circle
Perfect Match

Chris Bohjalian
Midwives

Gregory McGuire
Wicked

J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half Blood
Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows.

Oh... You might want to look up Erin Hart as well... her stories are set in Irish Boglands... her character is a forensic anthropologist... pretty interesting reads! She only has two that I know of though... Haunted Ground and Lake of Sorrows. Both were really good.
