BTT: Highlights of 2007

This week's question from Booking Through Thursday:

What were your favorite books this year?

Apart from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, there was one other book I read this year that might make it to my all time favorites list -- The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason. There were a few other books that I really liked, but nothing that I would call really outstanding. Here's a list of ten books I liked best this year. Last week's meme was about books that were published in 2007, so I'm assuming this one's not restricted to 2007 books. (Other than HP7, none of these books were published last year.)

  1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J. K. Rowling

  2. The Rule of Four, by Ian Caldwell, Dustin Thomason

  3. Chasing Cezanne, by Peter Mayle

  4. Icon, by Frederick Forsyth

  5. Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, by Stephen King

  6. Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton

  7. Three Act Tragedy, by Agatha Christie

  8. The Other Side of Me, by Sidney Sheldon

  9. N or M?, by Agatha Christie

  10. The Guardian, by Nicholas Sparks

So what were your favorite books this year? And did any of these books make it to your list? Please do leave a comment.

Nice list! I didn't list just 200 either, especially because I read a lot of older books and not just the stuff that came right out. I also love Michael Crichton, especially Congo & Prey. Do you like Clive Barker? My favorite books by him are The Great and Secret Show & Everville, which is the sequel. I liked them so much I bought the first editions on eBay and I read them once a year. I am about to start Stephen King's Insomnia. That is also a re-read.

@oneluvgirl: Well, I haven't read many horror novels and I have yet to read a Clive Barker book. I really should put "read more horror stories" on my list of new year resolutions. :)

I've read the first four books of the Harry Potter and love them :) I'm slowly getting through the rest of the Potter's books though..but eventually I will get there :)

Also I've read some of Nicholas Sparks books as well. I only read his books when the mood strike. Cause sometime his books can be emotionally draining. Not that I don't like that type of books. But sometime I want to change the moods :)

Great list and Happy BTT!

I've not read any of these books except for the Shawshank Redemption, which I really enjoyed.

@julia: If you liked the first four Potter books, I'm sure you'll love the remaining books as well. :-)

I know what you mean by Nicholas Sparks books being emotionally draining. I've read two of his books -- The Guardian and A Walk to Remember, and both of them (especially AWTR) can be best described by those words.

@crafty green poet: I watched The Shawshank Redemption movie first and in spite of knowing the ending in advance, thoroughly enjoyed the book when I read it a couple of days later. :-)
