Here is the whole list. I'll put an asterik near any book that's a reread.

1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix* by J K Rowling
2. Blame It On Paris by Laura Florand
3. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
4. Bookmarked to Die by Jo Dereske
5. Witch Way to Murder by Shirley Damsgaard

16. Grave Peril by Jim Butcher
17. The Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd
18. The Trouble With Witches by Shirley Damsgaard
19. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (I would have read the second and third book in this series as well but the publishers did this assinine trick where the first and third book are out in paperback but the second book is only available in hardcover. I assume the idea was we'd all be too anxious to wait and buy the more expensive second book. Wrong, a**holes. It only pisses me off. I do buy hardcover, but not when I feel like I'm being manipulated into doing so. Which is a shame, because I really liked the first book.)

Oh! I guess I did exceed my book-a-week reading goal this year. How 'bout that! Yah me again. (Unless someone changed the number of weeks in a year?) There was also one book I started but just couldn't get into so I abandoned it after a couple of chapters. I'm currently halfway through three books, those I'll use to start my 2008 list.

Tomorrow I'll post my top favorite reads of 2007. Anyone want to make some guesses beforehand at which books will make the list?

Lots of good books here! How did you like Cara Black? I don't usually read a lot of mysteries but she's on my list of authors I want to read. I love the Paris arrondissement theme.
