2007 Books Read

I thought I'd take a day off from talking about writing to talk about reading. I've been doing a lot of reading lately, and I just thought I'd share some of the books I've been burying my nose in. In fact, I'm going to try to list every book I've read this year, and keep the list going.

There are probably others (the list seems too short), but halfway through the year, I've forgotten them. If I remember, they'll be added in at that time. This list does not count the unpublished books I've read as a critique partner, although they really have been worthy of being on a list like this, and they will be someday.

(If you're an author and I visit your blog, but haven't gotten to your books yet, rest assured. I'm working on it. And that includes the missing Allison Brennan novels from the two series I started in the middle. I NEED to read those.)

ETA: I read all the Allison Brennan's I missed!
