What's Buzzworthy? The Best Books of 2007

What's Buzzworthy? The Best Books of 2007

I love reading under any circumstances, but with the writers' strike likely to roll into next year, I'm going to be needing book recommendations more than ever. So before we flip the calendar to 2008, I wanted to ask you all about your favorite books of 2007.

One of my favorites: Will Allison's What You Have Left, a book I picked up almost by accident at my local library and ended up devouring in a weekend. The novel is essentially a set of interconnected short stories focusing on an estranged father and daughter trying to find their way back to each other, with side appearances from NASCAR, the Confederate flag, and poker machines. It's a small, spare book that manages to be incredibly affecting.

Others from the year that I'd recommend: Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which made me want to make my own cheese; Ann Patchett's Run, which had some of my favorite characters of the year; and Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns, as good a follow-up as I could have imagined to The Kite Runner.

So now, what are yours? Just use BuzzSugar's cool bookmarking tool to find your favorites online, write a little blurb about why they stood out to you, and tag them with the phrase Best Books of 2007. Then, next week, I'll feature some of the books here so we can all get our reading lists ready for the coming year.

Thanks for creating this list, Buzz. I'm always looking for new books to read in the new year. Like you, I highly recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns, which I just finished. Great book, indeed.

Don´t forget Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I am currently reading it for the third time. After that I should probably put the series to a rest, as I have been reading them for 5 months! Think I am going to give Twilight a try. If you are into crimes, give Stig Larson a try (if they are translated to English that is), they are HUGE in Scandinavia, should be really good!
