Keris's Top 10 favourite books of 2007
10. Frenemies by Megan Crane
I loved Frenemies. Lots of the cover reviews claimed it was unputdownable and, while no book is literally unputdownable (sorry, but it's one of my bugbears) I really didn't want to leave Frenemies until I got to the end.
9. Hollywood Car Wash by Lori Culwell
I didn't want to put this book down and I wouldn't have done if I hadn't had other responsibilities. It's entertaining, shocking and completely compelling.
8. The Perfectly True Tales of a Perfect Size 12 by Robin Gold
The Perfectly True Tales of a Perfect Size 12 is a charming, old-fashioned and inspiring book. It's also the first book for a long time that I actually read while walking down the street!
7. Any Way You Want Me by Lucy Diamond
I absolutely loved this book. I read it curled up on the couch laughing, gasping, shouting (yes, I shout at books) and even crying a little. Great sex scenes too!
6. Rainy Days & Tuesdays by Claire Allan
Rainy Days & Tuesdays was one of Jill's favourite books of the year and I loved it too. An incredibly enjoyable and satisfying read.
5. The Fortune Quilt by Lani Diane Rich
I've loved all of Lani Diane Rich's books and The Fortune Quilt is no exception. A lovely, sweet, funny book that I read with a great dopey smile on my face.
4. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
The only Jodi Picoult book I read in 2007, but it was a good one - an involving and thought-provoking novel that I didn't want to put down.
3. Monkey Star by Brenda Scott Royce
The sequel to Monkey Love, Monkey Star is an absolute delight. I enjoyed it so much that I emailed the author to ask when the third will be out (not something I do every day!).
2. Neat Vodka by Anna Blundy
I completely fell in love with this book and all the characters. I actually slowed down as I approached the end because I didn't want it to finish. Luckily it's part of a series.
1. Forget About It by Caprice Crane
Caprice Crane's debut novel, Stupid & Contagious was one of our favourite books of last year and also one of Sarah's favourites of this year so expectations were high for Forget About It, but it didn't disappoint. In fact, it cemented Caprice Crane as one of my favourite authors. I can't wait to see what she does next.
So there you have it - my top ten faves of the 150-odd books I read in 2007. If you haven't told us already, don't be shy - let us know *your* favourites!
