You've got some really good books here, Cath. Quite a few Young Adult books. I enjoyed the Maggie Sefton book and the Jodi Picoult book. Of course, I loved STILL LIFE and THE BEEKEEPERS APPRENTICE. I still need to read THE BOOK THIEF and will do that hopefully in 2008. Nice list!

Thanks, Kay, I think it's been a really good reading year. Yes, I love young adult books, I think they're the most imaginative genre around at the moment and I certainly plan to read a lot more this year (am reading one at the moment in fact). I hope you manage to get around to The Book Thief. I would easily put that into a top three of my books read last year and it might even be my favourite.
