Favorite Books of 2007

Even though the year isn't quite over yet, I thought I'd post my favorite books of 2007. I did a lot of reading this year (over 140 books!) and I posted reviews for 36 of those. I've never made a New Year's Resolution but I'm thinking that maybe this year I'll resolve to read 200 books and post reviews for 70 of them.

Em's Fav Teen Books of 2007 (in no particular order)
Tithe by Holly Black
The Immortals quartet by Tamora Pierce
Undercover by Beth Kephart
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

I've really loved blogging this year. It's so exciting to chat with other people who love great books and teen books in particular. Thanks to everyone for all the recommended books that are now on my list of must-reads! And check back later this week for a special book contest.


  1. I listened to Evolution, Me and Other Freaks of Nature on audio. It was fantastic!

  2. Every 9th grader in our school was given a copy of that book and the author came in and spoke to them in an assembly. It was awesome! Although we did have some students whose parents wouldn't let them read the books just because of the title and that kind of made me sad.

    It was interesting to have class discussions about the reading and how they felt about it and who they agreed/disagreed with. All of them thought that turning their chairs around would not only get them in trouble but would also be beyond disrespectful.

  3. Tithe was very good, I enjoyed that book as well!
