TOP 7 LISTS OF 2007

Okay - it is finally that time! After reading books, books and more books this year - I have picked out 2 Top 7 Lists for 2007. The books I picked did not have to be released in 2007, I just had to read them in 2007, in fact I think about 1/2 are from 2007 and 1/2 aren't. My hope is that these lists will give you some new titles and authors you maybe haven't read yet that you can go out and get or give you a reason to pick up that book on your shelf and reread it. It was a great year for reading though - that's for sure and I hope these lists and the books on them will be a blessing to you! (The books are being posted in no particular order - I love them all and would never be able to put them in a like most to least order - it is just random :-)

The two lists are as follows:

The Top 7 Most Entertaining Books of 2007 (according to Janna)

The Top 7 Most Life Changing Books of 2007 (according to Janna)

My criteria for each list was basically as follows:

For Most Entertaining - it needed to be a book that made me laugh, made me cry, made me feel good and was unique in some way or form. For instance you will find that many of the books on this list have unique settings or characters or time periods and in every case these books have to be books that I will keep on my shelf because I will want to read them again and again (also needs to be a book that I want to recommend/loan/buy for family and friends - definitely the sign of a good book!)

For Most Life Changing - it needed to be a book that made me smile, made me cry, made me think, made me want to change who I am as a person when I was done reading it and maybe most importantly - made me want to change the world around me to be a better place. This also needs to be a book that I feel everyone should read. I think all the books I have on this list fit this criteria well.

Many of these authors have done interviews with me that I will be posting and many of them are doing book giveaways as well! For any giveaways that you want to be a part of, please make sure that you leave a comment on that particular interview or review. If you aren't entering that particular drawing but have read the book, please leave a comment telling us your thoughts on that book. For books that I don't have interviews on, I will be posting my review and thoughts on it. I will be posting one book from each list everyday for the next 7 days - I hope you all enjoy finding out who made my lists!


THESE ARE ALL IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER! Make sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you post a comment.

What a great idea to get us who don't get around more familiar with that is out there that is wholesome to read as well as get to know the authors that write them. You can plan to count on seeing me visit all 7 days. Thanks.

I know I left a comment above, but being the last of the 7 days, I commend you for seeing this through and sharing with us. I had the most wonderful days looking forward to learning about each of the books. Thank you for your efforts.
