Best of the Best

Everywhere you turn the lists of the best novels of 2005 are cropping up. There’s the Guardian’s best books list chosen by authors. The American Library Association has two book lists, one for best young adult and one for children’s.

My long-standing favorite is the New York Time’s notable books of 2005 list. Let’s see, I’ve read a total of 1 from that list.

I love to look at these lists and I like to make my own, but there is one thing, we still have a month left in the year! What if I read the best book of the year during my Christmas holidays?

I know these lists are there to give people gift ideas but if you want to know what my favorite reads of the year were, you’ll just have to stay tuned. I promise to let you know – it’ll just be closer to the end of the year.
