A few "Bests": seen or read in 2007

It's been a Cormac McCarthy year:

Best mainstream/literary novel: The Road. Runner up: see YA novel

Best movie: No Country for Old Men. Runners up: Once and Stranger Than Fiction (dvd).

Best fantasy/sf novel: Inda by sartorias; runner up: The Virtu by truepenny

Best YA novel (and runner up for best novel, period) Aidan Chambers, The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn

Special category: Best noir (courtesy of the Black Wednesday group) Kiss Me Deadly; runner up The Big Sleep

Next year, I'll do a complete list, as one of my vague resolutions for this one is to keep better track of my reading! I don't post everything, so only remember the really memorable. But I think a complete list would be fun and interesting to me if not to anyone else :)

I won't make resolutions - they are too easily broken - but one of my
plans
for the year is to keep a proper list of my reading. I wonder how many of our books will coincide?

Would be fun and interesting to me too!

I started writing down all books I read about 5 years ago, maybe more, having been inspired by a year's list poster to the DWJ list. Even though that was pre-LJ days, and I do blather here about a lot of the books I've read, I still like writing them down in a notebook as well.
