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 :)
