I was very disappointed in Lee Child's latest Reacher book. It seemed like he really phoned it in on Nothing To lose.

Hopefully, that series will get back to the way it was a couple of books ago.

Great job with the lists, David! Keep it up!


His sentences are painfully beautiful: "She laughed too knowingly and wore tight skirts and would end in an apartment in Elmont or Uniondale, married to the fiercest, sexiest boy, who'd carve the years straight into her skin with his tempers and habits."

Hey, Tasha. You're half right.


this, from Cunningham's The Hours, proves you must mean the latter part is true:

"There's just this for consolation: an hour, here or there, when our lives seem against all expectations to burst open and give us everything we've ever imagined... Still, we hope, more than anything, for more."

New this year: Linked titles lead to the original post, if one exists. (The link for Maps and Legends goes to Karen Horton's beautiful photos over at design:related.) And back from last year: there's a poll at the bottom of the post. Voting is open until Dec 31; I'll post the results shortly after the new year begins.

A very small number of titles were actually published in December 2007. Last year's list was published early (Nov 15), and a few of the books published at the end of 2007 really needed to be included here. And the cover for The Medium Is The Massage? A reissue, but too wonderful not to include.
