Mostly Fiction's
Top Fiction Read in 2007

Our Top Fiction is based on the books that we READ this year. It is not limited to those that we reviewed or those published in 2007. This makes the list broader than the few books we were able to review this year and also keeps with our philosphy that a good book never goes out of style. does like to review the new books as they come out -- it is exciting to see what our favorite authors are up to and to discover new ones-- but we never want to pass up a good read, no matter when it was written!
