I didn't take very obsessive records last year, so unfortunately there may be one or two I forgot, and I could've sworn I read The Subtle Knife in February or March when I was home sick for a couple days, but it's the last one on my '07 list so I am thoroughly confused.

Hopefully I'll have a better literary 2009 (maybe I'll actually complete it for once!).
 
EDIT: Oh mon dieu.  It keeps cutting off my last three for no particular reason.  So here -
19. Animal Farm by George Orwell
20. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
21. The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

15445 / 15000 pages. 103% done! 

Beyond the reading, I'm back from Atlanta, am sitting on my last day off and a load of homework, and am thoroughly freaked out to be on this side of the school year heading towards finals and AP shit and the horrors of SAT.  I am, however, one step closer to NYC, college, summer, Equus :P, and the return of television.  It evens out rather nicely.

And towards 2008's fifty books, I am soso close to being finished with The Sweet Far Thing:


That is all.  Happy New Year!

1. Such a Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
2. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
3. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
4. Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause
5. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
6. A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
7. Gunslinger Girl Vol. 1 by Yu Aida
8. The Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr
9. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan
10. Night by Elie Wiesel

The Angel of Darkness: Lazlo Kreizler has my heart. As does Mr. Carr for creating him and these two brilliant novels. That is all.

The Cement Garden: Short and sweet - like one long, languishing summer day with touch of creepy and a bit of incest on the side.

Night: Horrifying and amazing. I kept getting his story mixed up with Gloria's, which throws the reality of it all into stark perspective.

Hopefully my slow-reading self will get something done en France. I was hoping to have A Great and Terrible Beauty done with, but it was not to be.
