It was really fun taking a peek at collective blogger favorites (and creating a great reading list to boot!), so I’m planning to give this a go next year. One of my goals was to keep the number of categories fairly minimal without allowing for too many books to be completely shut out. I realized early on (but, sadly, not early enough) that I should have had a thriller/mystery category, so I will be adding that for next year. If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to share!
