Books read in 2007

I read 107 books in 2007 and most (99%) were romances.

I started this blog late in the year (November) and so most of the books I read aren't reviewed here. I would go back and review the books, however, I don't remember most of the details and I would want to reread in order to get the facts correct, something that I don't particularly want to do if the book wasn't a great read.

Anyway, here is a summary of my 2007 reads. (Italicized titles are books that aren't traditional "romances." Chick-lit, mystery, general fiction, etc would fall under this category.)
