Favourites - well I loved Gone Girl and YAY they're making the movie! The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Da Vinci Code - it took me a while to jump on the bandwagon for those two! Oh, and I loved The Messenger by Markus Zusak who wrote The Book Thief which I also loved. He writes so well. Really captivates you.
Fizzers - Well I was excited about The Elegance of the Hedgehog but didn't enjoy it at all. Also not to keen on Cloudstreet and The Reader.
As for children's books - I didn't really love any this year. The Golden Door was probably my favourite. Artemis Fowl would be the least favourite.
Have you read any of these?
