books in 2007


I've decided to keep a list of the books I read in 2007, and maybe a little review about them, so I can keep track (and in case anyone is interested).

Books read in 2007

5. American Gods - Neil Gaiman

4. Lipstick Jungle - Candace Bushnell

[from Febuary 17]

3. Front Row: Anna Wintour - Jerry Oppenheimer
A biography about US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who is supposedly the most influential person in the fashion industry, and also the inspiration for the book/movie "The Devil Wears Prada" (whom the Miranda Priestly character was based on). I really loved this book, reading about Anna Wintour and how she grew up, and the career decisions and people who helped her to move up to the top post of editor-in-chief of Vogue.

2. Shopaholic & Baby - Sophie Kinsella
The 5th book in the Shopaholic series. This book was really cute & girly, it was a pretty easy & enjoyable read. I like reading about Becky Bloomwood's shopping adventures ;)

1. Once While Travelling: The Lonely Planet Story - Tony & Maureen Wheeler
Part travel, part business, this is the story of how the Lonely Planet guidebooks began in the 70's, and grew from being a handprinted book into the huge global name they are now. I really love books like this, that tell the story of how a company began & grew & survived, and especially when it is mixed with something else I love, like travel.

Currently reading

x. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - J K Rowling (reread)
x. More, Now, Again - Elizabeth Wurtzel
x. The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
x. The End of Fashion - Teri Agins
