2007 TBR Challenge - final list (I hope)

As you may know, I am taking part in mizbooks' 2007 TBR challenge and I should now be done with my list of books. I picked 12 books I really want to read, and just in case have 12 alternate books, in case there are some stinkers among the original 12.
All those books have been on Mt. TBR since at least half a year by now, so they really should get off of there some day. Some I actually have since 2003!

My 2007 want to reads are:

Nancy Atherton: Aunt Dimity Digs In
Enid Blyton: Malory Towers omnibus 5
Harlan Coben: Drop Shot
Theodor Fontane: Frau Jenny Treibel (German classic)
P.J. Tracy: Dead Run
Stephanie Barron: Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor
J.D. Robb: Naked In Death
Tamar Myers: The Ming & I
Ann Brashares: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Janet Evanovich: Seven Up
Julia Spencer-Fleming: In The Bleak Midwinter
Jayne Anne Krentz: Hidden Talents

My alternates are:

Anita Shreve: Light On Snow
Rhys Bowen: Evan Help Us
Sue Grafton: C is for Corpse
Cameron West: First Person Plural (German edition)
Catherine Alliot: The Old-Girl Network
Bill Bryson: A Short History of Nearly Everything
Bill Bryson: Frühstück mit Kängurus (German edition for the one in Australia)
Robert B. Parker: Stardust
John Grisham: The Testament or The Brethren (not sure which one it is)
James Patterson: 1st to Die
Anita Diamant: The Red Tent
Susan Sussman: Audition for Murder

I can't wait to see what I got read at the end of this year!


  1. Kathrin, what a great list--all those books sound like such fun reads. I've got Julia Spencer-Fleming's book in my TBR room as well as The Red Tent. Sometime I'll get around to reading James Patterson's Murder Club series.

    I hope you enjoy Dead Run as much as I did--it's my favorite of the writing duo's books. And Sue Grafton is one of my favorite mystery writers.

    Happy Reading!

  2. I just tried reading Naked in Death and was not able to finish it. I just couldn't get past the futuristic aspect of it. I am eager to hear what you have to say about it, as I only have heard great things. You have some other excellent books on both of your lists!

  3. Kathrin, your list looks really good. I read The Red Tent a number of years ago and still think about it from time to time. I keep telling myself I should pick it up and read it again. I also just started Naked in Death and I'm loving it. I hope you enjoy it too!!
