I finally voted in AAR's Annual Reader Poll. With a few hours to spare! Voting closes tonight at midnight.
I sat down with my 2007 reading grid and realized that I didn't actually read that many books that were published in 2007. It takes quite a while for most things to filter to the top of my TBR. Often over a year, apparently. I kept thinking of good things to vote for and then realizing that they were pub'd in 2006. I'm so slow.
Anyway, here's my ballot. I only voted in about half the categories.
Favorite funny - Agnes and the Hitman, Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer
Most-hanky read - Beau Crusoe, Carla Kelly
Most tortured hero - James Trevenen, Beau Crusoe
Strongest heroine - Lilith Milton, Demon Angel, Meljean Brook
Best romance hero - Dag Redwing, The Sharing Knife: Legacy, Lois McMaster Bujold
Best romance couple - Colin and Savi, Demon Moon, Meljean Brook
Best villain - Villiers, Desperate Duchesses, Eloisa James (Maybe I didn't get the point of this one, as Villiers is sort of likable. But he's so well drawn and interesting.)
Author most glommed - Eva Ibbotson (Was this supposed to be an author who published something in 2007? If so, this isn't going to count.)
Best European historical - Not Quite a Lady, Loretta Chase
Best romantic suspense - High Noon, Nora Roberts
Best SF, Fantasy - Demon Moon, Meljean Brook (Can I just say that the whole Fantasy/Paranormal distinction is SUPER confusing? I even read their little definition and still wasn't sure which category to put Demon Moon in. I hope I did it right.)
Best paranormal/time travel - No Humans Involved, Kelley Armstrong
Best chicklit/womens fiction - The Fortune Quilt, Lani Diane Rich
Least believable HEA - Sexiest Man Alive, Diane Holquist
Most disappointing romance - The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes, Crusie/Stuart/Dreyer
