Their Favorite Books of 2007: Deb Caletti

Tonight, author Deb Caletti will be chatting with readers via readergirlz.

Today, she lists her favorite reads of the year.

Young adult pick: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie: "He's a fellow Seattle-ite, and I read the book cover-to-cover with barely a pause. [It] stayed with me."

Two memoirs she couldn't put down: Truth and Beauty by Anne Patchett and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

Two pieces of literary fiction: In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien and The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty

More fiction: "I also loved The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank so much that I promptly read her next one, The Wonder Spot. Both delightful."

Non-fiction: "I read a great deal of nonfiction - mostly about psychology and human behavior. I am currently reading Love at Goon Park, which is the story of Harry Harlow's studies on human affection and is very interesting."

Find out what others have read and loved this year.
