VOYA has two great book lists available online this month. Both are lists of the top books of 2006.
First is the ever-wonderful list of the Best Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Usually I have read a large number of these, because it’s my favorite genre, but this year I find myself looking at many books I have never heard of. I must disagree with the inclusion of The Princetta on the list, but somehow everyone seems to love that title except me. Ah well. Except for that quibble, every other book I have read on the list deserves its place entirely.
Another favorite for me is poetry and VOYA has their list of Poetry Picks for 2006. I don’t tend to read as much teen poetry books as I do poetry books for children, but again those I have read on the list are winners.
Just a mention that the VOYA links are to pdf files. They can take a little while to load, so be patient. The fastest way to have to reboot your browser is to be impatient with pdf files.
