Musing Monday: Favorites So Far

Coming towards the end of April, we’re a third of the way through the way through the year. What’s the favourite book you’ve read so far in 2009? What about your least favourite? (question courtesy of MizB)

My favorite book so far this year is THE THIRTEENTH TALE by Diane Setterfield with THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett extremely close behind. I absolutely fell in love with Setterfield's writing and the story just kept going and going. I was never bored with it and loved the ending. THE HELP was southern fiction at it's best! Being a southerner myself, I was smitten by this book even before I read it.
As far as least favorite, nothing really comes to mind. I've been fortunate to have read some really good books this year. That being said, if I had to list them in order from 'ok' to 'most loved', I would probably say 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN by Don Piper would be it, only for the fact that I didn't care for all the medical details of his injuries sustained in the car crash. But that's not to say I didn't like the book.
I think 2009 is going to be a fabulous reading year for me as there are so many great books out there I want to read. What are your thoughts on this musing? Do you have a favorite or a least favorite to share? For more responses to this question visit Just One More Page.


  1. I have to agree with you about The Help..I loved it.
    The Thirteenth Tale...hmmmm...it was ok for me but not at the top of my list.

  2. I enjoyed The Thirteeth Tale too. I keep looking to see if the author has another book coming out but I haven't heard anything yet.

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed The Thirteeth Tale too!

  4. I know with The Help I'm in for a treat since many of you have endorsed it. :)

  5. I'm listening to The Help now and am loving every second!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
