Musing Mondays is hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page.

Today's musing is the following:

Coming towards the end of April, we’re a third of 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)

Whew! Glad we're picking "favorite and least favorite" instead of "best and worst." What I think is the best written isn't always the book I like best!

Now that I feel I'm off the hook, how do I narrow things down to just one favorite? I read from several different genres, so sometimes it can seem like comparing apples and oranges. I think I will base my choice on which book would I choose to re-read if I could only choose one. Hmmmm.

My pick for favorite is: THE KING'S DAUGHTER by Sandra Worth. I read this in early January and absolutely loved every minute of it. I'd read it again in a heartbeat. In fact -- I WILL read it again so that I can post a review. And coming in at a close second: HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET by Jamie Ford.

Least Favorite: Those Who Dream By Day by Linda and Gary Cargill. I think this book fell far short of it's potential, and I was deeply disappointed.

What about you? What did you like best and least?

I agree that Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is a good one. Didn't make my top two, but it was very good.

Hotel was a good, but I have others that are favorites.

I really liked The School of Essential Ingredients and also That Went Well, a memoir about a woman growing up with her mentally challenged sister. I would have to say the worst was The Organ Grinder and the Monkey....couldn't even get through that one.
