Musing Mondays-- Favorites So Far in 2009

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?

I would have to say that my two favorite books so far this year are He Saw a Hummingbird about a man who loses his sight to diabetes but goes on to adapt his photographic equipment to do something that no one else had done before: take quality photos of hummingbirds, and Flight, a time-shifting tale about a young man in search of his identity. (If you click on the book covers, you'll be taken to my reviews of both books.)

As far as my least favorite book of the year so far, I'd have to say that it's the only book I haven't finished-- The Dragonfly: A Bury St. Edmunds Historical Time Travel Novel. The writer's style worked my last nerve to the point where I put that book down and chose another.

What about all of you? Do you have any "picks" and "pans" so far this year? I'd love to hear about them!


  1. When I read your post on He Saw a Hummingbird I thought it sounded inspriational - not surprised it's a favourite of yours.

    Shame about the other book.

    My favourite and least favourite are here.

  2. My favourite books of the year so far are The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Blindness by Jose Saramago. They have similar, disturbing themes, but are very different books. I highly recommend then to everyone!

  3. Gosh, I guess I should have included books I did not finish in my 'most disliked'.
    I will have to check out Hummingbird. Wow, these sort of posts are bad for my growing TBR pile..

  4. Wow - talking favorites already? I don't want to do that until at least HALF the year is over ;)

  5. Margaret--thanks for the link!

    Kathy--There you go again with the Ego Booster! LOL

    Jackie--I have Blindness on my TBR shelves!

    Caite--I know what you mean. I'm always finding new books to read when I check out everyone's posts!

    Lenore--I know. It was a bit of a shock to me, too!


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
