Syosset R and R tries to follow as many other book blogs as time allows just because we love books and we also like to see how others are doing it. Recently we saw a blog post onThe Broke and the Bookish called “Julia’s End of Year Book Survey” in which a list of questions about books for 2012 were answered. The list originated as a survey on the blog The Perpetual Page Turner where it is to be found yearly. Syosset R and R has circulated some of the questions to our library staff and hope to be publishing the answers that we get back throughout the first half of January 2013. So our thanks to both of the aforementioned Blogs for the inspiration. Here’s the sixth installment of questions, answered by Brenda, Reference Librarian:
Best Book You Read in 2012?
The Women of the Cousins’ War by Philippa Gregory.
Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going to Love More But Didn’t?
Well, I am not sure I expected to LOVE it but did expect to like it more based on other’s comments: Porch Lights by Dorothea Benton Frank.
Most thrilling, unputdownable book in 2012?
Um…probably Kate Morton’s The Secret Keeper.
Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2012 to finally read?
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford(which I liked!!!).
