Our Favorite Books of 2014

Nearing the end of every year we are inundated by Best of the Year lists. Of course at a library we pay the most attention to the lists of best books.  We here at Syosset R and R would like to add to the mix and tell you what our reading favorites were for 2014.  Our staff was asked to tell us what books they enjoyed most during the year and the books did not have to be published during this year.

Today, Amy, Children’s Services Librarian and Sonia, Reference Librarian share their 2014 favorites.

In the Last Analysis by Amanda Cross (finally found another really good mystery series.)

The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert (even if you didn’t care for Eat, Pray, Love, give her another try.)

Middlemarch by George Eliot (Maybe the best book I’ve ever read)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (Reread of my favorite book – even better the second time around)

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon (No, I’m not up to date on these: I never want them to end!)

Have a very Happy New Year!
