What was the best book you read in 2012, and why? (And by "Why?" I mean: Why did you read it? And why was it your favourite? Although these answers could be one and the same...!)

  1. That's a hard one! I've read so many this year, but I guess I will have to go with "Divine Signatures" by Gerald Lund. Why? Because it was a great reminder that God is always there for us, even in the little things.

  2. Ooo that's a tough one, like Sarah I've also read so many this year! Most recently I read "In Falling Snow" by Mary-Rose MacColl, a freebie kindly sent to me by the publisher via the Kidspot website, for review. It promised to be "completely absorbing" on the cover and indeed it was, which was exactly what I needed for the very early days of demand feeding a newborn! A thought-provoking book yet also an easy read, and had me in tears a few times too which I think is evidence of a good tale (although possibly also due to hormones lol). Anyhoo I highly recommend it for christmas hol reading :-)

  3. It would have to be 'Bring up the Bodies' by Hilary Mantel for me. I loved 'Wolf Hall' but I think the former is marginally better. Both deserving Booker Prize winners.

  5. I cannot remember what I read this year or what I read the year before. I know that I started o reread the walker papers but I have not completed them. I spend more time doing my crochet , hooping or doing people's hair. I fear getting lost in a book as I don't like to be found once I am lost. It makes me a very grumpy mama bear indeed
