Booking through Thursday - Recent Best

"What is the best book you've read recently?"

You would think asking what is the best book you've read recently is a simple question and there should be a simple answer. But I have to borrow from a famous or infamous (depending on your point of view) party and ask define "recently." Call me weird, but for grins I looked up the definition of recent:

  1. Lately
  2. not long past
  3. of or belonging to a time not long past
  4. (geology) noting or pertaining to the present epoch, originating at the end of the glacial period, about 10,000 years ago, and forming the latter half of the Quaternary Period; Holocene.

Okie doke. The best book I've read in the not so distant past is the one I just finished "Water Witch," which I have not reviewed yet.

Something to look forward to. It was spooky, creepy, funny, and not one you want to read right before you go to bed or you won't be going to sleep. Deborah LeBlanc has found a new fan.

Now, if you were to ask me what's the best book I've read all year, I really wouldn't be able to make up my mind and we'd be here all day while I debate it.

What's the best book you've read "recently?"


  1. You are RIGHT! This question is harder to answer than it seems. Your book sounds interesting. I chose Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons because after two months, I still cannot shake the story. :)

  2. I just finished Outlander which of course I loooved. BUT, the best book I read (MAY) was The Voice in The Wind by Francine Rivers. Totally Awesome.

  3. I think that I want to read Water Witch at some point...I am going to add it to my list. I love books that you look forward to reading each day!

  4. I'm really missing the good spooky reads so I'll have to check this one out.
    It's a cool idea to put down the definitions of 'recent'. I was wondering that myself since in the past couple of months none of the books I read were awesome enough to be mentioned.

  5. Looking forward to your review!

  6. It was hard for me to pick just one favorite, so I did a top five :) Here's my BTT.

  7. I can't wait to read your review of this one!! I've read so many good books lately that it would be hard for me to pick just one!

  8. I guess I'd have to say The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I did a review of it back in Jan. on my blog. It's still my recent favorite.

  9. Haha, seems like a lot of people answering didn't really consider the words "recent" or "lately."

  10. Whoaa spooky and creepy?? my kind of book :) I'll be looking for this one for sure

  11. I'm like you. I find it hard to pick just one ... there are so many different types of books I love for different reasons.
