Hello, hello! Here is “part 2” of my favorites list for 2014. (Part one is all about the big and small screen.) I’m so excited to share these lists with you all as I do at the end of each year. This year I thought I’d come away with more than fourteen (I guess the general “rule” is sharing favorites numbering to the year), but I’m glad to report, I ended up with sixteen on the graphics. (Technically it was more if you count I have tree from the same author on this list plus I have one that’s not listed on the graphic.) But… moving on, the best books of 2014.
2014 and its authors gifted us with some amazing works of fiction. Some of the books release in 2015, others are from debut authors (good for you, all) and some are from seasoned veterans, who never seem to run out of fresh ideas. Either way, these are the books the genuinely stood out in my reader’s opinion.

…those are my top reads of 2014! I did try to be thorough in looking over the books I read in 2014, but there may be one or two I am overlooking. Here’s hoping I didn’t. Either way, the books that are featured above were definite stand-outs, favorites because of their charm or ingenuity… or sometimes just because in the quiet way it told a story, the book spoke the loudest of anything else. What were your favorites?
