I still can't believe that I read 100 books this year! Some were fantastic, and some were duds. I won't go over every single one of them, but these were my favorites of the year. I couldn't do a top-10 list because there were way too many great books!
First, and probably my proudest accomplishment, was the Bible. I finally read it through in a whole year, like I've wanted to forever. I learned so much!
I discovered some fantastic authors in 2014. One of the best was Harlan Coben-- I read 17 of his books this year! I can't tell you how much I loved the Myron Bolitar series.
I also read much of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series this year. While I found it sometimes cheesy and predictable, they're very sweet stories, and I'm quite sucked into these people's stories!
I finally dove into the Harry Potter series and LOVED it. JK Rowling created an amazing world with such great characters that I could not stop reading. Amazing.
Lost Lake // Garden Spells // Sugar Queen // The Peach Keeper // The Girl Who Chased the Moon // First Frost
I also read some fantastic books outside of these authors. My favorite book genre is mystery and suspense, so that's where most of my reading time is spent. There were some great books in this genre last year that it was hard to narrow down my favorites!
The Gods of Guilt // The Silent Wife // The Other Typist // Before I Go to Sleep // The Man from St. Petersburg // The Firm // The Burning Room
These are some of my other fiction favorites. Mostly chick lit and Christian fiction, which was surprisingly better than I expected. Often, I find Christian fiction kind of cheesy, but I loved these.
I've Got Your Number // The One and Only // Last Night at Chateau Marmont // Bridge to Haven // Wonderland Creek // All Things New
I also read a fair amount of non fiction this year. Mostly memoirs, which I always find fascinating, but also one that totally changed the way I see food and one that had me seething about our justice system.
And last, but certainly not least, is a book that is technically non-fiction but doesn't really fit in a category. I did not really want to read it, but I need a book by a blogger for a book challenge this summer. And within 20 pages, I was curled up on my side crying from laughing. Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half was quite possibly the most entertaining book I read all year. It was so hilariously funny (while not being very snarky and mean) but also with the most poignant description of depression I've ever read. I definitely recommend it!
