I’m back from my hiatus and I want to start the new year out on the blog by sharing my favorite books that I read in 2014. I read a whopping 92 books in 2014! These are the ones that stuck with me and that really brought some enjoyment.

I did a list last year, too. Here’s the list from 2013. Previously I wrote a little blurb with my thoughts about the books, but this year I am going to let the books speak for themselves.

In no particular order, here are my favorite reads from 2014:

1.) A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini


2.) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer


3.) It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
