We are SUPER excited to look back on 2014 with the ladies from Reading YA Rocks, Two Chicks on Books, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Tales of a Ravenous Reader. They've put together a blog hop of sorts, looking back on the books we read in 2014 and looking forward to the ones we'll read in 2015. They've got some fun topics lined up, but today's is the BEST BOOKS I'VE READ IN 2014. (You can check out the full week's line-up here.) Since we focused on new releases on last week's Top Ten Tuesday, we thought we'd go with the top ten best contemporary novels we read in 2014 for this exercise. =)
Luckily, I read way more sci-fi and fantasy than I do contemporary, so I had a pretty easy time deciding on my favorites of 2014. I am slowly reading more and more contemporary, though, and even venturing into some authors' backlists to find new favorites. I've already read one 2015 contemporary title and it was amazing, so I have a feeling doing this list at the end of next year might be a bit more difficult. =)
Most of these books made my cry... I should mention that as well. lol.
