Best of 2014


Another year is gone. That fact would be really sad if the best of list wasn’t my favorite of the year. This year we read some amazing books. My year appears to be made up of books featuring unique female characters. Even if they were not the main characters they were still amazing. Looking back on this year I also find that I love airships. There are more airships to come next year. I know this for a fact because I just bought a slue of them. Jessica’s year was made up of love triangles and sleeping beauties. Fun stuff.

I like knowing where I’ve been so that I know where I’m going. My resolution for next year is to read more steampunk and possibly more graphic novels. So let’s end 2014 with a love fest of the best books we read this year and then we’ll tell you about our awards for New Year’s day. Be sure not to miss our Friday post about the books we bought this month and will be reading next year.

Our requirements for this list were:

1) We had to have read the book in 2014

2) It had to be a full length novel

Without further ado here is our list of the best books that we read in 2014. These are in no special order.
