It’s hard to fathom that this year is already more than half over. This realization got me thinking about my favorite books of 2014 so far. I wanted to include only the books that are out right now so you can get them at the library or bookstore. I thought I’d list some of these for you in case you’ve missed adding them to your TBR. I’ve written a one line sentence with an incredibly vague and brief reason/explanation of why I love the book. Click on the title to see my review for each.
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
The writing is superb and I loved the slow burn of the romance in this one.
The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey
I won’t say what this one is about but I can say that it fulfilled a hole in fiction I’ve been waiting for.
World of Trouble (The Last Policeman #3) by Ben Winters
This series. Wow, I loved it and that was surprising because I wasn’t sure it would be for me since it’s an adult book and detective story. I am a fan.
Free to Fall by Lauren Miller
This one came unsolicited and I fell in love with the story. Such a great book and I highly recommend it for anyone that likes young adult science fiction.
The Falconer by Elizabeth May
Yes, this book is about the fae but don’t let that stop you from reading it! Also, a lovely slow burn relationship.
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
So much love for this book! Pearson’s writing is wonderful and I loved the characters and relationships.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
If you’ve not read this series yet you must.
Am I missing your favorite of the year so far? Let me know which one in the comments.
