2014 Year in Review

It has been a wonderful year and I have read some wonderful books.  I love looking through all the books I've read in a year and remembering each of them.  Some of them I liked, some I loved and some were not really my favorite, but in general it was a great book year.  I always have a hard time picking a favorite, but this years clear winner has been The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North.  It was fantastic and I can't wait to reread it.  For months it has been the first book that comes to mind when someone asks for a book recommendation.  If you haven't read it yet, it is time.
