Today, Month of Favorites participants are jumping in with the Top Ten Tuesday topic over at Broke and the Bookish: Top 10 Favorite Books of the Year. In keeping with that, I figured there was no better day for me to announce...
The Well-Read Redhead's Best Books of 2014!
If you are a careful reader of my blog (and who isn't, RIGHT?), you may be surprised by some of my choices...and some of my non-choices. There are books on here that, in my initial review, I enjoyed but maybe wasn't completely gushing over. And there are books not on the list that I mentioned as potential favorites when I wrote my reviews. But at the end of the year, when I make this list, I go by what's really stuck with me--after months have passed, what are the books that are still leaving an impression? Still giving me something to think about?
As in past years, this list is in no particular order, and with links to my original reviews:
1. The Three by Sarah Lotz
2. Man V. Nature by Diane Cook
3. Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
4. What I Had Before I Had You by Sarah Cornwell
5. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
6. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
7. Above by Isla Morley
8. The One & Only by Emily Giffin
9. The Memory of Love by Linda Olsson
10. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
That does it for 2014! In going over everything I read this year, I realized how many excellent books I enjoyed in the last 12 months. A truly fantastic year for reading!
