Another year has come and gone. This year it left so many wonderful books in it’s wake. I’ve selected 10 books released in 2014 that made me a very happy reader. As I prepared this list it highlighted to me just how hard a time I’ve had this year reviewing. 60% of my list is unreviewed (although I did write a blurb about Reunion by Hannah Pittard for Bloggers Recommend). That is a topic for an upcoming post, but it couldn’t go unrecognized here. I wouldn’t want anyone to mistake the lack of a formal or even mini review to take away from any of the unreviewed books on this list. They are all spectacular.
They are listed in no particular other than that I’m beginning with two books that I think were the most overlooked. I want to give them a little extra love.
Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican
Reunion by Hannah Pittard
All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters
The Headmaster’s Wife by Thomas Christopher Greene
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
Now that I’ve shared my list, what books made you a happy reader this year?
