I'm not trying to say that these were the ten best books from 2014, cause that's just silly. Some of what I'm including on this list came out before the year even started, and since I didn't read every book published in 2014, I will never call these books the best. What I am saying, is that these are my ten favorite books that I read/reviewed during the year.
2014 saw a huge change in not just my reading habits, but in my reviewing habits as well. For the last few years, I've reviewed every single book that I've read. 2014 was the first year that that became psychically impossible to do. For whatever reason, I got hooked on romance novels last year, and read over 400 of them on my NOOK. There is no way I could have reviewed them all, especially since a lot of them were read during my blogging hiatus. I do occasionally, pick one at random and do a review of it, but that's about as far as I'm getting with those. Chances are I will never review them all, and that's okay.
So with no further ado, here are my favorite reads of the last year, in order that I reviewed them.
