Definitely the year of contemporaries! I've had so much fun with these contemporaries. I loved To All the Boys I've Loved Before's plot line as well as Lara Jean's voice. #Scandal's contemporary/mystery combo was superb. Since You've Been Gone's discover yourself theme with the bucket list was so sweet. Rites of Passage's military themed plot is a home run.
I love Jennifer Echols' books. Biggest Flirts, (book 1 in the superlatives series) is no exception. Nearly Gone took me by surprise with its dark mystery and smart plot line. Breathe, Annie, Breathe was heartbreaking and beautiful. Don't Look Back's mystery was fantastic and it's JLA, how could she ever write anything less than amazing?
Then comes Jojo Moyes' One Plus One. As well as The Woman Who Stole my Life by Marian Keyes (the only 4.5 star book on this list! rest all 5 stars). I unfrotunetly only read 13 adult books this year. It is a shame because out of the thirteen, two are on this list. I loved One Plus One so so much and I already own Me Before You and am planning on picking it up in January. As for The Woman Who Stole my Life.. this book was a whirlwind. I can't wait to read more Marian Keyes books.
Surprisingly, paranormal books crept up on me! I am not a paranormal fan but these books, I actually devoured them all. The Dispossessed series (The Beautiful and the Cursed, The Lovely and the Lost) are just so freaking addicting. I can't recommend them enough. Sinner won over its predecessor (Shiver, Linger, Forever) in that St. Cole is one heck of a main protagonist! Unmarked is the sequel to Unbreakable and it did not disappoint one bit.
Shadows and Haze are another series (The Rephaim) that took me by surprise. I was so obsessed (and still am) with these books. I can't wait for book 3 and 4. Sister's Fate is the last book in The Cahill Witch Chronicles and it blew me away. It is definitely a worthy conclusion to this amazing magical trilogy.
Three amazing and mind blowing trilogies. Starting with Blue Lily, Lily Blue and it was perfect. So engrossing and enthralling. Shadow and Bone was my first real fantasy book and I fell in love with it (I already completed the trilogy but this was my favorite). The Retirbution of Mara Dyer *cries* I love this trilogy so much and this book killed me in every possible way (in a good way).
Seems every year, my dysotpian favorites list drops. However these two are worthy contenders against any book. You guys know how much I love the Shatter Me trilogy and this book, it is actually my favorite book of 2014, hands down. The Immortal Rules was so unique and addicting, I couldn't help but binge read the whole trilogy and I loved it.
