BEST OF 2014 GIVEAWAY HOP


I didn't read as much this year, and I also found myself revisiting many of my past favorite books when I felt like I needed to visit an old friend. So as I sat down to pick my favorite reads I realized I didn't have as many as I thought. In years past, I have come up with a top ten best of the year, but I think this year I am going to share a top five, with some honorable mentions. Because folks that is all I've got for you this year, but I think we've still got some winners on our hands.

1. LOVE AND OTHER FOREIGN WORDS: ERIN McCAHAN

Erin McCahan wrote one of my all time favorite books in 2010, and I was so excited for her second book. It exceeded my expectations and I absolutely adored it.

2. ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER: STEPHANIE PERKINS

Another eagerly awaited release that knocked my socks off. I loved being back in Paris for Isla's love story.

3. THE SHADOW PRINCE: BREE DESPAIN

Bree is one of my dearest, oldest friends and I can admit that I probably would never have read this book if that wasn't the case, because...well...it wouldn't seem like my thing. And yet, it is so good that it makes it my thing.

4. THE VOW: JESSICA MARTINEZ

My favorite boy/girl friendship that I have ever read.

5.TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE

One of my favorite moments this year was meeting Jenny Han and having her sign my books. I have never had a author entertain me so much by read their work out loud. I can't wait for book #2 in this series!

HONORABLE MENTIONS:
This year I also read and LOVED all of
