2014 HITS and MISSES!

Here's a look at some of the hits (and sad, sad misses) of my year of reading in 2014! It's too many books to list entirely, but I've linked my 10 favorite below.

It was a sometimes-weird year of reading for me, because I had huge swaths of time where, even though I liked what I was reading, I wanted to move on. As I mentioned in my 2015 Mission Statement, I left a bookish body trail in my wake last year, and I'm not entirely sure why that was. But I did manage to make it through a nice chunk of books, and below we're going to take a look at which of them were faves, and which of them totally flopped.

Thanks for watching, and let me know your best from '14 in the comments!

(okay, actually I listed 11 in the video, so...bonus!)
The Lost
Keturah & Lord Death
Tin Star
In the Age of Love and Chocolate
Titan Magic: Body & Soul
Grave Mercy
Please Ignore Vera Dietz
Stolen Songbird
The Return of Zita the Spacegirl

I also mentioned that a number of these have sequels in my 2015 Most Anticipated list, so here's to looking forward to an excellent year of reading those in 2015!


  1. That's a great list, especially Tin Star, which hasn't gotten enough love.

  2. What struck me was that I had really only read two of your long list- Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart and Grave Mercy, but they were reads from earlier. That said, several of those are books that I do want to read. I enjoyed several this year including a few NA authors like Christina Lee and KA Tucker. Jeannie Lin's first Steampunk which was set in China, Gunpowder Alchemy and even her Tang dynasty Romantic Suspense, the Jade Temptress was fab. My UF surprise love was Cecy Robson's Weird Girls and of course Patricia Briggs' latest Mercy Thompson and Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson. I explored some historical mystery with Mary Hart Perry's The Shadow Princess (blurb had Jack the Ripper mentioned and I was there) and Deanna Raybourn's new roaring 20s adventures were fab. Straight up historical new fav is Elizabeth Loupas- love her Medici stuff. My Jane Austenish fixes that were fun or just good were Monica Fairview's Steampunk Darcy and Jane and the 12 Days of Christmas by Stephanie Barron. There were piles more that I adored and like you I had some real misses, but more hits.
    Glad it was a good year of reading for you even if it got a bit squiggly toward the end.

  3. You cut your hair! And your kitty is tres adorable. Thanks for the recommendations- I'm relieved that several of those are already on my shelf and wishlist, because I was nervous about adding 50 books to my library to-check-out list (it's already 410 books long). :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
