Top Ten Tuesday: Favourites of 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. They created it because they're "particularly fond of lists" and since I also enjoy lists, I've decided to participate in this fun feature.

I love looking back at my year of reading. I'm lucky to have been able to read a lot of books (98 at the time of this post) and it's honestly really hard to keep track of them! So, these recap/best of posts are great to remind me of all the fabulous (and not so fabulous) books I read over the year. Thanks to my handy "read in 2014" list on Goodreads, here are my ten favourite books from the past year! Note: I was completely shocked that only two chick lit books (by the same author) made it on this list! I wonder if it's because I tried to branch out more this year? Because you'll also note quite a few YA books on this list! You'll also note that I've cheated a bit...there are two authors who have two books on my favourite list so I combined them! What were some of your favourites this year? Links lead to my review or Goodreads.

The Rule of Thirds - Chantel Guertin
Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

The Orenda - Joseph Boyden

Burying Water and One Tiny Lie - K.A. Tucker
Hard Hats and Doormats - Laura Chapman
The Heiresses - Sara Shepard


  1. It's official. I'm moving My Life with the Walter Boys up on my TBR list. I had two of your other YA books on my list, so since we have much of the same taste, I'm sure I'll love that book too.

  2. Thank you so much for including HARD HATS AND DOORMATS (and me) on your list. XOXO

  3. I'm so thrilled that you included not one, but TWO of my books on your list this year. That makes me so happy. Thank you!

  4. I still need to read Burying Water! I'll have to steal it from Mlee lol!

  5. Thanks for including me on the list!
