My Top 6 Fave Reads of 2014

reading challenge

GoodReads Challenge Accepted … and completed!

I took the GoodReads Book Challenge last year and managed to complete it, even with my chaotic schedule.   Okay, 26 books may not seem that impressive, but considering I wrote 1.5 books, edited my own and two others for writing partners, taught full-time, and chased around my awesome kids. I wear 26 books as a badge of honor. I just wish I could log a set of graded essays as a book. If I could do that, my list would be very impressive indeed.

So, I will shut up now, and get to my list.

6. The One by Kiera Cass, the third novel in The Selection Series
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian Romance
This whole series is well-paced and always fun. The story is predictable enough to make you feel safe, but there are enough twists and turns to keep you interested. The characters are well-developed and likable. It is the fluffiest read I have on my list, but gosh darn it, sometimes I like fluffy! It does have heart.
Parental Note: PG
