It looks like the types of books I enjoyed most of all were new adult contemporary romances. And there was even one series where all three books ended up on my favorites list- the finding fate series by Chelsea Fine.

As for the Adult books, I really enjoyed Urban Fantasies and with Young Adult, I think there are a good variety of genres represented. I liked a little something of everything.

    Whoa, you finished over 240 books?!?! That’s really cool!!! ^^ My favorite book that I read in 2014 was Scarlet by Marissa Meyer and The Rule of Thoughts by James Dashner!

      I am so happy that I “met” you this year Ali! It is always exciting to meet new bookish people that like the same kinds of books as me. I have added a lot of books to my TBR from your blog as well. It is one of my favorites 🙂

  2. Eva @ All Books Considered

    I just made both of my lists — Mud Vein topped my adult list and Blue Lily, Lily Blue topped my YA/NA list — I keep seeing the Hook Up on everyone’s lists so I really need to read that one!!

    Lots of new ones to me on this list so thank you for that!!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I am off to check out your blog because I don’t think I have been before! I really need to read mud vein, I have heard great things about it.

      Thanks for stopping by and happy new year!

    Some of my favourites where Isla and the happily ever after, Book Of Life by Deborah Harkness and loads more. It was a good reading year!

    I read Sea of Tranquility last year too, and holy crap, that was GOOD! Kiss the Sky made my list too … hell all the books in the Addicted series did. Well, the ones published in 2014, anyway. So many other books I need to read.

    Happy New Year, Michelle!

      I know, the rest of the books in addicted series are on my 2015 must be read list. (along with too many other books) I hope your holidays were great christy! Happy New Year 🙂
