Best of 2014 Book Giveaway!


So a couple of weeks ago I ran the Getting To Know You (me) giveaway and I displayed all my 5-star reads of the year so far. You got the option to choose one and the winner chose The Winner’s Curse! In fact, The Winner’s Curse would have many people’s choice going by the comments on that post.

SO! What does that mean for THIS giveaway? You get another chance to win THE WINNER’S CURSE, that’s what!! Check out my Top Ten Reasons To Get The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski Today post to see just how much I LOVED that book and to convince you to enter this giveaway. :)

    It would be a tie. I had two favorite series this year (I’m cheating, I know :P). I loved Megan Whalen Turner’s The Queen’s Thief series as well as Lindsay Buroker’s The Emperor’s Edge series.

    My top books this year were A Little Bit Wicked by Kristin Chenoweth, Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik, and all the YA sci-fi/supernatural stuff I read (Divergent, Bloodlines, etc).

    Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Favorite read…favorite read…oh gosh! It gets to the point where I’ve already read sooo much this year that I can’t recall what’s been one of my most faves! Just scrolled through my GR challenge (and found 2 books on it twice! thankfully I already completed said challenge!)

    Looking back I would say Briar Rose by Jana Oliver (one of my first reads for 2014) was one of my faves!! It was just soooo awesome! An amazing retelling/reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale! I LOVED it!!

    A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray was also really good!! There were too many to choose from really!

    I really enjoyed the book My Thinning Years! It was a memoir and it really had me turning pages! I enjoyed it and recommend to others that want to help youth that are having a difficult home life due to being LGBT. I also feel that it can help open minds of teachers that are on the look out for depression and eating disorders in their classrooms.

    There are so many!! (In no particular order)

    We Were Liars by E. Lockhart — I read this in June and it’s still on my mind. It’s on many Best of 2014 lists for a reason!! This review by says it best, “A rich, stunning summer mystery with a sharp twist that will leave you dying to talk about the book with a pal or ten.”

    On the Fence by Kasie West — Loved this book. Four words: older brother’s best friend!

    The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith — This book left me with the biggest “just finished a good book” high this year.

    What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick — Love her and can’t wait for her next book.

    Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins — This definitely was a happy ending for the Anna and the French Kiss Series.

    My favorite reads of 2014 would have to be Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. I’m not even done with A Game of Thrones yet but I can tell it’s already going to be a favorite! I also really enjoyed Anna Bank’s Of Poseidon trilogy, it was so good!
