What are your favorite books of 2014?

Kate and I will be posting our lists for our favorite books we read this year soon but before we do, we want to hear some your favorite books.  So, what did you read this year that you loved so much, you had to tell all your friends? What books did you give 5 stars on Goodreads? What books did read again, right after you just finished reading it the first time? I can’t be the only one who does that.

Post your favorite books in the comment. Don’t be shy.

What I’m Thankful for

So, it’s Thanksgiving.  The one day to gorge on food, watch football and share what we are thankful for. So here’s my literary Thanksgiving list (in no particular order)

I’m thankful for Maggie Stievfater for she is amazing.  Not only is she an unbelievable talented author but she she is also a muscian, artist, goat herder and crazy driver.  To say that I love her would be an understatment.  I love her.  She gave me one of my favorite Book boyfriend, James (from Lament and Ballet).  Her latest series the Raven Cycle, only gets better and eagarly (and dread) the final book, coming next year.

I am thankful for Percy Jackson.  You sarcastic, sassy demigod you.  I hope that after everything that he and his fellow demigods went through that he will get a chance to have a normal life and go to college and live happily ever after with Annabeth.

I’m thankful for Westeros. It’s such a messed up place made up of messed up people. I love it.  I’m still not caught up but since I have a good year before book six to come out and until April for the new season, I’m in no rush to finish.  I’ve got to make it last as long as I can.

I’m thankful for Maureen Johnson’s twitter.  Yes, I do love The Name of the Star and the Madness Underneath but really, her on twitter just makes me happy.  Is she insane or do just eccentric?  Whatever, she’s entertaining.

And I’m thankful for all my friends and family who keep recommending such great books.  I’ll never have enough time to read them all.  sigh.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  What are you thankful for?
