Welcome to another edition of Bookish Saturdays. I had originally planned to do this feature every week, but time got away from me.
Today I am going to share my Top Ten Favorite Reads of 2014.
It was surprisingly challenging to pick a top ten. Every month, I shared one or two favorites, and more often than not, I ended up choosing two, which means I had to cull the list further for my Top Ten.
Amazingly, this means that I found a plethora of books to love this year, so if you want to see ALL my favorites, click over to my Favorites page.
Click the links to see my reviews: (Listed by month in which I read them).

My Favorites List included some “old favorite” authors, like Sarah Jio, Diane Chamberlain, Heather Gudenkauf, Nicci Gerrard, and Liane Moriarty (a relatively new favorite); but some new “favorites” have shown up, so there will be more reading from them: Randy Susan Meyers, Brian Morton, Paula Daly, Matthew Thomas, and Emma Healey.
Did you read any of these? What were your favorites this year?
