2014 is almost a third of the way behind us (where does the time go?) so I thought it was time to reflect on the books that have impacted me the most so far this year. Admittedly, I've only read 24 books so far which is well below my average but I had my first baby January 6th so I'm still pretty proud of those 24! I'm also not reading a lot of newly released material because I am devastatingly behind on my TBR pile. It's actually quite ridiculous how many books I own that I haven't read! So I made a deal with myself to use 2014 to try to put a dent in those books and only buy the ones that I simply MUST read (you book addicts know what I'm talking about!). So looking at the year so far, here are the books that I would most recommend to a friend:
Two other books stood out as 'Honorable Mentions' so I'm not going to devote a whole lot of time to talking about them but if you're looking for a great contemporary romance, I'd highly recommend How to Love by Katie Cotugno. More in the mood for a supernatural romance with some mystery mixed in? Check out Forbidden by Syrie James and Ryan M. James.
If there's been a book that you just LOVED this year, please let me know in the comments section! I'm always on the lookout for good recommendations. Happy Reading!
