I can’t really name a favorite book of the year, but I will say there are books that have stayed with me, that have left me with more thoughts and questions than answers. I love a book that leaves me wanting more, not wanting to start another book because I just want to keep thinking of the characters and story I’ve just finished.
So here they are, in no particular order, links take you to my reviews.
The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro
The Pieces We Keep by Kristina McMorris (review to come)
There are a few others, that I gave high reviews, but I’m not sure I’d say the stories stayed with me….long term. There is also one more, that publishes in 2014 that I LOVED, and yet I haven’t reviewed.
For those who are interested in statistics, I read 73 books in 2013, more than the year before. Thirteen were audio books, I think this is less than 2012, but I spent less time in the car, and I’ve yet to find my perfect groove to listening at home. Twelve of the books above, my favorites, are from authors I hadn’t read before. I continue to discover more historical fiction I enjoy and I see my passion for psychological thrillers returning.
Here’s to more great books in 2014!!
