Year in Review: Favorite Reads of 2014

Year in Review: Pretty Covers

Year in Review: Series

I have over 260 books in the year of 2013! I’m extremely proud of myself considering last year I only read 86. But I digress.  Today is the last day of 2013 and I wanted (like so many others) to take the time and reflect and break down my loves and love nots.

 Love

I loved the imagery, the  suspense and the realistic characters of these books.  Yes, there are two maybe three missing from this list but these are the ones that immediately came to mind when I sat down and began to write.

Each of these authors created stories from old stories or themes and created something new.  It showed passion, fire and love. These are series are highly recommended.

Love Not

I hate the fact that these series made the list because they had so much potential. But the biggest flaw to all of these books was characters. These characters were either selfish, bratty, and/or boring.

But this wasn’t the only issue with these books. The stories were undeveloped, lacked personality, and flare. They were a struggle to get through and showed no hope for the second book or third book.

BEWARE! the pretty titles and covers.

Love, Tanya
