I've started sharing my #BestReads2014 one by one on Twitter and Facebook and will continue to do so all through December. This was a fantastic year for me in terms of reading and I found some little jems, discovered some amazing author and their stories which brought so much emotion, both joy and tears in my life.
I've divided my best reads of the year in twoposts since they are too many for a single one. The books are listed in chronological order of reading them. I read a lot of romance, some m/m, some New Adult, a little bit of fantasy and it's all reflected here. I hope you will find something you like and give it a try in the New Year.
Best books of 2014 Part I
The Emperor's Blades (Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne #1) by Brian Staveley - I loved this first book in a debut epic fantasy series. Gomplex world-building, intriguing plot and great characters, what's not to like. Book 2, The Providence of Fire releases on 13 Jan 2015.
The Chocolate Temptation (Amour et Chocolat #6) by Laura Florand. I find this series just delicious and Patrick and Sarah's story was no exception. Emotioanlly intense and beautifully written.
Move the Sun and Behold the Stars (Signal Bend #1 and #2) by Susan Fanetti. This is a great biker romance (both books deal with the same couple) which stands out with its strong heroine and powerful writing.
It Happened One Wedding (FBI / US Attorney #5) by Julie James. Another favourite series of contemporary romances this time involving lawyers and FBI agents.
The Kraken King (Iron Seas #4) by Meljean Brook - My first steampunk romance and I loved everything about it - the action/adventure, the world building, the amazing characters and their romance
Between the Sheets (Boys of Bishop #3) by Molly O'Keefe - A surprise small-town romance by a new-to-author which was raw and gritty and emotional and all-around fantastcic
Complicated creatures (Part 1) by Alexis Lawless - This intense romantic suspense with strong characters was another woderful surprise and I can recommend to anyone
