TOP TEN ADULT BOOKS OF 2014!




What can I say?  Tarryn Fisher tops my list AGAIN, for the third year in a row.  And there's a reason why:  no one writes like she does.  No one messes with your mind, heart, and life like she does when you are reading one of her books.

2. The King's Men (All for the Game #3) by Nora Sakavic




In a close second to Mud Vein (which should tell you just how amazing this series is . . . ) is the final book in the All For The Game series by Nora Sakavic.  I've never read anything like this series and the final book was absolutely incredible -- so intense!!

3.  Night Owl (Night Owl #1) and Last Light (Night Owl #2) by M. Pierce



There is as much mystery in these books as there is in the author of these books.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  My review of Last Light HERE.

4.  How to Kill a Rock Star and God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo



So I generally ONLY include books released in the year but I have to include these two books by Tiffanie DeBartolo because they are AMAZING and were new to me this year.  I wish she would write again!!

5.  53 Letters for My Lover by Leylah Attar



Thank you, thank you to MEGAN for introducing me to this book!  A beautiful, complicated and long standing love, similar in some ways to The Opportunist.

6. Goodnight June by Sarah Jio



Unbelievable that this was my first Sarah Jio book, and I now completely understand the hype surrounding her.  

7. Off the Record (Record #1) by K.A. Linde  
I rarely enjoy anything more than a well written political romance (like Mary Whitney!) so this series was right up my alley -- the first book is the best!

8. Lizzy and Jane by Katherine Reay



The sophomore novel from Katherine Reay was a bit darker (to me) than her first book but still just as enchanting.  I love her descriptions.

9. No Ordinary Bloke by Mary Whitney



Another author that always seems to make my list!  My review HERE.  She also released an AMAZING winter novella, Until January, which I highly recommend!!

10. The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham 


Loved the first book in this VM series -- picks up right where the movie ended.  I actually just finished book two and it was even better than the first!!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
