I probably should widen my reading horizons although reading The Chronicles of St Mary's this year with a couple published I'd say that was the best of those very very few books that were published this year. I'll see about reading more in 2015.

From that list I've only read We Were Liars and it was just okay, nothing amazing

Red Rising by Pierce Brown is the best I've read this year. Followed by Words of Radiance (Brandon Sanderson) and The Emperor's Blades (Brian Staveley).

Out of ones I've read this year... The End of Your Life Book Club, Fangirl and To All The Boys I've Loved Before. I agree with above post that We Were Liars wasn't great.

Although not published this year, Rolf Dobellis 'Art of thinking clearly' has really helped me gain a clear mind and rational approach to things such as exams...nicely split into 2/3 page sections. An amazingly easy read whilst being deep and thought provoking. Deffinitley worth it!

It's a tough one. I read quite a few good books in 2014. I'll nominate Sycamore Row by John Grisham, though. Grisham's work had been slipping for a while (in my opinion), but he was definitely back on form for this novel.

I'll go for We Are Liars - but I can't see the list, so I'm only going by books that others have mentioned... Little confused :confused:

I loved We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. My best friend is raving about The Narrow Road to the Deep North but I haven't read it yet.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (Beautiful book and it's interesting to read things from another culture's point of view :yep: )

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

So many others as well but haven't done much reading since I started uni unfortunately. If it's for books actually published in 2014 then forget about the first one lol

Assuming we need books published in 2014

What If? By Randall Monroe .... Fun Q&A book to dip into

As you wish: inconceivable tales from the making of The Princess Bride by Carey Elwes ... If you loved the book or the film you will adore this

Still Alice - absolutely incredible book, really makes you think. A bit of a depressing book though, not a good one for a light-hearted read!

Such a hard one! I would have to say American Psycho by Bret Easton, Incidents in the Life of A Slave Girl by Harriet A. Jacobs! Such traffic novels of a failed society right from the 18th century to the 20th century!

I'm assuming it has to have been published this year, so I'll go A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger, or The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary Mantel.
If not, then the Harry Potter books (in the order: OotP, HBP, DH, GoF, PoA, CoS, PS) because, let's be honest, they can never be beaten.
