I wanted to make a ‘Top’ list for the books I finished in 2014, though I wasn’t sure what the number would be. I started by just going back over my spreadsheet with all the books I’ve read and picked out all my very favorites, not including any books that were re-reads. I ended up with 14 and decided to just go with that! Here are my picks, arranged (loosely) by genre.
Mambo in Chinatown by Jean Kwok
Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer
The Golem and the Jinni by Helen Wecker
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan
Night Film by Marisha Pessl
Saga (vols 1-3) by Brian K. Vaughan
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
Horns by Joe Hill
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
Dark Eden by Chris Beckett
The Martian by Andy Weir
Bossypants by Tina Fey
What were your favorites of 2014? Do you agree with any of my picks?
