Best Book of 2014
I read quite a few good ones. I think the best was More Than This by Patrick Ness. I sort of thought I was so over dystopias, but I read this and it was fucking amazing.

Worst Book of 2014
Darkfever by Karen MArie Moning. It's not like I expected great literature, but I was told it was similar to the Sookie Stackhouse books. But it lacked all of their charm and silliness.

Most Disappointing Book of 2014
Landline by Rainbow Rowell. Really her only book I haven't liked.  

Most Surprising (in a good way) Book of 2014
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares. I had little to no espectations for this book and was surprised to find I loved it even more than the original Sisterhood books.

Book You Recommended to People Most in 2014
The Magicians Land by Lev Grossman. But only because I'm always after people to read the Magicians Triology. The third one was the best BY FAR in the series.

Best Series You Discovered in 2014
Scott Pilgrim. I've had the whole series sitting on my shelf for a while. WHY did it take me so long to pick them up? I read all six in a few days time. In fact, the last four were all read in a day with my sick and vomiting three-year old sitting on my lap.

Favourite New Authors You Discovered in 2014
Bryan Lee O'Malley. Not only read Scott Pilgrim, but I also read Seconds.

Most Hilarious Read of 2014
Hyperbole and a Half by Aliie Brosh. My dog is dangerously close to SImple Dog.

Most Thrilling, Unputdownable Book in 2014
AGain, I've got to go with More Than This.

Book You Most Anticipated in 2014
Yes, Please by Amy Poehler. I still haven't read it - I only just got it as a Christmas gift.

Favourite Cover of a Book You Read in 2014
Last Call in the City of Bridges by Salvatore Pane. People think I'm crazy, but I love the Pittsburgh skyline.

Most Memorable Character in 2014
I read a large Deadpool collection. Who can ever forget Deadpool?

Beautifully Written Book in 2014
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. His writing is so reminiscent of John Irving.

Book That Had the Greatest Impact on You in 2014
Honestly, probably the Lumberjanes comic series. It's hard to find comics that feature girls and are FUN. But my husband and my eight year old son read them and we all loved them. It wa the first time all three of us read something and could talk about it.

Book You Can’t Believe You Waited Until 2014 to Finally Read
Scott Pilgrim.
