Although we love talking about our favorite books we have read, it is never an easy task to narrow them down to some arbitrary number. As I looked back at my list of books I have read in 2014, and there were over 200, narrowing that list down to my favorites was no easy feat. There were so many great books that were released this year and some released in the past that I just got around to reading this year…new authors making their mark and some of my favorite authors showing me why they continue to stay at the top of my list. But reading a book is very personal. What I find I like or love might be another person’s DNF or 2 star, but it is also what makes reading so unique to each individual. The following books or series are what struck a chord with me in some way this year. They brought out an emotion in me whether it be love, hate, sadness or happiness and have stayed with me long after I turned off my kindle. There are so many books that my fellow Gossip Girls read that I am dying to read as well, but honestly we try to spread out all the amazing authors and their books between us so at least one of us can represent them. I mean at the end of the day we can only read so many books, so be sure and read each of their lists too. I am looking forward to what 2015 has in store for some of my favorite current authors and meeting some new ones too….
Happy New Year! Xoxo, Nina

I am going to start off my list with 3 authors that if you haven’t read, I encourage you to pick up something by them.
