Since discovering the world of indie authors and self-published novels, I have made a point of trying to include plenty of these books in my reading. I also just this year discovered the existence of websites that advertise when eBooks are on sale for free. As a result, I have read a TON more books than usual this year, more than doubling my total count from last year! (Keeping track is easy thanks to Goodreads and its annual reading challenge). I have read 50 books so far this year, with a few more weeks to go.
Out of those 50 books, here are some of my favorites of the lot. (Note that, although these are books I read in 2014, a few were actually published in previous years)
TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED NOVELS
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester – how did I never hear of this classic before?!
Euphoria by Lily King
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
SELF-PUBLISHED NOVELS/INDIE AUTHORS
The Touchstone Trilogy by Andrea K Host

So tell me – what were your favorite reads from 2014?
