Favorite Reads of 2014

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)
