2014 Reading Wrap-Up



I can't believe it's time for the 2014 Reading Wrap-Up! So many books this year! And so many of them good! It was so difficult to choose; to narrow it down! But I did, and here are the best and worst reads of 2014! As usual, they are ordered alphabetically by author's last name, because I can't choose which one is better (or worse) than the other. In total, I read 130 books this year. Woot! Woot! I read 5 1-strawberry books, 14 2-strawberry books, 42 3-strawberry books, 52 4-strawberry books, and 17 5-strawberry books. It was a good year.
