So I know it’s already nearly 2 weeks into 2014 but back before the New Year ended I asked on my Facebook page what books were my readers favorites of the year. Getting lost in a book has always been one of my favorite things to do and something I’m hoping to do more of this year. Here are the best books of 2014 according to the Wine in Mom Community.
My friend Shell puts together this awesome list of Keepers and Stinkers every year, and there are a lot of great books on her list.
As for me I fell short of my reading goals in 2014 but the books that I did read really resonated with me. Here are three of my favorites and instead of giving you a summary I’m giving you a quote from the book, like a little teaser.
“But clearly life took people and shook them around until finally they were unrecognizable even to those who had once known them well. Still, there was power in having known someone.”
“Excruciating and wonderful it feels good to want something that bad. I thought about him the way you think about dinner when you haven’t eaten for a day and a half. like you’d sell your soul for it”
Honorable Mention goes to The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel
, because while I didn’t love this book it really stuck with me and contained one of my favorite quotes.
