1. Best Book You Read In 2014?
Just One Year was really good. Girl of Nightmares and A Monster Calls were also great.

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
We Were Liars and Dear Killer. They weren’t /bad/, but I didn’t like them as much as I was hoping I would.

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read in 2014?
I don’t think anything really blew my mind. Dangerous Girls was probably the most surprising, but that’s stretching it.

Not really anything. Boo!

5. Best series you started in 2014? Best Sequel of 2014? Best Series Ender of 2014?
I started Under the Never Sky. I liked it, but I still haven’t read the last book. Oops! I also read the entire Boys Over Flowers manga. I feel like that was a feat. Haha.

I read my first Patrick Ness book this year and it was super good. 😍

Rain by Amanda Sun. I really like this series. More more more!

Dangerous Girls Abigail Haas Dear Killer Katherine Ewell Curtsies & Conspiracies Gail Carriger

11. Most memorable character of 2014?
Honestly, I’m reading Clockwork Princess right now and all I can think about it Jem, Will, and Tessa.

12. Most beautifully written book read in 2014?
Am I the only one that doesn’t pay too much attention to the way things are written? Or at least I don’t store it in my brain forever.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2014?
I don’t know if it was life-changing, but A Monster Calls was just so good.

Mmm, My Life Next Door might be good for this question. It was on my TBR for AGES.

I wasn’t shocked, but I was pretty confused by Dangerous Girls.

Just One Year! And Girl of Nightmares was really good too.

21. Best Book You Read In 2014 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure:
Dangerous Girls, without a doubt. (Oh wait, I just realized it said BEST book and this one really wouldn’t be my choice, but it’s the only one I read because of other people. Oh well.)

22. Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2014?
Oh my god, like all of them. I have found again my love for Will and Jem.

23. Best 2014 debut you read?
I’m not sure I read any debuts. 😱

24. Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year?
I feel like a slacker. I don’t even really pay attention to world building. I’m sure I feel it while I’m reading, but I’m always getting bored when places are being described and everything.

25. Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read?
Hyperbole and a Half!

  1. I thought I would like We Were Liars more too. It’s not that I didn’t like it, but it didn’t feel like an E. Lockhart book. And it was really short and I just didn’t know what to think about that ending at all. Dangerous Girls shocked me as well. I mean holy crazy jaw-dropping ending!!! I loved it. I also can’t wait for Saint Anything (Sarah Dessen!!!!!!!!!!) and Lair of Dreams (how much longer can I stand waiting????). It looks like you had a great 2014 in reading… good luck in 2015 🙂

  2. Great survey, love your pretty book cover picks! And best of luck with all the blogging and reading this year!
