Year of reading 2014 part 1

This is the exciting time to post my stats about my

Year of reading 2014
Part 1

This year, there will be 3 parts:

  1. my favorites, with my usual categories, see here below
  2. my stats
  3. my fun lists

So drum roll, here are my favorites!
This has been awfully difficult to choose: I have read so many amazing books this year. For instance, in the category Print – fiction, I hesitated between 4 books, and in the category print-historical fiction, between 10!
My final choice is based both on the quality of the book and also on how it resonated with me and my own experience.

  1. Lovely choices all. I quite agree on “A Star for Mrs. Blake” ‘s beautiful cover–my favorite–and “100 Places in France” for nonfiction. If I had read more of your choices I would likely have even more to mention! Even so, I am grateful for the many new books and new connections I’ve found through both your blogs this year.

  5. I bought Mr. Penumbra’s Bookstore last year, and I still haven’t read it! But, seeing it on your list is the second time I saw it this week. The first was in Penguin’s recommended list for those suffering of heartbreak. That wasn’t the reason I bought it, though. I loved that it was for bibliophiles. Like us. Great list, especially the ones pertaining to France!
