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.
