So, a while back I promised that I would share with you all the best and the worst of the books I’ve read in 2014. And, true to my word, here they are.
Truth be told, I’m not sure if I should start with the best or the worst…

Now, in retrospect, my year in reading wasn’t as bad as I thought. I truthfully felt like there was more bad than good, but looking at it now, it’s about even if you include the 3 star books (which I do since I was unimpressed by them).
Well, fingers crossed, 2015 will be better.
