Reading Retrospective 2014

Well, apparently 2014 wasn’t a particular strong year for reading total; to say the least, it was a crazy busy year with major changes and new beginnings. Without realizing it though, it seemed the year of M/M novels, with 32 books falling within that genre; over half of my total books read. My greatest find was Westwind by Ian Rankin, making me squee not only because it was a rare out of print find, but because it officially allowed me to complete all of his novels published at the time. Another semi-happy but semi-sad squee (do those even exist!?) was the penultimate Ty and Zane novel by Abigail Roux; I loved it so much, that I had to read it back-to-back. And then don’t even get me started (or maybe do?) on the first full-length novel for Nick and Kelly; I will forever be an Abigail Roux fan. I read some really weird things; books that actually made me gag and skip sections because it went WAY past my comfort zone (of which I didn’t know that I had one). Of course, there were flops and of course there were amazing reads. As always, take a look at the list. I hope a few peak your interest like they did mine.
