NEWTTTThis Week:  Top Books of 2014SHININGSTARS1

All Adult, are we surprised? This year was a HUGE adult fiction year for me and I LOVED it so much!  On this list alone we have two Historical Novels!  I Shall Be Near to You and Necessary Lies.  They are amongst my favorite novels, ever.  I adored Erin’s writing in I Shall, and Diane’s storytelling and plotline weaving in Necessary Lies was simply outstanding.  One Plus One by JoJo Moyes shouldn’t shock ANYONE.  It is beautiful, and it brings together people from all walks of life, which is why I love it so very much.  The Girl Who Chased the Moon is SO different from anything I’ve read before.  Lost Lake was close to making this list, but I decided I truly enjoyed this one a SMIDGE more.  The magical realism, and family secrets drew me in and didn’t release me til the very last page!  Finally, Shotgun Lovesongs was Nickolas Butler’s debut.  I JUST read it and simply fell in love.  Male friendship is so rare to find in a novel, and this was done perfectly.  I will be picking up WHATEVER he puts out next!
