    Oh, I think my top book of the year might be Laurie Halse Anderson’s THE IMPOSSIBLE KNIFE OF MEMORY. From your list, I’d pick either WHATEVER LIFE THROWS AT YOU or ALTHEA & OLIVER. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Breenah

    My top books this year were A Little Bit Wicked by Kristin Chenoweth, Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik, and all the YA sci-fi/supernatural stuff I read (Divergent, Bloodlines, etc). And if I won, I’d love to get a copy of Whatever Life Throws at You or Althea & Oliver (which I JUST added to my list, so thank you!).

    Ahh my best of 2014? Because I can’t pick just one: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, Left Drowning by Jessica Park (I’ve read it 3 times this year), Flat-Out Celeste by Jessica Park, Finally, Forever by Katie Kacvinsky, and This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready.

    If I win this giveaway, I would pick Althea and Oliver. I haven’t heard a lot about it, but after seeing it here and checking it out on goodreads, it sounds like a book I would love (and I already have the other 4 featured!)

    There are so many!! (In no particular order)

    We Were Liars by E. Lockhart — I read this in June and it’s still on my mind. It’s on many Best of 2014 lists for a reason!! This review by says it best, “A rich, stunning summer mystery with a sharp twist that will leave you dying to talk about the book with a pal or ten.”

    On the Fence by Kasie West — Loved this book. Four words: older brother’s best friend!

    The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith — This book left me with the biggest “just finished a good book” high this year.

    What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick — Love her and can’t wait for her next book.

    Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins — This definitely was a happy ending for the Anna and the French Kiss Series.

    I’d love to read Whatever Life Throws at You! I love baseball stories.
