Now, on to my picks! (For reference, here's a list of the 2014 releases I read.)
So, I definitely reached my dystopian burnout point. I didn't read anything I would consider dystopian this year. Not a single book! So, no favorite dystopian for me this year. Womp womp.
Favorite Science Fiction
Sci-fi isn't always my thing...but adorable alien romance totally is!
The conclusion of this trilogy was about as fantasy as I get, but I absolutely loved it.
Jandy Nelson's writing is perfect.
You know a book about a teen girl grifter is going to have some edge-of-your-seat action.
Favorite Historical Fiction
Ok, I admit that labeling a book about a steampunk version of Arthurian legend historical fiction is a bit of a stretch. But it takes place in the past. And England is a real place. And it's fiction. And I loved this book. So this is where I'm putting it.
I always consider rom-coms in the comedy category. And, honestly, the first few chapters of this book literally made me LOL.
I loved being lost in Cadence's head and trying to figure out what happened to her as she did.
This book has a lot more going on than romance (true friendship and self-discovery FTW!), but I have to admit that this romance is one of my absolute favorites ever!
Lots of sorcery happening in this final book in the trilogy. (Also lots of Kami and Jared.)
Favorite Genre Bender
This series defies all classification and I absolutely love it.
Come back tomorrow for the popularity contest, highlighting all of those awesome 2014 characters.
