Favourites for the year though?! Funnily last year it was obvious to me who the contenders were, and for the year before, but this year.....? Let me think.
If I'm being totally honest here, I don't think there was any one particular title that did it for me this year but there were authors who did instead.
This year I discovered the works of Rachel Joyce which I loved, both in Harold Fry and Queenie Hennessy. I've got Perfect lined up ready to read in 2015.
And finally, an author I discovered at the end of 2013 but read a few more of in 2014 and hope to continue doing so in 2015 is Neil Gaiman - The Ocean at the end of the Lane is still a most fantastic read.
Next year I intend to try to read and blog just as much. I want to try and add one non-fiction to the blog once a month if I can as I have lots here to read. I think the fact that they take me a little longer to finish means that I usually choose a fictional title instead, but I'm determined to try to hold this resolution of sorts down. I've already read January's non-fiction title and it's a weepy - can't say more than that, it's embargoed folks.
There's lots of lovely titles to look forward to next year - I've already read a couple of fab crime titles that come out in January, and there's a new Kate Atkinson to come - holding out in hope that it might swing by my way. I also bought myself The Miniaturist as it's created such a storm I had to find out why!
Whilst 2014 marks a year in the life of Miss Chapter, I was reminded earlier this year that I have infact been reviewing books (albeit for other people) for about 7 years now which is quite an achievement I think. I'd forgotten how long it has actually been. Thanks to all the publishers who have graciously sent me titles this year, and who will, I hope, continue to do so next year too. And a huge thank you to all of the authors who kindly took part In Conversation With too.
Happy New Year, and do tell, what are you looking forward to reading in 2015?
