2014 Books of the YEAR!

The More you Read

2014 flew by! I was just reviewing the best books of the year and it seemed like I just read them yesterday!

I was checking the stats for this blog and it looks like the most read post was last year’s Top 25 so I have decided to make a “Best Books of the Year” page so it’s easy to find.
