2014 was a GREAT year of reading for me! I read so many wonderful books that they all can’t be included in this list, but I do want to share the books that made the top of my list. These are books that I read in 2014, not necessarily when they were published.
My favorite full length novels of 2014:
A Love for Larkspur by Kelsey Kilgore
-Please write more! Seriously. Please!? I laughed and laughed while reading this book!
Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Rea
-This was a book that when I finished it, I just stopped everything and thought about how I NEED to read more books like this.
Full Steam Ahead by Karen Witemeyer
-This book is historical romance at its best with a good dose of humor to make this a prime example of what Christian fiction should be!
In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin
-I became obsessed with WWII fiction after this series, and especially this book!
-*Sigh* I just like to sigh and dream when I think about this book. I wish Becky Wade would write my own romance story.
No One to Trust by Lynette Eason
-Lynette Eason was a new-to-me author this year and is now one of my favorites. I can’t wait to read the rest of her books!
Silenced by Dani Petrey
-Action, romance, suspense and breathtaking settings… What is not to love?
Slave Again by Alana Terry
-The message and cause behind this story is awesome and the book itself is hard to put down.
The Bound Heart by Dawn Crandall
-I fell in love with the main character, Lawry, in this book. I don’t understand why I have not met my man like this yet. 😉
The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson
-I am a cat lover and this was just a fun, comical shorter Christmas read that I loved.
Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock
-Gripping suspense with a great message.
Wish You Were Here by Beth K. Vogt
-Ms. Vogt is now one of my favorite authors. I wish I was there…
With Every Breath by Elizabeth Camden
-I sat in shock with my mouth hanging open as my heart broke for these main characters at one point. If you make me feel like that while reading, I love your writing.
-This is a YA book and while I am not a young adult, I loved this book. It was a book that I was supposed to be reading when I was and God put it in my life for a purpose. When a book touches your heart like that, you can’t help but love it.
My favorite novellas of 2014:
For Mercies Sake by Sharon Srock
-This story touched my heart in a way that very few novellas can.
Sheriff Bride Rob’s Story by Joi Copeland
-This is such a fun, laugh-out-loud marriage of convenience story!

You Made Me Love You by Beth K Vogt
