    Your favorite book of 2014

    Advertisements
    What's the best book you read this year?

    For me, it was Andy Weir's The Martian. It was funny and unusual (without being weird) and smart. I was kind of in a reading rut this year and I read a lot of mindless crap, but The Martian was great.

    My favorite new read this year was The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.

    Either Ender's Game or Ender's Shadow. I can't decide which one I like better.

    The point of no return. Is that a duty station?

    As much as I love fiction, most of my readings are non-fiction. I loved Good Life, Good Death by Rimpoche Nawang Gehlek and Dancing with the Midwives: A Memoir of Art and Grief. I read those as part of my independent study. Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore was the last work of fiction I read for a course last term. It was great.

    Gosh, I read a lot of good books this year. Nonfiction would have to be The Devil in Massachusetts, which was about the Salem witch trials. Fiction is between The Help, The Secret Life of Bees, and the Arisen series.

    My reading goes embarrassingly slow these days in the balancing act that is my life, but By Any Means Necessary by William E. Burrows has been my favorite this year. Fascinating, engaging, and funny. Once I knock the end of this one out, I'll swap over fully to Blind Man's Bluff, which has been equally interesting.

    Looking For Alaska or Paper Towns by John Green, I loved them both a lot.

    There are a few books that I consider to be my top reads of 2014, but I think I'll go with Legend by Marie Lu as my favorite. I like a book that grabs my attention from page one and holds it until the last page. There were many books this year that were a struggle to get through.
