2014 Favorites: Favorite Series and Favorite Book


I wasn't originally going to write about my favorite series but circumstances led to me having to explain my favorite book so I'm unveiling my favorite series here with my favorite book. My favorite series of 2014 was the Shatter Me series.





I've actually gone back to read Shatter Me and parts of the other books after I read the whole series. I love to reread but I haven't wanted to read a series this much and this quickly ever. Not even with Harry Potter - probably because I'd seen the movies fifty million times beforehand but still. I love the romance in this and I love Juliet's growth. It's a really fast and sometimes intense read that I'm sure I will love for years to come.



So I thought I was going to go with a completely different book then the one I chose. I was originally going to pick Shatter Me because I love the series as a whole but then I got to writing about the book below and I realized I loved it on its own. So I made a series category and I've picked my stand alone favorite book of 2014. My favorite book of 2014 was Life is but a Dream.



I wrote a lot about this couple and Alec in particular. The thing about this book is that it addresses mental health and a wonderful, supportive relationship. Alec explodes on people while Sabrina sees things she shouldn't. They are both in a mental health facility to get help but they both don't believe they need it. They fall impossibly in love with each other. Alec protects her and loves Sabrina for who she is. Sabrina feels safe and normal around Alec like what people are saying about her isn't true. Their love for each other is beautiful especially in the defining climax at the end of the story. This is such a wonderful book about realistic problems and realistic people.

  1. I love all the covers and truly meant to read Shatter Me. Apparently I need to get off my butt and get busy :-)

    Hope next year is even better for you. :-)

  3. I had no idea there were so many books in the Shatter Me series. I haven't read any of them, but I know you really love the series, so I'm adding them to my library list so I can read them.

    Happy New Year!

    1. It's a pretty old book - well not really only two or three - it's been on my wishlist for a while and I was so happy when I got to read it from the library (:
