I’m going to have to second Julie’s thoughts on this week’s question; it’s only March and I already have more than one favorite book of 2014. How is that even possible? LOL To help narrow it down, I’m only going to consider novels that were actually released this year, and then further break them down by genre because yeah, I still can’t pick just one.
If I absolutely HAD to decide, my first choice would be Anne Bishop’s MURDER OF CROWS. Words can not express how infatuated I am with this series. AND, it falls on the Fantasy side of the paranormal genre which means… I still have two more categories to select favorites from. 😉
The second spot belongs to BITTER SPIRITS by Jenn Bennett. I’ve been in love with her ARCADIA BELL series for several years now, and was excited to discover that her new Paranormal Romance books are just as good. There’s another installment due out later this year though, so there’s a chance that it might not stay there for long, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!
As for the Urban Fantasy side of things, I’m torn between Jeaniene Frost’s UP FROM THE GRAVE, and Patricia Briggs’ NIGHT BROKEN. They are both strong installments, but neither of them wowed me to the point that MURDER OF CROWS did which can somewhat be considered to be UF as well…
And, if you ask me this question again in another three months I’m sure my answer will be completely different. LOL Well, except for Bishop’s book, I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up being my top read of 2014. But again, it’s only March, so I don’t want to get too ahead of myself.
