books read in 2014

I've read some pretty good books this year. The ones that stand out to me the most include The Giver series, Wonder, We Were Liars, and all of the Rainbow Rowell books.  Have you read any of those? Do you notice a theme? Here's a big hint: all of my favorite books from this year were written for Young Adults.

I noticed that in the Goodreads Reader's Choice Awards We Were Liars won best book of the year for Young Adults and a Rainbow Rowell book won for Best Fiction so obviously I'm not alone in liking these.

My full list is below but I'd love for you to tell me some good ones to add to my list for 2015.

Here's one Scott, Rachael and I all enjoyed; given to us by my friend Rebecca Alexander:
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.
Good read. He has another book out that Rachael is reading right now - haven't heard what she thinks yet.
