TTT: Books I Read In 2014

imageToday’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I Read In 2014. For this list I decided not to include re-reads, because I re-read more than 20 ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ books in 2014!

  1. Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton – a Sandra Boynton book I had somehow missed before!?! It’s so adorable I just HAD to buy a copy for my new nephew. 🙂
  2. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Fleming – one of the funniest middle grade books I’ve ever read! I chose it because David Tennant is the narrator, and he does not disappoint. Check back tomorrow for some amusing quotes. 🙂
  3. The Giver by Lois Lowry – my post
  4. Gossamer by Lois Lowry – a dreamy middle grade fantasy. I loved every second of it!
  5. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry – I guess it was a good year to read Lois Lowry!
  6. Abhorsen by Garth Nix – a BIG thank you to my Best Blogging Buddy, Maricel for putting the Abhorsen series on my radar! This dark fantasy is exactly my kind of series!
  7. The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick –my post
  8. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – my post
  9. Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton – my post
  10. The Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems – my post

Don’t forget to check back this Thursday to see which of these I chose for T3 – Best OR Worst Read of 2014 (obviously, I’m doing Best 😉 ).

    THE Ian Fleming? Of James Bond fame?! Speaking of Tennant, did you watch Gracepoint at all? I need someone to discuss it with. ;p

    You’re welcome about Abhorsen. Now I guess it’s my turn to reread it so I can finally justify buying Clariel.

    I can’t wait – I have no clue as to which one you’re choosing. I might disappoint this month with my offering so you’ll have to represent for both of us. No pressure or anything… 😉

      Up, the James Bond Ian Fleming. I only watched 2 episodes of Gracepoint, because I had already watched Broadchurch, and GP was a shot for shot remake. So, I can discuss the plot, but not the actors (except Tennant). 😉

      Just read Clariel. Since you’re already familiar with the world, you’ll be fine.

      Personally, I think I’ve decided that I enjoy T3 too much to quit anytime soon, and I’m going to stop caring if anyone but us links up (not that I won’t be excited if they do). You?

        So did Broadchurch end the same way Gracepoint did? With the dad being the culprit? Did I just spoil it for a while bunch of people? ;p Tennant was great but he really couldn’t keep the American accent going and ended up sounding overly nasal and whiny which kinda turned me off. :/

        Okay, I shall!

        I think we forge on, soldier. Which means we need to scare up another batch of themes for next year, eh?

      I was 11 when Number the Stars was published, which is right in the target age group, so I’m not sure how I missed it! I actually read 8 Lowry books in all this year – the 3 listed, the rest of The Giver Quartet, The Birthday Ball, and a re-read of A Summer to Die (the Lowry I read repeatedly as a kid).
