What I read in 2014


I my reading this year had a theme it was "haunted". I feel like so many of the books I read this year will haunt me for a while, specifically Beautiful Darkness, The Bone Clocks, Station Eleven, The Remains of the Day, The Brontës, & We. Some other stand outs were Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio, The Guest Cat, The Westing Game, & number9dream.
This year I discovered David Mitchell, who for some reason I'd had no interest in before, but who's books I quickly became obsessed with & love.
