2014 End of Year Survey: Part 1.

2014 End of Year Survey is hosted by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner.

I found out about this survey too late last time that it was this year so I've been waiting for it to pop up this year. There are so many questions and I love including covers so  I'm splitting it up into sections.

Part One: Best in Books I
Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
I love Lauren Barnholdt and while The Thing About The Truth was good it just wasn''t as good as I'd expected!
Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read in 2014? 
Vain  was so much more than I expected it was unexpectedly humbling, informative and entertaining!
Best series you started in 2014?
 I picked up Shadow and Bone on a whim and had to nip out on holiday to get Siege! Such an unique and interesting series!
Best Sequel of 2014?
I was initially unsure about a sequel to Nantucket Blue but Nantucket Red really adds depth to the characters and the series!
Best Series Ender of 2014?
 Addicted After All was a fantastic end to Loren and Lily's story it emphasised how much they'd recovered and matured plus they were babies!
Into the Still Blue ended one of my favourite dystopian series and I loved it!
Favourite new author you discovered in 2014?

Ellen Renner's Tribute is a beautifully written medieval style fantasy and I'm looking forward to more from her.
Sarina Bowen writes New Adult with extra depth and the 'drama/trauma' facing her lead characters is consistently a new to me plot!
Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2014?
Torn Away is an emotional and refreshing book that asks the questions what happens after the 'worst '? It really made me think about the aftermath of these disasters.
Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2014 to finally read? 
 My Life Next Door was on my TBR list for two years! I should of picked it up back in 2012, such a perfect summer book!
Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2014?
“I've always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school. Firsts are best because they are beginnings.” Jenny Han, To All the Boys I've Loved Before
Lara Jean has a point beginnings are the best!
Happy New Year!
Much Love!
