Patti’s Favorite Reads of 2014

Patti’s Favorite Reads of 2014 Hey all!  Patti here – I can’t believe it’s almost 2015 already!  I thought about the books I read this year and made a list of my favorites.  Not all of them were published in 2014 but they are books I read in 2014.  I hope some of them are also your favorites or that you discover a new favorite through my list. My list is a bit eclectic this year – I feel like I mostly read Contemporary books (adult and NA) but most of my favorites this year are Paranormal.   Go figure… I had...
