Books and Baubles...the end of 2014!


Hello Everyone, it is that time of the year again, where the rushing of getting Christmas presents, getting up decorations and seeing the people that you love. Today I am packing to go to stay with my family and I can't wait. In theory I will be back before the New Year but I probably won't post until after 2015 has begun!

It certainly doesn't feel like the end of the year that's for sure. This year has gone far to quickly for me but it has been the best year of my life. Everything has just fallen into place nicely and I don't think I've ever been this happy... what with life, work and blog, it's just been perfect.



I've met some awesome people this year, not to mention meeting Sarah Alderson and to met fellow bloggers that I've admired their blogs for so long. As well as some lovely blogger friends, like Pili, Glass and Tanja. I've also had my blog reviewed/praised on the publisher's website for Holly Bourne's brilliant,  The Manifesto on How to be Interesting and I've just, JUST discovered, after having the books for 6 months, that I'm mentioned in for The Forever of Ella and Micha, and The Temptation of Lila and Ethan inside and in the cover for my review of The Secret of Ella and Micha!                    
As it is drawing to the end of the year I thought I would do my top ten books of 2014.... 




I don't think I can number them because that would be impossible. But these have no doubt been my favourites...some debut authors, some personal favorites from last year, some recent discoveries, and some inspiring authors! 


So I guess this will be my last post of 2014... I want to wish a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all and I can't wait to see what 2015 has to bring to all of us...

  1. I am so happy that I got to meet you, Emma. I love our chats and buddy reads.
    I'm looking forward to all we are going to do in our group in 2015 and I hope that we'll talk for many years that are about to come. (I'd hug you now if I could. Consider yourself hugged.)
    Merry Christmas, Emma! :)
