2014 family favorite books

We are big readers in our house.  Always have been.  Being the daughter of a elementary school librarian and an English major, it goes goes with the territory.  Normally each Christmas I write a newsletter and have everyone put down their favorite book for the year.  I did a different type of Christmas card this which didn't work with a newsletter, so I never got those favorite books recorded.  A dear friend wrote me and asked me what our favorites were since she is a book lover and says she always looks forward to seeing what we read, so in honor of her I asked everyone what their favorte books where this past year and am recording them here.  I am going to list my 2014 reading list next week, but until then, here is a look at my family's favorites. . .

Ben—Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive book 2 Words of Radiance  ***be warned, these are huge, huge books, but Ben loves them.  He insists I put them on my to-read list for 2015
