Top It Off: Top Books of 2014

Okay. This is what everybody has already done and like, always I am late to the party of course! 😀 For this, wonderful year, I am just gonna list a combination of all the genres that I usually read, because I am new to book blogging (Plus, I usually don’t keep track of the books I have read :D).

Understandably, most of the books in the list are quite popular, but there are a few that you might not have read, and I would like to think that my thoughts on them would whet your interest enough to give them a try! Also, this year has been full of books. I had gotten a tablet, so a whole new world of eBooks opened up for me, which led to late night readings and/or known a binge marathon reads! My one resolution of 2014 (I will post about it later and link it here!) led me to chronicle what and when I read it.

So choosing only 10 favourite books is a blasphemy that I have to commit to make it easier for you all (Love me for this!) So, I reneged and added some series to my list as well, which if you count would definitely not be 10 books in total (I am wily, that way! :P) but these are the books that I have actually enjoyed and would definitely re – read again. Hence, the title – Top Books of 2014 🙂

The books/series in this list are not in any order or preference.

Gwyneth Shepherd’s sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon–the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.
