Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Best reads of 2014

Since everyone else is listing their best reads of 2014, I might as well join in!


2014 introduced me to two new series that i will be continuing;






Another time travel really entertained me;



And I read a couple of good Classics that I hadn't read before;



Other books were entertaining, but these are the top reads of the year. What 2015 will bring to my reading list is yet to be seen, but there are a couple more Classics I have my eye on and of course continuations of the two series, plus maybe I'll branch out into some genres I've been neglecting. I don't plan my reading too far ahead so it will all be a surprise for me!
