Good Monday Morning everyone! I’m typing this up quick before my hubby and I leave for a night away. He is using up his vacation time and we thought a night out-of-town sounded fun. I logged on one last time and thought of a quick question I could post for my Monday blog meme: What was your favorite book you read this year? Now I’ve read quite a few books that I loved this year, there are around 40 alone that I gave five stars too, and more than that earned four. There is one book that stands out though. I really loved this title and still get excited when I share/encourage others to read it too. Surprisingly my favorite book this year is not a paranormal. It is written by a first time published author and is a sci-fi thriller that made me laugh and cry and I just could not put it down. My favorite book this year is The Martian by Andy Weir. This is an amazing read and I am not surprised that it is a Goodreads Choice winner for 2014. So, what was your favorite book this year?
