Feature & Follow #3

Happy Friday, fellow book lovers! Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The goal of Feature & Follow is to meet new bloggers, make friends, and gain readers.

This Week's Question: 

What are your favorite books of 2014 so far?

Okay, so... do they have to be books that were published in 2014? Because I might be out of luck there since I've only got one under my belt. Just so I have something to write about, I'm going to post my top three favorite reads from the year, regardless of publication date, from almost-favorite to ohmygodyoumustreadthis! Unfortunately, I've only reviewed one of the three.


Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbot
Published February 7, 2014
Rating: 4/5 (my review)

This book comes in at number 3 because, to be honest, mystery just isn't my thing. That being said, this one kept me on my toes and up late every night! It's a story about a psycho husband and a wife who's had enough. A definite must-read for anyone who's a mystery-lover and, as I've proven, even those who aren't.


Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Published August 3, 2008
Rating: 5/5

Acheron comes in at number two spot on my list. I know I'm a few years behind on this one, but I am SO glad I finally got around to it! I've been reading the Dark Hunter series off and on for years. While they normally consist of a little quick, trashy romance with a Greek mythology tie-in, this one had depth that I was not expecting. My only regret is that the entire story couldn't have been set in Acheron's past. 
The feels were strong with this one. 


The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Published September 20, 2011
Rating: 5/5

This book is number one on my list of favorite reads of the year! I really had such a hard time deciding between this one and Acheron for the number one spot, but in the end, Achilles won out. While I loved Acheron, I don't know that I'd read it again, while this one is going to be on my re-read list for years to come. Everyone knows the story of Achilles, but not like this. This book tells the story of Achilles and Patroclus from childhood to the bitter end. I laughed, I (almost) cried, and I stayed up way past my bedtime. Please, please, pick this one up if you enjoy mythology and sweet, tragic romance.
