Favorite Books for 2014 Reading Groups

The Results Are In!
Reading Group Choices' Annual Favorite Books List

Each year, we ask YOU, our reading groups, what your favorite books were for the year. This year, we had over 2,000 responses, and we narrowed down your list to your top 11 favorites, which we heartily agree with.
Some of these books may not seem like a surprise - yes, of course, this year's Pultizer Prize Winner for fiction made the list, and we thank Anthony Doerr for writing such an amazing book. But your top 11 also includes new authors like Charles Belfoure for The Paris Architect and Gabrielle Zevin for The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. But no matter if it's Jojo Moyes or Gillian Flynn or Christina Baker Kline, what this list shows us, and what your comments told us, is that you enjoy historical books, nonfiction, mystery, intrigue, books that spark interesting discussion, books that are unputdownable, and books that are clever, well-written, and thoughtful.    
We hope to continue to provide you with recommendations such as these from old faithful writers to fresh talents for many many years to come. Thank you for reading, thinking, and discussing, and we wish you many more happy reading group discussions to come!
