I love to talk about my favourite books, which is why I am so happy to have a job that allows me to do exactly that every day. However, because of this, you probably know which books I would include on my own Best Books of 2014 list (and that The Girl Who Was Saturday Night and The Queen of the Tearling would be at the very top). My reading habits—though I try to be as diverse as possible—do not do justice the variety of amazing and thought-provoking books that have been published this year; it’s hard to believe we’re only halfway through! So get your 50 Book Pledge To Be Read shelves ready, because below you’ll find what publishing professionals, book bloggers and Savvy Readers consider the best book they’ve read so far this year.
(But, yes, okay, I did include a new addition to my list of favourites at the bottom… I couldn’t help myself!)
