I wish I had more categories to add here, but I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I should probably create another list of books published in 2014 that I wanted to read, but didn’t.
If you read any off of this list, start with Claudia Rankine’s book. So good.
P.S. In the weirdest audiobook category, Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk wins hands down.
