Here goes. I dedicated one list to only fantasy, since I read so many awesome ones in 2014; and then I have a list of other good reads of various genres.
Golden Daughter by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
*Sigh* This is probably the most amazing Tales of Goldstone Wood yet. A masterpiece, :) Fantasy with a fae and enchanting twist at its best! Read my full review HERE.
The King's Scrolls by Jaye L. Knight
An epic continuation of the Ilyon Chronicles. Prepare to have your heart torn out a few times... but end up absolutely thrilled! I beta read this one, and am at the present reading it through again! I will review it after I've finished.
Aire by Lena Goldfinch
Breathlessly beautiful. This book was one amazing adventurous, romantic tale. I love the subtle fantasy and Christian allegory. Read my full review HERE.
The Ryn by Serena Chase
A fairytale/fantasy to adore. I have been enjoying this series so much, and can't wait to read about the dashing pirate, Cazian, next! ;) :) Read my full review HERE.
Hebbros by Nicole Sager
A really grand, non-magic fantasy. Along the lines of Jaye L. Knight's Ilyon Chronicles. I loved this novel, and am excited to read more by Nicole Sager. Read my full review HERE.
Season of Wonder by Lisa Tawn Bergren
This is dystopian/fantasy at its best. I loved this book, and am just so dying to continue the adventure!! :) Really, if you're longing for a dystopian with a Christian aspect, pick up the Remnants series! Read my full review HERE.
Resistance by Jaye L. Knight
I mentioned its sequel above... Ilyon Chronicles is just not to be missed. Awesome fantasy adventure... exploring deep issues and situations. And not to mention, there's an incredibly sweet relationship story, :) :) Read my full review HERE.
Rise of the Dibor by Christopher Hopper
This was an unusual, but altogether inspiring tale. A thought-provoking strain of fantasy. Caution... quite the violence at points (especially in the second book), but I'm excited to read the last book of The White Lion Chronicles! Read my full review HERE.
Trust by Molly Evangeline
Just awesome fantasy... think a more feminine version of Lord of the Rings. The Makilien series is some of Molly Evangeline/Jaye L. Knight's more earlier writings, but I just love this series. Entrancing. Read my full review HERE.
The Door Within by Wayne Thomas Batson
Another sort of unusual fantasy. Or maybe something along the lines of The Chronicles of Narnia. In any case, it was an adventurous and amazing journey. Perfect for younger boys and girls, but I loved it too! :) Read my full review HERE.
The Word Changers by Ashlee Willis
Don't recognize the cover? That's because it's new!! (And how superbly gorgeous?!! *smiles*) This book is an unlikely and thrilling escapade, and you'll probably love it if you just pick it up, :) Read my full review HERE.
So there's some of my favorites of fantasy reads from 2014... and now I'll just do a few more of other genres:
The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton
I just love these stories. Of native American lifestyles and grand, some times difficult, adventures. This was beautifully written and just captivating. Lovely historical. Read my full review HERE.
Tattler's Branch by Jan Watson
Goodness, what is it about Jan Watson's books?? They just manage to draw me in every time... right back into the old days in the mountains. Intriguing tales for sure. Read my full review HERE.
Forget Me Not by Amber Stokes
Amber Stokes's has a lovely writing style... and I quickly came to adore her books. Forget Me Not was my favorite I think; poignant westerns! Read my full review HERE.
The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen
And a superb Regency... by Julie Klassen of course! This was a terribly interesting novel, with all kinds of mystery and intrigue! A great and touching story. Read my full review HERE.
Spell Hunter by R.J. Anderson
I just had to throw in this fairy story. Not what I usually read, but was I ever captivated by this enchanting tale! Want to read about fairies, but feeling too old for Tinker Bell? ;) Try out this series! I have really been enjoying it! :) Read my full review HERE.
Now for some self-help/devotional type books. You have to love those too, :)
