5 Must-Read Novels from 2014

A friend recently asked for recommendations of newly published books that are actually worth reading. I tend to read books a few months after they're published (unless I receive an advanced copy) so here is a list of five books that were published in 2014 that I consider must-reads. These books span the contemporary fiction, science fiction and thriller genres ~ and I loved them all.

The Martian by Andy Weir
Sci-Fi
Told from the perspective of an astronaut stuck on Mars alone.

First Impressions by Charlie Lovett
Blend of historical and contemporary fiction
Alternating voices of Jane Austen in the past and one of her fans in present time.

The Secret Place by Tana French
Mystery/Thriller
An investigation of a murder on the campus of a prestigious girls school.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Contemporary fiction
Told from the perspective of three women trying to make their way through life.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Contemporary fiction
A story of a curmudgeonly bookseller and the people who love him.
