2. Longest & shortest: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare was the longest at 733 pages and Happenstance by Jamie McGuire at 100 pages, not counting any novella’s I read this year.
3. Best & worst: The Elite and The One by Kiera Cass for best because I loved that series, and Variables by Shelbi Wescott because I couldn’t finish it.
4. First & last reads of 2014: Hope Entangles by Alice Bello and Loop by Karen Akins (since I haven’t started the book in my currently reading slot yet.)

6. The most disappointing & the biggest pleasant surprise: Biggest surprise was how much I enjoyed The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, wasn’t sure how I would feel about it and took a long time to finally decide to read it. Most disappointing would be  Variables by Shelbi Wescott again because I enjoyed the first two books and was disappointed that I couldn’t bring myself to care about the last book in the series.
7. Bandwagon/fandom you joined & one you abandoned: Finally finished the Anna and the French kiss series by Stephanie Perkins, and haven’t really abandoned anything.
8. Most lenient & harshest ratings: Most lenient would be Still Point by Katie Kacvinsky because I liked the series, but the end of the book bugged me, harshest rating I don’t think I had one of those this year, didn’t read as many books as I would have liked.
