The ratings for the books I read this year broke down as follows:
- 5 stars - 29 books
- 4 stars - 45 books
- 3 stars - 27 books
- 2 stars - 1 book
Of the 102 books that I read, 43 were indie published. While that wasn't as many as in 2013, I'm still happy with the number of indie books I read. More often than ever, I couldn't tell if a book was indie published by looking at it or reading it. In 2015, I expect the lines between traditionally published and indie published books to blur even more.
In case you're interested, the ratings for the indie books were:
- 5 stars - 9 books
- 4 stars - 23 books
- 3 stars - 11 books
- Kate Avery Ellison - I started reading The Frost Chronicles this year and loved the series. As a result, I'm going to try reading all of her other books!
- Katie French - I've raved about her Breeders series before. The novels are among the best YA dystopian books I've read.
- M.A. George - Perhaps best known for her Proximity series, it was her latest novel, Aqua, that turned me into a big fan. I recommend trying both!
Next week, I'll list my top ten favorite books read in 2014. Stay tuned!
