Top "5" Novels & Graphic Novels of 2014 (so far)

I decided to do a different type of post today because we are over half way through the year (!) and I was watching Jillian at bookishandnerdy over on YouTube (she has a blog by the same name, HERE) and saw her video on her Favorite Books of 2014 so far and decided I wanted to do it too. I have read 59 books so far this year. My original Goodreads goal was 50 books but I have since bumped it up to 75. I’m thinking I will probably pass that too.  I decided to make a separate list for novels and graphic novels because I just don’t think you can compare the two. I cheated a little on both by including series but I did marathon read all of the series that I did list on here so I’m just counting them as one! There are definitely some that were very close runner ups. If you would like to see all of the books that I have read so far this year, check out my Goodreads Challenge HERE.
