  1. I’ve read 4 – strongly agree with 2, somewhat agree with 1, don’t agree with 1.
    Me Before You
    Looking for Me
    both terrific
    Ordinary Grace – liked it
    Life After Life – didn’t get it and was not emotionally engaged with the characters.


  2. Our lists overlap quite a bit. I read Where’d You Go, Bernadette in 2012 and loved it too. I’ve got 2 of your books here waiting to be read – maybe they’ll make my best of 2014 list. Happy New Year, Mary!


  3. I’ve just read one the Semple book which I liked only in parts! but the rest are all new to me. Making a note of them – I’d certainly like to read them all.


  4. Wow, Mary … I’m honored and delighted to see my novel on your list! Thank you so much. Several of your picks were favorites of mine this year, too!


  5. Hi Mary,

    I haven’t read any of the books from your list, although I do have a few of them on my own reading list, so hope to get to them soon.

    The couple which really stand out for me are ‘Letters From Skye’ and ‘Ordinary Grace’, nice reviews by the way!

    I hope that you and your family have a very happy and healthy New Year,



  6. You already know Looking For Me made my list too and I’m loving Me Before You so I’m sure it’ll be a 2014 favourite. I’ve got The Good House on my kindle but I’d love to get the audio and I’ll keep an eye out for The Last Original Wife and Letters From Skye on audio.


  7. What a great selection, it always amazes me how many times JoJo Moyes turns up on favourites lists. I really must make an effort to read more of her books.

    Happy new year to you and yours and happy reading.


  8. Great list! Quite a few would make it to my best of list too (Good House, The Last. Original Wife, Supreme Macaroni Company) and others are on the shelf for 2014 (me Before You). Thanks for all the great reviews throughout the year! Happy New Year!


  9. I read Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes in 2012 and loved it so much I picked up another of hers (Sheltering Rain) when I found it in a thrift store. I’ve yet to read it, but hope it will be equally good.

    Life After Life has been on my shelf for several months. Perhaps I should read it next.
