December 28th, 2014 by

There are technically a few days left in 2014, but I think it’s safe to call it, right? I’ve scoured the Interwebs, polled a few fellow readers, studied the You(th) reviews, and dug deep into my heart… so without further ado, here is a list (in no particular order) of the Best Books of 2014!

(Click on each cover for the official book description from the publisher, and in some cases a Kidsmomo review!)

    icon_nancyNancy’s personal pick from this list is The Mark of the Dragonfly, but books are like adopted children or pets — how could she possibly pick her favorite?!
