Before 2014 began, I remember thinking this was going to be a spectacular year for YA contemporaries. What I didn't expect was to be blown away by so many debut authors. Below is my list of 5 star novels that I have read in 2014. Each one completely stole my heart while I was reading it, and to this day still lingers in my head.
Have you read any of these? I hope my high regards for them entice a few readers to either pick up a copy, or move them up your TBR pile. Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

*An honorable mention goes to SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY by Julie Murphy and NOGGIN by John Corey Whaley. Even though I read these books last year, they were pub'ed in 2014 and deserve to be mentioned as favorites. Both of these books are extraordinary, written by two very beautiful people. Favorites for sure!
