2014's Best Books

The number of titles of books I read this year seems a little light, 30 books in 2013, only 18 in 2014. Looking over the list though, I feel a little better about my reading last year, there were some big books on the list.

Non-Fiction Politics and Theology (always a dangerous combination): A Farewell to Mars - An Evangelical Pastor’s Journey Toward the Biblical Gospel of Peace by Brian Zahnd. One could criticize it for being cavalier at times, but it’s covering a lot of ground in small book. It was much more then just an overview for me though, there were several new ideas, new metaphors and even some history that was new to me.

Fiction: The Storm Light Archives (series) by Brandon Sanderson. Only the first two books are out, I read them both, back to back, then pretty much when right into another series Sanderson finished called Mistborn. One of the longest audio book benders of 33 year life. I can not say these books changed my life but they were a lot of fun to read.

I’m looking forward to another year of reading.
