Year End Review

Chuck Wendig posted a year end review with a list of ten things that you had to pick your absolute favorite of. There could be only one and he made that very clear. I like posting my favorite things, so here is my 2014 year end review:

1) Favorite novel of the year?

Gun to my head I choose Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. It was a difficult decision and came down to that or Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell or Night Broken by Patricia Briggs. I haven’t yet read Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews or it could have been that.

2) Favorite non-fiction book of the year?

The Sh!t No One Tells You: A Guide to Surviving Your Baby’s First Year by Dawn Dais

I did not read as much non-fiction this year as I should have. I’ve got a stack of non-fiction I keep meaning to get to, but it’s harder to read while taking care of a one year old.

3) Favorite short story of the year?

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James Thurber

I’m pretty sure this is the only short story I’ve read this year. It was alright but I think I liked the movie more.

4) Favorite movie of the year?

Guardians of the Galaxy

This is now my favorite Marvel movie, it’s almost perfect.

5) Favorite TV show of the year?

The Flash on CW

I really like the Flash and while normally Doctor Who would be my favorite show, I was disappointed with this season. Flash has been exciting and unlike Arrow it isn’t always dark.

6) Favorite song of the year?

All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor

7) Favorite album?

Miranda Lambert Platinum

Yes I listen to country. I almost picked The Awesome Mix from Guardians of the Galaxy but I thought it felt like cheating.

8) Favorite video game?

Fantasy Life by Level 5. Hands down.

9) Favorite app?

Wells Fargo app. I love not having to go to the bank to deposit checks. It’s awesome!

10) Favorite recipe of the year?

Grilled Pork Chops with Basil. I tried a lot of new recipes this year and wasn’t sure what to pick, so I posed the question to my husband. Without hesitation he said those grilled pork chops. He then started to talk about how amazing they were and how he could still remember the first time I made them for him. I might be jealous of pork chops, but he’s right, they’re really good.
