The 65th National Book Awards were online via live webcast yesterday on the site nationalbook.org Since 2014 is rounding off, what would you say were your favorite reads this year? I would say my personal favorite was And Only To Deceive by Tasha Alexander. She has a series of three novels that I know of. I have already read two - that was the first one. They are sort of like Jane Austin novels but written by a modern day American author. She has an element of detective work and history mixed in as well. What about you?
