It’s that time of year, Riot readers! We’re hard at work on our 2014 favorites here at HQ, and we want to hear from you as well. It was another rad year in reading, so we’re giving you up to 3 picks each. Submit your selections by Wednesday, December 10th to have them included in the final count.

A few guidelines:

  1. The book must have been first published in 2014.
  2. There is no restriction on genres, publishers, formats, etc.
  3. Enter each title only once. Repeat entries by the same user will be deleted and only the first entry will be counted.
  4. Play by the honor code. This isn’t a promotional opportunity; please don’t attempt to use it as one.
