I didn't want to make today's prompt too easy or obvious by going with my favorite Readers Imbibing Peril (RIP) reads or my favorite DWJs from the year (which were mostly rereads anyway) so I've decided to go with ...
Five Favorite Chapter Books That I Read for the First Time in 2014
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
The Islands of Chaldea by Diana Wynne Jones and Ursula Jones
I'll also add as a bonus The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander because I read four of the five books this year and I loved the series.
