Happy 2014! I hope all of my lovely readers had a beautiful, safe, and happy time as they welcomed themselves into this new year. This is the kick off to Jukebox Mixtape’s second year in the blogging world, and I could not be more excited for what lies ahead, I have so many aspirations and goals that I’m hoping to meet throughout 2014.
To welcome the year, I thought I’d put up my top five favorite albums of 2014. My goal, initially, was to get this posted before the new year began, but I found some issues trying to narrow down my album selections to JUST FIVE. It wasn’t easy, but I tend to go a little crazy with my love for certain artists and I had to really reflect on what touched me the most this year. Once I switched my focus to what moved me, it became clear what I albums I had to put on the list. If you’ve been reading steadily throughout the year, most of these probably won’t surprise you, but I still wanted to give my kudos to the albums that really made my 2013 shine.
