Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Releases I Meant to Read

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I would like to direct you to my list a year ago about the books I was excited for in 2014.  All of those books would be on this list.  Yep, I didn't do a good job of reading books released in 2014.

1. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - I am shameful that this book is even on this list.  I didn't read it last year, but it was the first book I picked up this year and it was lovely!

2. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs - I bought this as soon as it came out and it's been sitting on my shelf for a year now.  I have no excuses.

3. Something Real by Heather Demetrios - This book has been stuck in my head since I discovered it late last year.  I don't know why I haven't read it yet.

4. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphey - I heard so much about this right before it came out and not so much since then.  However, I still want to read it because it sounds very good.

5. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige - Every time I go into a book store, I seem to gravitate to this book, so I have no clue how I don't own it yet, but such is life.  I want to read it, I mean Dorothy's gone crazy and has to be stopped.  Who doesn't want to read that. (edit: I received this for Christmas yay and I am reading it now!)

6. The Young Elites by Marie Lu - I loved her first series and knew that I had to read her next one.  I just don't know why I haven't read it yet.

7. Hexed by Michelle Krys - This book looks so good, but I just haven't found time to read it.  It isn't at my library so I'm going to have to pick it up this year and read it!

8. Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones -  This book is about a band of super criminals, x-men meets oceans eleven style.  It sounds so interesting!  It another one of those books that haven't made it into my library's circulation, so I have to buy it so I can read it.

9. My Faire Lady by Laura Wetterson - Anything about the Renaissance Faire is worth a chance.  I love the Renaissance Faire and try to go every year, but I haven't read any books about them.  Unfortunately, this one didn't get read, yet.

10. The Islands at the End of the World by Austin Aslan - This title just sounded like I was in for an epic story of survival.  Unfortunately, I spent a lot of time not reading books published in 2014, so I haven't read it yet.  I'm going to make sure this gets read in 2015.


  1. ISLA <3 <3 <3 My heart just melted thinking about this book! This one is a MUST!

    1. I know! I was so excited when it came out but I didn't get to it until this year. I should have read it sooner!

  2. I haven't read any of these! I've been wanting to read Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Did you love it?!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  3. My Faire Lady sounds good! I haven't heard of that one, but I love medieval stuff. The Renaissance Fair in Atlanta is just okay, but Medieval Times Dinner show is fun :)
