Here’s what they have to say about Top Ten Tuesday: “Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly link-up in the community where we provide a prompt and other lovers of listmaking join in on it with their own top ten list. Feel free to have less than 10 or more if you need to at times and put a spin on the topic if you need to! Just please link back to us if you are participating :)”
This week, we’re looking at our top ten reads in 2014. Some of these might be books that were just published this year, but some may have been published earlier. I have met some fantastic books in 2014, and now let me share them with you! It’s hard to pick just ten, but I’m including children’s, young adult, adult, and nonfiction reads.
Top Ten Books Read So Far in 2014
A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
One of my new favorite middle grade books of 2014! And perhaps for all time–read my review and you’ll see why.
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
The first in a series, this fantasy was definitely one of my favorite read in 2014. I appreciate Rutkoski’s style and relished not knowing what was going to happen as this story unfolded…
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I waited and waited for this one to come out–and it did not disappoint! A twisted version of Oz–but one that will hopefully be saved…
I’m a fan of the Lunar Chronicles now. The world of Cinder and Scarlet is fascinating–I’m currently reading Cress and can now see why everyone raves about this series.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab
I still have yet to read the sequel and I think I’m delaying it because I loved the first one so much. This is such a unique premise–check out my review and pick this one up!
Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovitch
This is just my kind of nonfiction book, and I thought Sankovitch’s voice in this slim volume was perfect. I absolutely loved reading about her year of reading one book a day, as she worked through her grief at losing her sister to cancer. I know I will return to this book again!
Windfallen by Jojo Moyes
I read Me Before You first, and then encountered Windfallen for my second Jojo Moyes book. I adored this one!! Looking forward to reading all of her other books.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I JUST posted my review of this luminous mystery and was thinking about this story for days afterwards…
Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo
I LOVE the adventures and antics of Flora and Ulysses. This is heartwarming story that would be perfect as a read aloud!
All Four Stars by Tara Dairman
This foodie novel comes out in July, and it’s a treat not to be missed. Stay tuned for my stop on the Blog Tour hosted by The Midnight Garden!
Bonus: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Aliens? The apocalypse? This was an engrossing story with an interesting take on the alien invasion premise. I am counting the days until the sequel is released…
