Top 10 of 2012 Day 5- The 2014 Books we're looking Forward To and a Giveaway!!!

Hey welcome to the last day of the Top 10 Books of 2013! We hope you all have been having fun! To close out the week we’re looking forward to 2014 so today’s topic is….. Top 10 Books I'm looking forward to in 2014. (This list should be comprised of books released ONLY in 2014)

And make sure to stop by my co-hosts sites Fiktshun and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for their lists! Oh and make sure to sign up with the linky to share your lists! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway! Details below.

Ok I’m being a big time cheater here! I’ve read most of these books already but I needed to share how awesome they are on and there’s not a top 10 it’s a top 15! I’ll put READ next to the ones I’ve read lol.

1. Independent Study and Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau READ. Freaking fantastic books!!!!! The ending of the series was perfection!!!!!!!!!!

2. Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd READ. This is definitely going to make my best of 2013 list. Megan’s storytelling is amazing and I’m already dying to get my hands on book 3!

3. Landry Park by Bethany Hagen READ Yep and it was awesome!!!! Loved David, Jude and Ewen! Yep this one is chock full of hawt boys!

4. Defy by Sara B Larson READ. I love me some high fantasy and this will definitely make my favorites of 2014 lists! I fell hard for Damien *swoons*

5. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge READ An amazing retelling of Beauty and the Beast I can’t wait for you all to read this one!

6. Cress by Marissa Meyer READ. This behemoth was fantastic! We get tons of Thorne!!!

7. Alienated by Melissa Landers READ. I have a new book boyfriend and he’s an alien named Aelyx! Trust me you’re going to want to meet this guy!

8. Infinite by Jodi Meadows.READ. The perfect ending to one of my favorite series!

9. All that Glows by Ryan Graudin READ. I’m a sucker for a good Fae book and this one was right up my alley!

10. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo NEED MOAR OF THIS WORLD!!!!!! And Strumhond J

11. Sisters' Fate by Jessica Spotswood. Star Cursed kicked my ass and I need the final installment in this series like yesterday!

12. Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard. Another book I need like yesterday! I have to see how this one ends!

13. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead. If you’ve read The Fiery Heart you know why I need this one so bad. If not go read it now! Richelle likes to kill us slowly with her cliffie endings!!!!!

14. This Shattered World by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman. I LOVED These Broken Stars and can’t wait for the next book in this series. It’s a companion novel but I know it’s going to ROCK!


15. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. I'll admit I'm both excited and scared as hell to read this one. I am Team Warner and I have a bad feeling about him in this. I will freely admit that I will throw this book if something happens to him. If this one ends like the Delirium series, the Divergent series, and the Hunger Games Series did I will be very upset.

Did any of my favorites make your list? Thanks so much for participating in this year's Top 10 of 2013 it was a blast and we hope to see you next year! 

Fill out the linky and let me know! And good luck with the giveaway!

  1. I have a horrible horrible feeling about Ignite Me. I heard about Fracture Me and I think it's all one big misdirection. I think Mafi is making everyone think that Warner will end up will Juliette and 90% of the book will be Warner Warner Warner, but that last 10% Adam will sneak in and win. Either that or Warner will 'sacrifice' himself for love. Which is the worse ending you can do for a love triangle. This is what happened in Boundless by Cynthia Hand. (Team Tucker)
    Silver Shadows! I just finished Richelled's Georgina Kincaid series a few minutes ago (not the first time) and those have the worst cliffhangers EVER!

  2. Cruel Beauty was such an amazing read! I have so much love for that book. And I'm super nervous about Ignite Me as well. I need Warner to be okay. Great picks!

  3. Ooh, ooh, ooh! I've got copies of a bunch of these but am not so ahead as you to have read them! I'm so excited now! :) Ruin and Rising and This Shattered World are both on my list and I'm just DYING for them! I need moreeeee. I'll admit I'm also so scared for Ignite Me! I converted whole-heartedly to Team Warner with Unravel Me, so I'm in the same boat as you! :) Great picks!!

  4. You have a fabulous top '10' (Don't worry, I couldn't just name 10 either so I did 13 lol). I may be reading Her Dark Curiosity before the year is up but I can't wait. I freaking LOVE the first book. It was the very first book I read in 2013 and it's still one of my top reads. So I'm bouncing with excitement for book 2! Also, I read Defy and freaking devoured that. I loved it so so SO much. I didn't put it on my list cause I didn't include ones I've already read but yes, I can't wait to hold that pretty in my hands!

    I am reading Cruel Beauty right now and I'm enjoying it. It's not a read I've been able to breeze through but it's definitely picked up! I read Cress and LOVED IT SO MUCH! I'm going to read it again when I get my hardcover copy. Her storytelling is just so flawless. I can't wait to read Alienated next month; I've heard really good things about it (and I'm in love with this cover). I read Infinite and LOVED it. I'm obsessed (OBSESSED, I tell you) with the Epilogue. So beautifully done and so flippin perfect! All That Glows is up next on my TBR for next month and my friend really loved that.

    Sisters' Fate - OMG, with the way Star Cursed ended, I need this next book like I need air. Strange and Ever After - I can't wait. I seriously can't wait. I adore Susan so much and these books have been fantastic.

    And I'm going to stop gushing about books now. You have a freaking fabulous list. <3

  5. Oh I forgot about Defy. I'm really looking forward to that one. Great looking cover and sounds like the kind of fantasy I'll love!!

  6. Only one of these actually made on my list, Cress, but mostly because I sticked to only 10 ;) But, I can't wait to read Defy, too, as well as Alienated & Cruel Beauty, I'm so glad you loved all of these :)

    Thanks for hosting the event, it was lots of fun once again!

  7. Ignite Me is definitely my top, and I've seen it on pretty much every list today! I'm Team Warner too but I have a good feeling about it so I'm very excited :P
    I adored Alienated! So excited for book 2, though it seems so far away. And Cruel Beauty was great as well.
    Great job on co-hosting the event, Jaime! This was my first time and I'm hoping there'll be one next year too :)

  8. Yes yes yes! :) Love your list! You're sooo lucky that you've read most of the 2014 you've been wanting to read though!

  9. Ignite Me, Infinite, Alienated and Cress are also in mine! Sister's Fate would have been there too, but I reached the 10 books quota with books coming out in the first half of the year, even if I cheated and made two lists: one for sequels and another for debuts or first of a series!

  10. I totally agree with you on Ignite Me! I'm Team Warner too and I hope it ends the way I want :) I haven't read The Fiery Heart yet but I've got it sitting on my shelf just waiting.

  11. What a awesome list of books to look forward too. Thanks for the info!

  12. There are so many books to look forward to next year! Cress, Strange and Ever After (I needed that one yesterday, too!), The One, Dorothy Must Die, Empower - ugh, I could just go on and on.

    I'm in the middle of Cruel Beauty right now and loving it!

  13. I need Ruin and Rising and Ignite me so baaaaaaaad! Must know how those series end. Great list!

  14. I'm really looking forward to Cress and Ignite Me!
