Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn't Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature by The Broke and the Bookish where you post a list of books in the selected theme for that edition. This week: Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant to Read but Didn't Get To. As you all know, I was pretty much MIA for an entire year in 2014, so even though I planned to read a ton of books, I barely read any. So when 2015 started almost two weeks ago, there were plenty of books I still had to read that were published in 2014. I was massively excited when these came out and I'm determined to read them some time in 2015. Here goes!

Darkness Hidden by Zoë Marriott
I love Zoë and so far I have liked every single book I've read by her. The Night Itself was fantastic and I really like this new story Zoë's set out, yet somehow I still haven't read Darkness Hidden. I shall resolve this issue in the near future.

The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
This sounded so cute when I first came across it and I really really wanted to read it soon. I even got an ARC. And it's still unread. I know, I suck. After hearing Debby rave about this book for AGES, I was once again reminded that I need to read this book. And so I shall do so.

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I KNOW. I KNOW. I'm a massive fan of Morgan's previous books, Second Chance Summer (a.k.a. The Sobfest Book) and Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, so of course I was massively excited about her new book. Which I still haven't even bought *snort* I'm the worst fan ever. *hides in the corner*

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
One of the most anticipated contemporaries this year, methinks. I'm still slightly intimidated, even though the real hype has died down. I've seen mixed reviews after the book was actually published, so my expectations have been toned down just a little bit. But since it was also one of *my* most anticipated books of 2014, I really want to get to it.

Split Second by Kasie West
I KNOW. BELIEVE ME I KNOW. I NEED TO READ IT. That is all I'm going to say about it.

Panic by Lauren Oliver
Okay, so the synopsis doesn't really sound all too exciting to me, but I loved all of the books I've read so far by Lauren Oliver, so I'm still keeping this on my list. Lauren made me fall in love with her writing in Before I Fall and even though I must admit that Pandemonium was slightly disappointing, I still thinks she is able to have me hooked on this one.

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Okaaaaaay so when I'm writing this post I haven't even actually read House of Hades yet *cough* (told you I'm a terrible fan) but I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. I was all set on preordering the book and reading House of Hades before it came out but then life happened and got in the way so now I'm here sitting with not one but TWO unread Rick Riordan books *twitches* well, let's look at the positives.. At least I still have two Rick Riordan books to read before Magnus Chase hits the shelves? #optimistic

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
So um yeah I'm probably the only person out there who hasn't read this book yet. But when I saw Crimson Bound pop up on my feed I was reminded that I really really really need to read Cruel Beauty in the very near future.

The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
YES YES MORE FLUFF! Jennifer is my favourite fluffy contemporary author. I mean yeah, I too find her books a bit predictable or cliché sometimes, but they make me feel gooooood and sometimes it's just what I need. I love them. So yeah, I was jumping up and down when this was up on my radar, yet I still haven't even gotten it yet. *hangs head in shame* I'm very excited to read this on one of these dark, cold, wintery days so I feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I finish.

2015 is going to be a better reading year for me, I just feel it. What are your top 10 2014 releases you haven't read yet? Feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments :)


  1. READ CRUEL BEAUTY!!! *stares*
    And The Art of Lainey cause it's the cutest :)

  2. I'm trying really hard not to push Cruel beauty into your face, but ahem. Read it as soon as possible. Please? :D Split second is also a good conclusion to the duology!

  3. Since You've Been Gone is on my list too and I've only read one of Matson's books but this one just sounds exactly like the kind of contemporary that I love so I'm hoping to sneak it on to my TBR pile sometime this year.

    Happy reading!
