I’ve read 29 books so far this year. 2014 has been, in my opinion, a really great year for books. Of course, many of the books I’ve read were published in previous years, but I just hadn’t read them yet. I’ve been introduced to new series, which is always fun because then the enjoyable experience lasts longer. What isn’t so much fun, however, is when you finish reading the most recently published book in a series but have to wait for the remaining books to be published. Ugh.
So I give you the top 10 books I’ve read so far this year (in no particular order):
#1-3 – The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Finally, finally began reading the series. I completely fell in love with it, and upon finishing Cinder couldn’t wait to get my hands on Scarlet and Cress. I also had the privilege earlier this year of interviewing author Marissa Meyer on the blog. Looking forward to Winter, book 4 in the series! Check out my review of Cinder.
#4-5 – Vampire Academy series and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead
For the longest time, I swore off vampire books. Stupid, stupid. The six Vampire Academy books were incredible, and Richelle Mead is an extremely talented writer. The books had depth and meaning. When I finished VA, I immediately began reading the spinoff series Bloodlines. Check out my reviews of Vampire Academy, the Vampire Academy movie, and Bloodlines.
#6 – Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
The first book in a series about twins with special powers. Loved this book! In my recent Rewind & Review post, I mentioned that I won a signed copy of this book in a giveaway hosted by Awkwordly Emma. Needless to say, I was super excited. My review of this novel is to come.
#7 – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Another book I can’t believe I haven’t read until now. I have officially joined Sarah J. Maas’ fan club! My review of this novel is to come.
#8 – In the Shadows by Kiersten White, Jim Di Bartolo
An enjoyable standalone novel. An e-galley of this book was provided by NetGalley and Scholastic, and I loved that the story was accompanied by beautiful illustrations. Check out my review of In the Shadows.
#9-10 – The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater
Loved, loved, loved these books. The plot line is completely unique and the book is narrated by multiple perspectives, which adds depth and intrigue. I would definitely recommend Raven Boys. Check out my review of Raven Boys.
