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.

      Definitely! And when I’m really into a series, such as VA, I tend to read the books in a matter of days, no matter how busy things are. (Not always a good thing!) Luckily I was on spring break when I read VA. 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

      They’re great books! I can’t wait to read the next 2 books in the ToG series. Just disappointed the series isn’t finished yet. 🙁 I’m too impatient. Thanks for commenting!

      Have you read Maggie Stiefvater’s other series? I haven’t, but it’s on my summer reading list because I loved Raven Boys. She really is genius. Thanks for commenting!

    Loooovvee The Lunar Chronicles. I’ve only managed to read the first and part of the second, but as soon as I have the time I’m starting the trilogy over from the beginning and not stopping ’til I’m done 🙂 And I’ve heard nothing but raves about The Raven Boys… I’ll have to check them out sometime!

    My best books list!

      Both really great series! I had the privilege of reading the Lunar Chronicles back to back, and that’s always nice because you know exactly what’s going on and remember all those little details that become important later on. 😉 Thanks for commenting, Sasha!
