What are your favorite 2014 reads?


  1. Spoiler: Heir of Fire will be my top book of 2014. Maas continues her rein as queen. As CoM was my top read for 2013. :)
    Great list!
    Happy reading!

  2. Since You've Been Gone is on my list too - it brought me back to contemporaries. :)
    I really want to read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I recently read Holly Black's Doll Bones and enjoyed it.
    My TTT!

  3. Love the Christmas makeover! I haven't read most on your list, but I definitely want to -- a few I already have, I really should read in 2015!

  4. I couldn't agree more with this list! Especially The Coldest Girl In Coldtown, it is by far the best book I have read this year!

  5. Ah, SHADOW AND BONE was so good! Awesome list!

  6. I'm really looking forward to I Give You The Sun, it sounds awesome and I heard great things about it. :)
    Wonderful list. :)

  7. I saw Cat from The Little Book Owl on Youtube create a review for Ready Player One. It sounds absolutely amazing, and I can't wait to get started on my copy. Since You've Been Gone was the best book by far of 2014, for me. Well actually I kind of thought Throne of Glass was better :P But they are two entirely different genres!

  8. ooh what a GREAT list!! I LOVED Throne of Glass and I'm glad you did too :) Sadly I haven't read most of these books, but I can't wait for Since You've Been Gone. Lovely picks <33

  9. Shadow and Bone (and the entire Grisha trilogy) made my list as well! Ready Player One didn't quite make the cut but I did read it this year and enjoyed it!

  10. I'm looking forward to reading Since You’ve Been Gone and Aristotle and Dante.

  11. Ready Player One would definitely make my list, and Daughter of Smoke & Bone is one of the series in my giveaway!

  12. I've actually only read one of these (Coldest Girl in Coldtown = awesome). But a bunch of the others are on my TBR, so good to know you loved them.

  13. Yay for Ready Player One! I never got to Coldest Girl in Cold Town, but hopefully next year.

  14. Great list! I've read Black, Taylor, Maas, and Forman - all of the others are on my tbr!

  15. Since You've Been Gone and Shadow and Bone would totally make my list too! Both are such brilliant reads and surpassed my expectations.

    Nice list there, Missie! <33

  16. I have most of the books from your list on my tbr list, but I still haven't find the time to read them, even though I did watch If I Stay movie and was hugely disappointed.:/ Hope the book is better!

  17. Fun list! And they pretty much all have fantastic covers!!

  18. Fab list! I loved If I stay, it's such an incredible book.

  19. Amazing list! Why? Well, first of all - Ready Player One - I love this book so much, I'll never get bored with it, I actually read it for the 4th time earlier this month :D I also loved Eleanor & Park, If I Stay (did you see the movie, so great), Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Throne of Glass. And the rest are all on my TBR, so I'm glad you loved them, too :D

    Best Books I’ve Read in 2014

  20. I read Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Throne of Glass, and Shadow and Bone all this year too. They are all so great. I just finished reading Heir of Fire and I am already dying for the next book! The other seven are all on my TBR list. Seeing how much you love them makes me even more excited to read them!

  21. Great choices! I really want to read Shadow and Bonw as well as Ready Player One. I have never read a book by Holly Black either even though I have heard that they are all amazing. That is something I can't wait to do! I also have the book Aristole and Dante so now it is just a matter of reading it ^^
