TTT #21: Top Ten Books I Read in 2014


Top Ten Tuesday button

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish where people share their top ten things according to the topic of that week.


For this topic, I didn't limit myself to just 2014 releases even though most are. The ones that aren't, were still released within two years. I don't think I need to explain any further since these books are always popping up in my posts haha. Click on the cover for my review or Goodreads :D

  1. Some of these I still need to read but all the others I absolutely loved as well like the West books, Maas, LaFevers, Clare, Hoover and Perkins. LOL, okay, I have read most of them. :P

    Great picks and I couldn't agree more with them!

  3. I feel lame because i've only heard of a couple of these books, lol. Granted, i don't generally read a ton of YA. Some of them have peaked my interest though so ill have to check them out!!

    1. No need to feel bad! If YA's not your typical read then you for sure won't a lot of these. I hope you do check some out though :D

  4. Ooh, totally agree with Throne of Glass! I went with CoM and HoF, and I was thinking of adding ToG to the list, but I though adding all three might be going a little too far! (And the obsession I have with the series would be a little obvious *cough* ;) ) I really need to read the Isla! I read Anna this year, and I NEED to continue on with the other two. And Mortal Heart! I read Grave Mercy, and I actually have the second book, definitely need to read it ASAP. Awesome list, Eileen!

    1. I LOVED CoM but I decided to go with ToG since it's the first book in the series and I LOVE the series as a whole! Yesssss, you need to read ALL of them. Sorry about the caps but I'm excited for you to read them all haha~

  6. I still have to read some of these but City of Heavenly Fire was also one of my favourite reads this 2014. Fangirl and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown didn't make it to my list but the first one could have been a favourite also ;)
    I'm dying to read His Fair Assassins trilogy as well as Isla

    1. CoH was pretty epic ;) Sad that the series is over but so glad we get more of the Shadowhunter world!! I really hope you read the His Fair Assassin trilogy soon! And Isla!!

  8. Let see... I loved Coldest Girl and Throne of Glass but didn't read them this year. Mortal Heart was awesome! I'm listening to Open Road Summer right now in audio. Great list! I really need to read Fangirl soon.

    1. Please read Fangirl!! I really need to try an audio book soon. Hope you're enjoying the Open Road Summer audio :)

  10. I really enjoyed City of Heavenly Fire too, although it's City of Glass that made my TTT this week. Stolen Songbird, Fangirl, and Throne of Glass are on my TBR spreadsheet. I'm also really anxious to start LaFevers' books, I've heard good things about them. Anyways, nice picks, and I hope you encounter some more great reads in 2015!:)

  11. Stolen Songbird was one of my faves this year too as well as Mortal Heart and Split Second and Isla! But choosing just ten is always so damned hard!

    1. It definitely took me some time to narrow this list down! Next time I'm going to do to top twenty lol!!

  12. Great list. I have just read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell and loved it. I need to read Fan Girl next.

    1. Sadly I didn't enjoy Eleanor and Park very much :( I hope you love Fangirl though because it's my favourite contemporary book!

  13. Your list has welcomed many many fluttery butterflies within my belly <3 I seriously love it as they are ones I have on my TBR list which I will be aiming to read next month! Squee!

    1. Hehe~ January needs to come sooner so you can enjoy all those lovelies!

  14. I haven't read any of these! What's wrong with me? Gah. I have no excuse to not have read Fangirl or Isla by now because I've owned both for three months now. I haven't read any of Kasie West books, but she's high on my priority list (If I followed it). I was supposed to read Open Road Summer, but never got around to it. I began Throne of Glass but stopped because it was long. *rolls eyes* Such a great excuse. :(

    I've heard good things though about most of these books so hopefully I'll read them eventually in my lifetime. :)

    I'd link my own list, but er, I'm not sure what code to use. Haha... Great list.

    1. I hope you eventually finish all of them but it's always ok if you're not in the mood for them.

      You use this title goes here Hope that helps :)

  15. Ack, I didn't get around to any of these! I'll definitely be making time for Mortal Heart, Isla, and hopefully the whole Throne of Glass series this coming year! Great list!

  16. AFSDJKL SO happy to see The Coldest Girl on this list!!! That book is entirely underrated. xD and I'm completely with you on Throne of Glass. Seriously, I cannot even fathom how much I adore that book. City of Heavenly Fire was awesome and perfect and I'm completely happy with that ending. Simon tho.
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. I agree, it's definitely underrated! Simon's getting his own book though! Can't wait for it ;)

    1. You'll love Fangirl if you enjoy cute contemporary reads! I hope you do ;)

  18. Throne of Glass, City of Heavenly Fire and Isla and the Happily Ever After are both on my TBR pile - they look fantastic! I read Fangirl but I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped to, glad you liked it! <3

    1. They are fantastic!! Aww sad to hear you didn't enjoy Fangirl more. Maybe it's the hype. Eleanor and Park was one of those books for me. It was so loved by all but I thought it was just ok.

      Delete
  19. I had to limit myself to 2014 releases because otherwise there was no way I could narrow it down. City of Heavenly Fire made my list too! Coldest Girl, Songbird are on my want to read list and I actually have Throne of Glass and the first His Fair Assassins on my kindle. Nice list! :)

    1. I wanted to do that too but some of my favourites just weren't so I gave up. I hope you love them when you read them :)

  20. Great picks. I LOVE Throne of Glass, I had to have the whole series on my list because they are just too awesome. Ugly Love is another that I read and loved. A lot of the others are ones I still need to get to. I am especially excited to finally find time to read Open Road Summer, I've owned it for months so I seriously need to hurry up and get to it already.

    1. I complete agree! ToG is epic!! I know not a lot of people loved Ugly Love but so glad to hear you did too :D I'd love to know what you think of Open Road Summer when you're done~
