Top Ten Books I Read in 2014

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I Read in 2014. A big thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting Top Ten Tuesday!Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger, Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, The One by Kiera Cass Top Ten Books

(Yes, I put all these covers on the same row because PRETTY DRESSES!)

1) Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger | The writing style in this book is so humorous and enjoyable. I’ll definitely be checking out the rest in this series. (Read my review and Jules‘!)

2) Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier | Honestly, I loved this entire trilogy and binge read it in a weekend (oops). Lively characters and time travel make this a fun read! (Read our review.)

3) The One by Kiera Cass | When I read this on release day, we thought it was to be the last book in The Selection series. I’m so glad there will be two more books about America’s daughter! (The fourth book, The Heir, releases May 5, 2015.) (Read our review.)

The Princess Bride by William Goldman, Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia) by C. S. Lewis4) The Princess Bride by William Goldman | This book definitely goes onto my top favorite books of all time. There’s humor, romance, fighting. Something for everyone! (Read our review.)

5) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein | This book broke my heart and convinced me I’m not that great of a friend. It’s historical fiction (which I don’t really like), but Rachel and Jules forced me to read it and I’m so glad they did.

6) The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis | Okay, so this may be a strange one to add, but I’m reading the entire Chronicles of Narnia series, and this is the first book. It’s Narnia’s creation story. I’ve seen the movies (and am now reading the books, of course), and it’s amazing how much more I appreciate Narnia having read the story of how it came to be.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West, talon by Julie Kagawa, Champion (A Legend Novel) by Marie Lu

7) The Distance Between Us by Kasie West | 2014 will forever be known as the year I fell in love with Kasie West. I read all of her books this year, and I’m anxiously awaiting The Fill-In Boyfriend that won’t release until May 5, 2015. (Yes, the same day as The Heir. Guess who will be at the bookstore first thing in the morning?) (Read our review.)

8) Talon by Julie Kagawa | This was my first dragon book to read! Needless to say, I loved it. Although I’m not entirely thrilled that there are going to be FIVE books in this series because I want the rest NOW!

9) Champion by Marie Lu | So, confession. Somehow I accidentally read this book first. Which is a problem, because this is the third book in the trilogy. Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed it and went back to read Legend (though I haven’t read Prodigy).

Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell10) Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell | This was by far the biggest surprise for me, but I absolutely LOVED this book and am already itching for a reread.

  1. I have a few of these on my reading list but haven’t actually read any of them! I really liked Blythewood by Carol Goodman 🙂 It’s a pretty easy read but adorable. I love anything to do with fallen angels and the likes so I’m a sucker anyhow but it was a good book. Ravenswood (the 2nd book in the trilogy) as just released this month and I loved it equally. You might enjoy these as well!

  2. The Magician’s Nephew is really good! I actually read it last when going through The Chronicles of Narnia and really like it brought everything together.
    Code Name Verity made my list as well, though it certainly was brutal!

  3. Nice list! I’ve read three of these. Haven’t gotten to CHAMPION yet, although I did read the first two books this year. I need to read it before I forget who’s who and what’s what in the series!

    Happy TTT (on Wednesday — I’m a little late to the party)!
