Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

These are really no surprise, right?! At the end of last year I read the first Mistborn book and since then I read one Sanderson book at least every 2nd month. The Mistborn books are still (and will forever be) my favorite series of him, but The Way of Kings was awesome too and I can’t wait to start reading the next one in the series!

  • The Flight of the Silvers (Silvers #1) by Daniel Price
    Seriously, if you haven’t read this yet what are you still doing here? This is THE best book about parallel/alternate worlds! Really! If you like that kind of stuff, you MUST read this book!
    (pssst: there is a giveaway coming soon….)
  • The Unbound (Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab
    Was it only this year that I read this? Somehow it seems so long ago!? I just love Schwab’s writing which seems to get even better with each book (have you read Vicious yet???)
  • Blue Lily, Lily Blue (Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater
    An obvious choice, right!? I love these characters so much, I can’t get enough of this series.
  • Catalyst (Insignia #3) by S.J. Kincaid
    WHAT AN EMOTIONAL ENDING, WOAH! This series was awesome! Can’t wait to see what Kincaid writes next.

  • Dreams of Gods and Monsters (DoSaB #3) by Laini Taylor
    A great ending to this awesome series! I already feel like rereading the series. Laini Taylor has such a beautiful writing style. I need more of that!
  • The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
    This is a 2015 release but I just had to read it right when I got it and it was SOOO good!!! Totally mind-blowing!
  • The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentlemen Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch
    #FEELS
    I don’t know why I haven’t read the next 2 books yet (probably because of those feels) but they are on my list for early 2015!
