Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (December 16th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

Ahhh late, late, beyond late!!  I still wanted to share this list though :)

1.  Cinder & Cress by Marissa Meyer- So glad I went out of my comfort zone and tried this awesome series.  I really loved Cinder and Cress the best so far :)
2.  Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas- Ahhh this book!!  It messed with my head so bad and it definitely gets my award for most addicting book of the year!
3.  To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han- This was just perfection for me.
4.  Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight- It's not technically YA, but it's SO good.  I never wanted to finish it.
5.  Tease by Amanda Maciel- This book seems to be either loved or hated.  I thought it was a great debut & I really related to it.

6.  Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins- A great way to wrap up the series!!  (Even if waiting FOREVER for it kind of made me sad).
7.  Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican- This is not your average book.  It's harsh and different, but I loved it.
8.  Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour- I don't know if this is my favorite book by Nina LaCour, but it definitely has the best writing in it of any of her books.
9.  Ketchup Clouds by Anabel Pitcher- LOVED!  Nothing happened the way I wanted it to in this book, but I just could not put it down.
10.  Ashes to Ashes (Burn for Burn #3) by Jenny Han & Siohan Vivian- This series ended on a high for me.  The first 2 books were good, but this one was my favorite.

Which books did you love this year??


  1. Nodding at a lot of your choices Michelle! :-) I can't wait to read Everything Leads To You. I've heard such amazing things about it.

  2. I'm late to this party, too, but it was such a fun topic I couldn't say no!

    I love The Lunar Chronicles series as well. Such a good one. I hesitated to read CINDER for a long time (I mean, cyborgs? No thanks.), but it was such a pleasant surprise. Great book, great series. Glad you're a fan, too!

  3. Most of these are on my TBR list. I've got to stop being such a slow-poke and get to reading!

  4. Ketchup Clouds is in my top ten too, so GOOD! :) Great list - lots for me to add to my TBR.

  5. I am going to add these to my tbr pile, the only book I have read from your top 10 is Cinder.

    A wonderful list.Sharon – Obsession with Books
