Book Tuesday: Top Books of 2014

Instead of a usual Book Tuesday post, I thought I would share the top books I read in 2014.  I originally tried narrowing it down to 10, but lets be real now.


I tried to keep it short(er), but there were such great books this year! Keep in mind, I only started the blog in June so I haven’t reviewed all the books on this list.  Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check them out though!

  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
    This whole series really.  It was fantastic.  Don’t wait to read it like I stupidly did.
  • Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
    What a way to finish a series!! Amazing.  One of my all-time favs.
  • Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
    ALL THE FEELS!!! Seriously. These books just keep getting better and better!!

  • The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
    I wish this series wasn’t over 🙁 It was a fantastic conclusion to a great story with dynamic and interesting characters.  I’m sad to see it go!
  • Virgin by Radhika Sanghani
    Haven’t laughed so hard while reading a book in a long time! Great book for Book Clubs or any girl who has gone through a bikini wax.
  • Green Rider by Kristen Britain
    This was a re-read, but such a GOOD one! Perfect example of Fantasy done right. Plus there’s horses!

  • The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
    I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW! What a great way to start off a series.  Wasn’t too sure about it at first, but it ended up being one of my favs!
  • Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder
    This was one I didn’t end up reviewing on the blog, but this series is so fantastic that I had to include it on this list.  This was the last in this trilogy and it was a fantastic story!
  • Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
    Pick it up. Pick it up now.  Trust me.  This was just…romantic…and adventurous, and beautiful, and all the feels.

  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
    An awesome fantasy series that you must get your hands on now. I’m chewing at the bit for the final installment!
  • King Cave by Scarlett Dawn
    Despite having mixed feelings about King Tomb, this was hands down my favorite in the whole series.  An awesome read with lots of sexiness, witty banter, and general kick-assness!
  • Winterspell by Claire Legrand
    This one just made this list in the nick of time! Fantastic book and I hope there will be more in this world!

That’s it! How about you? What great books did you read in 2014?
