A week event hosted by Two Chicks on Books, Reading YA Rocks, Tales of a Ravenous Reader, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads.

Monday, December 22nd – Best Books I’ve Read in 2014 (Doesn’t have to be released in 2014, just a book you’ve read in 2014)

I have read a lot of books this year and it is really hard to limit my list to just ten books (so I have a few extra as well as having book series together.)

1. Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

2. Cress by Marissa Meyer

3. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

4. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

5. Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

6. Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

7. Something Real by Heather Demetrios

8. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

9. The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

10.  Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

11. Compulsion by Martina Boone

12. The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

13. NIL by Lynne Matson

There are several more books that I could easily list here. But then I would probably go to 20 or 25 books. 

How about you? What are some of your favorite books that you read this year? 


  1. I included Ruin & Rising on my list. Great series. Nil was a good read too. I have Something Real and I'll Give You The Sun and must read them soon! Snow Like Ashes and The Winner's Curse seem to be on EVERYONE'S LIST! I must get those soon too!

    Best Books I’ve Read in 2014

    1. YES! Something Real is awesome. And I am in love with Snow Like Ashes! The Winner's Curse was pretty amazing too! I have been needing to read I'll Give You the Sun as well! I'm so glad you enjoyed NIL! And yay for Ruin & Rising! I really hope you will LOVE Something Real, SLA, and TWC! Thanks!
