Top Ten 2014 Books I’m Dying To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish.

This is one of my favorite topics- listing the books I’m most excited to read next year. I took a peek at last year’s list to see how I did, and I actually read just about all of them. Let’s see if I picked the right books again this year!Silver Shadows

1. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead – Of course! “Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.” That’s slightly disconcerting. Due July 29th from Razorbill. GR

2. Armada by Ernest Cline – A new book from the author of Ready Player One. Hope Wil Wheaton narrates this audiobook too! Due Oct. 7th from Crown. GR

3. Landline by Rainbow Rowell – Adult contemp about a woman who can magically save her marriage or choose to erase it. Doesn’t matter what it’s about, really, can’t wait to read it. Due July 8th from St. Martin’s Press. GR

4. #scandal by Sarah Ockler – Gaming, scandal, social media, romance. Looks good! Due June 17th from Simon Pulse. GR

Guardian5. Guardian by Alex London – The sequel to Proxy! You know I don’t read a lot of dystopia but this series (inspired by The Whipping Boy and Feed) struck a chord. Due May 29th from Philomel. GR

6. Breakable by Tammara Webber – Companion book to Easy from Landon/Lucas’s POV, including a prequel and scenes from Easy. Due May 6th from Penguin. GR

7. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson – A friend leaves mysteriously and leaves behind a list of unusual tasks for Emily to complete. Due May 6th from Simon & Schuster. GRsince you've been gone

8. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – A music-themed college romance from one of my favorite NA authors. Yes! Due March 18th from Atria Books. GR

9. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick – Really liked My Life Next Door and can’t wait to read Fitzpatrick’s summertime romance follow-up. Due April 15th from Dial. GR

10. Still Point by Katie Kacvinsky – The final book in the Awaken trilogy! So many trilogies are ending- hope this one doesn’t break my heart. Due Sept. from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. GR

  6. Sunny says:

    I so agree with your #7 and YES on Rainbow Rowell. It’s adult, but I don’t care. I’ve been seeing #scandal everywhere, but I’m not sure how I feel about that one. Such a great list!

  7. BermudaOnion says:

    How did I miss the fact that Rainbow Rowell has a new book coming out? I’ve got to get hold of that.

  8. Tara says:

    I hadn’t yet seen Since You’ve Been Gone, but it definitely sounds like something I’d like. And, of course, the the Rainbow Rowell book!

  9. Tammy Sparks says:

    You have some great choices Lucy:) I must get around to reading some Rainbow Rowell, I must be one of the few left on the planet who hasn’t! And I also picked Armada:)

  10. Daphne says:

    I am really looking forward to Tim’s story, too. and Since You’ve Been Gone. 🙂 great list…great minds and all that.

  11. Great list! I can’t wait for the new Rainbow Rowell book too. I love her writing. and I’m glad you put Richelle Mead on. I haven’t started Bloodlines yet ( I KNOW I’m the last one in the world!) but I keep waiting so I can just read all of them at once! Ha!

    I need to start reading Rainbow Rowell’s books before Landline comes out! I’ve heard great things about her books so far and really want to read Eleanor and Park. 🙂

  14. Nikki says:

    So many great ones on your list!!! I’m super excited for Guardian, too. LOVED Proxy! Also Since You’ve Been Gone, and What I Thought Was True. Those ones sound REALLY good. So excited for all these 2014 books!

  15. I’d like both Silver Shadows and Landline now please! Can’t wait to get my hands on them, 2014 still feels like a long time to wait!

  16. Richelle is on my list too 🙂 🙂 🙂

  17. Sydney says:

    I haven’t read any of Colleen Hoover’s books, but Maybe Someday is on my list of books to read in 2014. I’ve read so many great things about her and I want to give her a try. I’ve also heard a lot about Since You’ve Been Gone, so I’m checking that one out on Goodreads for sure!

  18. I had no idea Ernest Cline is coming out with a new one. I finished Ready Player One not too long ago (the audio version!) and I loved it.

    And I can’t wait to read CH’s new one. I loved the single by Griffin!
