Ah, my now annual tradition of breaking the top ten rule by many. There is no way I can limit myself to just ten books. Note: if I just read the series for the first time this year, I only included either the first or my absolute favorite of the series.
 But, without further ado, here are my favorite books of 2014.

Well. That's 46 books.


  1. First of all, YAY for including Open Road Summer on your list. That book is AMAZING! I am super jealous of the fact that you seem to have read The Start of Me and You already as well - it is probably my most expected book of 2015!
    There are so many books here I own but haven't read yet - Wildflower, Don't Touch... seeing them here really makes me want to pick them up.

    Thanks for sharing these and have a good Tuesday :)

    1. A friend was generous enough to loan me their ARC so I got to read it back in September! And guess what? I thought The Start of Me and You was even better than Open Road Summer.

  2. Oh my gosh, I loved On the Fence and Since You've Been Gone!!! Right now I'm reading Top Ten Clues You're Clueless. :D

  3. Winner's Curse, Cress, Snow Like Ashes, Mortal Heart... all made my list too! Very excited to see Kiss of Deception and Midnight Thief on your list. Can't wait to read those two! And Girl of Fire and Thorns!!! I love that series soooo much! Did you read all of them this year or just the first one?

  4. Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend and Better Off Friends I enjoyed a lot! The Art of Lainey and Top Ten clues You're clueless are on my TBR list, they look fun! And I LOVE Tuesdays at the castle a lot! :)

  5. Oh Gosh I think someone cheated here just a little haha c: I've heard so many amazing things about most of these but I just haven't got to them yet :C But I see that you've got The Geography of Me and You there and I was just wondering why you liked it. I'm just interested because I got about 150 pages in and couldn't really get into it. Did you find that too or is it just me? And does it get better after those 150 pages because I've been thinking of maybe picking it up again...

    Anyways, here's my Top Ten for this week:

    1. I like most of Jennifer E. Smith's writing, so that made it easier for me to enjoy The Geography of You and Me. I reviewed the book here:, if that will help you understand better why I liked it. :)

  6. LONGEST AWESOMEST LIST EVER! I have read quite a few of these and need read even more of them!!!

  7. KILLER INSTINCT! I looove that series! It is SO FREAKING GOOD.

  8. Wow, that's a lot of favorites! I'm glad you read so many great books this year. I loved CRESS, liked TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE, thought ON THE FENCE was cute, and found WHEN to have a very interesting premise.

    Happy TTT!

  9. I loved Pivot Point! Can't wait to read Split Second :) Great list.
