Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 released I meant to read…



Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular blog meme, Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on: January 13: Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To.  I’m proud to say most of the books I really wanted to read that were released in 2014, I read.  Yay!  There were some titles by new or new to me authors that are still sitting on my to-read list.  I have plans for some of them this year during the various book themes I’ve thought up for Read What I Like.  The last few titles might be filler books, meaning I added them to the list, they came out in 2014, but I’m not all that heart-broken that I didn’t get to them yet.

Ten 2014 releases I meant to read in 2014

  1. Blood Games (Chicagoland Vampires, #10)  Blood Games by Chloe Neill:  This one I needed to wait on until it became available through Inter-Library Loan at my library.  Probably could have requested it last month, but just never got around to it.  Maybe in March…
  2. Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)  Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor:  This one came out back in April and I just never got around to it.  The thing is the more time that passes the less desire I have to pick it up.  Too many other series have come and gone and I forget what happen in this world.  Some month I may just have to have a forgotten series theme…
  3. The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey:  To be fair what held me back from reading this one was the fact that I have yet to read the first one…
  4. California California by Edan Lepucki: This one looked really interesting and not just cause I think the cover is cool.  I will get around to this one during my Library Read theme month.
  5. Vampires of Manhattan (The New Blue Bloods Coven, #1) Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz:  When I learned of this spin-off of the Blue Bloods series I promptly added it to my to-read list and forgot about it…
  6. Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire (Love at Stake, #16) Crouching Tiger Forbidden Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks:  To be fair on this book it was released on 12/30/14, not a lot of time to start it last year, yet I could have and often have read one of her titles in a day or two…  Next month for Romance February.
  7. Howling For You (Chicagoland Vampires, #8.5)  Howling For You by Chloe Neill:  This is one of the filler books for the list.  I wouldn’t mind reading this one, but I’m not going to go out of my way…
  8. After the End (After the End #1) After the End by Amy Plum:  This is a YA book that came into the library that looked interesting.  I’ve not checked out a book at work in a while and this one is included in the list of titles I want to read stacking up at work.  This one I might save until October when I have a YA reads theme.
  9. Beautiful Oblivion (The Maddox Brothers, #1) Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire: This one is another filler title. I’m not sure yet if I want to read the spin-off series by this author.  I like the original, but wasn’t overly excited about it.
  10. Unwrapping Tess: Christmas Encounters (Vegas Mates, #5) Christmas Encounters by Krystal Shannan:  This one came out, but wasn’t available on the Nook until this year.  So it kinda counts…


One last thing.

  1. I really enjoyed Dreams of Gods and monsters. I thought the second book of the series was a little “meh” (clearly a middle book where things are just getting set up), but this one was very engaging.


      1. Oooo! Good idea! I wasn’t sure what book to use for that category on the Popsugar challenge because even if I pick up a book for the cover, I read the blurb. But I’m not really sure what that’s really about, so it could count. :)
