Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
There were so many amazing books released in 2014, many of which I anxiously awaited and pre-ordered. Of course, try as I might, I can't read every book. There are always a few that I really wanted to read but just never got around to, which brings me to this week's Top Ten topic, "Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To". I was really looking forward to reading all of these books, some I even chose to feature in Waiting on Wednesday posts. Hopefully, I'll get around to reading these soon.
So, here they are, ten books I meant to read in 2014:
As you can see, I bought them all and had every intention of reading them.
Let's go through them one at a time...
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
I think the sheer size of this book is what made me put off reading it.
Atlantia by Ally Condie
I was looking forward to this all year, I even pre-ordered it! I'm sure I could even read it in a day! I really need to set a day aside for it.
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
This one taunts me. I hear so many wonderful things about it. I wish I had made time for it.
The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
This book sounded so cool and so fun! I'm hoping to finally get started reading it soon. I had to have it right away, but for some unknown reason I never got to it. I wonder what distracted me?
Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
I really, really meant to read this. You can't go wrong with books about Faustian bargains.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
I have no idea why I haven't read this yet. I feel kind of ashamed that I missed it last year.
Love is the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson
I picked this thriller as a my Waiting on Wedensday a while back. Well, I waited, I bought and I...didn't get around to reading it. This makes me sad.
Extraction by Stephanie Diaz
I seriously almost started reading this at least ten times but I got distracted or I had to read other books for review or who knows what happened. I now have the second book, so I should probably get moving and read this.
Talon by Julie Kagawa
Another book I waited anxiously for that I never got to read. It's a big one, too. I fail.
Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell
I was looking forward to the spooky Voodoo that this book promised. I made it a Waiting on Wednesday and was so excited to finally get it. I tried to read it, but at the end of the year things got kind of crazy. I will be reading it soon. Really.
Have you read any of these?
Which ones should I move to the top of my tbr pile?
