Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
Today I’ll be talking about my top 10 favourite books of 2014 (so far!). I’ve read SO many amazing books, so this was a hard list to come up with. And by the way, I’m not counting re-reads, otherwise The Fault in Our Stars would count for about 17.
1) Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
This book is simply amazing. Beautiful writing, beautiful dialogue, beautiful friendship. Seriously, read it.
2) Dead Ends by Erin Lange
I still haven’t read her book Butter, but it’s very high on my TBR. This was such a good book!
3) These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
I finished this on the 1st January this year, so technically it counts as a 2014 read. CAN’T WAIT for This Shattered World.
4) Lola and the Booy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I’d already read Anna and the French Kiss before this year, but not Lola. Stephanie Perkins is such an amazing writing.
5) The Intern by Gabrielle Tozer
Hilarious and with an endearing protagonist, this is a fantastic Aussie contemporary.
6) Splintered by A G Howard
Alice in Wonderland retelling, yes please! You knew it was going to make it onto this list, surely?
7) Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Basically the whole series. I am so pumped for Winter.
8) Bird by Crystal Chan
This is one of the most unique books I’ve ever read. And it’s MG, which is awesome.
9) The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
Apparently 2014 is “The year of discovering awesome contemporary writers.” Kasie West’s books are AMAZING.
10) Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
I’ve so far read three of Anderson’s books this year, and have loved them all. Wintergirls affected my the most out of those three.
So there you have it! My favourite reads so far in 2014. There are SO SO many more that I could have included (I’ve read a bit over 70 books this year) but I kept it to ten. Look at that restraint. Well done, Emily. What about you guys? What have been your favourite books so far this year?
