Top Ten Tuesday #17: 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

January 13, 2015 / 12 Comments / Top Ten Tuesday, Uncategorized

This week’s TTT is a great way to spotlight some releases that I definitely wish I’d gotten to last year!

1. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han: I really don’t know why this is still on my TBR list – I feel like I *am* Lara Jean because I used to write letters to the boys I liked in HS! Must get to it soon.

2. Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour: Another one I was desperate for that somehow just missed me. I’m determined to get to this beautiful book about a gorgeous Hollywood romance this year.

3. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey: I really enjoyed The 5th Wave and needed to know what happened, but I had so many September ARCs that it just didn’t happen.

4. Even in Paradise by Chelsey Philpot: This book is burning a hole in my Kindle. I’m desperate to get to it, but it somehow never gets read. WHY?!

5. Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle: I still haven’t read a Rebecca Serle book and I’ve heard SUCH GOOD THINGS about this one – kinda like a twist on Win A Date with Tad Hamilton?

6. Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer: SERIOUSLY? How did I not get to Belzhar yet after hearing her speak last year twice and wanting to hug her for her brilliance?

7. When Everything Feels Like The Movies by Raziel Reed: This one is a bit of a cheat – it actually doesn’t come out in the US until April, but it’s a Canadian book that I’m kicking myself for not having noticed until it won the Governor General’s Award, which is a pretty big award for literature here.

8. The Jewel by Amy Ewing: I’m actually kind of upset at myself for not getting to this because I have an ARC and the author was SO nice at BEA. MUST. GET. TO. IT.

9. Landry Park by Bethany Hagen: This is one of those books where I heard the comp (Downton Abbey meets The Selection) and I immediately ordered it…and now it just sits on my shelf, collecting dust *hangs head in shame*.

10. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel: I really, really, really need to read this one – I tried audiobooking it, but I didn’t like the narrator. Then I was hoping it would come as a Christmas present, but it didn’t and now I’m debating buying it because it’s been on my radar for so long.

Have you read any of these books? If I were to choose one, which would you start with? What’s on your Top Ten Tuesday – leave a link, I’ll try to stop by!

  1. What an awesome list!
    I really meant to read both To All The Boys I've Loved Before, and Everything Leads to You as well. They both sound so amazing, and I really want to read them sooner rather than later!
    Belzhar sounds really interesting – I might have to add that one to my list as well.. (:

  2. Tiff! You must read Station Eleven! For me, it was my top pick for 2014. It really resonated. Emily Mandel's writing is beautiful, her characters are perfectly flawed and the story weaved flawlessly through time.
    I don't get the chance to post as many reviews as I'd like but this one I did post. Here's my review:
    Read it! I hope you love it as much as I did. 😉

  3. To All the Boys I've Loved Before and Everything Leads to You are so good. I kind of forgot about Landry Park – I wanted it so badly before it came out, but then I guess it fell off my radar. Oops lol. Great list, Tiff!

  4. What a great list! How could I forget The Jewel? You will love Station Eleven! I just read it at the end of the year and reviewed it on my blog yesterday and it was one of my top favorites for 2014. Didn't like Infinite Sea as much as the first, but still enjoyed. Also, Belzhar was fascinating! You have some good books ahead of you! I have so many good ones in my list I need to get to: -Katie @ Bookish Illuminations

  5. Awesome picks here Tiff^^ I also wanted to read The Jewel and The Infinite this year, but it seems that there are ALWAYS too many books compared to the amount of time we have to read them doesn't it?! LOL Hopefully you get to read ALL of these soon in the new year 🙂 Happy reading! xx

  6. Nice list, lady! I haven't read any of these so I can't do any book pushing, but I might read The Jewel and Rick Yancey's series at some point. 😛 Hope you're able to get to these this year. 🙂
