Top Ten Books That I Read in 2014.

I have read over 100 books so far this year so to narrow it down to just ten is going to be tricky. Really I’m going to pick the first 10 amazing books that come to mind (Sorry!)phoenix holt

The Witches of the Glass Castle, Evanescent, How I Found You and Phoenix Holt by Gabriella Lepore.

All four are incredible reads, gripping from the first page until the last.  –  TWOGC sequel Uprising is released TODAY!!!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

This book, what can I say? Just…WOW. Karou is my perfect female character I completely devoured this book.cropped-fangirl.jpg

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

A book about a fangirl + a cute guy = perfect for the fangirl community! Rainbow Rowell was a real shining star of 2014 and I’m gutted that this was the only book of hers that I got around to reading. More Rainbow for me in 2015.

Love, Rosie (Where Rainbows End) by Cecelia Ahern.

This was my favourite contemporary chick-lit book of the year by far.

Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Read.

Hello fellow bookworms! I know I’ve been AWOL recently, sorry I missed last week’s TTT, but I am back now and very excited for this week’s Top Ten. I have so many sequels that I have to read, picking 10 could prove very difficult.

  1. The Witches of the Glass Castle: Uprising by Gabriella Lepore – This book will be released on 16th December and I will be downloading the Kindle copy as soon as I wake up on release day. If You have not read TWOGC then I highly recommend that you do.
  2. Siege and Storm (Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo – I got this out of the library today so I shall be reading it very soon.
  3. Ruin and Rising (Grisha #3) By Leigh Bardguo.
  4. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.
  5. The retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.
  6. Lux: Consequences (#3 & #4) by Jennifer L Armentrout.
  7. Lux: Opposition (#5) by Jennifer L Armentrout.
  8. Blood Promise (Vampire Academy #4) by Richelle Mead.
  9. Hunted (Sinners #2) by Abi Ketner & Missi Kalicicki.
  10. The Death Code (The Murder Complex #2) by Lindsay Cummings.

The last two are not released until 2015, not sure if I can wait that long!

Bonus choice: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling – I just really want to reread this book in my beautiful new cover hardback edition.

Top Ten Tuesday #4

Top Ten Tuseday is a weekly meme hosted by Bookish and Broke.

This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’d Give To Readers Who Have Never Read X  I have chosen Scandinavian Crime Thrillers.

I have become quite a lover of this genreover recent years. I have always enjoyed crime fiction and thrillers and after reading the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson I have fallen in love. The settings for these books always capture my imagination 61hGD3peddL__SL1024_and the plots are so well thought out. Scandinavian writers really do seem to have a knack for crime thrillers.

My Top Ten recommendations are:

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson.

Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest by Stieg Larsson.

The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler.
