BEST BOOKS I'VE READ IN 2014

For day one I'm sharing my top ten list of Best Books I've Read in 2014! It was extremely tough to pick only ten, but I managed (yay!). These are the books that made me swoon, made me cry or made my eyes go wide the most. The BEST of the best! ;)

1. Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
Beacause it's THEBESTBOOKEVER!!!<3
Nope, won't ever tire of talking about it. Haven't read it? YOU SHOULD.


2. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Because Colleen writes magic, this book was soooo cute and I loved the music by Griffin Peterson.


3. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Finally Isla <3 
Stephanie is hands-down the best at writing Contemporary YA.


4. The Good Sister by Jamie Kain
Because this is a beautiful, emotional read about three sisters and it's chilling how they cope with the death of the eldest. It's amazing.


5. Drowned by Nichola Reilly
 Because the main character has a disability and she still kicks-butt left and right. Girl power at its best!


6. The Body Electric by Beth Revis
 Because this book totally wins the best plot twist book award (if it existed). Amazing, amazing, amazing!


7. Raven by Stacey Rourke
Because Sleepy Hollow retelling + Edgar Allan Poe thrown in the mix = fantastic book <3


8. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Beacuse TEAM CHAOL <333 Enough said.


9. Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington
Because I loved how much I ugly cried at the end and because reading about alternate worlds/lives is so cool.


10. This Crumbling Pageant by Patricia Burroughs
Because this book is crazy! Fantasy in regency times with a wicked storyline. Must read!

And that's it for my top ten. What were your favorite reads of 2014? :)

  11. ISLA was amazing. And Throne of Glass was too, though I read it previously. I have got to read Beth Revis's book and Colleen Hoover is topping so many lists. I must grab her newest release now and start to read it! And I like the sound of "girl power" for DROWNED. May have to check that out!

  12. I haven’t heard of Stolen Songbird? Is it epic fantasy? Because that’s my favorite genre and it’s been a while since I’ve read a good one. I love the cover for Raven. Awesome list of books!
