Top Ten Tuesday: Books I read in 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014 (Overall, By A Particular Genre, 2014 Releases)

This is one of the hardest TTT posts I’ve ever had to do. I read SO MANY good books this year. Because of that, I’m going to list more than ten books. Sorrynotsorry. I’m going to give you a list of books published before 2014 that I read this year and a list of books published during 2014. Hope that’s okay! All of the titles are linked to my reviews.

  1. Brilliant list! I LOVED The Maze Runner (think I read that one last year) and I really enjoyed This is What Happy Looks Like but it didn’t quite make my TTT. Aside from that I haven’t read any of the others but they are now all on by TBR! I’ve seen Since You Been Gone on lots of lists this week so that one’s a must-read for me now.

  2. I love that you included The Day the Crayons Quit. That book is so awesome. I must read Love Letters to the Dead. I have seen it a few places, and I’ve wanted to read it for months.

    • I try to keep my lists really well-rounded. I read children’s books, comics, middle grade, YA, adult, etc, so I want to reflect that in my lists. 🙂
      You really should! It’s very good. If you like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, you’ll probably like Love Letters to the Dead.

  3. So happy to see BLLB on so many lists. 🙂 Since You’ve Been Gone is also a favorite of mine. And I just bought The Day the Crayons Quit for my daughter…I can’t wait to read it with her! Great list!

  4. Stefani says hi to Stefani 😀

    I’ve only read Lola from the books on your list. Not my favorite Stephanie Perkins book but very good. This comment is all about the Stef/ph/ani/es it seems 😀

    • Aw. That’s okay. Lola is my favorite book because Cricket is my favorite of the three boys. 🙂
      That’s funny. When I met Stephanie Perkins and had her sign my books, she crossed out the “ph” in her name and wrote an “f” and then crossed out the “e” at the end. 🙂

    • Lola’s my favorite book of the three. Probably because Cricket is my favorite of the boys. 🙂
      Yay for more people reading The Day the Crayons Quit! I think everyone should read that one. Definitely not just for kids.

  5. I still need to read Rain Reign! When I saw Ann M. Martin had a new book out for 2014, I was so excited! I grew up with her Babysitter’s Club Books and love her writing. I started The Young Elites but had to return it to the library. I’m planning to secure a copy soon–it was intriguing!
