Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 releases I'm dying to read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they post a new topic that the participants come up with a top ten list for.

This week is about which of next year's releases we're most excited about

Aaah, I love this topic! :D I always marvel at how many great books are coming out. Here's the ten that look best to me, though there are many more I could have included.
I hope the slideshow works, if you're reading this as an email you might want to open it on the actual blog.

Unhinged (Splintered #2), by A.G. Howard
I loved Splintered so much and really hoped there'd be a sequel! I need more Morpheus and I felt that Alyssa had unfinished business.

The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #3), by Michelle Hodkin
It was supposed to be published this October but got pushed back to June 2014. I. Need. It. Now!!! Seriously I just want to see Mara kick ass and, well, get her retribution. Because does she ever deserve it.

Fiendish, by Brenna Yovanoff
I really like that Brenna Yovanoff writes standalones! It's a nice change from the usual YA, which seems to be all series. I love the look of this one. Creepy houses and girls... yes please!

Oblivion (Nevermore #3), by Kelly Creagh
I've seen three versions of this cover so far and I'm not happy with the coloring of any of them quite yet. No matter what though, the content will be fantastic and is very likely to rip my poor heart to pieces.

Talon, by Julie Kagawa
New series! With dragons! And an order tasked with finding and destroying them. Can't wait for it to get a cover and a more precise description.

Throne of Glass #3, by Sarah J. Maas
Again, no cover, no title. But I need this sequel!! The end of book 2 suddenly made the world of this series so much bigger, I can't wait to see where it all goes from here.

Between the Spark and the Burn (Between #2), by April Genevieve Tucholke
I'm not quite happy with the font here. I think they should have stuck with the one from the first book. Bug again, as long as I get more of that lovely prose, I'm not about to get all huffy ;)

The Winner's Curse, by Marie Rutkoski
I really enjoyed Rutkoski's The Shadow Society and I love the concept of this one! I also remember reading a very early review and it was extremely positive, so my hopes are high.

Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3), by Laini Taylor
Duh. Who doesn't want to know how this all pans out?!

The Lovely and the Lost (The Dispossessed #2), by Page Morgan
The description is very vague as of now but I love the Gargoyle lore and glimpses of further world building, and I'm very curious to see where this  series is going.

Runners-up: Cruel Beauty (by Rosamund Hodge, I have an ARC), Tell the Wind and Fire (by Sarah Rees Brennan, apparently a modern retelling of A Tale of Two Cities), Strange and Ever After (Susan Dennard).

Okay, that's it! Do we have any picks in common? I'm very curious to see what people came up with and add some more to my TBR of upcoming books :)


  1. We have three the same this week! The Retribution of Mara Dyer, The Lovely and The Lost and Unhinged! I hope we both enjoy them :-)

  2. Between The Spark and the Burn and The Winner's Curse made my list too:) Nice picks!
    My TTT

  3. Oh, I'm totally jealous of you having an ARC of Cruel Beaty - it sounds so good! I'm also looking forward to The Winner's Circle. I love Marie Rutkoski, and I can't wait to see what she does with this book. :-)

    TTT @ Bibliophilia, Please

  4. Omg, I hadn't heard of Tell the Wind and Fire yet! *investigates*

  5. Fiendish sounds terrific (I always love the covers of her books), and I'm looking forward to Cruel Beauty as well. 2014 is going to be so much fun!

    My TTT

  6. I could not agree with you more on Throne of Glass #3 AND Dreams of Gods & Monsters *SQUEE* I almost can't stand the wait for either of those, I just want them in my life, in my hands and on my shelf LOL I also really want to read the second Dispossessed book too, as well as Cruel Beauty! Oh and sadly I still need to read Splintered but Unhinged looks incredible!! Great picks girl ^^

  7. Great list!I can't wait for Talon but I completely forgot to add it to my list.It sounds amazing.And I really need to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea before the sequel comes out!Thanks for stopping by my TTT.Happy reading!

  8. No way I could have ever narrowed my list down to ten, but I think every one on your list would have made mine. I am DYING to read The Winner's Curse and Between the Spark and the Burn. I have no idea how I'm going to get through all the books I want to read in 2014. :)
