Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2014 Releases I'm Dying to Read!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created & hosted @ The Broke and the Bookish. 
For more info about it, check out the post HERE.

 

So, My Top Ten+ 2014 Releases I'm Dying to Read are:


#1 - The Whispering Skull (Lockwood & Co. #2) by Jonathan Stroud

No cover available.
  
 
The Whispering Skull is the sequel of the amazing MG book The Screaming Staircase. This book was the biggest surprise for me this year - it was funny, scary, eerie & full of awesomeness, and the waiting for this sequel is killing me. 


#2 - The Sorcerer Heir (The Heir Chronicles #5) by Cinda Williams Chima

No cover available.

 
The Sorcerer Heir will be the last Heir Chronicles book, and I can't wait. I just know it will be as epic as the last Seven Realms book The Crimson Crown was, and the last book The Enchanter Heir totally hints at that :)


#3 - Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

 
No explanation necessary, if you've read Cinder & Scarlet, you know why I'm dying for this book.


#4 - Half-Off Ragnarok (InCryptid #3) by Seanan McGuire

     
I adore the InCryptid series, and I'm dying to read more of the adventures of the Price family. This book will be featuring Verity's brother Alex, and yeah, I can't wait. Sounds like another awesome read.


#5 - Red Blooded (Jessica McClain #4) by Amanda Carlson

No cover available.
 
 
One of the series I got hooked on this year is the Jessica McClain series. I love the world the author created, as well as the characters, and i can't wait to read more & see what else she has in store for Jess & the gang ;)


#6 - Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) by Jeaniene Frost

     
It will be so sad & hard to say goodbye to Cat & Bones, and the Night Huntress series itself, but at the same time, I can't wait, but I know it will be heartbreaking, I'm just hoping they'll get the HEA they deserve.


#7 - The Visitor (Graveyard Queen #4) by Amanda Stevens

No cover available.
 
  
The Graveyard Queen series is amazing, and one of my favs, so I've been dying to read more. Lets hope it won't get postponed once again, but even if it did, I know the waiting will be worth it.


#8 - Armada by Ernest Cline


Ready Player One is my most fav book ever, so of course I can't wait to read Ernest Cline's next book, and Armada sounds great!
 

#9 - The Darkest Touch (Lords of the Underworld #11) by Gena Showalter

No cover available.

 
I love the Lords of the Underworld series, and although I'm actually one book behind (I still need to read Kane's book), The Darkest Touch will be Torin's book, and I can't wait to see what Gena Showalter has come up with for Torin & hopefully his HEA.


#10 - Witch Finder (Witch Finder #1) by Ruth Warburton

  
I loved Ruth Warburton's Winter Trilogy, and this duology is set in the same world, only earlier & with different characters, so it's a prequel in a way, and I can't wait to read it.


#11 - Burning Dawn (Angels of the Dark #3) by Gena Showalter

   
Angels of the Dark is a spin-off series of the Lords of the Underworld, and although I've read (and loved) only the 1st book, I already can't wait to read this one, because it will be Thane's book, and from all the angels I met in the 1st book, I got most intrigued by Thane as a character, so yeah, I'm dying here. In the meantime, I'll just have to settle for reading Koldo's story, which I can't wait to read also, and planning to pick it up any day now.


#12 - A World Without Princes (The School for Good & Evil #2) by Soman Chainani

  
I loved, loved The School for Good & Evil, it was so imaginative & full of awesomeness, so I can't wait to see what the author has in store next.


#13 - The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab

  
I love the imaginative stories Victoria Schwab creates, so I can't to read this sequel of The Archived.


#14 - It Happened One Wedding (FBI/US Attorney #5) by Julie James

  
I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, but Julie James is one of my fav authors when it comes to this genre, and I adore the series, and this will be Vaughn's book, so I can't wait, I know it will be so much fun :)


#15 - Once in a Lifetime (Lucky Harbor #9) by Jill Shalvis

  
I adore the Lucky Harbor series, and Once in a Lifetime will be Ben & Aubrey's book, so I can't wait to get my hands on this book :)


#16 - Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek #6) by Brenda Novak

  
I can't say that I'm a fan of the Whiskey Creek series, I've read only the prequel novella & the first 2 books, and I enjoyed them quite a lot, so I'm quite behind, and most of the books in the series seem to feature mostly broken characters in a way, and that's not actually something I'm always ready to read about, but still I'm dying to read Come Home to Me, because the MCs are characters that I met in the 2nd book, and although they're quite broken (especially Presley), my heart was breaking for them in the 2nd book, so I'd love to see them get a HEA, so yeah, I'm dying to read this book.


#17 - The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey

No cover available.

 
The 5th Wave was a great read that I loved, so of course I can't wait to read the sequel, too.
 

#18 - Lady Thief (Scarlet #2) by A. C. Gaughen


Even though I wasn't a fan of the love triangle in Scarlet, I still loved the book, so I can't wait to read Lady Thief.


#19 - Code Zero (Joe Ledger #6) by Jonathan Maberry

  
Despite this being the 6th Joe Ledger novel, it's actually a direct sequel to Patient Zero, so I'm dying to read Code Zero, even though I still haven't read books 2-5, because I loved Patient Zero, although I will probably read the other books in the series before this one is published.

 
 #20 - Noggin by John Corey Whaley
  

  
I loved John Corey Whaley's debut Where Things Come Back, so I've been waiting for him to publish another book since then, and finally there will be one in 2014, and Noggin sounds so interesting & unique, so I'm really excited about it, despite the weird cover, although it definitely fits the book from the description.


#21 - Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

 
No explanation necessary, you're probably all waiting for this book, too ;) While reading Anna & the French Kiss, I really liked Josh, and I remember thinking that I'd love a book with him, so when it was announced that there will be one featuring both Isla & Josh, I was so happy, so yeah, the waiting has been long, but it doesn't matter, as long as it is worth it in end, I'll wait as long as it takes :)



I know this was a long list, but these are all books that I'm really dying to read, and I didn't even include every 2014 release I'm interested in, just those I want the most & dying to get my hands on. Of course some of these might get postponed for the next year, but it is what it is...

  12. Agh! These are almost all books from series I have not started yet but am dying to get to! I figure I should try and wrap up the billion I'm reading now that have released new books before starting new ones though :(. The New Year is coming! (And maybe awesome Christmas presents? My aunt reads YA which is pretty awesome)

  14. So many cool picks -- I want to read the 5th Wave sequel too. Wonder where it can go from here.

    I'm such a big School for Good and Evil fan. Did you notice that the cover looks more adult than the first? Wonder if that's on purpose

    1. Yeah, I noticed that, and I think it was on purpose, maybe the 2nd book will be more of YA than MG ;)
