Top Ten Tuesday #11: Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. This meme is created and hosted at The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there is a new top ten list for bloggers to take part in and enjoy!

1. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

I enjoyed every single aspect of this book. The setting, the mystery, the romance, the characters. Couldn't put it down!

2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass

I read Throne of Glass during summer vacation. I was so engrossed by its sheer awesomeness that I rarely managed to close it and actually socialise. My best friends were a little annoyed by me... In short, it was so good!

3. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

I couldn't stop thinking about this book after I had finished reading it. It had grabbed me from page 1 and didn't let me go. I loved how it captured people's need for survival and how dark and deep it was. Loved it. 

4. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

I loved everything about this book. The action, the suspense, the romance. It made me laugh, swoon and even cry (Seriously. The day I picked it up, I actually burst into tears by reading the first sentence because I realised it was the end of my favourite series... I'm such a crybaby..). This was one of the series that introduced me to the YA genre and its conclusion was as epic as I expected it to be.

5. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss never fails to leave me feeling all fluffy and wonderful inside! I just love it!

6. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

One of my favourite dystopians. The writing was amazing and the characters very complex and interesting. One of the best Dystopians I've read in a while.

7. Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

I cannot really explain how this book made me feel (and that's one of the reasons I will not post a review for it). It marked the end of a series that entertained me and kept me company since the age of 7. I couldn't find a flaw in it even if I wanted to.

8. The Fault in our Stars by John Green

I read The Fault in our Stars in preparation for the movie and even though it killed me a little bit inside it also made me laugh quite a few times. It is one of the most beautiful stories I've ever read and I plan to re-read it again soon. 

9. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I've come to understand that Cassandra Clare's books always manage to earn a seat on my favourites self. Maybe it's her amazing writing. Maybe it's her ability to create swoon-worthy guys. We may never know...

10. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Dark and spooky accompanied by an intense romance, how could The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer not be on my top ten of 2014! It made me laugh, cringe and blush! Loved it!


  1. TOG, CoHF, Darkest Minds, Mara Dyer, Clockwork Angel and TFIOS are SO AWESOME!!!!


    Great List!

    1. Thank you! I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did :D

  2. The Blood of Olympus made my list too, I was so excited yet saddened by it. (Since it was amazing, but it was the end of the series). I also read TFIOS this year, and it was one of the only books that has ever made me cry, even though I knew what was coming. The Kiss of Deception and Throne of Glass have been on my TBR spreadsheet for as long as I can remember, and I'm so anxious to get to them. Well, nice picks and I hope you also encounter more great reads in 2015:)

    1. Thank you so much! Tfios was the first book that made me actually wail for almost half an hour.... it was bad. You should definitely pick up The Kiss of Deception and Throne of Glass! They are the kind of books that will capture you from page one :D

  3. TFIOS is such a great book, isn't it? I haven't seen the movie yet. I'm a little bit afraid since Hollywood usually kills my favorite books :( I did read Esther Earl's book this year -- it was very touching.

    Happy TTT!

    1. A great book indeed! You should definitely go see the movie! One of the best book-to-movie adaptations in my opinion. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgot did a wonderful job portrating Hazel and Gus! I really want to read Esther Earl's book! Haven't got to it yet but I'm planning to :D
