BEST Books I Read in 2014

Overall, I'd say 2014 was a good reading year. I mean, I had to lower my Goodreads challenge twice (hehe) and I didn't read as many books as last year. However, I do feel like I've read better books this year, mostly due to the fact that I've become better at discerning which books I'd like and which I wouldn't.

Anyway, here are my top books of 2014! Not all of them were published this year, but I did read all of them in the past year.

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)Crushed (Soul Eater, #2)Haze (The Rephaim, #2)Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)Strange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly, #3)

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)BrazenRevolution

The Truth About AliceI'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls, #1)

**I binged the entire Gallagher Girls series, except the last one (and adored all of them).

What were the best books you read in 2014?


  1. I absolutely loved Cress and The Winner's Curse! I've heard great things about Stolen Songbird, I hope to read it soon. Nice picks!

  2. Me too for The Winner's Curse, Stolen Songbird and Cress! All absolutely fantastic reads. :) And I've heard great things about The Truth About Alice - I just haven't had the courage to pick it up because of the sensitive subject matter, but this might have been just the push I needed. ;)

    Thanks for the recap Summer! ♥

    I loved the Winner's Curse as well! It was hands down one of my favorites of the year and I can't wait until The Winner's Crime is released! I need to know what happens to Kestrel and Arin.

  4. Stolen Songbird and The Winner's Curse seem to be a lot of people's favorites. I should give them a try next year :)

  5. Omg yesss Haze was so freaking amazing! I absolutely love Paula Weston's series--cannot wait for book 4 >.< The Winner's Curse is definitely a 2014 favourite of mine too--the rooooomance *swoons*

  7. Thanks! Stolen Songbird was absolutely fantastic, if you're a fan of fantasy you'll love it!

  8. You're welcome, Zoe! I gave TTAA 4 stars for some reason, but it was great and handled the issue pretty well.

  9. I neeeeeed The Winner's Crime, like, now.

  10. I still haven't read Shimmer because it hasn't released in the US yet--but after Haze's ending? I needs it.

    Thanks, Melanie!
