Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which features (you guessed it!) top ten lists on a given topic each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten 2014 releases I’m looking forward to.
1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
We’ve gone through this one, so I won’t spend very much time on it, because if you’ve been around my blog before, you know how much I LOVE the Lunar Chronicles. NEEED Cress!
2. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
I have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell novel I didn’t LOVE, and I’m so excited about Landline. I’m a little weary of the synopsis, since the main conflict seems to be someone trying to save their marriage, which isn’t normally a topic that interest me, but the twist about the landline and the author makes this one jump on to this list.
3. Free to Fall by Lauren Miller
I am not a fan of this cover, but I AM a fan of Lauren Miller’s previous book, Parallel, and this one sounds SO interesting. All about free choice and freedom and technology? Sign me up!
4. Rebel by Amy Tintera
I’ve already talked about this one in the sequels I’m anticipating Top Ten Tuesday, but I definitely AM anticipating it! I’m eager to see Wren and Callum again and find out how their story ends.
5. The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
Time traveling, the future, and epidemics? AND by Ann Brashares? Yeah, I’m anticipating.
6. This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
This one sounds so interesting! A character struggling with his parent’s new found faith and then their disappearance in “the Rush”? I haven’t read anything by this author previously, but the cover certainly caught my attention.
7. Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott
I was never interested in The Collector–just didn’t seem like my kind of book–but Fire and Flood appealed to me because of the cover, to be honest. This was the line from the synopsis that made me sit up and pay attention:
It’s an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother’s illness.
8. Split Second by Kasie West
Ah, I want this one so much! Another one I’ve already featured, but really, I am SUPER excited to read another Kasie West book.
9. Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell
I’ve already read an ARC of this book from Edelweiss, but I REALLY want the finished copy. This book completely blew me away by how really DEEP it got and how it didn’t shy away from so hard topics. It was so interesting to see Kit navigate her moral nihilism and see when her life threatened to crumble.
10. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
I have a feeling this one is going to be really emotional and make me cry, but it sounds SO good and the beautiful cover doesn’t hurt.
