2014 Releases I’m Eagerly Anticipating{TTT}

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

Cress

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

Landline

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

Free to Fall

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

Rebel

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

The Here and Now

Time traveling, the future, and epidemics? AND by Ann Brashares? Yeah, I’m anticipating.

6. This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready

This Side of Salvation

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

Fire and Flood

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.

Yes, please.

8. Split Second by Kasie West

Split Second

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

Dear Killer

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

Love Letters to the Dead

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.

  1. I’m so unsure about Rainbow Rowell novels. Both Fangirl and Eleanor and Park just don’t sound like “me” books, but I’m ridiculously interested to read “Attachments” because I work in IT and it sounds adorable. (No, we don’t monitor email.)

    I still haven’t read Cinder … please don’t hurt me!!!

    • stormydawnc

      I need to read Attachments, though I need to find a copy first. I think you might like Fangirl, but not sure I’d recommend Eleanor & Park. Eleanor & Park really wasn’t a “ME!” book either, but it ended up surprising me. To be honest, I think Eleanor & Park is probably better *written*, but Fangirl is just a great story(and not quite as depressing, though sad things happen).

      CINDER, though. . . *book pushes*. I have made three of my in real life friends(which is the majority, trust me) read Cinder, and they all loved it!

  2. Looking forward to Landline as well since I’ve heard good things about Rainbow Rowell’s works. I didn’t know that Ann Brashares is coming out with a new book! The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants seems like such a long time ago and I’m definitely game to read her latest. Personally though, I’m looking the most forward to Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved, which is about a girl who’s secret love letters get mailed to her former crushes and what happens after that.

    • stormydawnc

      Yeah, I heard about her new book a month or two ago! I’ve seen lots of list love for To All the Boys I’ve Loved. I’m eager to see what everyone thinks when that one comes out–it sounds intriguing but not my kind of read, but if the hype is good I’ll probably succumb.

  3. I am doing a Rainbow Rowell read-a-thon right now. I am sure once I am done, I will be counting the days until the next book of hers is published!

    • stormydawnc

      Oh, I’ve seen a few other people participating in that read-a-thon! I hope you enjoy her books–I absolutely love her writing style, especially for Fangirl.

    • stormydawnc

      Ah, yes, catch up and then be tortured with the rest of us while we wait for Cress! I loved Cinder, but I DOUBLE-LOVED Scarlet.

  4. Anonymous

    There Here And Now & Free To Fall are now the latest additions to my TBR! So many great books on this list 😀

    I’m going to read Pivot Point soon (it’s sitting on my bookshelf, staring at me), so hopefully I’ll loe it enough to get me excited for Split Second!

    My TTT 🙂

    • stormydawnc

      EEEH I hope you really enjoy Pivot Point! It’s one of the books that made me realize I REALLY love parallel universe stories.

    • stormydawnc

      ALL the great books seem to be coming out in 2014! I had a pretty great reading year this year, but I have a feeling(and a hope) that 2014 will be even better.

  5. I neeeeeeed Cress now! I’m glad you love this series, I do too. I can’t wait for Split Second, because Pivot Point was SO good. I haven’t read her contemporary book yet, but I’m planning to. I LOVE the cover for Love Letters to the Dead, I need that pretty on my shelves!

    • stormydawnc

      Yes! I’m so glad there’s only a few more months to wait for Cress. . . but those months definitely feel like too long at times. And I cannot WAIT to get my hands on Split Second. Kasie West has become one of my favorite writers and I’ve loved both books she released this year.

    • stormydawnc

      Eep I hope you enjoy it!(I hope I enjoy it to, for that matter, haha. I just find the cover so beautiful!)

    • stormydawnc

      Yes, I’m so excited to see where things wrap up in Rebel! I’m quite happy that it’s a duology instead of a trilogy.

  6. I agree with Cress and I won’t expand on that. We all love the Lunar Chronicles. But so excited for Fire&Flood! Victoria’s books sound amazing and I would have buy Dante Walker books but again, my budget is a big zero. I don’t even have the money for a bus ticket (yes, I am THAT broke). And my parents don’t seem to be excited to give me money for even more books. Those selfish people 😉

    • stormydawnc

      I’m really excited for Fire & Flood! I’ve heard great things about the Dante Walker books, but I don’t think there my type of books. I’ve been able to hear Victoria speak, though, and I was instantly intrigued, and since Fire & Flood seems right up my alley I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  7. Lianne @ caffeinatedlife.net

    Great list! Rowell’s Landline also made my list this week; while I still have yet to read her YA titles, I really loved Attachments and the premise for her latest novel sounds really interesting 🙂

    My TTT

    • stormydawnc

      Yes, I’m so excited for Landline! I need to read Attachments as well–I’ve had trouble finding a copy around here ANYWHERE, so it’s on my Christmas list for sure.

  8. I chose Cress, as well, and I imagine it’s going to be on a ton of lists this week!

    And I just got Reboot from the library, so I’m looking forward to seeing what all the hype is about!

    • stormydawnc

      Yes, I’ve been seeing Cress around all over the place!
      I hope you enjoy Reboot! I know a lot of people who LOVED it and a lot of people who were meh about it, so I think it really depends on what you want out of the story, but I personally was quite a fan!
