I don’t usually partake in Top Ten Tuesday (too many blog posts not enough time!) but when I saw this week’s topic was “most anticipated 2014 reads” I couldn’t help myself. 2014 looks like it’s shaping up to be an amazing year for book lovers. Here are some of the titles I can’t wait to get my hands on!
The Martian by Andy Weir. February 11, (Crown)
Pitched as Castaway meets Apollo 13. Recommended if you enjoyed the movie Gravity.
Cress by Marissa Meyer. February 24. (Feiwel & Friends)
The third book in The Lunar Chronicles. One of my favourite series.
Death Sworn by Leah Cypress. March 4. (Greenwillow)
A new high fantasy series from the author of the Mistwood books
Panic by Lauren Oliver. March 4. (HarperCollins)
New Lauren Oliver book! Drop everything!
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. April 1. (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
The story of a girl coping with the death of her sister by writing letters to dead celebrities. And it’s blurbed by Stephen Chbosky!
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor. April 8. (Little Brown & Co.)
The final book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy!
The Inventor’s Secret by Andrea Cremer. April 22. (Philomel)
It wouldn’t be a good year if there wasn’t some steampunk to look forward to
Landline by Rainbow Rowell. July 8. (St Martin’s)
Attachments, Eleanor & Park and Fangirl have all earned Rainbow Rowell a place on my auto-buy list. With Landline she’s back in Contemporary Adult Fiction land and I can’t wait.
Illusive by Emily Lloyd Jones. July 15. (Little Brown Books)
The comic book fan in me is all over this book about a group of “super” criminals
Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard. July 22. (HarperCollins)
The final book in Something Strange and Deadly series. (One of my current favourites)
Ok I know, I cheated, there’s actually 12 on this list. But I couldn’t narrow it down any further! And this only goes until July! There’s still the third Raven Cycle book, Julie Kagawa’s new series, Talon, Winterspell by Claire LeGrand…the list goes on and on.
