Top Ten 2014 Releases I'm Dying To Read

I tried to keep these YA 2014 releases to debut series because I gushed SO MUCH in this post about 2014 sequels.

I say this every year…but 2014 is going to be THE year for YA lit!!

Top Ten 2014 Releases I’m Dying To Read

The-Winners-Curse marie rutkoski 2014 releases ya

1Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo- This is the book that I absolutely must read next year. I am excited and terrified all at the same time.

2Half Bad by Sally Green- This book sounds like a breath of fresh air. I haven’t read an interesting witch/black magic type of book in a loooong time.

3Deception’s Princess by Esther M. Friesner- YES!! This puts me in mind of Juliet Marillier – love the celtic, mythology spin. Also, fierce heroine alert!!

4Salvage by Alexandra Duncan- Deep space and fleeing a male-dominated world, the plot has officially intrigued me. Another awesome debut series.

5Dangerous by Shannon Hale- I would read anything Shannon Hale writes. This book seems VERY different than her normal type of writing. The description is vague, but I’m already invested.

6Panic by Lauren Oliver- I’m willing to forgive Oliver for the ending of Requiem and start fresh with something new. This dystopia series sounds right up my alley.

7The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski- After getting some serious buzz, I’m SUPER INTERESTED in this story. When people throw around Kristin Cashore’s name, I take notice.

8Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi- I cannot believe this series will conclude here. I loved the novella form Warner’s perspective, so I think I’ve officially picked a team. Ugh, dying!!!!

9Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- Another day, another Beauty and the Beast retelling. I’m ok with this one though because it definitely has a dar, sexy twist!

10Avalon by Mindee Arnett- Arnett won me over with The Nightmare Affair and now more scifi from her is A-OK with me. Plus, it sounds very Ender’s Game with its depiction of “teenage mercenaries.”

What 2014 debuts are you DYING to read??

    Ruin and Rising and Panic are both on my TBR list! I haven’t read Requiem yet, but I’m scared since I’ve seen many unhappy comments about it! Oh and I still need to star the Shatter Me series. Great list!
