Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t

GAH. This post is kind of embarrassing! Like, how did I NOT read these?!

Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t

a thousand pieces of you top books i meant to read in 2014

1. Falling into Place by Amy Zhang- This book seemed emotional and deep, and I really wish I’d gotten a chance to read it last year. I have a physical copy, so there’s still time!

2. The Body Electric by Beth Revis – Revis self-published this title, using momentum from her previous work. I was really interested in the premise too.

3. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey- This is a situation where I saw a few negative reviews and lost all energy. I still am curious about what happens, but I want to avoid being disappointed.

4. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira- By the time this book came out, I think I needed a break from depressing/sad books. But, it’s still on mah list.

5. Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios- After I’ll Meet You There, I’ll read anything Demetrios writes! It’s funny I read her 2015 book before her 2014 one. Typical.

6. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin- Again, mixed reviews kept me away.

7. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray- I love alternate universe type stories lately, so I hope to pick this one back up soon.

8. Infinite by Jodi Meadows- As the final book in the Newsoul series, I wanted to see how everything got tied up. GAH!

9. Raging Star by Moira Young- Ok, I really did mean to finish this one. But…I just don’t know if I can do it. Can someone just tell me what happens?

10. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld- Interested but intimidated by all those pagessss (608!!)

What books were you meaning to read but never did last year?

    Great list! The Body Electric made my list, too. I also really want to read A Thousand Pieces of You — such a gorgeous cover!!


  • Mawa Mahima

    Wow…A Thousand Pieces of You wins Best Cover Ever by far!

  • Brittany Welsh

    The Infinite Sea was a disappointment for me. 🙁

  • Ash of Typing Tiara

    I haven’t gotten to any of those yet though I’m really tempted by Afterworlds…I just have a bad case of flip-flopping every time I go to buy it. Maybe this will be it’s year for me.

    Happy reading!

  • Love Letters to the Dead was definitely sad/depressing, but it was good! Hope you get a chance to read it soon! 😀

  • I love your list. 3/4 of your list is MY list, lol 🙂

  • Jolien @ The Fictional Reader

    I really want to read A Thousand Pieces of You, The Infinite Sea and The Walled City too! 😀

    Great list!

  • Kayla @ The Thousand Lives

    Ooohh I thought The Infinite Sea was ten times better than The 5th Wave! I hope you give it a try eventually 🙂

    I haven’t read any of Demetrios’s books, but I have Something Real and soon will have I’ll Meet You There. If I love both, I’m sure I’ll check out Exquisite Captive too!

    The Body Electric disappointed. Think it should have been tightened up or something. I kept getting bored. I almost finished it but ended up reading the last chapter to see what happened, shocking!
