Top 10 of 2014 Day 1: Best Books I've Read in 2014

I haven't participated in this before, but it's always looked like so much fun! Here are my top ten books that I read in 2014:

1) On The Fence by Kasie West: As always with Kasie West, this was an amazing read. It's so adorable and the perfect book to cheer you up! 

On the Fence

2) Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi: Ignite Me was so beautifully written and it's the best series conclusion that I've ever read. I'm planning to eventually reread this series.  

Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)

3) The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel: I loved this dystopian, and it's definitely one of the more unique ones. Bishop is such an sweet guy and after that cliffhanger, I need the next book.

The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy, #1)

4) Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross: This crosses over both the young adult and new adult genres and it was incredible :) I thought the way baseball was incorporated into the story was really cool, too. 

Whatever Life Throws at You

5) Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout: I am Team Roth for sure. He's hilarious and can be super sweet, especially around Layla. I'm excited to see who Layla will choose in the final book. 
Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements, #2)
6) Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover: This was my favorite new adult novel of the entire year! It's such an emotional read and the characters are extremely well developed. My emotions were tugged every way they could be with this book.
Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1)

7) Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols: I've always enjoyed Jennifer Echols' books, but I especially love this series! Biggest Flirts is a super cute contemporary and I couldn't put it down. There's plenty of humor and romance throughout, too ;) 

Biggest Flirts (Superlatives, #1)

8) Camp Boyfriend by J.K Rock: Camp Boyfriend is the perfect summer read! It brought back so many great memories of summer camp and the relationships that come out of it. 
Camp Boyfriend (Camp Boyfriend, #1)

9) All Lined Up by Cora Carmack: I wasn't a big fan of her Losing It series (at least the books I read from it), but I ended up really enjoying All Lined Up! Maybe I just like new adult books that incorporate a sport? :p

All Lined Up (Rusk University, #1)

10) Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley: This book was so entertaining and gave me a bunch of flashbacks to Cadet Kelly ;) The realism definitely shone through and I'd recommend this book to anyone, even if you're not a huge fan of contemporaries. 

Rites of Passage

  6. I've read so many stellar reviews for The Book of Ivy, and am not surprised in the least to see it on so many peeps' year end lists. It's been a while since I checked out one of JLA's novels; I should get on that already! Thanks for stopping by today! :)

  7. Yay, another Jennifer Armentrout fan! ;) Two of my favorites books of the year were White Hot Kiss and Biggest Flirts. All great choices!

  8. Great picks! But sadly, I haven't read any of them! :( BUT, I did read SHATTER ME and can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series, and see who Juliet picks in the finale of IGNITE ME! ;) And I've been DYING to read THE BOOK OF IVY!! I'm so glad to see it was that good that it made your top ten faves!

  11. I've read about half of your list, and I agree! They're all awesome! I only JUST got on the Kasie West bandwagon, but her books are just wonderful. Ohhh, and Ignite Me! Such a great way to end the series. :) Great picks!!
