Top 10 Books I Read In 2014

1 Play Me Backwards by Adam Selzer All snark and heart. 

2 Scarlet & Lady Thief by AC Gaughen This series bleeds awesome. I need Lion Heart now.

3 Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White Made me remember I like Paranormal stories.

4 Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley Glorious sense of place. It earned that "P" on the cover.

5 Deathless by Catherynne Valente Beautifully written. I'm still dazzled.

6 The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Reading Dorian's downfall for the first time was so gorgeous and so grotesque. Perfection.

7 The Half Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno  YA Psychological done right. 

8 Lothaire by Kresley Cole It's got Lothaire. Potentially the best book in the series?

9 Past The Shallows by Favel Parrett This read like a love letter to the ocean.

10 Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios I officially love Jinn and Heather's new series!


  1. Scarlett and Lady Thief have such beautiful covers. I haven't read any of these, thanks for the recommendation. Here is my list!
    My list

  2. Oh, wow, Where Things Come Back - I love that book! And I loved Scarlet, too, though I still haven't read Lady Thief. Great list!

  3. Exquisite Captive sounds amazing! I love Heather's writing style, so I'm sure Exquisite Captive will be great. The Half Life of Molly Pierce also seems really intriguing. I took psychology last year, so it's interesting reading psychological books.

  4. I sadly haven't read any of these although I do have Exquisite Captive waiting for me on my kindle. Love genies so I must read it! I also need to read Illusions of Fate. Love Kiersten White.

    Thanks for stopping by my Best Books I’ve Read in 2014

  8. Very nice list! I really like some of your choices, like The Half Life of Molly Pierce. There were a few I've never heard of before. ;) Thanks for sharing!

  9. Play Me Backwards and Illusions of Fate are two books I wish I had gotten to read this year! I heard so much about them. Hopefully I'll get to them next year. :)

  10. Scarlet was such a fantastic read. Cannot wait for the final in the trilogy! I'm also trying to read more classics, and The Picture of Dorian Gray was one of the books that I finished this year - so creepy and twisted but very compelling!

  11. Great list! I have yet top read any of these books but most are on my tbr list and others I will check out. Thank you for stopping by! Happy holidays :)

  12. Those look like some awesome books! I have wanted to read Illusions of Fate for a long time - I have seen some amazing reviews for it :D
