Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Releases I'm Dying To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I heart lists!

In the End (In the After #2) by Demitria Lunetta

I really loved the first half of In the After - and that the relationship was more of a sisterly bond than a romance was a huge plus for me.  Lunetta's series is much more science-fiction than the usual dystopian, and I enjoyed that element a hugely.  I can't wait to see what happens to Amy in In the End!

After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum

Although I wasn't the biggest fan of Plum's Revenants series, I really enjoyed the first book, and her unique imagination really captivated me.

I mean, it's about a girl who was brought up thinking the rest of the world was an apolcalyptic wasteland and then *dum dum dummmmmm* it wasn't!.  I'm so curious about this one....

The Forever Song (Blood of Eden #3) by Julie Kagawa

I loved the first book, enjoyed the second one, and through both I was a huge fan of both Allie and Kagawa's world-building.  Although I'm not the biggest fan of vamires, I can't wait to see how this series ends.

The Haven by Carol Lynch Williams

I'm almost over getting excited for dystopians, but I loved Lynch Williams' The Chosen One, so I'm super curious about how she writes a dystopian world.  Plus with several books in prose, I'm hoping the writing will be gorgeous.

Salvage by Alexandra Duncan

Young Adult Science Fiction!  And it's set in outer-space, with hints of post-apocalyptic story lines, and I've heard whispers that there's polygamy.  I am so excited for this one.  And it's PRETTY.

Split Second (Pivot Point #2) by Kasie West

I don't need to explain this choice to those that have read Pivot Point.  To those that haven't - you should get on that.  One of the best parallel-lives themed books I've read, ever.  Oh, Trevor!

Landry Park (Landry Park #1) by Bethany Hagen

Oh hello Downton Abbey, science-fiction, post-apocalyptic-y sounding book with influences of The Selection.  WAIT.  Scratch that last bit, I'm going to pretend I never saw that comparison.  However, the rest sounds awesome, AND it's already been on my wishlist since October 2012.  Release, already!

The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters

Still shrouded in mystery, no cover, no real synopsis, but I loved Winters' In the Shadow of Blackbirds so I'm going to continue stalking this one mercilessly.

Sunrise (Ashfall #3) by Mike Mullin

I really like this series because it's pure post-apocalyptic - there's no dystopian government that caused the world to collapse, it's a natural disaster with loads of survival elements.  I'm so curious to see what happens next and how the series ends.

Bleed Like Me by Christa Desir

Desir's Fault Line was probably one of the best YA realistic fiction novels that I read in 2013, with shocking honesty and flawed characters.  Although Bleed Like Me is about a destructive relationship that already makes me feel edgy, I'm excited to see what Desir does with this storyline.

Argh this list made me so excited for next year to just BE HERE ALREADY.  What are you looking forward to reading in 2014?

    Salvage looks BEAUTIFUL! that one has not crossed my radar yet *Switches to GRs and adds immediately!*

    Also, I saw that Amy Plum is coming out with a new series. And while it looks and sounds pretty awesome, I then remember the writing style of the Revenants series and cringe. I will probably try it to see if it is better (for me), but it's not something I am DYING for.

    And Landry Park sounds great, too! Sheesh, today will be a day where my TBR list grows exponentially! =)

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. I need to read Pivot Point. I read the first two chapters but then had to return it to the library. I can't wait for After the end of Bleed Like Me. So many amazing books beling released next year!

  3. I am nervous about Split Second for some reason! I think the concept of the first novel just BARELY worked, and I let it slide because I so enjoyed reading it...but what if the sciency wiency stuff doesn't make sense! That woudl be terrible!

    See? Nervous!

    Kate @ The Midnight Garden

  4. I have yet to read Pivot Point but will probably get to it soon because the synopsis is utterly compelling and unique. I can't wait for In the End either, Amy is a seriously badass protagonist and I really loved seeing the bond between her and Baby too.

    Here's my list:


  5. Nice picks! I totally forgot about Landry Park. I am very curious about that one, looks good!

    Happy reading!

  6. Great list! Although none of these made on my list, I'm looking forward to most of them :)


  7. I'm excited for Salvage too! I didn't put it on my list, since there's a debut list coming up soon. :D

    Great picks! Sunrise and Split Second made my list as well, really need to start those series! I'm excited to get to all of them next year. Was so excited to get an arc of After The End, it sounds like such an exciting read. My TTT

  9. Awesome list! Looking forward to the majority of these!

  10. Oooh, going to be adding several more to my list after reading this! Can't wait for In the End. I need to read Pivot Point soon. Have had it on the list for a while but haven't gotten it yet. Everyone seems to like it so much though so I'm not sure why I haven't read it yet.
