1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge.

That cover is one of the best of 2014. Like, I saw it, and said Wow, out loud. Amazing. And the concept sounds like something I would like — so I am eager to get my hands on a copy of this novel.

2. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.

This is releasing early September — but in short, I really, really, really, really, want a copy of this novel. I mean, after that cliffhanger of an ending that . . .

3. Ignite me by Tahereh Mafi.

The main reason I haven’t read this one yet is because of the Australian version of the cover. I mean, is there anyone out there who actually likes it? Yes, I know, I’m being really picky, but I am just not a fan of it. However I do want to know what happens in this final novel.

4. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead.

I have this reserved at my library. I really do want to read this — I do — but I do have my misgivings about it.

5.  Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

I need me some Daemon.

6. Split Second by Kasie West.

I really enjoyed the first in the series. So I am curious to see where this novel will go.

7. Defy by Sara B. Larson.

I have not seen this around anywhere — so it looks like I might be ordering it online. From what I can tell from other reviews that I’ve read, it sounds like a pretty fun sort of fantasy.

8. Kiss of Deception Mary Pearson.

There’s quite a bit of hype surrounding this one! So overly much so that it’s putting me off the novel, but just enough for me to keep an eye out when I go to the bookstore or library. And also, I really love that cover.

9. Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor.

Confession time: I haven’t read the second in the series. I’m waiting for the edition to be released that I want that will match my current ones before I read the second novel. Also I’m afriad that the second won’t live up to the first.

10. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard.

This series recently just finished, I think. Ordinarily, steampunk isn’t something that I would usually go for . . . but I am interested!

Okay, so really, this list could have gone on for a lot longer, however I managed to restrain myself by keeping to the ten. In other words, there are a lot of books that I really really really want to read that I don’t yet own. And honestly, this is mainly because I haven’t seen them around at my bookstores — I don’t even know if some of things have been/will be published in Australia.

  1. First of all, perfect GIF at the end there. A++ :) I am envious of you gif-ing abilities. I also have Heir of Fire on my list – I NEED TO READ IT SOON OR I WILL DIE. Ahem. Bit dramatic, there. I’d also like to read Split Second because Pivot Point looks really lonely up on my shelf without its partner :( I wasn’t BLOWN AWAY by Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I’d still really like to read the second one.

    *adds ALL the books to my TBR*

  2. I love the Yoda gif. I know Yoda’s supposed to be all serious and everything, but he’s so cute! I don’t know what any of these books are about (please don’t throw any rotten tomatoes at me. I’m just not really up to date with all of these newly released YA books), but everyone is raving about the series that Heir of Fire is in, so it might be worth a look.

    • YES, YES, YES YOU MUST READ THRONE OF GLASS. Those books are amazing; I would recommend them in a heartbeat. When I was searching for gifs, I saw the Yoda one, and it just seemed so perfect, I couldn’t resist putting it in this blog post. :D

  3. CRUEL BEAUTY MAN. THAT BOOK WAS GOOD. The description was good, and the storyline was good, but the relationships in it were so weird and confusing. I almost want to say instalove, but I can’t because it really wasn’t… I don’t know. You should read it though! I’d love to hear what you thought about it.

    Ignite Me. I’ve told you this on Twitter and I’ll tell you again: PLEASE READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST BOOK TO EVER GRACE YA. Not really, but Warner is pretty much my all time favorite book boyfriend, so… I’m a bit biased since this is a Warner book.

    Great list!

  4. *raises hand* I HEAR YOU ON THE IGNITE ME COVER. I own it with that cover. ‘Scuse me while I gag. -_- Sometimes I don’t understand what the designers were thinking…heh.

    I want Heir of Fire so so badly too!! I think I’m going to buy it when it comes out instead of going kindle. I just NEED it physically in my hands. Kindle doesn’t cut it for a series I’m one million percent obsessed with. ;-)
    I never really got on well with Defy. It had a weird love-triangle, and kind of paused the ENTIRE plot just to mesh out love-interests. Then when it got sorted, the plot took off again. Saywhat. o.O
    Something Strange and Deadly was pleasantly awesome, not my typical read, but it has some funny moments. XD

    • I just couldn’t bring myself to buy Ignite Me with that cover! O.o That sounds horrible, I know, but urgh, that cover? No thanks! Me, too about Heir of Fire — there is no way I’ll buy a digital edition (which I rarely do anyway), the cover is just. so. damn. pretty. Huh. Hearing a few mixed things about Defy… I think I’ll probably read it anyway, just so I can make my own decision on it. ;)

  5. I really want to read Cruel Beauty too, actually I’ve already have it but I always found something else to read. I read Silver Shadows right after it was released and I really liked it, I was a bit disappointed in Adrian (which was a huge surprise because I love him) but besides that it was good. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Kiss of Deception, I’ve read another book from this author and it was amazing so I guess I’ll like this too. I enjoyed all the books from the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy but the third was the best, I hope you’ll love it too, actually I hope you’ll love all the books from this list. :)
    Amazing list!
    Here’s mine:

  6. Cruel beauty ended up being one of my favorite books from this year! I’m also VERY excited for Heir of fire. I will be rereading Crown of midnight soon. I recently bought Split Second and I can’t wait to get started. Dreams of gods and monsters was AMAZING and if I wasn’t lazy today I would have included Something strange & deadly on my list too :)
