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.
