Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Theme of this week: Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To. I’ve wanted to do Top Ten Tuesday meme for ages already!! Now I finally didn’t miss it! Or I am not sure does it mean you can post this any day after the Tuesday too? Anyways… Book releases I wanted to read in 2014 but didn’t get to TT__T. In no particular order. Pictures kindly borrowed from Goodreads and The Broke and the Bookish :D

1. Panic by Lauren Oliver
Because I really liked all other books by Lauren Oliver: Delirium trilogy & Before I Fall so I want to see in what style she continues to write. Because the name of the book is interesting. Because so many have read it and liked it…

2. Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
Because it reminds me of Lana del Ray song:Gods and Monsters … I love this song Because it has lovely covers. Because I have read the previous parts. Because it’s what I call new kind of fantasy, something unique in the plot.

3. Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Because previous parts of Mercy Falls had very nice covers and werewolves had problems with adapting to the temperatures so it was something new. Because I can’t leave book series unfinished.

4. Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Because I want to finish the series. Because I like the author. Because I remember those two being separately in the covers but now they’re together.

5.Princess of Thorns Stacey Jay
Because it’s somehow hilarious to think that Sleeping Beauty’s daughter has a daughter and that she is warrior princess. Because I expect it to be really good.

7. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Because I haven’t read a single book of Marie Lu and I want to know what she writes and how! Because of the title! Because of the Goodreads quote: I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside...it sounded very hmmm revengous…

6. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Because twins are not that common in literature. Because it sounds interesting. Because the covers are almost messy.

 8. We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
Because it had so mixed reviews in Goodreads. Because there’s a mystery element and I haven’t read proper mystery in a long time (not sure if this is even a mystery book). Because I want to know why everyonewere so frustrated about the end of the book.

9. The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku
Because you gain deep understanding of whatever he writes about. Because this book will be the kicks. Because I want to understand more about how our brains function and more about for example “smart pill”. Because I love how logically Michio Kaku explains everything.

10. Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull
Because it’s kind of related to what I am studying. Because he was one of the guys who founded Pixar. Because I love Pixar movies. Because he worked with Steve Jobs and other greatnesses. Because it’s genius management in Pixar. Because I might get inspirated.

    I saw a Top Ten Tuesday post and found the name of your blog just under it!
    It’s a pleasant surprise to see you’re doing these now! You’ll see it’s super fun. :)

    And I’ll be honest.I have nothing much to say.
    I’m more into classics and winners and nominees of the Booker Prize,so besides We Were Liars,it’s the first time I’m seeing the titles aforementioned! :o

      :D How nice! Haha, yes I’ve wanted to for a long time but then my editing skills with pics and titles suck (as you can see the pics and text are all across the page despite the long fight of trying to make them appear neatly in one row…)

      I see, well hey maybe those will become classics of the future :) Oh, I love Booker prize books! Though I haven’t read any of the recent winners after The White Tiger. Hmm Pulitzer Prize for fiction and Costa Book Awards have also absolutely fantastic books sometimes.

      You don’t read nonfiction then?

      It does :D though of course sometimes covers of the books are more interesting than book themselves. Hope it’s not the case with Princess of Thorns. Oh, okay, yeah I hope so. Hate to be disappointed with books.
