    You actually added almost all of my favourites so I was thinking damn, I think I won’t be entering the giveaway cause I have all of these! But then I saw I pair I don’t have and I really want to read! 😉 I think the only one I’m missing in your list that’s on mine is A Mad Wicked Folly!

    Thanks for the giveaway, Kristen!

  2. says

    Ahh! I have always wanted to read Cress and Free To Fall. I haven’t read any of the ones in the list though, so I dunno if they are my favorite or not 😉

  3. Ellie Robinson says

    I loved heir of fire but haven’t read quite a few of your favorites but have been really wanting to get Snow Like Ashes and Jackaby.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. says

    OMG yes to ALL these but especially Heir of Fire & Jackaby! I also loved Unhinged and Cruel Beauty and These Broken Stars and The Museum of Extraordinary Things. So many good books this year but next will be just as fabulous!

  5. says

    I’m so happy to see Bitter Greens on your list! I have yet to read it, so I better pull it off my shelf and add it to my TBR now 🙂
    I’m looking forward to Princess of Thorns – happy to see retellings 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  6. Valerie Pennington says

    I have only read Princess of Thorns (which I LOVED) but I want to read most of the books you put down! My favorite book of the year was Compulsion by Martina Boone. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. erinf1 says

    *hangshead* I actually haven’t read any of these… I had a very poor reading year and I just stuck to favs authors and didn’t branch out to any new ones. But I’m excited to finally get time to start reading! Definitely going to have to check these all out! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  8. Susan T. says

    How about Kiersten White’s Illusions of Fate? I haven’t read it yet but really want to! I’ve only read Cress off of your list and it was pretty great.

  9. Evette Torres says

    There are a few that I liked on your list. Some others not on your list are Elusion by Claudia Gabel, Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige, Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee, Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi, Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor, Half Bad by Sally Green, The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, Unhinged by A.G. Howard, Uninvited by Sophie Jordan, Hollow City by Ransom Riggs and quite a few others. 🙂

  10. Kelsy says

    OMG YES YOU DID! I feel like we have relatively the same tastes in books 😉 I loved The Kiss of Deception, I just finished reading it. I have The Winner’s Curse, Cress, Princess of Thorns, The Perilous Sea, Snow Like Ashes, in my TBR pile and I wasn’t sure about The Falconer since I’ve read a lot of negative reviews about it but now it’s definitely near the top of the list of books I want to buy and read next, and I think I’ve seen The Ring and the Crown but was never intrigued enough to read the synopsis, but now I am! and it joins The Falconer on the list. Thank you! I haven’t been able to read much this year so I can’t really say if there’s any more books that you’ve left out but you have an awesome list already. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  11. Denise C. says

    You actually included some of my to-read books (The Kiss of Deception & The Ring and the Crown) and some of my favorite books (Cress & Snow Like Ashes)! The books not on your list that I like are The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, Hollow City by Ransom Riggs and The Young Elites by Marie Lu 🙂

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  12. says

    I really enjoyed The Perilous Sea and Ruin and Rising but I haven’t read any of the others besides Heir of Fire, which I’m still only half done with. My personal favorites of the year are Cruel Beauty, Of Metal and Wishes and Illusions of Fate.

  13. Ana Death Duarte says

    I am starting Kiss of Deception. I hope I love it like most people did :3 Thanks so much for the giveaway and the chance to win. Mostly I did not read books published in 2014 this year, so, my favourite reads this years are kinda old… was taking the dust off my bookshelves hehehehe 😉

  14. says

    Amazing post Kristen. <3 So many amazing books you have read this year 😀 I have read 121, I think, so almost the same as you, lol. <3 I would love to win Jackaby, probably 😀 I'm not ready to think about my favorites yet, lol. Just my recent favorite: The Map to Everywhere. <3 SO GOOD. I hope 2015 will be lots better for you sweetie. Hugs. <3 thank you for this amazing giveaway 🙂

    So many of my favorites are on there! What fabulous taste you have 😉 Heir of Fire has been my favorite, but I also LOVE Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White. Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Ashley says

    I think Landline by Rainbow Rowell was my favorite book of the year, but you have several books I really loved from this year. I loved Cress, The Winner’s Curse, and Mortal Heart. GREAT CHOICES!

  23. Dovile says

    I haven’t read any of your favorites, some of them are still on my wishlist. My favorites this year were books 1 to 4 in the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead.

  24. says

    Cress was awesome, and I absolutely adored Ruin and Rising! There are still a bunch on your list that I would like to read – particularly Bitter Greens, Jackaby, and The Girl With all the Gifts.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway!

  25. Chivi Soler says

    I haven’t had the chance to read any of your chosen books yet 🙁 But I would have loved for you to include Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout or Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley. I’d be happy to win any of these books though, so thank you for the giveaway. And HAPPY HOLIDAYS 🙂

  26. BookLady says

    What a great list of books for 2014! I would love to win a copy of Snow Like Ashes. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  27. Lisa Vazquezanzua says

    I haven’t read any of the ones listed but my favorite was Alienated by Melissa Landers! Most of the ones listed are on my TBR list and I cannot wait to read them!

  28. says

    There are quite a few on your list that I haven’t had the chance to read yet, The Girl With All the Gifts, The Kiss of Deception, and Princess of Thorns are all books I am looking forward to reading. I have so many favorites this year, it is hard to keep track of them all 😉 Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  29. MonaG says

    I haven’t read any on your list but The Girl With All The Gifts sounds intriguing. I skimmed a preview on Goodreads. Another one I would add is The Jewel by Amy Ewing.


  30. Melissa L. says

    There are a good number of books that are my favorite. There’s a few I’m interested in owning and reading ^_^ Thanks for the giveaway!!

  31. says

    The Winner’s Curse was one of the books I ordered from BookOutlet on BlackFriday… I can’t wait to start it! Thanks for doing the giveaway!!! 🙂

  32. says

    The only one I’ve read is Cress and I absolutely adored it, my favourite so far in the series. I also love Blue Lily, Lily Blue. Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day. 🙂

  33. Samantha Wallace says

    Two of my favorites were City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare and Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep!! 🙂

  34. Yuweng Xue says

    Yes you included most of my favourites!!

    *I accidentally mistyped my twitter username (supposed to be @yuwengxue), just a heads up 🙂

  35. Stacy says

    Cress was also one of my favorites. One that didn’t make your list was Dreams of Gods and Monsters. I thought it was a great end to such an amazing and unique series.

  36. says

    Thanks for this great giveaway! Your selection looks great; I take forever getting around to books that other bloggers have read (i.e. I finally have Leigh Bardugo, Sarah Maas, and Melissa Meyer’s first books in their series sitting on my to-read pile) so I can’t add anything else, really xD You did list a few titles I’m looking forward to checking out (Bitter Greens, Jackaby) 🙂

  37. says

    I’ve just started the Grisha trilogy and I’m really enjoying it! It’s definitely going to be one of my favourite trilogies! Thanks for the giveaway 😀

  38. Michelle Lee says

    Wow, you pretty much got them all! Did you also read The Young Elites and Atlantia?? Thank you for this amazing chance! 🙂

  39. Yun-a says

    I loved Cress, and you included a lot of the books I’d planned to read but never got around to. At least there are still a few weeks left!

  40. says

    It’s a tough call, but I think (as of this moment, anyway) my favorite book I read that I read in 2014 was “Isla & The Happily Ever After” by Stephanie Perkins. But one of your favorites — “Ruin & Rising,” the third book in the Grisha Series by Leigh Bardugo — definitely made it into my top five favorites from this year.

  41. says

    You definitely included a lot of my favorites, but I would have added Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen. If you haven’t yet read it then I highly recommend it!

  42. _Sandra_ says

    I absolutely loved Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo, perfect ending of an amazing trilogy. Some of my other favorites were Heir of Fire, Snow Like Ashes and The Kiss of Deception that are on your list.
    Thanks for a giveaway!

  43. Nilun Manivamh says

    I also really enjoyed Ruin and Rising, Heir of Fire, & The Kiss of Deception. There are a few on your list I will have to read.
