TOP TEN TUESDAY - Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To

This week's Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke & The Bookish is all about the 2014 released that I really wanted to read but for various reasons didn't get chance to.

PANIC - Lauren Oliver 

I have been wanting to read this book ever since it first came out at the start of 2014. Described as being a novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope I can't wait to eventually read it as it sounds so good, plus it also has good reviews so that always makes me want to read books more!

"What if you'd been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you?"

When I first saw this book I thought "Oh not another book about a teen with cancer" but I really like Julie Murphy's take on this, what would you do if you were going to die so told everyone what you really thought about them because you were dying then don't? I can't wait to eventually get to actually buying this and reading it soon!!

WHAT I THOUGHT WAS TRUE - Huntley Fitzpatrick

Over the summer I read Huntley Fitzpatrick's first book, My Life Next Door and really enjoyed it. It was a good, fun read and I wanted to pick up her this book straight away but never get around to it. If My Life Next Door is anything to go by I'm sure it's going to be a cute romance story, which is quick and enjoyable to read. I'll probably read this next summer when I'm in the mood for a fluffy summery read.
THE TAKING - Kimberly Derting

"When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day."

The Taking sounds like such an interesting story which I've been wanting to read ever since it came out earlier in the year. It seems mysterious and enticing and I can't wait to read it.

"Right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just… disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try… unless they could lead back to her best friend."

I feel like just the description makes me want to read it, it seems like such a fun, exciting book that I would love to read sometime soon!
INLAND - Kat Rosenfield

"The psychological labyrinth of a young woman’s insidious connection to the sea"

The premise of this book caught my attention, I haven't read anything psychological before and I am just drawn in by the mystery of this.
100 SIDEWAYS MILES - Andrew Smith

Honestly, I have no clue what this book is about and even the description on goodreads confused me but so many people on booktube have raved about this book and how good it is so I've really been wanting to read it.

DON'T LOOK BACK - Jennifer L. Armentrout

When I think of this book and my need to own it, I think of this gorgeous American edition cover and even want to pay for international shipping from Barnes and Nobel (crazy, right?) but the english edition is awful.

The actual story sounds so good though. A girl going missing and not remembering who she is when she comes back? Mysterious and so good!
DOROTHY MUST DIE - Danielle Paige 

I feel like this one is cheating a little bit. I own this book. I've read SOME of this book and just randomly stopped before even getting to 100 pages. I don't know why, I enjoyed it. Who doesn't love a fairytale retelling? I do, especially one that's takes the original and makes Dorothy evil. So I will at some point start this book again and complete it and before the 2nd one comes out!

I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN - Jandy Nelson

When this book was first there was so much hype around it but I just never got around to reading it. The premise of it sounds like such a good; written from two perspectives of twins who sound completely opposites.

Being described as being great "for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell"  whats not to love? I think it would be such a good read,

So what books did you want to read and didn't?
Hopefully soon I'll be able to haul all these and get reading!
