Top Ten Favourite Books Of 2014

I’m using my 5* reads of 2014 to make up this list, as well as a few others that didn’t quite hit the 5* mark but were great reads that have stayed with me.

Best Books of 2014 Part 1

1, 2 & 3. The Assassin’s Blade (5*), Throne of Glass (5*) and Crown of Midnight (5*) by Sarah J Maas – This series is definitely one of my favourites from 2014, I absolutely adore this world and can’t wait to read the rest of the series, and anything else Maas has to offer!

4 & 5. Ugly Love (5*) and Maybe Someday (4.5*) by Colleen Hoover – Another of my favourite new finds for 2014 – I’m loving Hoover’s books so far and can’t wait to read many more in 2015!

Best Books of 2014 Part 2

6. Divergent (5*) by Veronica Roth – Divergent definitely takes a top spot for this year – I enjoyed the series overall, but the first book was my favourite.

7. Boys Like You (5*) by Juliana Stone – I talk about this find quite a lot, and I know at least two bloggers who have hauled this book (would love to know what they think when they’ve read it!). I think I’m slightly biased when it comes to Boys Like You because I read it at a time when it really resonated with me, but I’m pretty sure it’s a solid read 🙂

8. Come Back To Me (4*) by Mila Gray – This pick surprised me. I was browsing my 4* and 4.5* reads to see which I wanted to include, and this one jumped out at me. I would definitely read it again, and that’s usually the telltale sign of a winner for me. It’s a great NA romance.

9 & 10. Pushing the Limits (4*) and Dare You To (4*) by Katie McGarry – Katie McGarry is definitely a break-through author for me this year. I still have to get around to reading Crash Into You but I’m really looking forward to reading it, and the rest of the books in this series!

I feel like this list is mostly made up of books I’ve spend the whole year talking about anyway, which makes sense but it feels repetitive! Link me up or let me know what your top ten books of the year are in the comments! Happy reading, Book Geeks!

      1. I feel like giving something 5 stars is like saying it’s perfect and I’m very stingy about that haha. There are some books that I really enjoy, but the subject matter or writing might not be “perfect” or there’s books that are tremendously well written, but not quite as enjoyable. I haven’t found the perfect pairing of them all yet since I started blogging.


  1. Surprisingly, I don’t think I chose 5-star reads in my list this week. In fact, I feel like a lot of them are 4-star reads. I think I might have been less-critical earlier in the year; which was where a lot of my 5-star ratings came from. TANGENTS. Anyways, everyone still continues to rave and love Throne of Glass–I’m scared I might hold it to high expectations (and we know how that went with We Were Liars… LOL).

    joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts


  2. Great picks. I had all the Throne of Glass books on my list as well, they are just too awesome! I also had Maybe Someday but didn’t have Ugly Love – I loved both but I think the soundtrack aspect of Maybe Someday is what wins it for me. Divergent is my favourite book in the series too! Katie McGarry is a hard one for me because I enjoyed Pushing the Limits and Dare You To but then ended up having to DNF Crash Into You – the story is basically just the same as the other two and that bugs me, too repetitive or I guess I should say formulaic. Great picks!
