Top Ten Tuesday #11

My goodness I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday in like 7 months but I thought I had to do this one as I might not be able to get my 2014 End of Year Book Survey in since I'll be going away.

This week's: Top Ten Books I Read In 2014! And I'm doing this by all the books I read in 2014 regardless of release date. This doesn't include all my 5 star reads because while some books were 5* quality, they weren't... Favourites per se - they weren't books I'd re-read. These are the books I adored, would re-read, endings that made me happy, gave me lots of feels and had really shippable couples!

This was really hard to choose D: like 10 just overall best books I read this year? ARGH here goes...

You knew it. I knew it. The whole world knew it. HOF is my fav by a landslide. It is THE book of the year for me.

CHAPTER 55. Sweet baby Jesus *fans self*


SO. MUCH. LOVE. FOR THIS SERIES. And JON was perfect. It's one of my favourite contemporaries ever. It's like... Melina Marchetta level favourite. That's right. You heard me.

It's Melina Marchetta come on. Saving Francesca 5 years later omgomg. All the Melina Marchetta <3

While I loved DoGaM too and that ending to the trilogy was fantastic, it was DoBaS that gave me so many bloody feels.

Aaslkdjslfsdghslhfsdfs no words JUST READ THIS IT'S BEAUTIFUL. The writing is stunning!

Assassin nuns? CHYEAH! Also, swoony guy. High fantasy wins!

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender

I binge read this whole series and loved it but if I had to pick 1 book I loved out of the trilogy it'd be the last one. High fantasy always.

Absolutely blown away by the depth of the world building. It's a fantastic mix of so many genres and it just WORKS. Samantha Shannon is genius.


  1. Heir of Fire makes one of my favorite reads this year as well. Grave Mercy was pretty darn good too. Although I like the sequels even more. :) I did like The Bone Season but I didn't overly love it. I am interested to see where the next book takes us.

    Here is to an even better reading year next year! :)

    1. I need to get on the rest of His Fair Assassin! I hear bk2 is amazing. I was so surprised by The Bone Season haha I had no idea what hit me.

  2. I don't understand how people can narrow it down to only 10 books!! SO HARD!

    HOF, Ignite Me, Just One Day, and Grave Mercy are AWESOME! I Can't wait to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone!! EEK!

    Great list!

  3. I got Just One Day for my birthday way back in June AND I STILL HAVEN'T READ IT. So...I've got to get to that soon. Also!!! ARI AND DANTE!! Yes. Love that book sooo so much <3

  4. This Shattered World, Ignite Me and Heir of Fire are all absolutely fantastic sequels, and I can't wait to see how each of the authors decide to conclude their series. :) Thanks for sharing Jaz, and great choices! ♥
