Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we feature top ten books or book related stuff according to each week’s topic.
In this week’s list, I’m going to include both debut authors & debut series of 2014.
Top Ten 2014 Releases I’m Dying to Read:
1. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Sometime in September
Firstly, it’s Marie Lu. Secondly, the protagonist (Adelina) and I (Adelena) have the same name with a different spelling – a rare feat considering that my name isn’t exactly common. It’s hard not to get hyped up over it!
2. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
High fantasy and an absolutely gorgeous cover? I’m in!
3. Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke
Another cover I’m head over heels for but the plot also sounds captivating. Alternate worlds and multiverse!
4. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
So the protagonist, Alice, doesn’t seem like a very nice person (alright, she sounds downright mean) but there’s something about the synopsis that draws me in…
5. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
A twisted retelling (or continuation?) of a classic? I’m all for it.
6. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
Hitler’s NIECE and a JEW?! Talk about the ultimate star-crossed lovers. GIVE IT TO ME NOW.
7. The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel
I would read this for the title alone.
8. Salvage by Alexandra Duncan
A girl escaping from a messed up dystopic space ship back to Earth which seems to be a ginormous rubbish dump. How irresistible does that sound?
9. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
“An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.”
*waves hands wildly in the air* ME. THAT’S ME.
10. Hexed by Michelle Krys
Alright, this sort of reminds me a lot of Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (which I loved) with the witchy thing and the similar title so why not give it a try?
