My Can't Wait Books of 2014

On my Goodreads, I got so excited for so many books that are coming out next year, I ended up creating a specific shelf to highlight the 2014 releases I'm most excited for. I thought it would be fun to share that with you all today. These are just some of the books I'm excited for next year, and a lot of these are sequels, but I thought this would be a chance to talk about our favorite series and upcoming sequels, as well as a few debuts I'm excited for as well. There are 35 books in this list, so description is going to be kept to a minimum, but each will have a Goodreads link so you can view their details there.
So, in no particular order...

A Shard of Ice (Black Symphony, #1)

A Shard of Ice by Alivia Anders - Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like Sailor Moon? It sounds fantastic!

Prophecy of Oz by Megan Shan - There are two Wizard of Oz retellings coming out in 2014. Wizard of Oz was my favorite childhood movie. Out of all of the ones I saw, it was the one I always wanted to watch again. I'm so excited!
Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor - I can't wait to read this- the entire series is beautifully written, and so unique!

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo - I think that the Grisha trilogy is going to have a fantastic conclusion!
The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #3)
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - I love how unique this series has been, and how Mara has developed as a character.

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare- This is my most anticipated release of 2014. I'm going to miss this series so much, but I know this conclusion is going to be epic.
Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi - So many of my favorite series are ending! I've been missing these characters, so I'm glad this book is coming soon!

Burn Bright (Dark Star, #2)

Burn Bright by Bethany Frenette - Dark Star was a great YA book- superheroes! It's very different from the other books I've read, and I'm excited to see it continue.

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers - I've yet to read Dark Triumph, but Grave Mercy was such an incredible book, and this book's focus character is one I wanted to learn more about in the first book.
Lady Thief (Scarlet, #2)
Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen - I've been waiting for a sequel! The first book was wonderful, and I loved the Robin Hood retelling.

The One (The Selection, #3)
The One by Kiera Cass - I'm admittedly a little nervous about this one- I was not a fan of The Elite at all. But I still have hope for this conclusion.

Unhinged (Splintered, #2)
Unhinged by A.G. Howard- What else can I say? Such. an. amazing. series.

Dance of Fire by Yelena Black - Dance of Shadows was such an intense story- I can't wait for this one and what I'm sure will be another incredible cover.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu - Although the Legend trilogy has ended, I'm excited to see what new ideas Marie Lu has for books!

The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson - I've been waiting for the book of all of these to marathon them.

3rd Gilded Wings by Aimee Agresti - A lot of stuff happened in the last book- I'm ready for the next one!

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey- I read The 5th Wave in December- it was fantastic! 

3rd Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - Yet to finish Crown of Midnight, still excited.

Aristeia by Kendare Blake - Antigoddess was great- I'm so excited to read more about the characters.

3rd Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken - I'm still reading Never Fade, but I'm nonetheless excited to finish the series! Since this is supposed to be a sentence, I'm wondering if it includes the novella 'The Darkest Minds in time never fade...' or just 'The darkest minds never fade...'

The Warrior (Dante Walker, #3)

The Warrior by Victoria Scott - Dante Walker and co. are awesome characters and there's a lot that needs to be resolved in this book. So excited!!

The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson - This series isn't well known, but I love it. And I need the next one!
Infinite (Newsoul, #3)

Infinite by Jodi Meadows - Releases this month, and I'm reading it as part of the Incarnate trilogy readathon.

The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black - Two of my favorite authors, so I'm definitely ready to read their collab!

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs - Not too long of a wait, this comes out very soon, and it's a highly anticipated sequel.

Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)

Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen- This was my top pick of 2014 debuts.

Fire & Flood (Fire & Flood, #1)Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott - What can I say? I love Victoria Scott's writing and I can't wait to start her new series. 

Side Effects May VarySide Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy - What a concept for a contemporary- looking forward to meeting the protagonist and how she lives with her crazy life!

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee - Very little description given, but from the few sentences I'm still really interested.

Feather BoundFeather Bound by Sarah Raughley - This sounds very different- the line about Cinderella is what really interested the fairy tale retelling fan in me, so I'm looking forward to it.

Midnight Thief (Midnight Thief, #1)Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne - After Poison Dance, I'm very excited for the full length novel.

4th Study Novel by Maria V. Snyder - The fact that this series is being extended makes me so incredibly happy.

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)The Falconer by Elizabeth May - Cover appreciation! Also, a really new idea and it sounds action packed.

Cruel Beauty

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge - A Beauty and the Beast retelling. Need I say more?

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner- As I write this, I'm still reading These Broken Stars, but it's so good I expect to finish it soon. Then, I'm ready for a sequel!

So, there's the shelf. What books are you excited for? Let me know!
