The First Half of 2014 Grand Finale - Top 5 Books I've Read So Far ThisYear

I really wanted to make this as difficult for myself as possible, didn't I? In all honesty, though, I loved picking the different categories and giving my recommendations from them. However, I wanted to recommend my top 5 from any of the lists, the true best of the best for me. I tried to pick ones that made me feel something extra when I was reading them, that fully immersed me in the story and these are also from a wide range of genres (we've even got a contemporary on this list!). 2014 has been a fantastic, book filled year thus far and I cannot wait to see what other fabulous books are coming. 

Also, because I couldn't pick and I can add on to this, there are three honorable mentions at the bottom. I've talked about all of these in the other lists, so if you want my thoughts on them feel free to check out the other 'First Half of 2014' posts and see my thoughts as well as the other winners for this series. 

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)

Honorable Mention:
Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1)      Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)    Sweetly (Fairytale Retellings, #2)
Rebel Belle

Thank you so much for joining me for The First Half of 2014! I hope you enjoyed reading about this series, and I had so much fun coming up with the different genres and trying to pick out just the right books for it. I hope the rest of 2014 is a fantastic reading year, and well year in general too, for everyone, and see you soon! Also, stay tuned tomorrow because there may be some bonus material coming your way!

From the paper world,


  1. Dark Triumph!!! Love that series so so much! I grabbed an ARC of Mortal Heart at BEA and it is staring at me every time I walk into my house. I'm going to have to read it soon. And Cress!!! And Stolen Songbird which I have yet to read, but now will probably be waiting for a bit due to the news... :( You've read some great books so far this year! Loved the feature!

    1. I love how intricate and beautifully written that series is! Definitely one of my favorite historical fiction series by far, I'm amazed by each book. And oh my goodness that's awesome! Definitely let me know what you think of it after you finish Mortal Heart :) Cress is really awesome! I would say definitely read Stolen Songbird and then we can discuss- truly a fantastic fantasy/ magical book. Thank you so much for your help and insight and comments!!
