I'm so excited to take part in the Top 10 of 2014 week. I have loved doing these in the past few years and I can't wait to share all of my favourites with you this week.
~ My Top 10 Books I Read in 2014! ~
10. Inspire (Muse #1) by Cora Carmack
I've been such a massive fan of Cora Carmack since I read her NA Contemporary series Losing It. I have been a huge fan of NA books and I've been dying for more Paranormal NA books and this year saw the release of an amazing one and by one of my favourite authors. Inspire was a perfect mix of mythology, action and smexy times. I loved it and I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book of the series.
9. Anomaly (Schrodinger's Consortium #1) by Tonya Kuper
I was very lucky to get a eARC of this new YA Paranormal Romance by debut author Tonya Kuper and I absolutely adored it. The perfect mix of paranormal, romance and a flair of scientific explanations I absolutely adore every moment of it. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
8. Sweet Reckoning (Sweet Trilogy #3) by Wendy Higgins
Finally, the final book in the phenomenal Sweet Trilogy was released and we saw the ending that we all wanted. I fell in love with these characters all over again and devoured this book as I just adored it so much and had to see how it all ends. Wendy gave us a fantastic conclusion to the series and it was phenomenal!
7. Storm (Elementals #1) by Brigid Kemmerer
This year I finally got around to starting the Elementals series and I absolutely loved it. It was the perfect book for me. YA, magical and romantic. I loved every single moment of it and I can't wait to continue on with this series in the coming year.
6. Queen of Zombie Hearts (White Rabbit Chronicles #3) by Gena Showalter
Another finale of a favourite series. I have loved this series since I started Queen of Zombieland and as sad as it was to see one of my favourite series of all time finish I loved every moment of it. It was utterly fantastic and a perfect ending to the series.
5. Stitching Snow by RC Lewis
This year I got into all of my fairytale retelling YA books and Stitching Snow was without a doubt the best one I read this year. It was so good. It was an amazing mix of the original fairytale and a new sci-fi story. I loved it!
4. Dark Days by Kate Ormand
At the beginning of the year I was still very much obsessed with everything dystopian and was ucky enough to get an eARC of this one. This is one of the most fast-paced, amazing, touching and original dystopia books I have read and I couldn't put it down. I still vividly remember each detail.

3. The Falconer (The Falconer #1) by Elizabeth May
The Falconer was one of those books I started and wasn't really enjoying so I put it down (that was end of 2013) and then this year I decided to give it another go and I am so freaking glad I did because this is one of the best books I have ever read. A mixture of historical, steampunk and epic fantasy I loved every moment of it. It was amazing and I cannot wait to read the second book next year.
2. Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J Maas
This was the hardest decision ever. I couldn't decide whether this should be number 2 or number 1. I loved it so freaking much. It was a massive book but without a doubt one of the best I have ever read, not just this year... I mean EVER! Sarah J Maas is just amazing and I cannot wait to get my hands on Book 4... and her new series too.
1. Wicked (Wicked Trilogy #1) by Jennifer L Armentrout
JLA. Fae. Brownies. NA. Paranormal... What's not to obsess over? I freaking adored this book. I knew Jen was writing a NA Paranormal book and I knew I'd love it but I just didn't expect it to be that phenomenal. I devoured it and I loved absolutely everything this book... even the heartbreaking cliffhanger she gave us.
~ Honorable Mentions ~
Now I don't usually do honorable mentions, I like to stick it just to the 10... but there was 2 books that I absolutely adored and should have made this list and the only reason I didn't include them is because they are not actually our yet. Both were ARCs of 2015 releases so here they are my 2 already-read 2015 books that were amazing!
The Return (Titan #1) by Jennifer L Armentrout
I freaking loved this. It's no surprise to anyone that Jennifer's Covenant series is amazing and my favourite series of all time so I was so excited for the spin-off series. The Return is amazing and much more smexy with it being NA. I loved every moment of it and I can't wait for it to release.
The Girl At Midnight by Melissa Grey
This YA Fantasy 2015 debut is one of the best books I've ever read. I fell in love with the world building, the beautiful magic and the wonderful characters. I couldn't put this book down it was just absolutely fantastic. I loved every moment of it and I can't wait until it releases in April so I can gush about it with everyone it's just fantastic.
My Review of The Girl At Midnight will go live in January 2015
