Best Books of 2014 | Top 10 of 2014

Today is the first day of Top 10 of 2014, hosted by Two Chicks on Books! I wasn't sure whether I was going to take part initially, but in the end I thought: why the hell not? I love events like these because they always introduce me to new blogs and bloggers that I've been unaware of before, and it's a lot of fun seeing which books other people talk about.

The first category is Best Books I've Read in 2014. I've been a little naughty in that, through Top Ten Tuesday, I've actually already listed my top ten, but I'm still going to do it again and leave a link to my Top Ten Tuesday post here.

So, in the order I read them, my Top 10 Books of 2014 are:

  1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman (reviewed here!)
  2. Cress by Marissa Meyer (reviewed here!)
  3. Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
  4. Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks (reviewed here!)
  5. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
  6. Feed by Mira Grant (reviewed here!)
  7. The Undressed by Jemma L. King
  8. Frenchman's Creek by Daphne du Maurier
  9. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (reviewed here!)
  10. Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop by Jenny Colgan (reviewed here!)
Which books made your list?


  1. Awesome list! Three of my all time fav books on it :) The Graveyard Book, American Gods & Cress! You must read Anansi Boys, too, if you haven't yet...

    1. I still need to read Anansi Boys! =) I'm really looking forward to the TV adaptation of American Gods, too.

  2. I sadly haven't read any of these! I loved Cinder and definitely need to read Scarlet and Cress soon! I've also been wanting to read Feed for along time. Love zombies.

  4. I've only read Cress of your list. It just fell out of my top 10. Thanks for sharing! Here's my Best Books of 2014 post.

  5. I loved Dark Triumph, too! Sybella was the best main character of the series for me! Great reads!
