Top Ten Tuesday



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new prompt is provided and book bloggers, like me, share their top ten lists. 

This week's prompt-
Top 10 2014 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn't




1. Yes, Please by Amy Poehler- A hilarious woman writing a book about her life and passing along advice as she goes. What's not to love?


2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty- This was a book I saw on tons of feeds and posts this past year and I have been wanting to check it out. I know 2015 will be the year!


3. Revival by Stephen King- I love anything and everything I have read by Stephen King so far and I heard lots of good things about this one. 


4. Landline by Rainbow Rowell- Rainbow Rowell is an author I am so upset I have never read anything by yet. I know everyone loves her and I can't wait to see what all the hype is about!


5. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins- Another series of books that I plan on checking out this year (okay, so maybe I haven't read the first couple, I'll get to those too!) as I love reading all of the reviews about this one. 


6. Reunion by Hannah Pittard- I love stories about families and their problems and secrets, and I feel like this one is a great mix of all of that. 


7. One Plus One by Jojo Moyes- An author I read for the first time this past year and I can't wait to read more of her. This book seemed the most unique and interesting and I will definitely be reading it in 2015. 


8. The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon- I read multiple reviews about this one and it instantly stuck with me. I have been in the mood for good mysteries lately and this will be perfect for all of those cold winter days I'm stuck in the house. 


9. The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell- Another book about families and the events that surround them.


10. The Teashop on the Corner by Milly Johnson- This book just looks warm and comforting and is one I want to check out this winter. 


Well, what do you think? Were you lucky enough to read these books last year? Leave me a link with your reviews if you did!

  1. You're got some great books on this list! I loved Reunion - and it's a quick read! I have to say that I'm one of the only people that didn't like Big Little Lies...I actually haven't liked the last 3 of her books that I've read. It's all the mommy politics...

    1. You know how much I love all of your picks so Reunion will be at the top of my list! I'll be interested to check out Big Little Lies but honestly I don't know much about it. 2015 will be a great reading year!

  2. I'm listening to Yes Please right now as an audiobook (narrated by Amy) and I LOVE it. Hope you get to read that one soon! Also, ISLA! It's so wonderful.

    1. I feel like Yes Please would be a good one on Audiobook... might have to get it that way :)

  3. Aaaaah! I heard about Winter People early on in the year and was super interested in it, but then I kind of forgot about it as the year went on. Very sad, it sounds good. Maybe I'll check it out.

    Yes Please is definitely worth reading!

    1. I know, that was the same for me! If only we had more time those books wouldn't get lost in our TBR piles! :)

  4. I rarely read newly released books, but Landline I made the exception for - it was also my first experience reading Rainbow Rowell and I thoroughly enjoyed!

    1. I can't wait for that one.. Like I said I have heard so many people that love her and I want to see what all the hype is about!

  5. Landline and One Plus One were really good books, funny and satisfying. I wanted to read Yes Please, but missed my library hold! The series that Isla comes from intrigues me, so I might try to start that this year.

  6. I suck at keeping up with new releases! I really, really want to read Yes Please, Landline and Isla but I haven't got around to them yet :(
