Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!



This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year.

2014 has been a bit of a difficult year for me thus far in terms of what I’ve read. The pace at which I’ve been reading has been glacial compared to prior years and as a result I’m perpetually behind on my self-imposed reading goal, which Goodreads is always all too eager to remind me of at every available opportunity. While I’m endlessly excited about what has been published this year and all the books I have yet to read, I feel as though I’ve been slogging through an perpetual, endless six-month-long reading slump from which I’ll never escape. That said, despite the struggle I’ve often faced, there have been a handful of standout novels that have left a lasting impression and that I’ve been pushing on family, friends, and amenable strangers ever since. I have no doubt that the books listed below will remain favourites for years to come, and I can only hope I’ll have the opportunity to re-read them again soon.

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

  2. I’ve only read THE IMPOSSIBLE KNIFE OF MEMORY and A MAD, WICKED FOLLY, and both were fantastic. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE and TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE are on just about every list, so I should probably read them. Great list!

    I need to read The Impossible Knife of Memory soon!! I’ve been meaning to read it but I just keep acquiring MORE books and it gets pushed back 🙁 I’ve read a lot of the same books as you this year: Where the Stars Still Shine, To All the Boys, Ask the Passengers. I will be reading Since You’ve Been Gone super soon. I just met Morgan Matson and she’s a sweetheart… so how can I NOT move that book up my list??

  7. I love your list! But it makes me especially happy to see two books on here for which I hold close to my heart: Side Effects May Vary and Where the Stars Still Shine. Such great stories, written by two fabulous women. I adore them and their books!

    Cutest blog ever!

    Since You’ve Been Gone was also one of my favorite books this year and I’m currently reading To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before!

    I’ve never heard of Ask the Passengers before, but I’m hearing great things about A.S. King!

    Thanks for sharing! Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post

  13. Nice picks! I absolutely loved To All The Boys, that made my list too. It was such a cute read and I was smiling for almost the whole time I was reading it. I can’t wait for the next book, that ending almost killed me. Since You’ve Been Gone is one I am eagerly awaiting, my order needs to hurry up and arrive!

    I want to read at least 7 books from that list…
    It just happens that I’m in an ongoing reading slump myself…
    Hopefully I will finish 2 books in the next 2 days and can move on…

  15. I’ve read a lot of positive reviews about A mad wicked folly and it’s definitely high on my wish list. I love the sound of this story 🙂
