Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Release I'm Dying To Read

brought to you by: the broke and the bookish

Jeni's Picks: 
1. The One by Keirra Cass: Can't wait to finish this series. I've been putting off reading number 2 so I can finish the series all at once. (release date: May 6, 2014)
2. The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen. I love her books and I'm so excited for her new book. (release date: one site says December 24, 2014 and another says January 1, 2014) 
3. As you Are Sarah M. Eden: I love this author. She has had a tough last year because she was diagnosed with RA but she keeps on creating. So excited to read Corbin's story in this next book of the jonquil brothers. Seriously, she gets better with every books. (release date: January 2014)
4. The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen: My girls and I are huge fans of her first 2 books. We have been waiting anxiously for this last book in her Ascendance trilogy. Yeah!!!! (release date: February 25, 2014)
5. Defy by Sara B. Larson: A debut that looks amazing. I love stories where the girl dresses like a boy to be a knight. (release: January 7, 2014)

Emily's Picks
*disclaimer I don't usually check to see what books are coming out. Jeni usually keeps me informed (it helps she is the best sister ever.), so I'm a little behind and might not be "dying" for these books, because as of today, I might not have been aware any of these books were coming out. :) *

1. The Blood of Olympus  (The Heroes of Olympus #5) by Rick Riordan. I have really enjoyed this series, and considering I still need to read the last two books in the series, I am content to wait until October for this release.
2. City Of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare. I truthfully thought that she could have ended this story on book 4, but it will be interesting to see where she takes this series.
3. Renegade (Mila 2.0 #2) by  Debra Driza. I actually saw the first one on someones list on goodreads, and thought: this is too weird for me.  I am not usually a Sci-fi type gal.  But I am willing to give a try.  And the second one is due out next year. So, i might wait until all three are out to start reading.
4. Evertrue (Everneath #3) by Brodi Ashton. I read the first book, thinking I would love this story, because I usually like retelling's of Greek mythology.  This one didn't thrill me at all. But I have the second book, and I like a finished set. So, eventually, I will take a gander and read this series.  Who knows?  This might end up like Myra Dryer and I might just end up loving it the second time around.
5.  After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum.  I was scanning books on goodreads and this came on my radar. It looks pretty good and sounds like a mix of the movie The Village and the Hunger Games type book so I would most likely enjoy it.


  1. Really looking forward to After the End! I added it to my TBR list the other day and now seeing it on so many people's top ten lists, I am even more excited about it!

  2. Jeni- I'm really excited for Defy as well, warrior girls disguised as boys is one of my favorite tropes.
    Emily - 2014 looks like the year of great sequels. After the End looks fascinating.
