*fair warning, I did not read nearly all the books I wanted to last year. some of the books contained on this list may shock viewers. discretion advised.*
Bonus: 11. The Treatment by Suzanne Young
I received an ARC of book 1 in this series what seems like 3 years ago. Maybe it was 3 years ago, because when I sat down to read The Treatment, remembered absolutely nothing of book 1. It quickly got tossed aside, never to be picked up again. I doubt I'll return to the series, but since I own book 1, it's not impossible.
10. Defy by Sara B. Larson
I don't know why, but somehow I heard about this book and decided I'd love it. I went so far as subscribing to the author's blog and following the author on Twitter before the book even released. Then I read the first few pages and decided I'd rather marathon Scandel, because guys, Olivia Pope. So yeah. Don't see myself returning to this novel.
9. To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I heard about this book on BookTube. I think I've read another Jenny Han book, and I liked it well enough. I liked the title of this book. For some reason it reminded me of The Boyfriend List and 13 Little Blue Envelops, both stories I enjoyed. I never started this book, but If I get it from the library in the next few months, I could see myself reading it.
8. #scandal by Sarah Ockler
I think maybe Cait at Paper Fury mentioned this book? I heard about it somehow, but never saw it at my library, so I haven't started it yet. (Also, currently the people at my library hate me because I have their books and have not given them back. So I haven't been there in a while.)
7. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Guys, Anne and the French Kiss was one of the first YA romance books I actually liked. I feel like I just have to see this series to completion. *repeats mantra* I will read this soon. I will read this soon.*
6. Graduation Day by Joelle Charbonneau
Book 1 was great. Book 2 was, well, fine. Just not fine enough to inspire me to go searching for book 3. If it had showed up on my bookshelf, I would have read it. But since the TBR faeries didn't see fit to hide it under my pillow, I haven't read it.
5. Undivided by Neal Shusterman
I actually didn't even realize this book was out until I started writing this blog post. In case you didn't know, Guys! The next Unwide book is out! This series is one of my all-time favorites and has had a huge impact on me personally. I will read it post-haste. You should too.
*these are the books you guys might really hate me for*
4. Panic by Lauren Oliver
I don't know what is wrong with me, but I just don't LOVE Lauren Oliver like some people do. Nevertheless, I thought I would give Panic a shot. It's a standalone, so not too much commitment. And I've heard great things about it. So I'll probably keep it on my TBR and see what happens.
3. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J Maas
As a self-identifying Celaena Sardothien fangirl, I am seriously ashamed of myself for not having read this book. I feel like I must fail at fangirling. I read the first short story, but shorts just aren't my thing. You feel me? Did you read Assassin's Blade? If so, how was it? I'm sure it is worth the read, and I'll get to it sometime in the future.
2. The One by Kiera Cass
I feel like at this point I'd need to go back and read the whole series to fully appreciate this book. I'm sure it's a great book. Maybe I'm just sick of dystopian love triangles. Isn't everyone by now?
1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
I LOVED Cinder, but Scarlet really threw me through a loop. I have a hard time dealing with more than two POV characters, and from what I can remember, Scarlet had three. I think I was worried Cress would have four or more, and I just wouldn't enjoy that very much. If the TBR faeries gave my the whole series so far, I might marathon them. Otherwise, I just don't see myself finishing it.
That's it for the linkup. BUT
Four things before you go!
Uno) Please don't throw things at me for having not read these books. I thought I would. I honestly thought I would!
Dos) Let's make TBR faeries a thing. For realzies. If one of you is an artist, I want TBR faerie art! *it would honest to goodnessly make my month*
Tres) They'll be another post on Thrusday. It's all polished (LOL I almost typed Polish[I should go to bed]) and ready to go! Come back for it. It'll be good.
Cuatro) I'm taking two college courses this semester, Chemistry and Spanish. So you can expect shorter posts, but with a higher Español to English ratio.
Thanks for reading! What are some books that you looked over in 2014? Are you going to read them now? And if you did the link-up too, feel free to leave your link in the comments.
