Top Ten Most Anticipated 2014 Releases62
December 2, 2013 by Alice in Readerland
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
There are so many fantastic sounding books coming out in 2014! Below is a list of the top 2014 books that I am so excited to read. (Okay, so there’s a bit more than ten books listed, but since I’m writing this on Cyber Monday, I’m just calling it a bargain deal. Plus, digital snow just started falling on my blog, so that makes me happy.)
Book titles link to Goodreads, and the books are divided between debut authors and authors I already love:
By Authors I Already Love
Cress by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles is by far my favorite book series, so Cress is by far my most anticipated 2014 release! I love this awesome cover too; I’m so excited to see what the future holds for everyone!
Unforgotten by Jessica Brody
Jessica Brody is one of my favorite authors, and I adored Unremembered (my review)! I enjoyed the cliffhanger ending to Unremembered so much that I even gave it a clapping bunny gif in my review. I’m curious to see what Unforgotten has in store!
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
I absolutely adored Jennifer’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (my review); it was just so sweet and the writing style was lovely! I’m eagerly awaiting her latest book!

This Shattered World (Starbound #2) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
I cannot rave about These Broken Stars enough (my review). It’s one of my favorite books of this year, I painted my nails after the cover, and I cannot stop recommending it. The writing and the whole world just sucked me in. I am so ecstatic to see what amazing story the authors have waiting for us in This Shattered World!
(No Cover Yet)
No Life But This by Anna Sheehan
I loved the character development, unreliable narration, and the slow reveal of the main character’s background in A Long, Long Sleep (my review) so much that it became one of my favorite books that I read this year. I’m very curious to see where the sequel takes the story!
(No Cover Yet)
Tether by Anna Jarzab
I thought Tandem was pretty cool (my review) with a fun concept, and I’m very excited to see what happens to all the characters in the sequel (especially after that cliffhanger Tandem left us with)!
(No Cover Yet)
Untitled (All Our Yesterdays #2) by Cristin Terrill
All Our Yesterdays was phenomenal (my review), so I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!
The Chapel Wars by Lindsey Leavitt
Lindsey Leavitt writes such adorable and hilarious books. I loved her last book, Going Vintage (my review) and this book sounds like a fun must-read for me! I have a feeling that this book will have me smiling a lot while I read it.
2014 Releases by Awesome Sounding Debut Authors
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
This book sounds amazing! I’ve wondered about what would happen if you had done all these daring things knowing that you’re going to die, and then you find out that you aren’t going to die and have to deal with everything you’ve done, so this concept sounds so cool to me! Plus, the author sounds pretty cool herself! Oh, and the main character is named Alice (*cough* great name *cough*). ;)
Under the Egg by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
A stupendous sounding mystery for fans of From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler? Yes, yes, and yes! This sounds wonderful.
(No Cover Yet)
Trust Me, I’m Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer
Con artist and master of disguise? As someone whose favorite T.V. show is Leverage, I am so excited to read this book, it sounds awesome!
(No Cover Yet)
Untitled by Amy Zhang
“About a teen girl who attempts suicide, told from the perspective of her neglected childhood imaginary friend.” YES, YES, and YES! I can’t wait to read the imaginary friend’s narration!
Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel
Mystery! Adventure! This book sounds like something I’d want to read right away!
Don’t they all sound amazing? Can I just have these books already?

I would have put CRESS, but that would be cheating, since I read it, but I wanted to!! Were you on the Twitter chat? Oh, I never got to read UNREMEMBERED! I will do that before UNFORGOTTEN comes out!…or wait until all 3 are out if the cliffhangers are bad…? Jennifer E. Smith has such cute covers! Ahh, Anna Sheehan finally has a release date and title? Yes!! I also have to get around to my copy of TANDEM…but ack…another cliffhanger???? VIVIAN DIVINE went up on Edelweiss today!! The biggest debut I want to read is THE QUEEN OF THE TEARLING by Erika Johansen, and some stuff Macmillan sent me, lol
I loved the cliffhanger for Unremembered, but I hope the cliffhanger for Unforgotten isn’t too bad!The cliffhanger for Tandem and the wait for Tether is driving me insane! I’m really excited for No Life But This. Oooh, thanks for telling me about Vivian Divine!
Ooh, the one by Amy Zhang sounds awesome! Definitely adding that one to my to-read list.
My TTT post :)
I’m excited for more info to come out about that one! :)
Ahhhhh, someone else who knows about Amy Zhang! Her book will be on my TTT this week, for sure.
Yay! I’m glad to meet another blogger who knows about it too; I’m excited for more details to come out about it. :)
My friend let me borrow her copy of Cress but I haven’t gotten around to it. I think I’ll probably get to it when it’s released. I love all of Jen E. Smith’s books and I can’t wait for this one as well. Eek. 2014 is about to be so amazing.
There are just so many amazing books coming out next year! :D
Ooh, the books you listed for the debut authors sound really interesting, especially Side Effects May Vary–will have to add it on GR! Great list :)
Hooray! I’m glad you’re excited for Side Effects May Vary too! :)
I just read All Our Yesterdays a few weeks ago and I loved it. I thought it worked perfectly as a standalone so I’m very interested to see how it’s going to go as a series. Will definitely be adding Side Effects May Vary to my to-read list!
Yay! Glad to know you loved All Our Yesterdays too! I liked it a lot as a standalone, so I’m really curious about what the plot of the sequel will be. :)
Great list :-) I’m intrigued by so many of the debuts!
There are so many awesome debut novels coming out next year! :)
The Chapel Wars sounds good! This is the first I’ve seen it. I still need to read Going Vintage, but hopefully I will one of these days soon! I also want to read The Geography of Me and You. I really liked The Statistical Prob. I wish I wouldve remembered it for my list!
I hope you enjoy Going Vintage when you read it, I think The Chapel Wars is going to be so cute and fun! I still have to read some of Jennifer E. Smith’s other books… :)
I adore the cover for Cress, I’m really excited to read it. I haven’t read anything by Jennifer E. Smith but I’ll be sure to check her out if I’m in the mood for something sweet. All Our Yesterdays is on my wishlist, it sounds incredible, hopefully the sequel will be just as good. Awww I love the adorable cat gif. :D
I know, right? The Cress cover is gorgeous!
Thanks, I’m such a sucker for cat gifs! :)
I love that you mentioned Debut Authors… it’s hard to know what they have coming out. Thanks for sharing!
My Top Ten
Thanks, there are some really awesome sounding debuts coming out next year! :)
Ah, I knew I forgot some, one of which is Geography of You and Me! My bonus ones are mostly the ones without covers (grrr, I want covers, publishers!). A story told by an imaginary friend?!? I WANT I WANT I WANT. Love the list, Alice!
I’m excited to see the covers too, and the POV of an imaginary friend sounds so amazing! :)
Cress!!!! I think this is going to be on everybody’s lists today. :) These Broken Stars #2. I just finished reading it and omg I loved it. Your nails were so pretty when you did them to match the cover. The Amy Zhang book sounds really cool. A book narrated by an imaginary friend? Awesome and super unique! Great list!
P.S. Love the digital snow!
Hooray! So glad you loved These Broken Stars too!
Thank you! :) I don’t live where there’s snow, so I’ve been loving the digital snow. ;)
Oh, I forgot about some of these, like THIS SHATTERED WORLD. THE CHAPEL WARS sounds so stinkin’ cute. AND OHMYGOSH CRESS. I don’t mean to brag or anything (I really don’t), but it is EXCELLENT. Thanks for stopping by!
Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf
Yay! Glad you loved Cress! I know This Shattered World will be amazing, and the Chapel Wars sounds like a book that will have me smiling through it! :)
Vivian Dinine looks awesome, putting it on my tbr list. Thanks for sharing!
My Top Ten this week!
I’m excited for more info to come out about that one, it does look awesome! :)
OMG YES, I can’t wait for the sequel to All Our Yesterdays, either!! That book was soooooo good. I’m also really looking forward to reading Vivian Divine is Dead – I hadn’t heard of that before I found it on EW, but it sounds AWESOME. :D
Glad you loved All Our Yesterdays too! :D I’m excited for more info to come out about Vivian Divine, though it sounds awesome enough already! :)
The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series too, so I am also really excited for Cress. And yeah that cover is so pretty, and I think it’s going to look great on my shelves next to the other two. I’m SO exited for These Broken Stars and I am glad that you love it. Just a few days and I can read it too, though I hope I’m not the black sheep and end up not liking it! And Vivian Divine is Dead looks awesome and I love the cover.
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
I know, I can’t wait to get Cress and line up all the gorgeous Lunar Chronicles book covers next to each other! :) I hope you love These Broken Stars!
I am also so so excited for This Shattered World! I didn’t even think to put it on there. These Broken Stars was one of my favourite books from this year. Cress was amazing and I just know you are going to love it. And The Geography of You And Me looks so cute, can’t wait!
Thanks for stopping by Swept Away By Books!
Same here, These Broken Stars was one of my favorite 2013 books too! Glad you thought Cress was amazing! :D
I haven’t read Marissa Meyer’s book and I think I should change that. The cover of Cress is badass!
Awesome list <3
Doris @ OABR
I love the covers for the Lunar Chronicles! :)
They do all sound amazing! This is a bad week for my TBR list!
I know, my TBR list keeps getting longer and longer!
Great list and lots of great picks! My mind always seems to go blank whenever I try and do my TTT, so I went for series that I need to start that have releases in 2014. Lunar Chronicles made my list as I have only heard wonderful things about the whole series. My TTT
I hope you love the books!!! :)
Awww Under the Egg looks Super cute! and I cannot wait for Anna Sheehan’s sequel, either! I really enjoyed A Long, Long Sleep!
Thanks for stoppin’ by!
I love a good MG novel!
Glad to meet another blogger who enjoyed A Long, Long Sleep, I haven’t met that many who have read/enjoyed it! :)
Okay, I’ll tell you right now: Cress is incredible. And I’m so with you on The Geography of You and Me (I love JES!), This Shattered World (I loved TBS as well), and Side Effects May Vary (Julie is the best, and I need that book now!). Great, great list!
Mary @ Mary Had a Little Book Blog
So glad that you enjoyed Cress!
There are just too many good books coming out! Can I have them already?! ;)
The Chapel Wars looks great, I can’t wait to read it either. I really need to start the Lunar Chronicles series, I know I’m missing out on some awesome books.
Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten!
Yay! Glad you’re excited for The Chapel Wars too! :)
I haven’t heard of some of these….. in particular The Chapel Wars sounds really funny! Adding to it to my goodreads! I still haven’t read Cinder yet and am feeling really guilty since Cress has been on almost every list I’ve seen today!
I’m so excited for The Chapel Wars, and I hope you enjoy Cinder when you read it!
The Chapel Wars sounds so awesome! I didn’t know she had a new book coming out. I liked Unremembered, and Unforgotten looks even better. The Geography of You and Me also looks adorable. Amazing picks :)
There are so many fabulous sounding books coming out next year! :)
You have such a cute blog here! Thanks for the comment on my blog.
Some of them sound very interesting. Got to check them out!
Thank you!!! :)
SO many good ones here! You have some I have on my TBR, but many I need to go read about. Great list.

I forgot about Vivian Divine is Dead, but it intrigues me! About to pick up These Broken Stars, especially after your stellar recommendation! Currently reading Cress and really loving it, I hope you will too soon :)
I’m excited to hear more info about Vivian Divine is Dead; I hope you love These Broken Stars, and I’m glad you’re loving Cress!
I was just thinking how I was missing your posts lately – glad to see another one again! :)
2014 is such an awesome year for books. I absolutely can’t wait for Cress and The Geography of You and Me. They both sound amazing! Under the Egg looks awesome too. The cover is so fun. Great choices!
On a totally unrelated note, but in regards to your tweet, I’m a huge Idina Menzel fan, and I could listen to Let It Go on repeat for days :)
Aw, thank you!!! I took a break for NaNoWriMo, but I think I’ll be back to regularly blogging now. :)
Hooray! It’s so nice to meet another Idina Menzel fan, her voice is amazing; I was so excited when I heard that she was going to be voicing a Disney princess. Me too, Let it Go has quickly become a new favorite of mine. :)
It seems I really need to read the first two books in The Lunar Chronicles series, Starbound, and All of Our Yesterdays in time for next year!
Awesome list and thanks for stopping by my Top Ten! :)
I hope you enjoy them! :)
I’m super stoked for Unforgotten. I haven’t read the novella in the series yet but I loved the first book. I was about to go through and explain why I want to read the books on this list I’m excited for but I realized it’s basically all of them. haha.
I still need to read the novella too, I totally forgot about it. Thanks for remind me! :)
