Top Ten Tuesday: The Top Ten Books of 2014....So far.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new book/blogging related topic that offers you the ability to spotlight your Top Ten.

Topic:
Top Ten Books I've Read So Far This Year

I love this topic, but I know it's going to be hard to narrow it down to just 10. I've read some pretty amazing stories so far this year.

In no particular order...

 1. In the Shadow of Jezebel by Mesu Andrews
2. The Queen's Handmaid by Tracy L. Higley
3. Dancing with Fireflies by Denise Hunter
5. For Such a Time by Kate Breslin
7. Silenced by Dani Pettrey
8. The Auschwitz Escape by Joel C. Rosenberg
9. The Thief by Stephanie Landsem
10. Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade

Each of these stories were fantastic. They each left me thinking about them after the story was over with. I wish that they had continued on.

What are your favorites so far this year?

You can't go wrong with Dani's books at all. And I'm so glad I discovered Becky's books. So life like! :-)

Really great picks, and very different from others I've seen today. Might have to check a few of these out. Have you changed your blog design up?? Looks different...or is it just me???

Wow, I haven't heard of most of these, but they all sound good! I especially love the DANCING WITH FIREFLIES cover. So pretty :)

Courtney Clark said...

YES! Three of these are on my top ten today, too. Dancing with Fireflies, The Sentinels of Andersonville, and The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn! I haven't read any of the others on your list, but I'll keep them in mind.

I've read and enjoyed Silenced, The Pursuit of Tamsen LittleJohn is sitting on my table right now, looking at me, and I've read an excerpt from Meant to Be Mine that piqued my curiosity. Nice choices, Kate.
