1. The Magician’s Lie by Greer Macallister – this one is still fresh in my mind, as I just finished it. It doesn’t come out until January 2015, but I’ll still count it. It was an absolutely captivating read. Check out the review and giveaway (live until Friday!).
2. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – I haven’t posted my review yet, but I just finished this over the weekend…totally loved it and can’t wait until book two is released!
6. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin – I love the Heaven that Gabrielle writes about, and the whole cycle of life – you die, stay in Heaven as you age backwards from the age you were when you originally passed, and then you are sent back to Earth as a baby. Super intriguing. 5/5 on Goodreads.
8. Pointe by Brandy Colbert – I wrote about Brandy Colbert a week or so ago, and she’s a pretty amazing author. This book is definitely not something I’ve ever read anything similar to in the past, and the that Brandy wrote it makes it so much better than I could have ever imagined. 5/5 on Goodreads.
Only a couple of these were actually published in 2014, but I read them all for the first time this year and they stand out in my mind. I’ve linked back to my reviews of the ones I’ve blogged about, the others I read earlier in the year.
