I had a ton of fun doing the last countdown survey so I was so excited to see that Novel Ink was hosting another one – and end of year version 🙂 Since I missed the Top Ten recaps last week, this was a great opportunity to highlight some books and also discuss some 2015 goals and exciting books!

9 Favorite Books of 2014

Throne of Glass  The Book of Life  Say What You WIll  The Art of Lainey
Lamb to the Slaughter  The Opportunist  Shadow and Bone  My Life Next Door  Dark Lover
I’ve talked about each of these books a million times over at this point, they are all AMAZING and five-star reads from me last year!

8 Books You Never Wanted to End

The Book of Life  Throne of Glass  The Art of Lainey  The Distance Between Us 
 My Life Next Door  The Perfectionists  Get Even  Shadow and Bone
The Book of Life I didn’t want to end because the trilogy was finished, and OH MY HEART.  Throne of Glass, The Art of Lainey, The Distance Between Us, Shadow and Bone and My Life Next Door was because I enjoyed these books SOOO much I just wanted to keep reading. The Perfectionists and Get Even I didn’t want to end because I know it’s a long wait until the second book and I knew I was going to get ZERO answers by the end!

7 Books You’ll Re-Read

Fangirl  The Distance Between Us  anne of green gables 
 littlewomen  Little House in the Big Woods  Paradise  Clockwork Angel
I love each of these stories in a different way and for different reasons. The most recent of them I have read is Fangirl and that was well over a year ago now so they all deserve a reread!

6 Series You Need To Finish

Throne of Glass  Shadow and Bone  Dark Lover  Beautiful Creatures  Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris  Halo
Series are my weak spot. I love them. But apparently I do not love finishing them before I saunter off to a new one! These are six that I’m hoping I will get finished in 2015!

5 Golden Finds (Unpopular Books You Loved)

Lamb to the Slaughter  The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchent  The Opportunist  Stir Me Up  If I Lie by Corrine Jackson
I don’t think these books are unpopular, but I just wish I seen MORE of them around the blogosphere. I loved each and every one of these books SOOOO much and I think they deserve a lot more attention!!

4 Books You Wish Were Movies/TV Shows

Shadow and Bone  Throne of Glass  A Discovery of Witches  Dark Lover
I just love all of these books so much I would love to see them portrayed as a show or movie. Specifically shows because a movie wouldn’t give them enough justice with the limited time to cover the whole story.

3 Books You Never Finished

Seraphina  The Diviners by Libba Bray - Top Ten Tuesday  Beauty Queens
1. Seraphina: I DNF’d this because I just wasn’t into high fantasy back then. And I didn’t think I would ever be. I’ve been really reconsidering picking this back up sometime though because NOW it’s totally something I’d read!
2. The Diviners: I just could NOT get into this! I wasn’t into historical fiction at the time, and it just wasn’t working for me. I think I will give this another whirl eventually though. 
3. Beauty Queens: I really didn’t like this and didn’t get too far. I don’t think satire is really for me and I won’t give this one another shot, despite some rave reviews on it.

2 Favorite Love Doves

The Book of Life  The Art of Lainey
1. Diana and Matthew: Sigh. I just love this couple. Love. 
2. Lainey and Micah: AH, I severely fell in love with them. Definitely one of my favorite YA relationships <3

1 Book You Wish You Would Have Gotten Around to Reading in 2014

Ashes to Ashes
I really, really wanted to read this. And I even started it a few weeks ago but then I put it aside for something else. I will be reading this asap because I just need to know what happens!!

So those are my picks 🙂 Did you do the new countdown survey? Link up!!!

      Oh it’s so easy to forget books! On my wrap ups, since I’ve started reading everyone’s, I realized how many I have been forgetting about 😛

    I am really glad to see Get Even and The Perfectionists on your list. I have the ARCs sitting on my Kindle for the past 3 months because I thought it was going to be one of those basic books with stereotypes lol. After I read Beware the Wild, I’ll definitely get into those! Hopefully I’ll love it as much as you did. 🙂 Say What You Will was one of my fave books of 2014 as well! It was such an awesome contemporary read.

      They are both really good, I was surprised as well! I would hold off if you can though until the second books are out though lol. They both have HUGE cliffhangers! Say What You Will was definitely amazing 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it as well!
