2014 Must Be Mine List

Right. First things first. Time to kick off the year with my 2014 Must Be Mine list:




And no covers yet on these, but they will be mine just the same:

The Raven Cycle #3  by Maggie Stiefvater
The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas
Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

What about you guys? Dying to read any of these, too? What's on your 2014 list?

  1. You always do this to me! Make me think of books that haven't EVEN come out yet.
    And help me discover ones I didn't even know were a thought in someone's mind.
    You sly devilish woman.

  3. Yes to Cress, Night Broken, and Magic Breaks! I had totally forgotten about Isla coming out this year. And I am absolutely dying to read Murder of Crows. I loved Written in Red so much. I'm also impatiently waiting for Jenn Bennet's 3rd Arcadia Bell book, although I can't think of the title at the moment. It's going to be a good book year. :)

    1. I was surprised at how into Written in Red I was. Can't wait to get back to that world and those people.

    Oh, really good list!

    That ISLA cover is growing on me - I really liked the original ANNA and LOLA covers, but yeah, I can see all the three new covers going very nicely together.

    The Anne Bishop and Sarah Rees Brennan books are on my list as well - the SRB especially!

    1. I know. I had feelings both ways, and I would have loved to have seen what they did with a Lola cover matching the original hardcovers.

      Especially the SRB!!!

  5. Man, what a great list! I have a similar list. I didn't know about some of these though (like Rainbow Rowell's new book) or Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater. Will add those to my list.

    1. Sinner is going to kill me dead. I just know it.

  6. I have Lost Lake, Landline, Tell the Wind and Fire and both Maggie books on my MUST have list. As well as Fangirl, Shimmer by Paula Weston, These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner, Anomaly by Caroline Richmond and I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. So many great books out this year!

    1. I just received a copy of These Broken Stars! Really looking forward to starting it. Just as soon as I finish my spontaneous Fangirl re-read. THAT. BOOK.

  7. Yes, at least half are on my list two, so I'm off to check out the other half, because I'm sure I will want them as well! :--)

    Love your list and I love the title of it!!
    LOL
    We have a few of the same, though I have to admit that i'm kind of over Isla and the Happily Ever After, I think that I've waited so long for that book that no matter what it is it won't be good enough :(
    I'm really excited for the next Huntley Fitzpatrick too, and even more because next year she's writing Tim's story.

    1. LOL. I hear ya re: Lola. How long have we been waiting now? Although, it does sound as though she's had a rough go of it over this book and I sympathize with that. Can't imagine the pressure of a fandom.

      TIM'S STORY. Yes, please.

      Delete
  9. Isla, Mercy, Sarra Manning, Lost Lake, the SRB book and OMIGOD SINNER! I cannot wait for all of those.

    I'm also looking forward to the other two books in Molly O'Keefe's new contemporary series and both of the Mhairi McFarlane books out in the US this year (I read one on new year's day and really liked it). And Liza Palmer's Heroine, which is a late 2014/early 2015 release, sooooo I'll be dying waiting for an entire year.

    1. SINNER.

      I really am going to read Crazy Thing Called Love soon. I've been eyeing Heroine. Would love a December release on that one!

  10. Lost Lake, Isla, It Felt Like a Kiss, Magic Breaks, Raven Cycle #3, and The Perilous Sea are all on my list too. Plus the latest Sebastian St. Cyr mystery (not as good as the Lady Julia books but I love the main female character, Hero -- she's the reason I've kept with them), My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas, and Deanna Raybourn's next standalone, City of Jasmine.

    Also, Sarra Manning just said on twitter that It Felt Like a Kiss will be available in the US via Amazon!

    1. Wow. There are a lot of those St. Cyr books out. I should probably give the first one a go. I didn't know that was the name of the next Sherry Thomas! Very excited. When is it out?

      Publishers: please to be facilitating my Sarra Manning needs on this side of the pond. THANK YOU.

      Delete
    2. The first St Cyr book is like The Fugitive. The third book, I found part of the mystery REALLY disturbing (and there's a plot twist that comes from nowhere and is OTT). The fourth book is when Hero starts to get more page time.

      No release date for Sherry Thomas yet -- fingers crossed for late 2014.

      I have you to thank for introducing me to Sarra Manning! I really hope putting her NA books on Amazon will lead lots of readers to them.

    3. It Felt Like a Kiss is on Amazon!! Wish I could start reading it RIGHT NOW.

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Fall Boys & Dizzy in Paradiseby Jandy Nelson

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
