  1. Jade @ Bedtime Bookworm

    I’ve seen some of these floating around the internet on other top lists, but some of them are new, which is refreshing. And I’m super stoked to see Glass Arrow on here TWICE. Can’t wait to read that! :)

  2. Amber Elise @ Du Livre

    I need to step my Sarah Fine game up! I hear her series is quite fabulous! :)

    I also just finished Defiance so I can’t wait to finish that series. I’ve got a thing for government takeovers! Haha. I’ve only read about three of the books that made your top ten, but I’ve seen you talk about Anne Bishop on more than one occasion so I’m definitely going to check her out!

    Happy New Year Jessi!

  3. EEEK! I’m so excited to see that Talon is in your top ten of the year. I bought this on a whim at the book fair simply because the cover was so beautiful I couldn’t stop petting it haha. I honestly had no idea what it was about when I bought it except dragons :P I’m also excited to read The Glass Arrow as well! OH! And The Body Electric :) I’m reading that right now so that’s thrilling to know it’s awesome!! I’m starting to get into fantasy much more as of late so I loved seeing this!

    I think my favorite favorite of the year was Throne of Glass! I just fell in love with this series and right now am about to start Crown of Midnight :)

    I hope you have an awesome reading year in 2015 Jessi and thanks for the giveaway opportunity as well <3

  4. Heir of fire was so epic. I still haven’t finished my review, because all it says now is ‘perfect, awesome, amazing, mindblowing.’ I love the cover from A thousand pieces of you. Empire of shadows has a pretty cover too and I really liked the story. I can’t wait to read The glass arrow!

    One of my favorites.. that’s hard, I made a top 15 on my blog.. but if I have to pick one I’m going for Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge :)

  5. My favorites were the Throne of Glass series, I read all the books out so far in it for the first time in 2014. I also loved the Raven Cycle- all the books out so far in it, again I read all those for the first time this year. My other huge favorite was All the Bright Places- which was just released this week but I read the ARC in 2014.
    I think I ended up posting around 15 books for my favorite books of the year post! So hard to choose!!

  6. Danielle

    My favorite books I read this year were the Shatter Me trilogy, The Mara Dyer trilogy, Pushing the Limits, and Ugly love!

  7. Carla Bosch

    My favourite book released in 2014 was Love Letters to the Dead, because it was so so touching. But my favourite book that I read in 2014 was probably The Book Thief, which has become one of my all-time favourite books! Thank you so much for the giveaways, there’s so many amazing books to choose from in your list!

  8. Stephanie H.

    My favorite urban fantasy series, The Hollows by Kim Harrison, ended in 2014 and had not only one but 2 releases. Both of which were great! I finally read the Throne of Glass series!!!! It seemed like several other favorite series end with great final installments such as Immortal Rules, Lux, and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I cannot wait to read some of the upcoming 2015 releases and I really need to get to Written in Red.

  9. Stolen Songbird, Angelfall, World After, Me Before You, The False Prince, Reboot, Doon and Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout are some of my favourites from 2014 :)

  10. Carol

    I really LOVED Angelfall and Love Letters To The Dead! I finally got around to read The Raven Boys and I really like it but I withold judgment until I read the next ones in the series!

  11. I actually have a lot of favorite books from last year but here are few: The Gateway Through Which They Came, First World Problems, The Break-Up Artist, How to Say Goodbye in Robot, Trust Me I’m Lying, Before They Find Us, and Don’t Expect Magic. Thanks so much for the giveaway! xo

  12. Michelle Lee

    I really loved Talon by Julie Kagawa and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas! I’m really into fantasies right now. Thank you for this amazing chance! :)
