Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week we are looking at my top ten 2014 releases I meant to read but didn’t.
1. All The Light We Cannot See by by Anthony Doerr.
All The Light We Cannot See is a historical fiction set during World War 2. It tells the story of a blind girl living in France and a German orphan.
2. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North.
This is a Groundhog Day type book about a man who lives and dies ten times, and close to the end of his eleventh life something changes.
3. The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton.
The Miniaturist is a historical fiction set in seventeenth century Amsterdam. It is about a couple moving into a new home and extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home.
4. Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey.
I really don’t know much about this, according to Goodreads it is about a character dealing with memory loss. I actually read a book like this last summer called White Lies (it wasn’t very good).
5. Landline by Rainbow Rowell.
This is Rainbow Rowell’s latest book. I’ve tried to buy it a couple of times but but it seems that my local Waterstones don’t have it. I couldn’t tell if they just didn’t stock it or if I was looking in the wrong part of the store.
6. Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
I was talking to my sister about this as the sequel just came out and apparently this book is fantastic. My sister basically told me I had to read it.
7. Mr Mercedes by Stephen King.
I read Revival by Stephen King which also came out in 2014 and I really wasn’t impressed with it. But according to the reviews on goodreads this book is really fantastic.
8. Station Eleven by Emily St, John Mandel.
I don’t know much about this other than its a dystopian. I was given actually given this for Christmas so I really should read it soon.
9. The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan.
This is a collection of essays and short stories published after the author; Marina Keegan died in a car crash five days after graduating from Yale in May 2012.
10. The Sleepwalkers Guide To Dancing by Mira Jacob.
To be honest I really don’t know much about this book, but I like the cover.
