Top Ten Tuesday

Posted January 13, 2015 by in General / 8 Comments

This week’s theme from The Broke and the Bookish is ‘Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To’. I probably just need to look back at my Netgalley account for this one, ha.

  1. Willful Child, Steven Erikson. A spoof on Star Trek, by Steven Erikson? Yes, please. I had this as an ARC, but… Yeah.
  2. The Mirror Empire, Kameron Hurley. I’m just hangin’ my head here, guys.
  3. Half a King, Joe Abercrombie. Uh, ditto.
  4. The Dead in their Vaulted Arches, Alan Bradley. Had an ARC. Am terrible. ’nuff said.
  5. Dreams of Gods and Monsters, Laini Taylor. I love this series. I think I might be a bit afraid to read the last book.
  6. Landline, Rainbow Rowell. In fairness, I didn’t ‘discover’ Rowell’s work until Landline was already due to come out.
  7. Illusive, Emily Lloyd-Jones. Superpowers! Heists! An ARC I still need to get round to…*
  8. The Girl With All The Gifts, M.R. Carey. I think I picked up a library copy of this near the start of 2014. I dread to look.
  9. Of Metal and Wishes, Sarah Fine. I’ve seen some mixed reviews, but I wanted to pick this up just from the cover… I don’t quite know why.
  10. The Falconer, Elizabeth May. I picked this up a few months ago and still haven’t got round to it. Gah.

There’s just too many books, too little time, am I right?

*I should perhaps at this point note that I will get round to every ARC I’ve received, though in many cases I have to order them from libraries or buy them now that they’re no longer available to download.

  1. I think I just needed to look at my Netgalley account too! There’s six books on your list that I never got round to either and one that I actually read (although I never wrote a review and I got it from NG…)

    Hope you get to read them soon 🙂

    • I started with and really liked Attachments, which I think was not specifically YA-ish (especially since there was a lot of nostalgia for stuff younger readers wouldn’t remember!); I’ve read her other books too, now, all except Landline.

  2. I’ve just picked up Landline from the library and I’m definitely looking forward to it! I’m the same with you for Dreams of Gods and Monsters – I just don’t want it to be over.

    Here’s my TTT.

  3. Hahah yes to your comment about Netgalley. The shame, I feel it too!!

    Looking up The Dead in their Vaulted Arches now… we seem to have similar reading tastes but I’ve never heard of this book. Awesome title, has me very curious.
