December 3: Top Ten 2014 Releases I’m Dying To Read

black arts

1. Black Arts; Faith Hunter. I do adore Jane Yellowrock–she can be a little special when it comes to relationships, but I can forgive her that.

book of life

2. The Book of Life; Deborah Harkness. I want to know more about the lives of these characters–and I love the scholarly bent of the books, too.

3. Cast in Flame; Michelle Sagara. How Kaylin manages to get in so many scrapes and yet survive, I don’t know. But she does, and it is fascinating.


4. Cress; Marissa Meyer. More of the world of Cinder, please!

5. Firefight; Brian Sanderson. I loved Steelheart, and the world full of super-powered people, all of whom are evil. Why? I must know.

6. The Girl with the Wind-up Heart; Kady Cross. A fascinating steampunk world, full of interesting characters with lots and lots of problems.

half off ragnarok

7. Half-Off Ragnarok; Seanan McGuire. Love those cryptids, and the Price family, in all their assorted weirdness. Mice that worship people? Hilarious.

murder of crows

8. Murder of Crows; Anne Bishop. I can’t wait until I get to read more about the blood prophets, and truly scary monsters.

darkling sea

9. To Sail a Darkling Sea; John Ringo. Living zombies–at sea! Get them before they get you…

serpent of venice

10. The Serpent of Venice; Christopher Moore. He’s just one of my favorite authors–I’ll read anything by him.

    Oh, you have some great books in your list…some that were on mine, but some I need to add to my 2014 books I want to read! It’s always so fun to find new books and authors. Thank you!

    You’ve got some brilliant books on your list, and some I will definitely have to check out like Cress and The Girl With the Wind-up Heart (because that sounds like a really interesting title). Thanks for sharing your list 🙂

      Cress is book three in a kick-butt SciFi fairytale retelling, and Wind-up Heart is book four of an excellent steampunk story with a dash of the paranormal.

      So if you do chose to read them, you’ll have some books to keep you company before you have to wait for the new releases! 😉
