Oops…I forgot to read these books in 2014.

unnamed[1]

Instead of going through pages and pages of my long TBR list from 2014 and roaming the shelves in the library, I decided to focus on the books I received at BEA last year. At BEA, there were several books going in that I wanted to grab. There were also books that were basically thrust into my hands. But these ten I didn’t expect to want and they are ones that I am sorry I didn’t get to in 2014.

The Birds of Pandemonium by Michele Raffin

All Days Are Night by Peter Stamm

The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes

Jackaby by William Ritter

Neverhome by Laird Hunt

Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly

How To Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

Rainey Royal by Dylan Landis

A Sudden Light by Garth Stein

  1. The Paying Guests was good, but if you haven’t read Sarah Waters yet, then don’t start there! Start with The Fingersmith. Going back through my wishlist/TBR I am overwhelmed by how many good books came out last year that I never got around to reading, and I read a lot of new releases and ARCs last year. I suppose that just means 2014 left a lot for us to continue to look forward to.

    • Thanks for the heads up Priscilla. I will definitely start with The Fingersmith. Seriously, was it a unusually phenomenal year for books and that’s why I missed so much? I read 100 books and like you many ARCs and still have so many on my TBR list. Something to look forward to, I guess.

  2. Great list! I’d like to get to “Neverhome,” “The Ship of Brides,” and “The Paying Guests.” I actually own “Fingersmith” but have yet to read it, and I’m glad I read the above comment about starting there! The only book on your list I’ve actually read so far is “A Sudden Light.” It was pretty good, though definitely not the fabulous 5-star read that “The Art of Racing in the Rain” was.
