Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Releases I’m Dying To Read

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday brought to you by thebrokeandthebookish.com.

This week’s theme is 2014 releases I’m dying to read. Hrmmmm. They’d mostly be sequels, I think. But let’s take a gander at my Goodreads shelf.

Nafiza’s Waiting and Waiting and Waiting for:

  1. Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #3) – Laini Taylor
    I didn’t like book 1 but I loved book 2 so I’m really very curious about what book 3 is going to look like. Plus war. There’s going to be war. Of the demons and angels kind. Let’s burn some feathers! (The demons may be the good guys here.)
  2. Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray
    The sequel to The Diviners and yes, the cover looks TERRIBLE but that doesn’t mean the insides won’t be amazing.
  3. The Creature of Moonlight – Rebecca Hahn
    Okay, this sounds suspiciously like Seraphina which I love but I’m still excited about it because, look, dragons. Half-girl, half-dragon. Whoo.
  4. Midnight Thief – Livia Blackburne
    This is a 2014 debut novel feature a midnight thief, some dirty streets, danger and no dragons but still, the synopsis is win as is the cover and I want to read it now.
  5. The Cracks in the Kingdom – Jaclyn Moriarty
    So I didn’t completely enjoy the first one in the series but I loved the ending bits and plus, it’s Moriarty, you guys! I’m EXCITED!

Um. I have no idea what will come out in 2014.

Oh, wait, I thought of something.

Haskell      Zita     avatar-search-2-3

  1. I am looking forward to the next (and last) installment of Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl series, Return of Zita the Spacegirl. The only sad thing is that this will, I believe, be the last of the Zita stories. Which is good, because Hatke clearly had/has a story arc, so I can expect that this third will be as excellent as the first two. But it is bad, because I want more of Zita and Mouse, Piper, Madrigal, Glissando, Strong-Strong, One…
  2. Clariel: The Lost Abhorsen by Garth Nix. So this one will be a bit of a downer, because it tells the story of how Clariel, Abhorsen or Abhorsen-in-Waiting, becomes the necromancer Chlorr of the Mask. But! More of the Old Kingdom! I’ve been wondering, since I read Abhorsen, about Chlorr’s backstory, because Mogget really does give a lot away. Nix has been quite a while in writing this one, but the last I heard, Clariel was slated to come out in September 2014. Here’s hoping!
  3. I was told today that parts two and three of Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Search have (finally) come out, so they’re not really 2014 releases. But it will almost certainly be 2014 before I get to read them, so…
  4. I’ve said this before, but I’m excited about Merrie Haskell’s The Castle Behind Thorns.

Steph eagerly awaits…

1. Undivided by Neal Shusterman – number 4 in the Unwind series! I want to be creeped out even more! ^_^

2. The 6th instalment of Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi – expected Setpember 2014

3. Raging Star, Dustlands #3 by our Canadian Moira Young.

4. The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness – so stoked!

5. After the End by Amy Plum – you saw this in the cover wars. I’m a little excited. What are these wolves/coyotes all about?

6. The Castle Behind Thorns by Merrie Haskell – I’m intrigued and I liked Handbook for Dragonslayers and I googled what was coming out next year and this came up! ^_^

Yash Is Trying To Stay Calm About The Following 2014 Releases:

  1. Hollow City by Ranson Riggs: The sequel to the wonderfully creepy Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
  2. Through the Woods by Emily Carroll: God, I love Emily Carroll. She is intelligent and talented and beautiful and scary and I love her.
  3. This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki: I’m sorry, but who isn’t looking forward to this one?!
  4. Book 3 in the Raven Cycle / The Book That Shall Not Be Named / Untitled by Maggie Stiefvater: Goodreads lists it as a 2014 release, but Goodreads is pretty good at raising my hope and then dashing them to the ground, so …
  5. The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson: You already know how much I love the Shades of London series and … is it just me, or does the title sound a bit, erm, well, off? No? Okay. I’ll make my peace with it.
