Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Top Ten 2014 Releases We Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To
It is 2015, but that isn’t stopping us from reading these 2014 books!
This was the hardest Top Ten Tuesday that I have done in awhile. There are so many books I want to get to! I decided to do it by category. I do have adult books on my 2014 TBR list, but I decided to do two YA books because that list is so much longer!
1. Picture Book: The Girl and her Bicycle by Mark Pett
Everyone has been raving about this book. I am looking forward to it.
2. Middle Grade: Gracefully Grayson by Ami Polonsky
The topic of this book is so important. I will definitely be reading it this year.
3. Young Adult: Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King
I read everything A.S. King writes, and I didn’t read this one right when it comes out, but I just got it for Christmas, so I will be reading it soon!
4. Young Adult: I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Several friends have recommended this book to me. I just need to nab a copy of it!
5. Nonfiction: Dreaming in Indian edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Leatherdale
I received the ARC of this book from NetGalley, and it expired before I got to it, so I asked for it for Christmas. It looks fantastic!
I always have so many books that I planned on reading each year that I didn’t get to. For this list, I decided to look at the New York Times Notable Children’s Books and list the ones I had wanted to read but didn’t get to.
1. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I want to know the ending that everyone keeps mentioning!
2. Noggin by John Corey Whaley
A National Book Award finalist by a Printz Award winning author with a super unique premise? It has to be good.
3. The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson
Laurie Halse Anderson. That is all.
4. The Port Chicago 50 by Steve Sheinkin
Another National Book Award finalist! The premise of this book seems so unbelieveable, but it is the exact opposite: nonfiction. Intriguing!
5. The Madman of Piney Woods by Christopher Paul Curtis
I loved hearing Christopher Paul Curtis speak at ALAN (and meeting him!), and I have loved everything of his I’ve read. I look forward to this one.
Which 2014 books do you hope to read in 2015?
