Happy New Year!!

Can you believe it is another new year already? I can't! This year flew by so quickly.

With the new year also comes lots of new releases and I don't know about you but I am super excited for all of them. 2014 promises to be a very book filled year indeed.

I wanted to take this moment to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

This year the only resolutions I am setting is to finally dig into that TBR pile of mine and get some of those books that have been waiting forever for me to pick up, read. I have so many series and authors I have been dying to read and just haven't had the time for, well, no more.

2014 for me is going to be all about the TBR pile, so, wish me luck!! 

Here are a few great books I am looking forward to finally reading:

Can you believe I still haven't read this one? I have heard so many great things about it that I just can't put it off any longer, I must get to it this year, hopefully sooner rather than later.

I have no idea why I keep putting this one off but I do, I so want to read it so I am making time this year to finally get it read!

I have a rule that I have to read the book before I can watch the movie and this is one book that I want to watch the movie of so, I will definitely be reading this one soon. Plus my oldest wants to read it as well and I thought it would be fun to read it together. I am hoping it is one we will both enjoy. 

I read the first book and the novella for this series and loved it but I have never made the time to continue but I need a hot reaper in my life so I am going to make this series a priority and get to them all soon.

So many trusted bloggers and friends have recommended this series to me and I think it is about time I finally picked it up and tried it. Heck, I have bought all the books, I just need to actually open them now.

So, those are my top 5 books that really are a must read for the new year but honestly, I have about a hundred that I am dying to get to. Series that have been put on hold like The Hollows, Kate Daniels, In Death, Chicagoland Vampires, The Elementals, and so many more that I would be here all day trying to name them all.

I love blog tours and ARCs, I really do and while I won't stop reading them I am going to try my hardest to make time for those books I have been buying and that are just sitting there.

What book plans do you have this year? Going to read more ARCs? Take more chances on Blog Tours or are you like me and finally going to put a dent in that TBR pile? 

I would love to know what your top 5 must reads are for this coming year!


  1. Happy New Year Ali :) I hope 2014 brings you boundless joy! Now hop on over to my blog and sign up for Take Control in March so you can tackle your tbr pile :) LOL

  3. Happy new year! I'm looking forward to reading the first two books you listed too.

  4. Second Grave on the Left is one that I need to read too. Maja gifted me a copy of the first book and I really enjoyed it, but I haven't had a chance to continue with the series yet. And The Book Thief! It's a favourite of mine. I really hope it works for you. :) Have a lovely 2014, Ali, and good luck tackling that TBR pile!

  5. And a Happy new year to you! The book Thief will just blow your mind! Some of the books I want to read this year are actually new releases. There are way too many for me to actually mention! Gah, this is going to be one exciting year!

  6. Ha - I need to read those all except Hounded. I hope you love that one though. There are so many books that are part of a series that I'm looking forward too. I really should compile a list just so I know.

    Happy New Year! :)

  7. Glad I'm not the only one Christy! Happy New Year!

  8. Happy New Year! I need to make this year all about my TBR too. I'm not sure how it'll go but my first book of the year is one that I pulled from my shelf that I've owned for awhile, so that's a good first step!

  9. I would say that is a great start Candace!

  10. Happy New Year to you! I haven't read any of those books either, and I've had Hopeless and the rest of the series it seems like forever. There are so many books that I want to read this year. I am really going to try my best to cut back on review books and catch up.

  11. yes yes yes go read second grave now! you must... cough heh I love that series sorry. The top two books are on my list this year too! Happy New Year Ali :)

  12. Sorry I'm late to the dance on this one, but Happy new year!!! :-) You've got a great list of must reads here. I can say you definitely won't regret these choices. My goals are to slow down on blog tours and read my TBR must reads too. Now to pick the ones I've been neglecting for too long, there are so many of them! :-) Happy reading!
