2014 Top Ten



Happy holidays, teen peeps! In the better late than never category, here is my top ten list, delivered like a present to your email, Twitter or Pinterest right on December 25th. Please note that there has been absolutely no attempt to balance this list by age, gender or genre. These are just my “from-the-gut” favorites of the books I read this year. (While I love all my Top Ten books the same, I just might love I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN a tiny bit more:) Click on the title to go right to the review.

Carroll, Emily. Through the Woods.

Fleming, Candace. The Family Romanov.

King, A.S. Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future.

Lockhart, E. We Were Liars.

Nelson, Jandy. I’ll Give You the Sun.

Nelson, Marilyn. How I Discovered Poetry.

Perkins, Stephanie. Isla and the Happily Ever After.

Tamaki, Jillian and Mariko Tamaki. This One Summer.

  3. Hi Jen,

    My best book of the year (cheating because I didn’t read it till 2015) was I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. It blew me away, and more than a few tears were shed. Other top ones were Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas and Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier. Also loved the Starbound trilogy.
