Shout out to Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld and Clariel by Garth Nix which were both very close to making the final cut! (And to Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo–I don’t think I’m getting my review of it written by the end of 2014 so watch for it on my 2015 list!)

This list is also a Pinterest board.

  1. I read THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE so early this year that I think it gets forgotten whenever I make lists like this :/ But it was seriously one of the best books of the year, one of my all-time contemporary faves, and one that I rec to teens all the time!

    • The way I keep track is I “pin” all of my reviews for books I really loved into a end of year favorites board and then when it gets to December I start cutting to ten. It’s the only way I keep track of everything I read.

  2. You’re in good company with your best of 2014 list! The Winner’s Curse, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, And We Stay, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, and Afterworlds are all on our 2014 Best of the Very Best list… and thus now all on my TBR pile :)

  3. Even though ours don’t overlap, The Winner’s Curse, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and All Our Yesterdays are honorable mentions for me for sure :D

    Okay, I’ve seen The Unbound on way too many lists today. I think that’s a sign that I should dust it off my shelf and read it.
