Favorite 2014 Reads NOT published in 2014


It's time to reflect on my year of reading. Since I had at least 40 books on my "favorites" shelf this year, I decided to split it up a bit.


First post up is a set of books that were NOT published in 2014.

Follow the links to the Goodreads description and to add them to your reading list!


Middle Grades:

Counting by 7s 













Green Glass Sea
With huge thanks to Shannon Houghton for making sure I didn't miss this historical fiction gem.












Young Adult

Cinder

Want to take a guess what is going to show up on the 2014 published young adult list? Yes, Cress also made the cut.










Scarlet














The Archived

Kathy and I did this one for Batty About Books. We both ended up with red Converse high tops. Read the book to figure out why :)











Broke My Heart (and also young adult)

Wintergirls













Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass

(I listened to this one as an audiobook. Very well done!)












The Book Thief 
Another amazing audiobook. Yeah, yeah... I know it took me a long time to get to this one.












Creepy Tales of Science Fiction (young adult)

Monsters of Men
So glad I finally finished this series. I listened to this one - and I highly recommend the narrators.











The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

Not for squeamish readers, and definitely for older young adult readers. I love vampire novels, and this one has some great additions and changes to traditional vampire lore.
