    1. Three great novels, if you ask me! I love The Winner's Curse. And HA! I'm making your TBR explode ;D

  2. I'm so so envious of you having read The Winner's Curse and After The End!
    I hadn't heard of some of the books you have on your list, so I need to check them out!

  3. Oh yes, Fire and Flood... I forgot to put it on my list haha. I really need to read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea soon! I can't wait to see the covers that come out for your wait-list books haha. Thanks for sharing!

    Here's my Top Ten anticipated books at Bookmunchies (:

    1. It's a good one, I hear! And DO IT!

      I just had to include those six, even though they don't have covers. I can't wait to read them!

  4. Awesome list! I really need to check out some of them too, they all sound really good! Damn, I forgot to put BLACK ICE on my list! Hehe :)

  5. Don't Look Back looks very intriguing with that cover. Have added that one to my forever growing TBR. Thanks for sharing

    1. It does! And this one is animated (obviously, the print version won't be though LOL).

  6. Ah, Between the Spark and The Burn would probably be on mine if I got around to reading Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Which is on my shelf, I need to read it soon!
    I haven't read anything for Jennifer L. Armentrout but I want to soon. Personally I didn't like the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick which is why I'm wary of her work.

    Cool picks though :)

    1. READ IT!!

      And honestly, I ended up not loving the Hush, Hush series as a whole. Book one was AMAZING, in my opinion, but the next three were ehh. I cannot wait to read Black Ice because it is very different!

      Thank you!

  7. Oo that cover for the Between the Spark and the Burn is awesome. Don't Look Back yes yes. Anything JLA is fine by me :)

  8. Oh, I love your choices!! I am looking forward too The Walled City too!! I want to read her other book, All that glow. And I have Fire & Flood, Cruel Beauty, The Falconer, and a couple others on your list! It seems like we have the same taste! :D

    Thanks for visiting my Top 10 @ Addicted Readers!

    I hope you enjoy your New Year, and ring it in with some awesome books! Cheers! :D

  9. Ugh, I didn't even add ARC's I have and haven't read. My list was already too long. Looking forward to Don't Look Back too. The cover of Midnight Thief is gorgeous!

    1. LOL, I know what you mean. Yay for Don't Look Back! And the cover is great.

  10. Man there are so many on your list that I need to read, or should I say start! I feel so behind. The Midnight Thief sounds amazing just added it to my list. And I am sure Don't Look Back is going to be great. I love Jennifer Armentrout! Hope you get them all :)

    1. Don't feel behind! I tend to do a lot of pre-2014/2015/etc. searching of upcoming novels. I'm glad you are curious about them! Thank you so much, Danielle ^_^

  11. GAH just when I thought I had all the ones I'm so excited about, I see I've forgotten Don't Look Back! And I forgot Fire & Flood - boo to me! But it's impossible to make a list of 10 (or 13 in my case lol). My list would really be at least 50 books long of ones I can't wait to own. LOL

    Great list though. Some of those I can't wait to read, either. 2014 is going to be a good book year! :D

    1. LOL well, I am so glad to have helped in some way! I had like a billion I could have put on this list, but the ones with the pictures are the real ten. I'll have a complete list posted on January - it already has like, almost 100 books.

  12. Push and Between The Spark and the Burn are two that I can not wait to read! I have such high hopes for both of them =D

    1. YES! Those two sequels are going to rock so hard ;)

  13. Oo, wow! Great list, with some great covers! Unfortunately, the only one I can't look at is the moving cover of Don't Look Back. For some reason, those kinds of covers makes me feel sick. :P

    Looks you have a great line up for 2014!

    1. Ooo, that sucks, Kelsey. I would have never even considered that. I'm sorry! D:

  14. Oh! Don't Look Back! I went back and forth with adding it to my list, and then finally Nearly Gone won lol. I am so excited for that one!!! I have Rush yet, but I do have it so I am glad you liked it so much that Push made your list :) I need to pick that one up very soon! OMG BLACK ICE! I just searched that, and realized I added it to my tbr but didn't categorize it as 2014 so I had NO IDEA that it was coming out this year!!! I loveddddd Hush, Hush so I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!!! Happy Reading in 2014!!! Happy New Year <3

    1. Ooo, but Nearly Gone is supposed to be amazing though, so I understand. You MUST read Rush! And I feel like Black Ice is flying under the radar right now, but no matter! I personally cannot wait to read it.

      Happy New Year to you, Lauren!

  15. Awesome list! So many books without covers. Give us the covers, Publishers!!!!!

  16. I included White Hot Kiss but forgot about Don't Look Back. It is a given that I am excited about all JLA books! LOL I didn't included things without a cover though. I am definitely looking forward to more. I also have Cruel Beauty and a few other releases I didn't include. I loved Cruel Beauty! Thanks for stopping by My Top 10!

    1. We might as well just put a picture of JLA and call it a day, right?! And most of the books I am excited for don't have covers, so I couldn't just have four books listed LOL. Cruel Beauty was awesome!

  17. Fantastic list. These look so good. Some of these books are on my must read list. It was so hard to narrow the list down to 10. Great job.

  18. Yes!! Don't Look Back sounds so good! I completely forgot about Black Ice but I am really looking forward to that one as well. I hope you can get to Cruel Beauty soon! I absolutely adored that book! So so good. Love your picks!

    1. You're not alone! Perhaps when the cover of Black Ice is revealed, more people will remember it. I've already read Cruel Beauty!

  19. So excited for Don't Look Back, Push and the sequel to The Burning Sky! Hope the title is revealed soon :D
    I can't believe I forgot about Black Ice! Love Becca's writing and it sounds so intriguing.
    Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Titles AND covers! I need covers...

      And I hope you and I both enjoy Black Ice!

  20. Don't Look Backs's cover is creepy but really cool. Can't wait for that book, too. I love JLA! And also Sherry Thomas's second book on The Elemental trilogy - more Titus and Iolanthe!

    1. It is! I can't wait to see an ARC or finished copy or BOTH! And more TITUS please! :D

  21. Great list! I'm interested in reading most of these, too. Thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ooh great list! I'll have to look some of these up.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's such a good idea to leave off books you already have. I had to do that as well. Don't Look Back came so incredibly close to being in my top ten, but I replaced it with something I was a tiny bit more excited for. Thank you for stopping by my post. :)

    1. Right! Because then, you're not really looking forward to then coming out in 2014, because you have them LOL. I hope you read the books you are after, Kaitlin!

  24. O_O Oh my gosh, if I'd looked at your post earlier like I should have I would've gotten you Push today! I was at my bookstore that gives me ARCs and they had it! If I go back and they still have it and you don't have it, I will get it for you! Commenting back fail.

    And I am on the bandwagon for the second book in Sherry Thomas' series! I finished The Burning Sky last night--SO GOOD. And yay for Midnight Thief!! I definitely hope you get it soon. :)
