Pam's Picks: This was an incredibly difficult Top Ten Tuesday because I've read so many great books this year. But here's my list, divided into different categories:
1. Best Contemporary Read This Year. It's a tie between To All the Boys I've Loved Before (read my review here) and Chapel Wars (read my review here). Both of these were 5 star reads for me.
2. Best Fantasy Read This Year. Again, it's a tie between Stolen Songbird (read my review here) and Kiss of Deception (my review is scheduled to post 6/16/2014). 5 star reviews, loved both of them!
3. Best Series Ender Read This Year. This was really tough, because I actually read a lot of great series enders, like Into the Still Blue, Infinite, Three, Ruins, and Dreams of Gods & Monsters. But I have to pick City of Heavenly Fire (read my review here).
4. Best New Paranormal Series. Again, it's a tie between Darkside Sun (read my review here) and White Hot Kiss (read my review here) (I mean, come on, it's JLA).
5. Best Book Read This Year That Lived Up to the Hype. The Winner's Curse. I wasn't sure if it would live up to the hype, but it completely deserved it and I loved it (read my review here).Sheri's Choices: Adding a few new categories
6. Best Series. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I know its been around for awhile but I was only able to read it recently and I loved every beautiful word. I wish I had read it before I started the Mortal Instruments series (read my review here).
7. Best Jane Austen Spin-Off. My Own Mr. Darcy, it's sweet and predictable but I thoroughly enjoyed it (read my review here).
8. Best Narration on Audible.The Precious Stone Trilogy by Kerstin Gier was such a wonderful series about a brave 16 year old girl who can travel through time. The narrator Marisa Calin has moved into my top list of voices to listen to (read my review here).
9. Best Book Published in 2014. Cress (review) by Marissa Meyer was one of my most highly anticipated books in 2014 and it was worth the wait. If only I didn't have to wait until February 2015 for Winter.
10. Best Return to A World. Having just recently completed the Beautiful Creatures series I was so excited to read more about Link and Ridley in Dangerous Creatures (review).
