Top Ten Tuesday - 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get Round Too

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish who love list making an reading. Each week there is a different book related list to create and share with other bloggers and readers. This week the list was Top Ten Books from 2014 that you meant to read but just didn't quite manage too. For me this list could have been three times as long as were loads I really wanted to read. I've narrowed it down to the ones I've bought and not read yet or the ones I know I will be on the look out for this year.
What Would Mary Berry Do?
1. What Would Mary Berry Do? by Claire Sandy
This was one of the first books that caught me eye after I started blogging and I have a copy waiting for me to read. I'm thinking this will be the book I take with me to hospital in March as I'll be able to enjoy it in one sitting.
The Proposal
2. The Proposal by Tasmina Perry
This was the first book I received for review from bookbridgr but for some reason I've just not read it, despite longing for it to come out in paperback. I think this is a case of I have so much expectation that I don't want to be disappointed so I'm savouring it.
The Snow Angel
3.The Snow Angel by Lulu Taylor
This one I had a pre-order from practically the first day it was available but since it arrived I haven't had a chance to read it, definitely one to tackle soon as I just love Lulu's books.
One Night in Italy
4. One Night in Italy by Lucy Diamond
I have a copy of this sitting on my shelf kindly lent to me from a friend, will have to read it soon as I'm sure she'll want it back. The cover is even more beautiful in real life!
The Woman Who Stole My Life
5. The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes
I'm a huge Marian Keyes fan so really wanted to read this one, sadly I wasn't accepted to read the arc on Netgally and I'm not a huge hardback fan so will wait for a paperback copy to be published.
The Christmas Party
6. The Christmas Party by Carole Matthews
I have a copy of this which I never got round to read as I was hoping to start making a dent in books by Carole Matthews. Sadly I think this will be left on the shelf till next December but hopefully I make time to read a couple of others of hers which I have.
It’s Not Me, It’s You
7. It's Not Me, It's You by Mhairi MacFarlane
This one had such a brilliant plot that I'm gutted I didn't manage to read it last year. Hopefully I be able to pick it up once I've waded through the review books I have.
Shopaholic to the Stars
8. Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella
I'm super excited there is another "Shopaholic" book out there, I've yet to pick this up but will be top of my list in paperback in March.
It Started With Paris
9. It Started With Paris by Cathy Kelly
I loved the sound of this when it was released back in Octoberr, sadly so many other great books came out at the same time that I forgot about it. As I've recently become engaged myself I'm keen to read this as my family has gone a little crazy itself.
The Dead Wife's Handbook
10. The Dead Wife's Handbook by Hannah Beckerman
Everyone that read this seems to have loved it and it does sound so good, its definitely on my list of books to look out for this year.
So that is my list of the books I missed from last year. Did you read any of these? Which would you recommend I go back and pick up first? What is on your missed list from 2014.

  1. Great list! I haven't read any of them, but many have caught my eye and hopefully will get round to a few of them this year! I have a couple of Mhairi McFarlane books to read waiting for me on my Kindle, but haven't read anything by her yet - I've heard only good things, so I'm looking forward to them.

    Enjoy working your way through these! :)


    1. Thank you for stopping by, love the look of your list too! I haven't read any Mhairi McFarlane so hoping its good then I can try some others.

  2. Great list! I absolutely adore Sophie Kinsella. Have you read her series the Shopaholic?
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

    1. Thank you for stopping by, yes I love her Shopaholic series, one of my favourites.

  3. I know, I could have made a Top One Hundred list today! I haven't read any of the books on your list, but how cute are all those covers? Especially the first one. I may have to grab that book based on cover cuteness alone :)

    Happy TTT!
