Top Ten Tuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.

 So I went onto my goodreads to help me out with this weeks theme, because I can never remember what I have read and when I have read it, and I was super surprised at some of the new authors that I have only just read this year. Some of them I feel like I have been reading FOREVER! And then there are those few that I am kinda embarrassed to admit that it took me until 2014 to finally get round to reading something by them!


Colleen Hoover – This was one of the authors that upon finishing my first Colleen Hoover book I thought: “Why the hell have I never read these books before?!” And then very quickly picked up the next one! I love every book she has released so far and cannot wait for her new releases in 2015!

Stephanie Perkins – 2014 was the year that I FINALLY picked up the Anna & the French Kiss series and WOW was it worth the wait! Again, I can’t believe I waited so long! Can’t wait to read more by her.


Becca & Krista Ritchie – Checking back on my GR’s I couldn’t believe it when I discovered that I only started the Addicted series in January this year! I feel like I have been reading this series for years! So much love for the Ritchie sisters right now, so happy I discovered them!

Beth Revis – It feels like so long ago when I read the Across the Universe series, but what a series to introduce you to an author! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for another Beth Revis series just as incredible as her first!


Aven Ellis – Every time I reread Waiting on Price Harry (my first Aven Ellis book) I am so thankful that I remembered to check my emails on the day the ARC’s where announced because otherwise I probably would have never discovered the talent that is Aven! Plus, how awesome is her name?!

Non Pratt – Another author with an awesome name, I actually bought this book after seeing Non speaking at YALC this summer. I found her so entertaining and laughed so much that I immediately went over to her stand and bought her debut book. Such a gem!


Rainbow Rowell – It wasn’t until this summer and YALC that I finally picked up one of the Rainbow Rowell books that had been getting dusty on my bookshelf. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but actually surprised myself and now can’t wait to get my hands on more!

Gayle Foreman – WHY OH WHY have I waited so long to read a Gayle Foreman book?! Why is it only in 2014 that I am finally getting round to it?!?!?! Scary thing is that I own most of the books, but they are just sitting on my shelf! This year I read If I Stay, prompted to finally pick it up because I wanted to read it before seeing the film, and I am so glad that I did!


James Dashner – Another author I have been meaning to read for AGES but finally picked up this year because I wanted to read the book before the film came out! I devoured this entire series over a few days, but sadly still haven’t seen the film!

Cecelia Ahern – Same situation as James Dashner here, have been meaning to read her for ages, finally read one of her books because I had to read it before the film, and then never got round to seeing the film! I really should go to the movies more often!

    Krista and Becca Ritchieeeee! Same here. I can’t believe it’s only been a year. Also, Colleen Hoover and Rainbow Rowell were new to me too! I only read Maybe Someday and Fangirl by them but both were wonderful. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Yeay! Another Ritchie fan!!! I don’t know what I’m going to do when the Addicted series ends! 🙁 Not read Fangirl yet, will have to get on that one, but I LOVED Maybe Someday. So excited for her new releases next year!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    Great list! I often feel like I’m “behind the curve” on discovering certain authors. But you know what? Sometimes that works out to my advantage! That way I can go ahead and binge-read the whole series and not have to wait a year between books! Here’s my TTT. Happy reading!

    • Brocs Bookcase

      YES! This is exactly how I feel! I hate having to wait months for the next book to come out so this is always a much better way! Happy reading to you too! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

      I really have. I can’t believe I waited until this year to read Colleen Hoover, I didn’t know there was such an empty space in my life until the day I read that first page! Haha. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

      I loved Beth Revis this year. I’m really hoping for more from her soon. So exicted for Colleen Hoovers new releases next year! Totally fan girling over them right now! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
