Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I've Read in 2014/Books on my Summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. Since I've missed a couple weeks worth of topics that I was really jazzed about, I figured I would replace this week's topic about book covers. And since I haven't read that many books in 2014, I thought I would include Books on my Summer TBR as well. So here is my Top Ten Books I've Read in 2014/Books on my summer TBR.

Books I've Read in 2014

1. Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison
What can I say about this book? I read it in my Women Writers class and absolutely loved it. I can't really explain why I loved it except it spoke to something deep within me. This books does deal with heavy stuff and does contain a lot of trigger warnings so keep that in mind.

2. Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
This is another book I read for school that I absolutely loved. This one is also spoke to something deep within me and I can't quite define why I liked it so much.

3. Split Second by Kasie West
I read Pivot Point last year and it did not disappoint.; the story was very engaging and I absolutely loved it as much as the first.

4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
This year, I finally finished the Divergent series, and while there were flaws with this book, I really enjoyed.

5. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
While the ending of this book did disappoint me, I still enjoyed the writing and the way the story unfolded.

Books on my Summer TBR

1. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
This book! I started it last summer and was really enjoying it before my trip to Philadelphia. Then, I come home and it had been returned to the library. I really want to get my hands on it and finish it this summer.

2. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I've had this book for awhile and have been wanting to read it. When I saw the trailer, I got excited about reading the book.

3. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I've been seeing this book everywhere this summer and I have been dying to read it.

4. The Athena Doctrine by John Gerzema and Michael D'Antonio
I saw this book recently and was very intrigued by it and would like to read it this summer.

5. The Secrets of Lily Graves by Sarah Strohmeyer
I read a review on this book recently and was interested in it. I've also read Sarah Strohmeyer before and really enjoyed it.
