Belinda’s Book Nook: Top Ten Tuesday – 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers.

Now when I saw the topic for this week’s Top Ten, I sadly realized not only could I pick 10 books but that I probably own and haven’t read them. And yes, after compiling this list, I found that it was true. So here are 10 books that I presently own in physical or ebook format that came out in 2014 and I didn’t get around to reading and if you want a description, click on the cover or the title and it will take you to GoodReads with all the information:


1. A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett

2. Belle: The Slave Daughter and the Lord Chief Justice by Paula Byrne

3. Til’ the Well Runs Dry by Lauren Francis-Sharma

4. A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

5. Boy Snow Bird by Helen Oyeyemi


6. The Glass Sentence (The Mapmaker’s Trilogy #1) by S.E. Grove


7. The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest that will Bring Purpose to your Life by Chris guillebeau

8. The Promise of a Pencil by Adam Braun

9. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

10. Radiance of Tomorrow by Ishmael Beah

Well there’s my list. Are there any books you wanted read that came out in 2014 and never got to them?

Happy reading my friends!



  1. Belle is one that I’m really intrigued to read, but haven’t actually added it to my TBR yet, think I need to do that.
    Check out my Top 10

    • Yes and I keep meaning to watch the movie adaption of Belle but want to wait until I read the book first. Because you know the book is always better!

  2. I read the Queen of the Tearling and while I didn’t think it was perfect, it was enjoyable and I’ll be looking forward to the sequel. I definitely want to eventually read Boy Snow Bird — I love a literary twist on a fairy tale!

    • Cinder was my first opportunity to read a re-telling of a fairy tale and I loved it! So I am hoping that Boy Snow Bird will be as enjoyable.

  3. Wow, most of these are all new to me but some of them sound great! Thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT
