Another year has come and gone which means that it’s time to participate in Two Chicks On Books, Reading YA Rocks, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and Tales of a Ravenous Reader annual TOP 10 OF 2014 week long meme. Not only do I love lists but these posts are easy to put together and schedule during the holidays so that I can spend time with my family. Enjoy!
|10. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
I adore the colour scheme of this cover, and the way the artist captured the parallel universes aspect of the story. Novel Nails Designs even created a matching manicure—check it out!

|09. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Black, red & white is always a winning combo with me, and I just love how the rose petals and the staircase blend together, it such a cool effect, plus it fits the Beauty and the Beast re-telling.

|08. Fireborn by Keri Arthur
I’m an Aries, so of course I’m drawn to fire. The full image is even more spectacular; I don’t know why Signet zoomed in on the model instead of using the whole thing.

|07. Shattered by Mari Mancusi
I participated in the cover reveal for this novel back in April, and I’m still drooling over it. That dragon is freaking awesome!

|06. Covenant: The Books of Raziel by Sabrina Benulis
I gave-up on this series after the first book because the angels were too preachy for me, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate the beautiful artwork.

|05. How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back by Diana Rowland
I like the contrast between the pink and the gory zombie body parts. I realize that this cover isn’t for everyone, but personally I think it’s the bomb!
Design by: Dan dos Santos
|04. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
This cover is such a looker! I love the colours, and how the ravens in the background tie-in to the previous installments in this series.

|03. City of Eternal Night by Kristen Painter
I knew that I had to own this novel the moment I saw that dress. It’s positively stunning, and the artist matched the author’s description to a T.

|02. The One by Kiera Cass
THE ONE definitely takes the cake for the prettiest girl in a dress of 2014. All of the covers in this series are amazing, it’s impossible to pick a favourite.

|01. Unhinged by A.G. Howard
For the second year in a row, the SPLINTERED series earns the top spot on my top 10 list. I LOVE all things Alice in Wonderland, and this artist nailed it!
