A Look Back: Kaitlin’s Top 10 of 2014

2014 has been a year rich with reading for me. I started Dark Faerie Tales late in 2013 and ever since joining the blog, I’ve been reading a lot more to try to keep up with the ever-growing pile of TBR. These are some of my favorites from this year. I kept it to books that I reviewed rather than read for pleasure.

1. Snow Likes Ashes by Sarah Raasch


This debut, even with my high expectations, pleasantly surprised me. I was so amazed by the characters, settings, and world building that I couldn’t help devouring it. I even bought myself a signed copy from Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore! I cannot wait for the second book and to see how the story unfolds.

2. The Jewel by Amy Ewing

The Jewel

Though I had problems with the love interest, I really did enjoy this debut. It was beautifully written and the world was artfully created. Not to mention that cover, look at it! It’s absolutely breathtaking and I don’t know how book 2 ‘s cover will top it. The first book left at a major reveal and I cannot wait to discover more.

3. Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule

Strange Sweet Song

The writing was so lyrical and wonderful that my attention was captured from page one. I loved Sing’s development and the originality of the story and how the author crafted her own legend.

4. The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz

The Dark World

I had heard good things about this author’s previous works and I was impressed by this! A cool plotline and awesome characters, not to mention a cute romance, made me definitely invested in this novel. Personally I don’t believe the cover shows the amazingness of the words inside!

5. Hexed by Michelle Krys


This was a really really good book. I loved the romance and snarky conversations. It was hilarious, through and through. I loved the character development for Indie. I recently read book two as well and I must say it was just as amazing as I expected it to be!

6. A Creature of Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn

A Creature of Moonlight

It was the writing style to this book that captivated me so mud. It was so unique, so utterly unique, and I couldn’t keep from loving it.

7. The Witch Finder by Ruth Warburton

Witch Finder

I remember reading this soon after finishing The Winner’s Curse. I loved that one, but there was something about this book that made me love it more than that one. It was very similar in plot aspects and storyline so I couldn’t help making comparisons as I read it to The Winner’s Curse, but it still blew me away.

8. Switched by Cassie Mae


I really enjoyed this cute, fluffy contemporary. It made me so happy and was a quick little read. I still think about it sometimes, even though I read it so long ago. That’s the mark of a book I really enjoyed!

9. Wicked Games by Sean Olin

Wicked Games

This dark, enthralling book stayed with me for days after. It was engaging and action-packed. The ending was surprising, heartbreaking, and such a twist, bringing the plot full circle. The mystery reigned me in.

10. Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

Death Sworn

This is a smooth blend of mystery, romance, and dark magic. The twist at the end leaves a huge cliffhanger and I haven’t managed to get my hands on the second, unfortunately.
