2014 WoWs: Worth the Wait?

The Waiting On Wednesday meme hosted by Breaking the Spine is my favorite weekly feature to post. I do it rather religiously, really, and have barely missed a Wednesday since I started blogging seriously in January 2013. For those who don't know, WoW is the chance for avid readers to spotlight yet-to-be-released titles they are really excited to read. But when those titles finally release and we finally get to read them, were they actually worth the wait? Here's how my 2014 WoW picks measured up!

It's exciting just how many were worth the wait this year!! Although unfortunately there were quite a few disappointments as well, most of them serious disappointments (I'm still sniffling over The Fourth Wish)The rest of my 2014 WoW picks are either 2015 titles I have yet to get my hands on, or reads I just haven't been able to get to yet. So many reads, so little time...

So have you read any of these? What did you think of them? 



Thank you to Inspiring Insomnia for letting me swipe the idea for this post!

  1. I loved On The Fence and Erased. The Archived series is one of my all time favorites. I was able to meet Victoria Schwab last spring and she is awesome!

  2. Wow. You didn't like the Winner's Curse. I haven't read it, but it feels like everybody is raving about it. I love Kasie West. Thanks for sharing.
