I don’t have the time to reread the previous books in the series. I lose interest. Here is the top ten of said books in chronological order …

Usually, I’m not planning too far ahead but here are the books I really really really want to read in 2014 – and most of them are already preordered! Some of them are installments in a series I’m loving, some I found via Goodreads friends, and other drew me in by their gorgeous covers, or titles, or blurbs …
