¡Libros top del 2014!

¡Hola de nuevo! Ya que he publicado la gran entrada de los Favoritos del Mes y del año 2014 divido en secciones, pero me faltaba una muy muy importante, al menos para mí, y es la sección de libros favoritos de este año, la verdad es que he leído un montón, creo que incluso más que en el año 2013 lo cual me emociona bastante, por otro lado recordé que uno de mis propositos del año 2014 era comenzar a leer más libros en ingles y la verdad fue que fallé totalmente, porque si se trataba de leer en ingles quería hacerlo en físico, es decir tener el libro en mis manos y no en digital para así poder anotar las palabras, el caso es que me decepciona bastante porque en donde vivo conseguir libros en ingles es muy díficil pero creo que este año volverá a ser uno de mis propositos, de hecho creo que escribiré una entrada con ellos, así que ya veremos. En fin, esta entrada va de libros top del 2014, ninguno esta en un orden más importante que otro, solo para aclarar. 

Antes de comenzar, quiero aclarar que voy a colocar las sinopsis en Ingles porque yo usualmente trabajo con Goodreads que es donde publico mis reseñas (español) y también dejaré en un link mi perfil al igual que cada reseña de los libros que comenzaré a nombrar:

Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes: "When young, pretty Catherine Bailey meets Lee Brightman, she can't believe her luck. Gorgeous, charismatic, and a bit mysterious, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true.But what begins as flattering attention and spontaneous, passionate sex transforms into raging jealousy, and Catherine soon discovers that Lee's dazzling blue eyes and blond good looks hide a dark, violent nature. Disturbed by his increasingly erratic, controlling behavior, she tries to break it off; turning to her friends for support, she's stunned to find they don't believe her. 

Increasingly isolated and driven into the darkest corner of her world, a desperate Catherine plans a meticulous escape.Four years later, Lee is behind bars and Catherine—now Cathy—is trying to build a new life in a new city. Though her body has healed, the trauma of the past still haunts her. Then Stuart Richardson, her attractive new neighbor, moves in. Encouraging her to confront her fears, he sparks unexpected hope and the possibility of love and a normal life. Until the day the phone rings . . . "

Mi reseña: solo quiero decir adicionalmente a mi gran reseña de este libro, que es impresionante, la verdad me ha encantado. 

Inferno by Dan Brown: "Inferno touches on one of the most prominent global issues that people worldwide continuously neglect- overpopulation. Dan Brown masterfully takes his characters on a journey through Florence, Venice and Istanbul as they try to find the lethal virus that threatens to eradicate at least half of mankind. As they put the pieces together using Dante's fourteenth century collection of poems called The Divine Comedy and an eerie video left by the virus' creator Bertrand Zorbist, stark realities are brought to light and nothing is as it appears to be."

Mi reseña:

Collision by Stefne Miller: "Seven minutes inside a hotel room with a complete stranger. A friendly greeting where we pretend to know each other well and are genuinely happy to see each other; then straight to business. None of it meaningful. None of it real. All of it rehearsed, choreographed, and expected. My life isn't my own anymore. I pretty much go wherever I'm told and put on the show. It's my life and whether I chose it or not, it's the life I've got. It's the world I live in. And, I'm searching. Always searching... I just don't know what for. Cab Stone has it all-fame, fortune and the adoration of millions of women across the globe. When the constant attention from fans and expectations from his handlers becomes too much, he escapes the craziness of press junkets and movie sets and escapes to Asheville, North Carolina to hide away for the summer. He expects peace, quiet, and solitude. What he doesn't expect is to meet a fiery redhead who changes everything he knows about the world. The daughter of missionaries, Kei Sallee lives a life of service to others. She has little, expects less, and helps heal the hearts of thousands in Uganda, where she grew up. When she finds herself staying in the same guesthouse as Cab Stone, she vows to ignore his Greek god good looks and spend the summer as she had planneda "in peace, quiet, and solitude. Cab and Kei's lives couldn't be more different...or more the same. Despite, or perhaps because of, their vastly different yet startlingly similar backgrounds, Cab and Kei strike up an unlikely friendship that could possibly blossom into something more. But Kei fears that the truth about her past will prevent pretty-boy Cab, who is used to getting everything he wants, from fully committing to her. When two completely worlds experience a Collision, can they exist as one?"

Sweet Thing by Renée Carlino: "You have to teach your heart and mind how to sing together…then
you'll hear the sound of your soul. Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She's an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love. When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father's café, a treasured neighborhood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She's denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitarist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. 

When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions-for him, for music-but her father's legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.A "heartbreaking and romantic" (Aestas Book Blog) debut, Sweet Thing explores the intensity and complexities of first love and self-discovery."

Mi reseña: también para añadir este libro es totalmente divino, tiene 2 partes, las dos son igual de perfectas, de hecho la autora me escribió diciendome que le agradaba mucho lo que yo habia escrito en Goodreads y ese el era el por qué ella escribía, me pareció super dulce, y le prometí que lo recomendaría.

The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #3) by Michelle Hodkin: Leí este tercer libro que salió este año pasado, ya había esperado bastante, la verdad recomiendo totalmente esta trilogía, para no hacer spoiler colocaré la sinopsis del primero: 

"Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.  She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.  There is. She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. She's wrong."

Mis reseñas: 

Mara Dyer #1:
Mara Dyer #2:
Mara Dyer #3:

We were liars by E. Lockhart: Este libro literalmente me hizo preguntarme de todo, sé que en la sinopsis no se ve muy bien de qué trata y de hecho al principio del libro es complicado de entender, pero creeme que vale la pena, es totalmente diferente y refrescante.
A beautiful and distinguished family.

A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 
Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE."

Life in Outer Space by Sam Kinnison is a geek, and he’s totally fine with that. He has his horror movies, his nerdy friends, World of Warcraft – and until Princess Leia turns up in his bedroom, he doesn’t have to worry about girls.  Then Sam meets Camilla. She’s beautiful, friendly and completely irrelevant to his life. Sam is determined to ignore her, except that Camilla has a life of her own – and she’s decided that he’s going to be part of it. Sam believes that everything he needs to know he can learn from the movies ... but now it looks like he’s been watching the wrong ones." 

Me before you by Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time. "

Este libro es hermoso, vas a reír llorar, emocionarte, y aprender muchisimas cosas sobre el, uno de mis favoritos de todos los libros que he leído. 

Saga Lux (Obsidian) by : "Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something... unexpected happens.  The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. "

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, Eleanor Roosevelt: "Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank's remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the "Secret Annexe" of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death.
In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short. " 

¡Esto es todo, hasta la próxima entrada!
