I have an Audible membership, which means I get at least one new audiobook a month. Sometimes I buy more, and I also borrow several from the library. On average, I go through one audiobook a week—two if they’re short.
So many awesome YA books are coming out in 2014 . . . so many that I already have my audiobooks scheduled for the whole year! Check out my list of most anticipated YA audiobooks:
January: Legend by Marie Lu (excellent end to the trilogy)
February: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi (just finished this last week; another great ending to a trilogy)
March: Cress by Marissa Meyer (this is already available, but I’m waiting impatiently for my next Audible credit)
April: Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor (desperate to find out how this trilogy ends!)
May: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare (the final book in the six-book series!)
June: River’s Deep by Erin Keyser Horn (the sequel to River’s Edge)
July: Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater (companion novel to the Shiver series)
August: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (the long-awaited third novel!)
September: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey (book 2 in the 5th Wave series)
October: Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan (the final book in the five-book series!)
November: Not Yet Named by Maggie Stiefvater (the third and final book of The Raven Cycle, title unknown)
December: Soul of Storm by Erin Keyser Horn (the third and final book of The Thunderbird Legacy)
Um, yeah, I did notice that two of these books are mine. But I have incredible narrators—Carin Gilfry for The River Immortals and Terri Doty for The Thunderbird Legacy—so you can bet that I want their creations in my audiobook collection. I’ll also be getting the Wings of Thunder audiobook, which will be available soon!
Looking at this 2014 list, I’m stunned to find that ten of the twelve books are the concluding books in a series. Ten! And all series that I love. What an amazing year for YA!
Two runner-ups that I’ll also be listening to in 2014: Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray (book 2 in the series; the first was an excellent audiobook) and The Young Elites by Marie Lu (the first of a new series, or it might be a standalone—not sure).
Any 2014 YA books you’re anticipating that aren’t on this list??
