First Book Haul of 2014!!

My First Book Haul  of 2014 is here!!!


I have to admit something.. this is actually my (very) late December book haul, but I thought I'm just going to pretend it's for 2014.

 All the books in this book haul are presents that I've received in December, with one exception. I'm so happy I got all these books and I'm very excited to read them in 2014!

Lord of the Rings trilogy 
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien


I've always wanted to  buy this trilogy, because I loved the movie adaptations. I bumped into these editions in sale and I just had to get them. They're Dutch editions, because I thought it would be better to read this very complicated story in my own language. Maybe some day I'll read it in English. 
The Mortal Instruments series
Author: Cassandra Clare


For Christmas I asked for the books of the Mortal Instruments series and I got them!! I only owned the first one, City of Bones, in Dutch and really wanted to complete this series. The only one that's still missing is the 6th book, City of Heavenly Fire, that will be released in  May 2014. I'm so happy to start reading this series and hope I will love it.  I haven't seen the movie because I want to read the books first.

The short second life of Bree Tanner
Author: Stephenie Meyer

A while ago I bought the Twilight Saga box on sale. I haven't read it yet, but I'm planning on reading it this year, so I thought this little book would be a nice addition to my Twilight stuff.
I'm really curious to read the Twilight Saga and compare the books to the movies.  This is the Dutch version because I own the Twilight Saga in Dutch as well.
The Fifth Wave
Author: Rick Yancey


I'v heard so many good things about this book, that I really want to check it out. I was so excited when I got this one ! Somehow I didn't expect it to be a huge book(which it is). This is also the Dutch version. 







Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth

And last but not least, I got DIVERGENT!!! It feels like I'm the last person on the planet who hasn't read this trilogy yet.
This is the only book I got in English and I'm very excited!!! 



That's all, now I need your help. The new ones I put on my to-read shelf, but I don't know where to start now. Which one of these books should I read first? Please let me know in the comments, thanks!

This is my current to-read shelf
