2014 reading list

What's on your reading list this year?

I set a goal for myself on GoodReads to read 26 books in 2014. In 2013, I only read about 20 books... how disappointing! The year before that, I was at 35! Candy Crush has seriously got to go from my life.

These are amazing picks!

Some really good ones in the mix there. I loved memoirs of a Geisha it's such a beautiful and powerful book, beware of the tears with that one. Salem falls is another good one but then I pretty much love Jodi!
I gave myself a task between my last birthday and this years to read 50 books I am so far on 14 need to get myself in gear. x

I love these books. I need to get to reading. I have so many books in my wish list. #bookwormproblems.

I have set a goal of reading a few new authors each month. Trying to step outside of my book box. LOL

I haven't read any of these, but I am dying to read Wild & Full Frontal Feminism! Also the Book Thief before I see the movie. Can't wait to read the reviews!!

Wild and Chelsea Handler's new book are on my to-read list, too! I'm also listening to Jenny Lawson's memoir on audiobook as we speak. I read Seriously, I'm Kidding a couple years ago and as much as I love Ellen, I wasn't a huge fan of the book. I'll be curious to see what you think!

Britt said...

Awesome picks!
Memoirs is one of my favorites :)
I also want to read Miss Peregrine's!

Toni-Louise said...

Wow! That is one impressive reading list! Feeling very inspired by it. :) x

Melissa Batzer said...

What a great list! I have one too... I have already read "I am Malala" and am currently reading "The Book Thief"! Happy Reading!

I read the Outlander series a few years ago and stopped after the 4th...might pick it up again someday though. I'm currently reading the Book Thief and love it so far! I made my goal 30 books on Goodreads! I also LOVED Memoirs of a Geisha a few years ago and Jane Eyre is wonderful, especially now that the movie is out too :) Great list!!!

Memoirs of a Geisha was one of my favorite books of 2013!! And Jodi Picoult is always a favorite. :)

This is a great collection! I've read Full Frontal Feminism, The Book Thief, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and they're absolutely worth being on the list. Great reads.

Memoirs of a Geisha is really good! And I absolutely love the books by Diana Gabaldon.

Brittany Leigh said...

I just bought Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children today! I can't wait to start reading it, sounds a little creepy. Too weird I just found your blog!

I read Ellen's book (most of it) and I am sad to say that as much as I LOVE Ellen(a LOT) it didn't have a lot of anything in it… it was like reading random thoughts, which were sometimes funny, but I guess I expected more. but maybe that is just me. And I started reading Wild. It was good, but again I didn't finish it. I'm so picky when it comes to books, it has to be an absolute page turner or else I get bored. i'm excited to see what you think of them though! I hope we get reports!
