I have a problem. But I think it is a good problem as I have rediscovered reading. I’ve read books here or there, off and on, but haven’t quite been as consistent as I would like to be. Reading is a good thing, right? And I want to do more of it. With the warmth of summer comes the desire to fill my book bag and find the time to just read more. Lazy summer days are the perfect excuse to curl up in a comfy, cozy spot and get lots in a good book. So, I hopped on GoodReads a social site that I haven’t been very active on and
started adding began obsessively adding books to my must-read list. My problem came when I found myself with the inability to stop adding books to my list. As soon as I was about to click off, another cover would catch my eye. There are SO MANY good books on the shelves right now (and many I haven’t discovered yet) that I can’t wait to get my hands on them.
So I thought I would put together a list of books that I hope to finish reading in 2014. I know that I’m getting a VERY late start in my “reading challenge” and summer is only so long, which is why I’m giving myself till the end of the year to try and at least read 14 books by the end of the year. If you are on GoodReads I would love it if you would add me as a friend, even send me some recommended reads to check out (maybe they will make the list). If you are an avid reader and not already on GoodReads, it’s a great social networking site to share what you are currently reading, what you want to read, and what you have already read.
This list is a mixture of many different kinds of books. Some books are chosen off of previous books that I have read and liked, some that were recommended to me, some are based off of movies I want to see (Divergent) or TV series that I’m obsessed with (Orange is the New Black), while one is an unfinished read that I still need to complete that I’m not ready to give up on (Revenge Wears Prada), and few are new releases that are hot picks for the year. I tried to mix it up and pick a little bit of everything just to keep it interesting and just so that I wasn’t reading all of the same type or kind of book.
If you were to make a list of Must Read Books for 2014, what would you add to the list?
If you want to keep up with what I’m reading, be sure to check out my currently reading shelf on GoodReads and follow along with me on my 2014 Reading Goal.
Disclosure: this is NOT a sponsored post. I just really want to read more books.
