Top 10 Books I’ve Read So Far in 2014

Top 10 Books I’ve Read So Far in 2014


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish. I love the topic of this week’s list: the Top 10 Books I’ve Read So Far in 2014. My reading goal for 2014 is 200 books, not counting picture books. 200 books is more than I’ve managed to finish in a year before, but I am on track to reach that goal. I’ve read 86 books so far, again not counting picture books. Limiting myself to just 10 favorite titles proved impossible: I decided to make a fat list of 12. Lists should always have bonuses, right?

    • I never feel too badly if I don’t follow through on a reading goal, though I have a feeling I’m going to make a wild push in December to get to 200 even if it seems unlikely. Go, chapter books! I don’t think I’ve ever hit 200 either. I did get close last year–in the 180s–which is what inspired me to go for 200 this year.

    • I really want to read Nina Lacour’s new novel. Might have to break down and order. I constantly tell myself to stop ordering books and you can imagine about how well that goes over. Grasshopper Jungle is completely insane! It’s one I’ll be thinking about for awhile.

  1. Yaqui Delgado is on both your list and Kellee’s list. I guess I better check it out! I love Matthew Quick. He is definitely one of my favorite YA authors. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!
