Here we are again, at the end of another year! As today is the last day of 2014, it’s time for my annual “Year in Review” post.
As of the writing of this post I’ve finished reading 182 books. 13 of those books were ones I read with my 7 month-old niece, so for argument’s sake let’s say 169. My starting goal was to read 130 books, so I’m counting 2014’s reading challenge as a completed success! That means adding another ten books to next year’s challenge for a total of 140 books! (Here’s to hoping I make it!)
And now the difficult part…picking my top ten reads of 2014!
March has been an absolutely crazy hectic month for me. As such the amount of time I’ve been able to dedicate to reading has been quite short. It’s the 22nd of the month and I’ve only read 5 books!! I guess I should be happy that my total is 5 and not 0. With such a small amount of books completed this month, I’m being realistic with what else I plan to complete this month. On my list is Attachments by Rainbow Rowell and City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare.
Attachments was Rowell’s first novel and is a true gem. After reading Eleanor & Parkand FangirlI was dying to read more. I’m literally on pins and needles awaiting her next novel Landline due out this July. City of Bones got bumped up my list after I saw The Mortal Instruments movie. I found the premise of the movie unique and found myself drawn to the characters (especially the heroine Clary.) Knowing I had the first book already in my bookshelves, I quickly grabbed it. The series is currently five books long, with the sixth and final installment due out May (I think I can catch up before then!)
Well readers, over to you. What are you all reading this month?
