On My Shelf • Reading in 2014

Monday, January 27, 2014


I'm always on the hunt for a good book recommendation. I have over 470 books on my 'to read' shelf on goodreads and I still keep finding more which makes it incredibly hard for me to choose just one book to read at a time. Each year I make a list of books that are top priority. It's kind of nerdy, but I'm an obsessive list maker and it shortens my time spent standing in the library with a stack of fifteen books trying to narrow it down. Last year I set a goal to read 20 books by the end of the year - it was my first time ever setting a conscious goal to read more and it worked. I ended up reading 25 or so, and I thought I would set that same goal again for this year since it was easily attainable, but kept me reading at a fairly consistent pace. I like put a variety of books on this list because there are so many classics I haven't read, best sellers I miss out on if I focus on too many classics, etc. - and I like to throw in a few parenting books to keep some constant encouragement and inspiration going on in that area of my life. So here are fifteen books I plan to read this year - if you're interested in seeing the rest of the list, head over to my 2014 bookshelf on goodreads.


I just finished French Kids Eat Everything (which was decent - worth reading) and I'm about halfway through Half Broke Horses. What are you reading right now/plan on reading this year? What are some of your favorite books that you've read in the past?
