My Life :: 2014 Reads


Well hello friends!  I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend.  I will be spending the morning working on one of my resolutions {this year, and every year} of reading more books.  In the past few years I have become more and more of a bookworm, but even though I think I did quite well last year I'm hoping to read even more in 2014.  My goal is one book a week {however, this may change depending on the book...ahem Anna Karenina}...including the above twelve books {see my 2013 list here}.  Have you read any of these books?  What were your thoughts?  I'd love to hear :)

  1. I've read Anna Karenina, but none of the other ones. Maybe I should add some of them to my growing list!

  5. i know, i have told myself no more buying books until i read all of mine on my bookshelves. i must have 40+ still that are unread. but checking out of the library is still fair game :)
