Going into last summer I was in a reading slump. There was so much to read but nothing was really keeping my attention. There were a few I read that I enjoyed a lot, but overall it was a slow reading summer and a slow reading year. In the past I have set a summer goal of 30 to 35, this past summe rI read 12. TWELVE books. Sheesh!!
But this fall I kind of readjusted my thinking. My priorities have shifted a bit and if I don;t get everything read and reviewed I am finding ways to be okay with that. I only read 55 books this year, my lowest in the past 8 years by far, but that's ok too. My main goal each year is a book a week. My lofty goal is 100. I completed my main goal and I am okay with that.
My favorite books of the year were: (links take you to my reviews)
My True Love Gave To Me
Side Effects May Vary
Dorothy Must Die
The Fault in Our Stars
The Shadow Throne
Eleanor & Park
These are all five cookie books except for Half-Bad. That is my only four cookie book on this list. I added it because the world Sally Green created was so interesting and I am highly anticipating the sequel (which is on my Nook right now so I will be able to continue on soon!). There were several other four cookie books I read, but these are the ones that really stand out for me.
I also discovered I didn't review Eleanor & Park even though it was one of my favorite reads. Maybe I will have to do that sometime this year.
Coming up...my 2015 reading goals.
How did you do in 2014?
