Books I’ve Read-2014

I love reading. I always wish I had more time read…and I have even told my husband I wish I was paid to read!! (BTW, do you know any job description that says something like that?)


I would like to read one book a week at least, that will be my goal. Nevertheless with all the things I need to do as wife, work-at-home mom and student I need to give myself some grace 🙂 This is where I record my progress for the year.


Please leave a comment if you have read any of the books here listed, I would like to know your point of view {if you are a blogger and have a review on any, please feel free to link in the comments too). And also if you have some suggestions for me to add to my ever-growing “to read” list!


Thanks 🙂

  1. I have not read any if these yet but they look really good! Thanks for the sour outs. I am going to look at a few of them now! 🙂

    • Thanks Skye! Hoping to add a good bunch by the end of the year. Well, I’ll add them as I read them! Do you have any fave book? what are you reading at the moment?

      • lol…Blogs. Between writing three blogs and trying to keep up with the blogs I follow, it is all I have time for. We homeschool here, so that takes up all the rest of the time….on the side, I try and remember to breathe and play a bit. This summer, though, I do want to try and sit and read more simply to grow personally. Your list is awesome. 🙂

  2. Clearly we have the same taste in books! I’ve read almost all of these (reviewed some of them) and 2 of the 4 I haven’t read are on my list! I too want to make more time for reading. I used to read a lot more than I do now and I miss it!
