I read some great books this year! I didn’t surpass last year‘s number, but I sort of also rediscovered listening to music for a couple months. Still, I guess 28 books isn’t too shabby.
A lot more fiction has seeped into my reading list the last two years, which still kind of surprises me. But Audible just makes it so much more easy to fit books into my schedule, and enjoy them, so I’m welcoming it.
Here’s my 2014 reading list:
- Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
- A Path Appears by Nick Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn
- Undaunted by Christine Caine
- We Are All Weird by Seth Godin
- The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett
- Doctor Who by Stephen Cole
- Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth
- Star Wars by George Lucas and Brian Daley
- The Locust Effect by Gary Haugan and Victor Boutros
- Snake Oil by Becca Stevens
- Veronica Mars by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
- No Compromise with Slavery by William Lloyd Garrison
- Where Am I Eating? by Kelsey Timmerman
- Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung
- The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens
- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
- The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
- Divergent series by Veronica Roth
- The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (Yes, again! The audio version is superb.)
I was sort of in a “classics” mood this year and tried to also do A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Um, maybe I’ll revisit them in the future, but they’ve been abandoned for now. Is it me, or is Dickens hard to read outside of A Christmas Carol? Will I have better luck with David Copperfield (book, not magician 😉 ). And I remember liking Tom Sawyer, so maybe Huck’s just not for me. Or maybe I’ll just stick to the movies and plays.
Anywho, this is the list of who had my ear the past 12 months. What about you? Anything I should add to my 2015 list?
