Year of books - 2014 reads


In hopes of helping you stick to your New Years Resolutions, I'm sharing the outcome of one of my from last year. I love binging on Netflix just as much as the next girl, but I stuck to my goal of reading at least one book per month last year and ended up reading 16 books! 

So, what were the highlights?

If you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of mysteries and thrillers sprinkled in with a little bit of women's literature. I tried my best to add non-fiction into the mix in the form of memoirs, but had a very hard time finding one that I fell in love with that made me want to read more. Who knows, maybe this year will be the year for non-fiction? 

If you're curious about all of the books I read last year, you can read my thoughts on each book in my year of books part one, two, three and four posts. 

I'd love to hear your favorite recent reads! I'm always adding to my must-read list.
