2014

2014 is almost over, and I thought I would share how my reading has been this year, and share some thoughts about what I read.

As you may know, I started this blog this year, and the response has been amazing. Thank you so much for stopping by, once or several times!

I will be making a Top 10 of 2014 in the next couple of days where I'll go into what books I loved this year and why, but I still wanted to do a little summary first.
How many books I read:
I had set a goal on Goodreads to read 50 books this year, but I surpassed that sometime in August. The 50th book I read was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Overall, I read 80 books.
