Year-end: Books of 2014

The only resolution I had at the beginning of the year was to read more. I used to be a bookwork but then things happened {ok, things like really great TV shows happened} and reading just took a backseat to everything. I wanted my love of reading back and so I sought to find it this year. 

I'm not sure if I got it back entirely. And I slacked. The last book I finished was back in August. But I'm not too entirely disappointed. 

Did you seek to read more this year? How did you do?

Here is what I read this year: 

 // Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn 

 // I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron 

 // Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella 

 // Dog Years by Mark Doty

 // Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? And Other Concerns by Mindy Kaling

 // Waiting by Ha Jin

 // I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron

 // The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

 // Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple 


  1. I will need to read these...I am behind on books, though being away unwell helpd me to start one. I hope you all have a gorgeous and glorious Christmas day...may you all be blessed with happiness and love!! Enjoy yourselves xx

  8. I always say that I want to read more but I usually only get through a handful of books a year. :P I really enjoyed Where'd You Go, Bernadette! Orphan Train and The Rosie Project were good ones too. I usually read with a Kindle, but I'm actually thinking about switching back to paper books... there's just something so nice about an actual book. :) Hope you have a merry Christmas and happy new year!

  9. you did really good Jane! i only read 3. hahaha but one, was I Am Malala and it was so touching. i hope to read more in 2015.

  10. I love Mindy's book. I find that I read more when I'm travelling. I have more time during and in between transit to read. Once I'm home, I'm too lazy or busy.

  11. GONE GIRL!!! That was my favorite book of this year. But I'm currently reading Mindy Kaling's and it's pretty damn good as well. I'm literally lol-ing reading it haha.

  12. I was planning on getting Gone Girl for my mom because I think she will love the engaging & twisting story. Which one was your favorite? I

    1. There were a few good ones in there but I loved Nora Ephron's books! :)
