2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last year I signed up for this challenge just intending to keep a list of the books I read throughout the year.  I signed up for 40 last year and ended up reading only 35 books.  I know it seems like it should be easy to read 35 books, but life has gotten crazy busy for me!  I have even gone 2 weeks without posting a book review for goodness sakes!  How embarrassing!  Oh well...I will not give up!  This year I am just lowering my expectations and decided to try to read 30 books.  I will list the books on this post and hopefully you will be able to click on the title after my review has posted.

This is my third year to do this challenge. I upped my books from 50 to 60, hoping it would push me to read more.

I hope you reach your goal!

Good luck! Goals are good, but I've learnedto cut myself a little slack when I can't quite make it. My goal this year is one more than last year, 57!
