2014 Reading — Challenges & Expectations

For me, starting the New Year off right includes setting new reading goals and figuring out all the books that I hope to read in the following year.  🙂

These are the challenges that I have set for myself this year…

2014 Reading Challenge  —  Goal: Read at least 110 books in 2014

New author to you reading challenge — Goal: Read at least 25 new-to-me authors in 2014

Library Book Challenge — Goal: Read at least 50 library books in 2014

The PhD- TBR pile Challenge — Goal: Read at least 50 books from my TBR pile in 2014

I’m looking forward to reading some great books this year!  Some of them have been on my to-read list for a while now and others are just coming out this year, but I’m hoping to get to as many of them as possible!  🙂

These are some of the books that I’m hoping to read in 2014…

Beowulf: Explosives Detection Dog (A Breed Apart, #3)Silenced (Alaskan Courgae, #4)The Dancing MasterLife Support (Grace Medical #3)A Hero's Promise (The Culper Ring #2.5)Circle of Spies (The Culper Ring #3)With Autumn's Return (Westward Winds #3)Butterfly PalaceFull Steam AheadThe Headmistress of Rosemere (Whispers on the Moors #2)With Every BreathNo One to Trust (Hidden Identity, #1)A Most Peculiar Circumstance (Ladies of Distinction, #2)A Talent for Trouble (Ladies of Distinction #3)North and SouthDiagnosis Death (Prescription for Trouble, #3)The Rose of Winslow StreetDeep Trouble (Wild West Weddings #2)Heart's Safe Passage (The Midwives, #2)Don't Look Back (Women of Justice, #2)A Killer Among Us (Women of Justice #3)Fatal Judgment (Guardians of Justice #1)The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3)The Fate of Arcrea (The Arcrean Conquest, #2)Sing (The Homeward Trilogy, #2)Claim: A Novel of Colorado (The Homeward Trilogy, #3)Made to Last (Where Love Begins #1)The Hobbit or There and Back AgainInto the WhirlwindLights and Shadows (Oregon in Love, Book 2)

Who knows if I’ll read all of these… but they’re part of my goal.  I think it will be interesting to look back at the end of the year and see if I did read them all.

Wish me luck!  🙂

    Great goals! I really hope you are able to meet them all! I love your list of books that you want to read this year! 17 are ones that I read and for the most part loved and five of them are on my to-read list for the year as well!

    I’ve never counted the book I read in a year. But I’m always reading at least one book, usually two or three. One upstairs, one downstairs and one that I’m reading as part of my Bible study.
    Best of luck with your goals! Their good ‘uns. 😉


I'd love to hear from you! :)
