Goodreads 2014 Reading Challenge

Goodreads 2014 Reading Challenge

My final challenge of the year is the Goodreads 2014 Reading Challenge. I have taken part in this challenge for 2 years now (I challenged myself to read 100 books in 2012 and 250 books in 2013). I have decided to set my challenge to 150 this year, mainly to give myself some time off for blogging and…you know…real life! I love to read so having a higher challenge last year wasn’t too much of a struggle but I would like to concentrate a bit more on other things in 2014 so 150 seems like a doable amount!

I am not going to preselect my books for this challenge ahead of time, instead I will just read what I feel like (and what falls under my various other challenges probably!).

Here is my list that I have read so far:

  1. World After by Susan Ee – review
  2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – review
  3. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – review
  4. Every Time I think of You by Jim Provenzano
  5. P.S. I Love You by Barbara Conklin – review
  6. Out of Hiding by Mia Kerick
  7. Something Like Spring by Jay Bell
  8. Heavyweight by M.B. Mulhall
  9. Secret by Brigid Kemmerer
  10. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  11. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz – review
  12. Collide by Riley Hart
  13. The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick – review
  14. A Package Deal by Mia Kerick
  15. Social Skills by Sara Alva – review
  16. Trouble & the Wallflower by Kade Boehme
  17. Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
  18. The Blue-Haired Boy by Courtney C. Stevens
  19. Sia by Josh Grayson
  20. Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin
  21. Spencer by J. P. Barnaby
  22. Reclaiming the Sand by A. Meredith Walters
  23. Not Just Friends by Jay Northcote
  24. Painting Fire on the Air by J. P. Barnaby
  25. 1/27: An ICos Anthology by Santino Hassell & Aism Nym
  26. Taboo for You by Anyta Sunday
  27. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  28. Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

I know…I really need to get my finger out and catch up with my reading!

**EDIT March 30 2014**

I have decided, after much deliberation, to reduce my reading challenge to 100 books this year. It is for a myriad of reasons but mainly I have a bit too much on at the moment to be able to keep up with reading like I used to. 100 books still seems pretty doable so I have decided that the best idea for me is to lower the challenge.

  1. Good luck with your challenge! Sometimes it’s necessary to make time for other things too, which is something I plan to be better at this year also. But I hope you enjoy all your reading. And great start to the list! I loved World After, and both The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves. 🙂

    • Thanks! I know – I read a lot last year but had such poor planning it was difficult to make time for other things I enjoy doing. I also left myself with very little time for blogging. Hope things go to plan for you this year too!

      I really enjoyed World After too and I think Maggie Stiefvater just gets better with every book. 🙂
