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:
- World After by Susan Ee – review
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – review
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – review
- Every Time I think of You by Jim Provenzano
- P.S. I Love You by Barbara Conklin – review

- Something Like Spring by Jay Bell
- Heavyweight by M.B. Mulhall
- Secret by Brigid Kemmerer
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz – review
- Collide by Riley Hart
- The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick – review
- A Package Deal by Mia Kerick
- Social Skills by Sara Alva – review
- Trouble & the Wallflower by Kade Boehme
- Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
- The Blue-Haired Boy by Courtney C. Stevens
- Sia by Josh Grayson
- Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin
- Spencer by J. P. Barnaby
- Reclaiming the Sand by A. Meredith Walters
- Not Just Friends by Jay Northcote

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.
Good luck! Am also on 150 for same reasons as yours 😉
Thanks – good luck to you too! I know what you mean – I am still trying to catch up with my reviews from last year – too many books lol 😉
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. 🙂
