To-Read list: 2014 Edition!

So I wanted to make a blog post about the books I want to read this year. This is not all of them, of course. I could only fit about 1/3 or 1/4 of them on here right now.. but these are the ones I already have to read or am planning to get in the next few months. So let me know... have you read any of these? Or have any other suggestions for me? Let me know!!!

She is a great author. This is her brand new book, so I am looking forward to it.

No, I never got around to reading it, I am always behind.

She has written a million books now and they are starting to be very similar, but I feel the need to read this one too! 

She is one of my fave authors! She hasn't come out with a book in FOREVER, so I am thrilled!

Her books usually make me upset or sad, but she is a great writer.

I read GONE GIRL this past year and it was awesome (although twisted) so I think I will try this one, also. But the name does worry me a little bit, ha.

I heard this one might be a little messed up also, but I am intrigued.

Picked this up on one of the Amazon deals of the day back at Christmas.

Heard a lot of good things about this book.

This was up at the top of the BEST SELLERS list on Amazon. I am surprised I haven't gotten it yet!

Loooove Neta Jackson! Have read all her stuff so far.

This one is being made into a movie soon.

This one was on my Christmas wishlist this year, and I can't wait to read it.

And here are a few NONFICTION I want to read, as well.

I know this has been out forever, but I have heard so many positive things about it.

Yes, that is DJ Tanner from Full House ;) She has grown up to be very beautiful, motivating, and so forth. I hope her book is good.

Picked this up at the Christian bookstore back around Thanksgiving. Figured I could always used a good, encouraging book. Especially since I suffer from some anxiety and other related issues.

Got this on Kindle recently. Supposed to be about focusing more on filling your life with God and putting a religious spin on weight loss. I have tried everything else, so I figured why not?!

This looks really interesting. If you are a fellow kid of the 80s or 90s, you probably know all about Nickelodeon and SLIME!!! This book makes me feel so nostalgic about my childhood! Every sat. night spent watching Doug and Rugrats.. yeah baby. And my husband admits that he had a crush on CLARISSA from Clarissa Explains it All! ;)

Yes, they have written a ton of books already, but this is from the wives' perspectives, so I think it will be an interesting read. I just love their family!

  1. I am really struggling with "The Book Thief". It's well written but just...boring. I'm listening to it on Audible and I'm switched books every time I start back with it because it makes me sleepy driving. I'm not sure what the hoopla is about.

    I saw the Nickelodeon book too and then I read the reviews and they were terrible. Basically, the book is literally just a combination of quotes from old Nickelodeon directors, actors, producers, etc. Most of which you probably have no idea who they are (I didn't know any of them really). When I read the reviews I thought, it can't be that bad. But I listened to an excerpt and yes, it is really that bad. I had no idea what was going on and who they were talking about. Good concept, but I'm not wasting any money on it.

    Just to not be Debbie Downer, I did hear the Husband's Secret is a pretty good read as well as the Duck Dynasty book. I plan to pick that one up soon as well.
