2014 Book List: Read in 1st Quarter

As most of you know, I love reading, and I read a lot. I'm not sure why it never occured to me to keep track of what I read, but I started doing so this year. Keeping a list, and rating the books. It will be neat to see how many I read by the end of the year. Judging by how many I've read so far this year, I am sure I will meet the goal I set for myself. Anyway, I just made it easy and rate the books Poor, Fair, Good, or Great. For the book to be great it really had to stand out to me and be one I would recommend to just about anyone. And to be poor it had to be one that I really just couldn't finish reading. Which doesn't happen that often with me.

Since 3 months have passed this year already, I decided to do a list of what I've read so far this year, and share it with you all. I see people often posting on Facebook looking for recommendations of what to read next.. so if anyone needs a pick, why don't you try one of the "good" or "great" ones off my list? Happy Reading ;)

  1. HOW do you have time for all these! I WISH i did! I have read 3 books, that's it, since January! :P

    1. A little bit of here and there reading all the time. LOL. I read after they go to bed, I read while waiting in lines, or at the dr.. a lot on weekends.. just whenever I get a chance. When I get hooked on a book I can't wait long to read more. LOL that sounds so nerdy but it's true. Ever since I was a kid I was like that.
