What I've been reading in 2014...

Thanks to the kindle app on my smart phone, read.amazon.com, and my original kindle... I've been reading a lot more these past few years... I thought I'd share what I've currently read in 2014. There's no rhyme or reason to the books on this list. I have a lot of different interests in both fiction and non-fiction. I'm extremely interested in different religious/denominational/spiritual experiences and memoirs. And I love the Harry Potter series and A Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snickett.  I also love reading cookbooks, and re-reading juvenile adult (JA) books from my teenage years. What have you read this year? What to do plan to read before the year is over?

I generally read 4-5 books at a time, depending on my mood, time of day, etc...

You can find all these books by searching via name and author on Amazon if you're interested.

  1. The sequel to Deviation should be coming out next week! Actually, I guess the Kindle version of Diversion is already up! I am still reviewing final proofs on the paperback.

  2. Yay books! I also read several books at once usually, plus keep one on my iPod for listening in the car :) I'm also currently rereading Harry Potter, on book 3 right now - getting all excited for our trip to the new Diagon Alley at Universal in September!

  3. Love your book list! we are big readers in our house too. My 7 year old daughter is loving chapter books now and I so enjoy reading them with her. Priceless moments :)
