Books Read

I’m 15 books into my 50 book goal for 2014.  I hardly read a thing in March and very little in February so while the couch sitting has been annoying, it’s given me a chance to get back on track with my goals.  Here are the 15 I’ve tackled so far this year:

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD, *Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson,  A Widow for One Year by John Irving,  *The Jungle by Upton Sinclair

Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman,  *The Giver by Lois Lowry,  *Here I Go Again: A Novel by Jen Lancaster,  The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Terra Elan McVoy,  A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R. R. Martin

Sutton by J. R. Moehringer, *The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, *Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)  by George R. R. Martin,  *World War Z by Max Brooks

The * denotes books that I would recommend reading.  If I wasn’t already ruined by the show, I might have recommended the Game of Thrones books.  As much as I want to continue being a “the book is better”, in this instance, I can’t.  The books are good and I’ll continue to read them, but if you were going to pick one – I’d say watch the show.

Sutton, Bad Mother, and A Widow for One Year were also reads that I mostly enjoyed, but just not enough to go around recommending them to most people.

I’m also looking to compile 20 book recommendations for a project so please share your favorite reads with me in the comments!
