my 2014 reading list.

Pin It

As I mentioned on Sunday, I want to read more books in the coming year. I finally got a library card back in September, and I've only checked out two books since then. Not cool!

I spent some time browsing Amazon's top book lists and put together my own list of books I plan to read in 2014.

DivergentVeronica Roth
InsurgentVeronica Roth
AllegiantVeronica Roth
In The BloodLisa Unger
Before We MetLucie Whitehouse
Mercy SnowTiffany Baker
The Museum of Extraordinary ThingsAlice Hoffman
The Book ThiefMarkus Zusak
The Last CamelliaSarah Jio
Morning GlorySarah Jio
The Union Street BakeryMary Ellen Taylor
The Fault In Our StarsJohn Green
The DinnerHerman Koch
The Perks of Being a WallflowerStephen Chbosky
Gone GirlGillian Flynn
The StorytellerJodi Picoult
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?Mindy Kaling
The Husband's SecretLiane Moriarty
Me Before YouJojo Moyes
Where'd You Go, Bernadette?Maria Semple

I'm currently reading Divergent and really enjoying it -- can't wait to read the other two books in the series. I'm also excited for Sarah Jio's books; The Last Camellia came out in 2013, and I believe Morning Glory will be published this spring. I adore Jio's style of writing! 

Have you read any of these books? Any book recommendations you'd like to make? Let me know!



  1. You are going to love Mindy's book! Such a fun fast read!

    I remember you mentioning Sarah Jio's books in another blog post and I got hooked on her after that. The Last Camilia is just simply haunting. I have goosebumps thinking about it - you'll love it! She also has Morning Glory out and I need to read next.

    I thought the Divergent storyline was a lot more thought-provoking than The Hunger Games. Cannot wait to see the movie.

    Books make me giddy. Tangent over.

    1. YES! So glad you like Sarah Jio as much as I do. CANNOT wait to read her latest books. I'm so close to finishing Divergent -- this silly thing called work is slowing me down. :)

  2. That's a great list! I'm going to suggest a classic written by a talented Nebraska author: My Antonia by Willa Cather. I read it this summer, and it is an excellent book. Very easy to read. I've heard that Yes, Chef: A Memoir by Marcus Samuelsson is really good! Happy reading!

    1. Done and done -- both have been added! :)

  3. Have your Kleenexes ready for The Fault in Our Stars! But one of my favorite books that I read last year!!

    1. Yikes! Thanks for the tip, friend. MISS YOU! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing this list! Towards the end of last year, I read the entire Divergent series, A Fault in Our Stars, and The Husband's secret and loved them all. :)

    If you like personal development/psychology type books, I highly recommend Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. She's been a TED speaker 2 or 3 times now and was an instant success. Great read!

  5. The Divergent trilogy is amazing! Love it! Also, The Book Thief and The Fault in our Stars are great books as well! I have Perks of a Wallflower sitting on my nightstand ready to be read! :) Great choices!
