#theyearinbooks 2014

I started so well with this project and then it went down hill in the Summer. I loved taking part as it pushed me to read more and the last few months I have let it slide. Though I have discovered audio books which is better than nothing.

I thought I would list all the books I have read this year.

How to Fall in Love by Celia Ahern
Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs
The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez
Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Pink Suit by Nicole Mary Kelby
The Last Day by Emily Organ
The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes
The Parenti Marriage by Penny Jordan
The Unpredictable Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell
Bad Girl by Roberta Kray
Rivals and Riders by Jilly Cooper
The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous by Jilly Cooper
Streetwise by Roberta Kray
The Family by Martina Cole
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
The One You Really Want by Jill Mansell
Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella
Twopence to Cross the Mersey by Helen Forrester
Liverpool Miss by Helen Forrester
Lime Street at Two by Helen Forrester
By the Waters of Liverpool by Helen Forrester
The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

23 in all! I am rather happy with that, an average of two a month.

My reads of the year are:

Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
The Last Day by Emily Organ

They are all worth checking out.

I am easing into 2015 so I plan to read:

Sealed with a Christmas Kiss by Rachael Lucas which is a little Christmas novella and a follow up to her first novel Sealed with a Kiss which is well worth a read too.


I am also half way through the audio version  of The Good Life by Martina Cole. I love her books but you don't appreciate how much swearing there is in her books until your hear it out loud! 

What does your year in books look like?
