My Books of 2014

I'm a slow reader.  Always have been.  I also don't get much time to sit & read during the day so my only time to read is when I go to bed.  So it's not a lot in a year.  But all the same, I am quite pleased with my little list for the books I did manage this year.  Some good & some OK.  I don't think there were any really bad ones.  If there were I think I would have stopped reading.

  • I Remember You - Harriet Evans
  • That Liverpool Girl - Ruth Hamilton
  • Perfect Match - Sinead Moriarty
  • Letters From Skye - Jessica Brockmole
  • The Rose Petal Beach - Dorothy Koomson
  • Cupcakes at Carrington's - Alexandra Brown
  • Hope Was Here - Joan Bauer
  • The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
  • Brown Owl's Guide to Life - Kate Harrison
  • The Bookstore - Deborah Meyler
  • The Ice Cream Girls - Dorothy Koomson
  • The World Beneath - Cate Kennedy
  • Love Walked In - Marisa de los Santos

My favourite for the year was definitely The Icecream Girls by Dorothy Koomson.  Although not an easy read because of the subject matter, it was gripping & painful to read in parts.  I have read most of her books & this is one of the best.

I have such a stack lined up for 2015 so it will be interesting to see what I actually manage & what suits my moods & tastes at the time!  I am slowly getting through the stack on the book shelf.  I then take them to the second hand book shop or the op shops.  No shortage of new books coming my way though that's for sure.

Wow - you read loads!!!

You've just inspired me with a new resolution - to read 12 books in 2015. Surely one a month could be doable?!?!
