Top 14 Books Read in 2014 & Wrap-Up!

Today is Monday, January 5 and I realized I'm a little late with this post!  2014 has been a great reading year for me!  My senior year of high school helped me and encouraged me to read more & as a continuation from last year's reading success, I felt confident.  This year, my goal was to read 80 books.  Last year I read 86 books, so this was a goal I felt I could reach pretty easily.  Then college happened, and I only read 5 books within the span of 4 months.  It hurt me to not read as much as I wanted to.

When I got home for break, I needed to read 16 more books if I wanted to finish my goal.  Unfortunately, I was a book short.  But I finished that book the first day of 2015!  So it wasn't all bad.  Altogether I read 79 books in 2014.  Without further ado, I will reveal my top 14 books read in 2014!
