Books I Read in 2014

I was much better at reading in 2014 than in the years since having kids – thanks to Laid-Back Book Club and thanks to getting more sleep in general because the kids finally almost always sleep through the night. My crocheting habit has interfered with that slightly, but there is only so much time in a day. Here’s a rundown on what I read last year:

  1. Beautiful Ruins – Jess Walter
  2. April’s Fool – Blanche Marriott
  3. Picturing Perfect – Melissa Brown
  4. Cuckoo’s Calling – Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling)
  5. Mirror Image – Sandra Brown
  6. Mint Juleps and Justice AND Out of Focus – Nancy Naigle
  7. Life After Life – Kate Atkinson
  8. Hidden – Catherine McKenzie
  9. The Misremembered Man – Christina McKenna
  10. Satisfied – Jeff Manion
  11. Gilded – Christina Farley
  12. Driven to Distraction – Edward Hallowell
  13. The Husband’s Secret – Liane Moriarty
  14. Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
  15. The Interestings – Meg Wolitzer
  16. Wild – Cheryl Strayed
  17. Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
  18. The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
  19. The Rules of Inheritance:  A Memoir – Claire Bidwell Smith
  20. Looking for Alaska – John Green
  21. And Life Comes Back – Tricia Lott Williford
  22. If I Stay AND Where She Went – Gail Forman
  23. The Hardest Peace – Kara Tippets
  24. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes
  25. Eternal Night – Carina Adly Mackenzie

My favorites: Wild, Eleanor & Park, If I Stay, The Hardest Peace, Me Before You

The worst: Hidden, April’s Fool

Here’s what’s on the to-read “pile:”

  1. All the books on the calendar for Laid-Back Book Club in 2015
  2. Tiny Beautiful Things – Cheryl Strayed
