2014 — A Year of Reading

Now that we are officially in 2015, I thought it was time to take a look at my reading year that was 2014.

Pictured above are all the books that I read that were counted up for the Goodreads Challenge. According to it, I read 63 books in 2014 (when really it was 65 because Goodreads still doesn’t provide us with a “re-read” option). It was a pretty good year — reading-wise — if I do say so myself, and it was definitely the first time that I read so much in one year. I’ve always loved books, but growing up with a mother who despises reading, it’s not something that I grew up with and it took me a very long time to rediscover my love for books. Needless to say that I was very late to the party and now have a lot of catching up to do.

Top 10 of 2014:

  1. Night Film by Marisha Pessl
  2. Dune by Frank Herbert
  3. Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
  4. Animal Farm by George Orwell
  5. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  6. The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud
  7. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
  8. Justice League: Identity Crisis by Brad Meltzer
  9. Avengers versus X-Men by Brian Michael Bendis and Jason Aaron
  10. Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Honourable mentions to short stories The Emperor of Mars by Allen M. Steele, Pernicious Romance by Robert Reed and Alan Bean Plus Four by Tom Hanks.

Here’s to a great year of reading, and may 2015 be as exciting.
