What I read in 2014 –I Aimed for 45 books, but ended up reading 82!


A few years ago, just as I started writing, I saw Brian Keene blog a list of what he read that year. There were 100 titles. My jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe that that was possible. I always hoped to read between 12 and and 24….

This yea, I set my goal on Goodreads for 45. A nice, high number (for me). Well, thanks in part to the explosion of novellas, I managed to read 82 books this year! Some were short, some not so short. I started and couldn’t finish 3 books that I thought were awful. They are not listed here.

Here is my “read” list for 2014. I highlighted my favorites. You can check out my reviews here: Glenn’s Reading Challenge
