Last week I shared my top 10 Best Books of 2013. Out of everything I read last year, these were my very favorites. You’ll find books by Holley Gerth, Tina Fey, Francine Rivers, and a bunch more!

I loved hearing what you read in 2013, too! I’m hoping you’ll join in the comment section today, too, with what you’re planning to read in 2014.

I’ve never made this type of list before. I know, me, the list-queen, has never made a yearly “must read” book list. Shocker.

This year I’m aiming to read two books each month. I’m not sure how that will work with college reading, too…but it is SO going to happen. There are just way too many great books coming out this year that I’ve got to get my hands on!

A couple of these I began in 2013 and wasn’t able to finish before the calendar changed, and a few are ones I’ve read again and again. A new year means another time through each of my all-time favorite books.

Do you do this or am I the only crazy one here?

Don’t answer that.
