My 2014 Goodreads Challenge

If you've liked my Facebook Page or follow my personal profile, then you know that I've been doing both the Goodreads and Empty Shelf Challenge (Jon Acuff) this year! And while I may not have finished my Empty Shelf Challenge *hangs head in shame* I did, however, complete my Goodreads Reading for the year!! *bells and whistles*

This year, I purposed to read:

  1. Books I've never read before as well as
  2. Authors I'd never read before

I'm very happy to have challenged myself! Some of the books were read in a formal or informal promise to review books for various formal and informal book launches (this is a GREAT way to great free books, PDF or otherwise!) but all of this together served to expand my literary palate for the year. So with that in mind, here are the 30 books I've read this year. Let me know if you've read any of these yourself as well as some of the new authors and books you read this year!
