Thoughts and other Miscellany

Looking back on December, looking forward to January

I read 35 books in 2014. I was aiming for 100 when I started the year, which is obviously ludicrous; I think 35 isn’t bad.

In December, I read 3 books:

The Girlfriends’ Guide to Pregnancy – Vicki Iovine – unconvincing.

The Patron Saint of Liars – Ann Patchett – I read this straight through in one day!

Lizzy and Jane – Katherine Reay – light but really enjoyable.

I totally failed to read or do anything at all for Advent with Alcott. Bad blogging event host.

I also started two books but didn’t get anywhere near finishing either of them: Death on the Cherwell by Mavis Doriel Hay and Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama (audiobook). I’m very close to giving up on the former but really enjoying the latter.

I wrote about my winter TBR a while ago, but specifically in January, I am hoping to read:The Painted Bridge by Wendy Wallace, One Night in Winter by Simon Sebag Montefiore and The Foundling Boy by Michel Deon. My concentration span is waning so I’m needing to move towards the lighter end of the fiction on my shelves!

  1. Happy New Year! Best to you in 2015. I always want to read 100 books in a year but seem to miss it worse when I set a too high goal. I really don’t see it happening for a long time because I have to get a job this year.
