The Books of Yesteryear (2014)

Try as I might, I didn't read quite as many books in 2014 as I did the year before (a whopping 101 books in 2013). This year I managed 97 books, and instead of keeping a log here on the blog, I kept one on Pinterest. You can peruse it here if you are so inclined.

Follow Lori's board Reading Log 2014 on Pinterest.

It only lists 96 books, because one of those 97 was for endorsement and I've yet to see a cover image for it on line to add to my board. It was a historical novel called Laurel, by Susan Craft.

I tried many new to me authors in the CBA and general market, returned to some old favorites titles for a reread (or re-listen), read lots and lots of research for my own writing, made sure to read at least one memoir, continued my reading affair with YA Dystopian novels, and eagerly gobbled up the latest offering of some favorite authors, particularly historicals. But a few contemporaries too along the way.

So many books I didn't get to that I meant to read last year, but soon I'll get to them. Except, oh my, I've seen what's coming from some authors in the months ahead and looks like I'll be scrambling for time to work all the good books into my reading schedule.

I think it's never been a better time to be a book lover, writer or reader or both.

Happy New Year!
