2014 Booklist

One of my big goals for this year is to read more. As I mentioned before, I fell off the reading bandwagon for a few years during college and after graduation but this year has been quite the turn around for me. I joined Goodreads recently and have come to the realization that my to-read list is quite long. Here's to chipping away at that list in 2014, I'm shooting for one to two books a month. It's a little late, but I'd thought I'd share what I am planning on reading in the coming year.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple (January)
Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris (January)
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (January)
Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt (February)
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids by Dr. Laura Markham
A Gospel Primer for Christian by Milton Vincent
Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands by Paul David Tripp
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Currey
Stay Where You Are And Then Leave by John Boyne
Travelling Mercies, Some Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
When We Were Romans by Matthew Kneale
Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture by Shannon Hayes
Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider
A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver
Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Do you have a reading list for the year? I'd love to hear about what you are reading!


p.s. Friend me on Goodreads here if you're interested in keeping up with my thoughts on each book as I finish them.


  1. I started off this year well, finished 1 book in January :) That was my goal. I'm on the audio book route for February and am obsessed with Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids. So amazing. So so so so! Last year I made it through 1/2 of Radical Homemakers and got overwhelmed with how unradical I am. Perhaps I'll revisit soon. I hate leaving books unfinished.

  2. Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids is a serious read for me. It's easy to read, but so full of awesome information. I may end up buying it to reference back to!

  3. A thousand mornings is SO good! :)

  4. Ashamed to say I've never read any Mary Oliver! Not sure how I didn't at least read her in high school.

  5. She is my favorite. I think you'll love her. Phil got me her Blue Pastures book for my birthday last year and it's great too. My favorite poem of hers is West Wind #2 - has been a favorite of mine since HS! :)

  6. I love the idea of a book list. I need to do that. Then I'll actually research what I want to read ahead of time rather than just randomly choosing! Thank you for sharing your list...there's a few on yours that have caught my eye! :)
