My 2014 Reading List – So Far

Reading plans for 2014 have commenced and I’ve gotten started on this year’s reading challenge as well worth one book completed. I wrote about it in my last books post because I do issued it on New Year’s Day… Close enough all around – to write about for 2013 and contribute to 2014’s challenge.

I plan to finish the two books I have on my currently reading list first and foremost. I’m making significant progress with A Dance with Dragons at the moment, while I am still waiting to get The Book Thief back. I hope I get it back soon. I am now number 21 of 70 in line for the book apparently.

My reading list (aside from the two above) for this year has six books on it and of course, more will be added. This year seems to be the year of series and trilogies for me so far. My reading list is as follows so far:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Divergent #2)
Allegiant by Veronica Roth (Divergent #3)
The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood (MaddAddam #2)
MadAddam (MaddAddam #3) by Margaret Atwood
The Plague Dogs by Richard Adams

I had a hold on Insurgent at the library and got my hands on it a couple of days ago. It was another quick, fun read like Divergent was. I now have a hold on Allegiant and hope to be getting my hands on it soon. It may be a little while since it is a new release and the line seems to be rather long…

I had a copy of The Silmarillion when I was about 12, and I have absolutely no idea what happened to it. Jay being awesome, remembered me telling him this and gave me a new copy for Christmas along with my new copy of Cat’s Eye. I’m not completely sold on Margaret Atwood as of yet; I’ve read three books of hers so far and loved two. I have heard good things about Cat’s Eye from more than one person and am looking forward to reading it.

The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam are the next two books in the trilogy started by Oryx and Crake – one of the two books my Margaret Atwood that I loved. I’m looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. I’m getting excited about these books. I think it is going to be a good year for reading!

Also, as a side note, after Oryx and Crake FLOORED me, I insisted that my best friend read it. She’s not a huge reader like I am, but so far she is loving it.

  1. I oved year of the flood too hope you do too! Good luck with the silmarillion! Its one of my favorites but it takes some patience to get through

  2. I love your book choices 🙂 I thoroughly enjoyed the Veronica Roth series and recently finished The Silmarillion. Right now I’m in the middle of Orson Scott Card’s Ender series (5 of 9, I think?) and am definitely looking forward to getting my hands on the GOT series.

    1. Make sure you read Divergent first, as Insurgent is the second in the trilogy. Good, exciting quick read for both!
