2014 Year End Recap

I started 2014 with a goal to read 100 books. I was at that goal midway through the year. I then changed it to 125, then 150 and finally I just changed it to 175 in October. I figured with the holidays coming up I would slow down. I still managed to get some reading time, thankfully.

There are some books, maybe 10,  I have reread which are not listed on here. I guess those will off set the novellas by H.M. Ward. Novella really should not count as books read but it was the only way I could keep track of which ones I had already read.

This is what I read in 2014. Have you read any of them? Some of these books were really amazing, Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover, Tethered by LD Davis, and The Wife, The Maid, and the Mistress to name a few. Then there were the ones where I just wanted to pull my hair out. I won’t mention them.

I plan on being more diverse with my genres in 2015. After I finish Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, I am planning on reading A Good Marriage by Stephen King to start off the year with a good murder mystery.

One Week GirlFriend and Second Chance Boyfriend

This is a two for one. I wanted something light to read this weekend and these books were the answer. The story is cute. Really good looking people who want to be together with troubled pasts or families. You want them to get together. All the right emotions in the right places.

If you want something light to read these are the books to read. It took me a day and a half to read them both.

Here are the summaries:

One Week Girlfriend

Temporary. That one single word best describes my life these last few years. I’m working at a temporary job until I can finally break free. I’m my little brother’s temporary mother since our mom doesn’t give a crap about either of us. And I’m that temporary girl all the guys want to get with because I give it up so easily. According to the rumors, at least.

But now I’m the temporary girlfriend of Drew Callahan, college football legend and all around golden guy. He’s beautiful, sweet—and he’s hiding way more secrets than I am. He’s brought me into this fake life where everyone seems to hate me. And everyone seems to want something from him. The only thing he seems to want though is…

Me.

I don’t know what to believe anymore. All I know is, I think Drew needs me. And I want to be there for him.

Forever.

Second Chance Boyfriend

Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.

But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.

Love her…

If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.

Forever.
