It all started when the public library would offer those summer reading contests. Do you remember these? Read a certain number of books and then you would get a free ticket to Six Flags Great America. I wanted that ticket to Six Flags … bad. So I read and read and read some more. It was bribery … but it got me reading, and since then I’ve been hooked on books.

I did a LOT of reading in 2014. It was one of my major goals and with all the travel we did, I managed to read a ton (hello, reading at the beach might be one of my favorite hobbies, ever.). Plus, I’m a pretty fast reader (or so I like to think) – especially when I have a page-turner in my hands.

Here are 10 books I read in 2014 … and LOVED.


I am Malala // Malala Yousafzai

Unbroken // Laura Hillenbrand

Steal Like An Artist // Austin Kleon

#GIRLBOSS // Sophia Amoruso

The Fault In Our Stars // John Green

Picture Perfect Posing // Roberto Valenzuela 

Where She Went // Gayle Forman

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? // Mindy Kaling

The Cuckoo’s Calling // Robert Galbraith

Orange is the New Black // Piper Kerman

But if you aren’t really into reading, and you are only going to read three books this year, read Unbroken, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and I am MalalaThey will not disappoint.

What books did you read last year that were AMAZING? I’m always looking for recommendations.
